Plant ALOE VERA in pots placed in full sunshine. Water well during the spring and summer while the plant is growing. Bring pots inside to overwinter and water sparingly - about every 2 weeks should suffice.
Aloe vera is easy to propogate. The plant will produce new plants as side shoots while it's actively growing; just remove these and place in a new pot with moist soil.
Use it: Break open the thick leaves and apply the gel that seeps out to your skin to help heal burns, rashes, cuts and sunburn. Aloe Vera is 96 percent water and 4 percent active ingredients, including amino acids and enzymes that nourish damaged skin
