The benefits of aloe vera are incredible. I found my hands to be dry, itchy and sensitive to the touch due to the brutal climate changes and rubbed some of this plant's silky product into my skin. The coolness of the aloe was soothing to my hands and helped with healing after a few applications. I recommend growing your own aloe plant at home. The plant does not require much maintenance and its many uses are a miracle!
Here are a few simple steps:
1. Go to your local flower, gardening or plant store and buy some aloe vera seeds, fertilizer, soil, pots and gardening gloves.
2. Keep your plant by a window or outdoors and water it daily without over doing.
3. If you notice the plant is changing colors then move the plant away from sunlight until it starts to become its usual green again.
4. The plant could take weeks or some months before it is ready to be cut and used. Be patient! It is all worth the wait.
