What makes Aloe Vera gel a must have in your kit? Even with science and technology at it’s apex, the mysterious ways through which Mother Earth gifts us, or looks after us, still continues to confound and baffle us. Our nature is nothing short of a treasure trove filled with little bundles of herbal gems , that are absolutely incomparable and inimitable . Trying to replicate their worth and properties are, (in my conservative and humble opinion) impossible. These botanical geniuses are not only recognized for being therapeutic; but they also help alleviate a myriad of health and skin care conditions. With most of them being safe to ingest, they are often super effective even for topical use. Herbal remedies are in play since time immemorial, they are known to have various healing qualities and also help provide anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties.
There are countless herbs that have been passed on for centuries and centuries by our ancestors, which boast about relieving skin and hair care problems. Lemongrass, Lavender, Lemon balm, Turmeric, Neem, Basil, Borage, Jasmine, Liquorice, Rosemary, Chamomile, Tea tree…. etc. etc. the list goes on and on. One such modest plant, that is known for its remarkable and wondrous properties is our very own, resilient, succulent, Aloe Vera. Often hidden just below our noses, this houseplant looks and makes for a fabulous spot of green in the corner of our homes. Arranged as a beautiful rosette, Aloe Vera is evergreen and perennial in nature which originated in the Arabian peninsula, and is now considered to be an invasive genus, in various parts of the world. The Aloe Vera plant has thick succulent leaves, which are pointy at the top, and have spiky thorns on the rim. It is the source of a gooey, colorless gel that has innumerable medicinal properties. Packed with abundant nutrients, Aloe Vera is a powerhouse that aids as an immunity booster and can also be used topically to enhance your skin and hair.
