Aloe Vera

Aloe vera


Aloe vera is a plant with succulent leaves that form a rosette. They feature sharp, pinkish spines around their borders and are the supplier of the colorless gel used in many industrial and pharmaceutical items. It is a stemless or very short-stemmed plant that grows to a height of 60–100 cm (24–39 inches) and spreads through offsets. The leaves are thick and meaty, green to grey-green, with white specks on the top and lower stem surfaces of some types.


Irrespective of the environment we live in, this plant is positioned outside in dry conditions outside the house. All they require is an abundance of sunlight, a warm environment, and water to thrive.


Aloe vera gel includes potent antioxidants that are part of a wide family of compounds called polyphenols. These polyphenols, including a number of other substances found in aloe vera, assist to limit the bacterial growth that may trigger symptoms in humans. It is widely used as a beauty product and health aspect.
