grown plant in

your home, you are opening yourself to a wealth of medicinal uses.

leaves which can be easily harvested. Simply slice open one of the leaves and scrape or squeeze out 

the gel for any one of the following benefits: 9 Health Benefits Of Applying Aloe Vera Topically

concentration of helpful gel. It's believed the plant we know today as aloe vera first came from 

Northern Africa. The first known documentation of its medicinal use was in the ancient Egyptian 

Papyrus ebers, which provided twelve different recipes for aloe healing. Since then, the succulent 

plant has been used across the globe as both an ornamental plant, and more importantly, as a 

healing medicine. Turn away from pharmaceutical treatment and experience the many benefits of
