Aloe Vera For Wounds & Burns With No Scarring: DIY Alkaline Juice, Hair Rinse & More
Adding Aloe Vera to juices, soap, lotion, shampoo and other personal care items catches buyers’ attention. Aloe is easily associated with smoothness, freshness, healing, hair growth and beauty care. And if you look into your garden, you may be surprised to have it and just not know the use for it!
Aloe Vera or Sabila can grow very big if grown on the ground but smaller if contained in a pot. It turns brown under strong sun exposure because it needs to be watered when it’s partly dry. (Check out Different Herbal and Herbs, Different Needs for the water and sunning needs of different plants) It also needs compost or organic fertilizer monthly.
Aloe Vera is a good source of alkaline to neutralize our food acidic intakes. The whole leaf can be crushed and taken as syrup. Including the skin is very good for the body but it is also very bitter. A more enjoyable mixture is just taking out the gel inside and mixing it with honey. You can take it as syrup or mix with juice or tea.
It is also well-noted for healing burns, wounds and sunburn as it has natural tincture of Biodine. Hot oil fell on my foot once while I was cooking. As first aid, I immediately squeezed Aloe Vera juice on it. When my burn healed, no scar was left on my foot.
The green peeling of the leaf is also useful as a laxative. In fact, this product is commercially sold especially for the elderly. You can make it yourself at home by boiling the green peeling in water and by taking one (1) cup of the concoction twice (2) a day.
For beauty, it can be used as styling hair gel. I make my aloe conditioner and as last rinse for manageable hair and whole body as well. It feels cool and refreshing!
