The first aid plant!

Some years ago, i was planting flowers on my balcony for spring, and my mom arrives with this succulent type of plant in her hand and tells me to plant it in a pot. My reaction at first was :”i’m planting flowers, colorful, pretty flowers can’t you see?”, but she insisted and told me it will come in handy one day …

Well, as usual, she was right! The plant was Aloe Vera, and it lived beautifully on my balcony.


One hot summer day, my youngest came back from the beach his back completely burned (of course he didn’t listen to me and use sunscreen!). He was in pain, and even the after sun cream didn’t help. So we cut of a leaf from the plant, opened it up and used the gel to put on my son’s back. Wow is all i can say, it is a miracle remedy; no more pain, and the sunburn was cured very quickly.

Aloe Vera is most commonly known for its soothing gel used on sunburns, cuts and scars. It has also incredible, natural skin care properties.

The gel inside the leaf contains at least 75 nutrients, 20 minerals, 12 vitamins, 18 amino acids and 200 active enzymes!

Aloe can be taken internally, for mouth and stomach ulcers, nasal and sinuses, bowels, lungs and genital tracts.

It’s the only known vegetarian source of vitamin B12,and  numerous studies indicate that it is a general tonic for the immune system, helping it to fight illness of all kind.

The juice of the plant is considered the finest colon cleanser! In fact some cancer patients have even stated that Aloe Vera seems to reduce nausea, increase energy, and may help to minimize low blood counts caused by chemotherapy or radiation.

Aloe Vera in almost all its forms possesses multiple medicinal qualities that can improve your immune system and help your body recover more quickly.

So come on, plant some in your garden, on your balcony, and as my mother said “you won’t regret it!”
