The Useful Aloe Vera

I bought our Aloe Vera plant five years ago at a Sunday market. It was just a pot with one or two offsets. I have remove the offsets to other pots then and the rest is history. It has now grown in numbers.

Aloe is so easy to grow. It just have to be watered daily during summer and it must have a good drainage. Aloe is sunlight loving too. Just that, not much necessary caring needed.

This plant has many uses. It can be used to moisturize the scalp which they say can make the thinning hair regrow or thicker. My husband will kill me for mentioning this but this plant is most useful to him. His scalp loves Aloe Vera so much and he himself often says it's effective. And since it has become so abundant in my garden I also found ways to use it. I now moisturize my elbows, knees and heels with Aloe every other day. During weekends I apply it also on my face before taking a bath.
Sorry for having too much weeds. I'm still on the process of beautifying my garden.

The fact that Aloe Vera absorbs formaldehyde and benzene plus the carbon dioxide into the air and in reverse releases oxygen. I can safely say... some plants are worth growing in our gardens.
