Summer is just around the corner, and more than likely someone is going to get that dreaded sunburn. Not only is it painful, but it’s dangerous. Luckily, the Earth provides us with a healing and cooling healing plant know as Aloe Vera.
Aloe can be stripped of it’s outer green layer and mashed to get the healing juices from the inside. It can be placed directly on the sunburn as often as needed. I would suggest this with children, because most store bought sun burn relievers can actually sting.
Sunburn is not the only skin problem that Aloe Vera can help to heal. It can be applied to skin conditions like E czema and Psoriasis . Most treatments for these problems are costly and Aloe Vera may be an affordable solution. Keep it handy for burns, insect bites, and allergic reactions.
Dry scalp can be treated by applying Aloe Vera juice to the scalp and works well to help remove cradle cap in babies. It’s wonderful to use in your hair and even to use to wash your face. It will not heal acne, but it will help reduce redness. You can use it for your daily moisturizer.
You can actually drink Aloe Vera juice. It helps with sore joints, diabetes and helps to speed up your metabolism to help you lose weight. If you buy a store brought product, make sure you read the directions because too much Aloe Vera can have a laxative effect.
It’s amazing that all these uses comes from nature and very easy to use. Pick up your own Aloe Vera plant today and enjoy all the benefits of knowing you can heal yourself.
