Aloe Vera for Skin Care

Exfoliate away rough skin! Mix 1/2 cup of aloe vera with just enough brown sugar or baking soda to get a gritty texture. In the shower, rub the mixture on your elbows, heels, arms, or anywhere else that needs softening.

Feeling a zit coming on? Mix 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel with 1 teaspoon almond milk and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Apply to your face, and let sit for a few minutes before rinsing.

Need an anti-aging boost? Mix 1 tablespoon aloe with 1 teaspoon 100% raw organic coconut oil. Rub the mixture between your hands until it’s warm, then apply to your face. Let sit for 15 minutes, then rinse.

Aloe Vera for Injuries

If you have a bug bite, cut, scrape, or burn, simply rub aloe vera on the affected area! It’s particularly good for sunburn.

Aloe Vera for Hair Care

For general hair treatment, peel a big chunk of aloe vera. Blend it until smooth, apply it all over your hair, let sit for 15 minutes, then rinse.

Speed ​​up hair growth by massaging the blended aloe vera into your scalp. Let it sit for 30 minutes before rinsing.

Reduce dandruff by mixing blended aloe vera juice with coconut milk and wheat germ oil. Massage the mixture into your scalp, then rinse.

Aloe Vera in Your Diet

Since aloe vera is anti-inflammatory, it’s great if you have stomach inflammation or just feel bloated. It’s also a natural source of B12, so it’s fantastic for a vegan diet! To take advantage of its benefits, add it to your blended juices and smoothies.

Growing Your Own Aloe Vera

Are you convinced you need this plant in your life?! If so, grow it yourself! It’s pretty simple to care for.

Water your aloe vera plant about once a week. If it gets too much water, it can rot, so make sure the soil or pot has good drainage. Fertilize your aloe vera with all-purpose fertilizer once a month.

Aloe vera loves sun! If you need to keep it inside, make sure it’s near a big, sunny window.

Thanks for letting me take some time to share the incredible uses of this amazing plant that’s filled with essential vitamins and nutrients! Its vitamin E content is great for skin elasticity and minimizing wrinkles, while its B12 and folic acid keep your hair strong and healthy. And its anti-inflammatory properties are great for your digestive system! If you’ve enjoyed this blog, you should also go check out my YouTube channel and subscribe there.

Love you!
