The Origins of Aloe Vera
The Aloe barbadensis plant is prized as one of its known healing properties, used since ancient times from the Egyptian pharaohs to Chinese, Mexicans and North Americans. Aloe vera has a myriad of benefits and has been used in the past to help with wounds, hair loss and digestive issues.
Nowadays, aloe vera is used in cosmetics and personal care products like moisturisers, soaps and after-sun lotions. The aloe vera leaf consists of a gel that can be extracted and made into all these products, especially those designed for skin and wound healing. Aloe vera can also be made into pure aloe vera juice as a drink for better digestion and other benefits.
