Aloe Vera is a versatile medicinal plant native to desert areas. With its thick, fleshy leaves, the aloe is a little reminiscent of cacti, but it is a lily species closely related to the Affodil.
The Aloe Vera is cultivated in all subtropical and tropical regions of the world.
The aloe has been known as a medicinal plant for over 6,000 years. Aloe and its products use the gentle gel or yellowish resin from their yellow juice. Gel and resin are as different in their effects as if they were two different medicinal plants.
The gel that is stored in the leaves has healing effects, especially on the skin. It is also called “aloe vera gel” and is extracted from the water storage tissue of the leaves.
