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.
