Herb For Wednesday

My herb choice of the day is Aloe

     Family: Liliaceae Genus: Aloe     Species: Vera (and over 500 others) 
     Also known as Socotrine, Cape, Curaiao, Barbados, Zanzibar Aloe 
     Rx:  cut mature (lower) leaves for burns, scalds, sunburns, or cosmetic benefits 
     Aloe is one of the most widely used herbs for burns, scalds, scrapes, sunburn, and an incredible infection fighter.  It can also be used to smooth and beautify skin. It can be grown indoors in a pot or in the right climate you can also grow it outdoors.

  1. We always keep a pot of aloe growing on the patio. It's the best for sunburn!
