DescriptionAn incredibly versatile plant, aloe vera has documented medical uses dating back to the ancient greek, Roman and Egyptian cultures. Aloe vera gel is widely used as an ingredient in many lotions, yogurts, as well as beverages and is believed by many to be rejuvenating and revitalizing. Aloe vera does not preserve particularly well and its gel is most effective when used straight from the plant. While it is easy enough to grow in your own home it is frost intolerant and requires a steady dose of sunlight and water.
