As time goes by, more and more beauty products use Aloe Vera as an ingredient.
I have been using Aloe Vera for a long time, and I remember from my childhood having Aloe Vera plants all over in the windowsills. As in; having them in ALL the windowsills.
We did not use it often, but sometimes a small “accident” would happen, and we would use this cheap and easy-to-use plant.
We would use it if we got a burn, both sunburns or a cooking burn would suffice, or we would whip it out (sorry-not-sorry) when we got a bug bite.
In the essence, Aloe Vera is anti-inflammatory, soothing, and anti-itch. It is usually used for burns, would healing or frostbite. It can also be used as an antiseptic or a moisturizer.
Because it is a plant, it is a cheap way to have a painkiller at hand, and it can be used by both kids and adults.
