Aloe vera

(Aloe barbadensis)

Aloe vera

Known as the “Plant of immortality”, has been widely known and used medicinally for years, both topically and internally.  Aloe Vera is a staple in most Belizean yards and can be grown indoors as well. Aloe Vera is an antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and supports skin regeneration.  It is known to deeply penetrate the skin, up to 7 layers deep, and is therefore the best moisturizer for dry skin. When used on the skin, Aloe Vera promotes collagen and elastin repair for healthy skin, reduces inflammation, accelerates healing of skin lesions, and is a natural pain killer.

It has been used also for burns, sunburns, insect stings and bites, psoriasis, cuts, scrapes, abrasions, allergic reactions, cold sores, chicken pox, shingles, vaginitis, acne, warts, fatigue, skin infections, dermatitis, dandruff, boils, varicose veins, oedema, dry or flaking skin, skin ulcers, canker sores, stretch marks, on joints for arthritis, frostbite and electrical injury. Aloe Vera should not be used on deep, open wounds or surgical wounds as it may slow their healing. People with latex allergy should not use the skin of the Aloe Vera leaf.
