Aloe Vera, that spiky looking plant many of us have in our kitchen gardens was considered the Plant of Immortality by the Egyptians about 6,000 years ago. Turns out they may have been right. Today the plant is known for many of its healing properties as well as beauty benefits.

During these hot summer days and nights, substitute Aloe Vera for your usual lotions or creams. It absorbs into the skin quickly and is both cooling and moisturizing.

Aloe Vera may help to reduce hair loss. The enzymes in the plant help hair grow quickly and the PH level is balanced as your hair is moisturized.
