My reply would be yeah, go ahead. It has best medicinal values and also recommended by more people for different types of needs. In Ayurveda, the importance of Aloe Vera is more importance.

It is good to hang Aloe Vera in balcony area.

Very good and natural beauty care.

Good food for healthy hair.

Useful in healing most skin diseases.

But just Google and read more about its benefits and uses, you will find it interesting .

Read my post on Aloe Vera in health and beauty forum please.

How to grow Aloe

Post by lilmogirl » Mon Mar 21, 2011 3:06 pm

My grand mother had an aloe plant in her front yard. It loved the sandy soil it was rooted in. It's leaves were huge, almost 3 inches wide at the base of the leaf. I remember when I would get a sun burn grandma would get a leaf from the plant, cut it open and rub the succulent insides all over me. She used it for every thing that had to do with the skin and sometimes she would scrape out the pulp and eat it too.

Anyway, I found this information at the following website. I hope it will be of use:  ALOE : caring for the plant, etc.

es, and many people do. In many European countries it is common for some to have an Aloe Vera pot plant. The leaves can then be broken off and the gel squeezed out to treat cuts, burns and grazes.

In the Americas, Africa and Australia the climate is much better for growing Aloe Vera outside. Note the gel in these plants is at its best when the plant reaches maturity (after 5 years).

you buy aloe vera from a nursery. then bring it home. Keep it in a shadowed place. Do not use much water in the tub. It likes dry type of soil.

If you want to grow plant at home, then make sure that it gets sufficient bright light. You can keep it near west-facing window and if the pot is placed on a windowsill, then try to avoid direct sunlight. During winters, keep the plant indoors and ensure that it gets enough bright light.

Can anyone help me regarding caging around my garden? I see my trees and plants every morning get damaged. I feel that there is some animal who keeps ambushing around. Can Orlando Locksmith Services help me in this regard or any other locksmith services?
