Aloe Vera

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
