Different Ways To Use Aloe Vera

Aloe-Vera_4

Aloe vera is one of those household natural plants that have been around since forever mostly because of its all-round flexibility. From health to skin conditions, beauty products, beverages, you name it. This green plant is an elixir on its own and rightly so because of its superpowers, for example, producing natural antiseptics that are able to kill mold, bacteria, fungi and viruses.

I’m gonna be sharing various ways it can be used to maximise its potential.

Aloe vera can be used to:

  • Fight Athlete’s foot;
  • Provide an anecdote for allergic reactions;
  • Moisturize dry skin;
  • Treat acne;
  • Prevent stretch marks;
  • Brighten skin by decreasing pigmentation and dark spots;
  • Speed up hair growth;
  • Treat minor vaginal irritations;
  • Relieve gastrointestinal disorders like indigestion (when ingested);
  • Lower blood sugar levels;
  • Relieve heartburn, arthritis and rheumatism pain;
  • Reduce cholesterol;
  • Minimize infection and inflammation of ear and eye;
  • Ease congestion, stomach ulcers and urinary tracts problems;
  • Rejuvenate the uterus;
  • Increase energy level;
  • Help to maintain a healthy body weight;
  • Maintain healthy gums and mouth;
  • Treat respiratory disorders;
  • Treat various skin diseases like eczema,psoriasis and itchy skin; and
  • Eliminate itchy scalp and scalp dryness (owing to its anti-pruritic properties).

And you know, the most amazing thing about it is that it can be grown anywhere: indoors which also doubles as a decoration or outdoors in your compound. Just uproot an Aloe vera plant and replant it where you like. As long as you take proper care of it, it will grow strong and healthy enough for plucking. So please don’t overlook or underrate that Aloe vera plant you see by the roadside because it is powerful and greater than many antibiotics.

  1. I have left my hair without relaxing for almost ten months, though my hair is scanty and very soft.how do I use aloe vera ta keep the hair healthy? and which type of hair creme relaxer would you recommend for such type of hair.kudos for what you have been doing.

    1. Hi Halima. You can make a hair spritz using aloe vera juice. This can help to reduce shedding. You can also mix aloe vera juice with your deep conditioner. Since you have hair that is very scanty and soft, you might not really need a relaxer. We have two natural hair bloggers on this blog, Tunrie and eBunite who you can follow. If you insist on relaxing your hair, use a relaxer for fine hair and don’t leave it on your hair for longer than 15 minutes. We have Silk Elements Mega silk relaxer (mild strength) available in our store if you are interested. http://www.sizzelle.com/hair-products-in-nigeria/Relaxers/Silk-Elements-MegaSilk-Relaxer-Shea-butter
