All About Aloe

By Patrice Grell Yursik

There’s a special succulent that is beloved by cultures around the world. It’s used for medicine, agriculture, and even decoration! It grows wild in deserts or tropical climates, but it also thrives indoors as a potted plant. It originates from the Arabian Peninsula, and now grows wild all around the world, where it is especially popular in Africa, Asian countries and throughout South America and the Caribbean. Allow us to tell you all about aloe, so you’ll know all the great benefits we’re giving your skin with our bestselling face masks!

Aloe vera (aloe barbadensis miller), is known for its soothing properties. In sizzling hot climates worldwide, aloe is cultivated to repair burns and scars, for internal cleansing and cooling, and for calming skin inflammation. Aloe can be used inside and out in so many ways! Some people apply aloe gel to their burns or scars because this evergreen perennial succulent can soothe burns and help prevent post-sunburn redness and peeling.  Others cut the leaf and eat the pith, intending to relieve everything from heartburn to halitosis or high blood sugar. Others just enjoy yummy, refreshing aloe drinks that soothe their parched throats while benefiting their digestive systems. No matter how you choose to use it, aloe is all good!
