External Use:

Apply the gel from the leaf immediately for burns and scalds, insect bites, nettle stings, chili burns, pain in general and for quick healing. A fresh leaf can be cut open with a knife and the gel applied to the skin. When wiping the aloe leaf directly on the skin, all the sap can appear to have been used up, but if you take a knife and score the inside surface of the leaf with a few cuts, more juice will be released.

Internal Use:

If you wish to use Aloe Vera as a tonic, it can be taken regularly. Cut one or two large leaves from the base of the plant, and allow to stand half an hour to allow the sap to drain. To make an infusion from the leaves, cut them into two centimeter chunks and place the pieces into half liter sized containers and fill them about one third. Top up the containers with cold water and place them in your refrigerator. Leave for eight hours. Pour half into one glass and drink first thing in the morning and also the same before each meal. After draining the infusion refill the jar with water. By having several jars you will be able to maintain a constant process of filling and refilling.

Aloe Vera – certainly an amazing plant with an amazing healing power – both internally and externally.

    within 1 day of using aloe vera gel on my dermatitis I saw a difference in my hands and it removed the itchiness. Thanks Shelley for the advice.

    We have an aloe vera plant just outside our back door. I often use a leaf on cuts, bruises and burns.

    It seems heals much more quickly and it relieves any pain.
