Aloe Vera: a virtuous plant that grows on the island!
Aloe vera has been used for 6000 years in dermatology and herbal medicine and we have the chance to find it for free along the roads and paths of our island . The Mayans called it “the fountain of youth”. It is a therapeutic plant that contains 20 minerals, 18 amino acids and 12 vitamins. Aloe offers multiple healing properties. In its green parts we collect the clear pulp whose internal and external benefits are no longer to prove.
Aloe vera relieves skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, boils, insect bites and hematomas. It heals and beautifies the skin and is also healing. It is also known as the best after-sun lotion. Indeed, no cream in the world can compete with aloe to relieve sunburn! In terms of benefits for the body, aloe vera stimulates the immune and digestive functions, it promotes the elimination of toxins, acts as an antibiotic and anti-inflammatory, relieves constipation problems and improves blood clotting. It has no toxicity and can be consumed as a daily juice or be applied directly to the skin to treat wounds and skin infections!
