Aloe vera is an amazing all purpose plant. It can heal wounds, bruises, sun burns, mosquito bites and many other skin conditions. I use it all the time at home.
To use the fresh aloe vera gel, you need to cut a leaf, open it and squeeze the juice. It can do wonders.
This year, my aloe vera plant finally flourished with nice red orange flowers that looks like flame.
Apparently aloe vera flowers bloom only when the plant reach maturity, get a lot of sun and love :).
Have a blossom day
