    I just bought an Aloe Vera plant as I heard it had healing properties in it. Other than healing Cuts and Burns, what else could I use it for? :?:

    Aloe Vera ....... good for the colon system too and a very good plant to have

    Aloe is a southern African plant related to the lillies
    dry leaves of this plant can be boiled for the juices and used as an laxative
    also help keep the colon system clean the large intestine extending from the
    cecum to the rectum or constipation !

    also good for congestion or coats the lower stomach for viruses.
    you can add your own flava if you can't drink it plain or str8
    Aloe vera is a common plant to have in every home .

    Hope this helps and give you another reason to have it and what power
    this plant has and can do for the Human body externally and internally.

    I really don't know about lotion and the power of making it but many
    lotions has Aloe vera as well as many kinds of juices even face soap
    I was told that you can wash your face in Aloe vera juices for a healther
    smoother skin and tone .....good for spots and bloshies in the face .

    be sure to alway keep one of these great African plants in your home
    I have 4 the biggest one is call Ma-Din and the others are named helt/free
    great plants .

    That was very informative Rich, I knew that the plant was good externally for skin problems, but I didn't know that it was good for the digestive system as well. Thanks for the info.

    yes deb0 it's very good for burns / cuts and irriated skin works as a soother
    cream it has a healing power an african herb of some sort but works for
    human body for a number of things and also makes a great house plant
    warrant off spiders .

    Aloe:: A southern African small plant need not a lot of water and some sunlight
    Vera:: is the truth , truthfulness of devotion and conformity with facts
    given it's name :

    A must for every home
