Aloe is also used for decorative purposes and grows successfully indoors as a potted plant. Aloe vera juice and gels have been used for centuries to treat or alleviate hundreds of health conditions.

Here are 6 reasons YOU should be using aloe vera:

  1. Burns – One of the most well-known properties of aloe is the ability to promote healing of burns and sunburn. The aloe gel provides a protective layer over the burn and provides natural compounds that accelerate healing. If you’ve ever cut a growing aloe leaf you will see that it seals and heals itself quickly, it works very much the same way with your skin.
  1. AcneAcne and pimples are an external skin condition that can benefit from the application of aloe gel. Aloe Vera does not cure acne but will help reduce the swelling, inflammation and redness associated with it. The gel is best applied after cleansing the skin and pores. Aloe gel will seal and shrink pores, increase your skin’s collagen production and provide antiseptic properties.
  1. Sore Throat and Strep Throat – Aloe juice can alleviate sore throat and strep throat pain and help cure strep throat. The antiseptic properties will help fight the bacteria causing strep throat without destroying your body’s “good” bacteria. Gargling with aloe juice will coat the throat and ease the associated pain.
  1. Toe Nail Fungus – The incidence of toenail fungus is increasing and becoming a common affliction. Prescription medications for toenail fungus can cause side effects or damage to your liver and kidneys. Clean your feet thoroughly and apply aloe gel to your nails twice a day until the fungus is gone.
  1. Constipation – Aloe has been used as a natural laxative as it increases the amount of intestinal water, stimulates mucus secretion and increases intestinal peristalsis, the movement of food through the intestines. Aloe also reduces inflammation and naturally improves the frequency of bowel movements. Start with a 1/4 cup of aloe juice twice daily then adjust the amount based on results.
  1. Hair and Scalp Treatment – You can use aloe as a natural dry hair or scalp treatment to improve the strength and thickness of your hair. Aloe’s antibacterial and antifungal properties also help control dandruff and remove dead cells from the scalp.
