Let's get to know the Aloe Vera plant with its many features.
What is Aloe Vera?
Aloe Vera is the name of the variety of Aloe plant, which has more than 400 species, used for medicinal purposes. It is also the oldest known and most widely used medicinal plant in the world. Although its natural habitat is North Africa, India and the southern Mediterranean, it is possible to grow it in almost every country, at home, on your balcony.
You can grow Aloe Vera in a pot and use it as well as commercially available gels. But you should be careful that the amount of Aloe Vera it contains is at least 95%. If you want to take advantage of the plant you have grown in the pot, cut a fresh leaf every time. Although it is possible to store the gel in the refrigerator, it is known to be more effective while fresh.
