Aloe Vera: The Plant of Immortality


Recently I had a request to do a blog on the health benefits of Aloe Vera. I do have a small Aloe Vera plant at home that is growing like crazy! I knew that you could apply it as a first aid treatment for burns and scratches, but I didn’t know it had so many other uses.

Aloe Vera is considered to be a miracle plant and has numerous skin, health and hair benefits. It is being used as a key ingredient in foods and in energy drinks as Aloe Vera comes in a variety of forms.

1. Detoxification

Like seaweed and chia seeds, the Aloe Vera gel works the same way to move through the intestinal tract absorbing toxins and eliminating waste from your body.

2. Digestion

Aloe can soothe and cleanse the digestive track and help improve digestion. If you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome and acid reflux, aloe can help keep intestinal flora in balance.

3. Skin

Aloe is great for your skin! It helps relieve and prevent itching, hydrates and moisturizes the skin and rejuvenates skin cells. Aloe also helps with the elasticity of the skin making it more flexible through collagen and elastin repair.

4. Health

Aloe Vera contains 12 vitamins, 20 minerals, 20 amino acids and over 200 other active components which can promote health and vitality for the entire body. Regular consumption can help you stabilize your body weight, improve your immune system, and increase your energy level.

5. Many more

Aloe Vera can also: strengthen weak nails, fade stretch marks, and combat bad breath. Aloe can also be used as a hair conditioner fighting against dry scalp while even promoting hair growth!

How to use Aloe Vera:

– Aloe Vera Gel (Bottle format) that you can find at most drug stores

– Aloe Vera Gel Capsules

– Grow your own plant

If you choose to grow your own Aloe Vera plant, you simply break off a piece and squeeze out the inner gel for minor cuts, burns and scrapes. If you are going to ingest it you have to be careful to avoid the yellowish liquid between the pure inner gel and the outer skin (it can cause an upset stomach).

Hydrating And Moisturizing Aloe Vera Face Mask

  • 1 tablespoon of powdered seaweed (kelp)
  • ½ tablespoon of Aloe Vera gel
  • ½ tablespoon of honey (preferably raw)
  • 1 capsule of vitamin E
  • A few drops of essential oils (e.g. Tea tree, lavender or rosemary oil)
Combine all ingredients together and mix well, squeeze out the contents of vitamin E capsule and add to the mixture. Apply mixture to face, throat, and neck. Leave on for approximately 20-30 minutes. Rinse using warm water.
