Aloe vera: A guest post by Sarita Remedios

Does the name lily of the dessert ring a bell? Maybe not, but I’m sure if I used its more common name ‘Aloe Vera’ it would need no introduction. In Thailand it is fondly referred to as Crocodile’s tail because of the leaf colour and shape which is thick, fleshy and green with serrated edges.

There are more than 300 species of Aloe Vera all over the world. It has been grown for ornamental purpose but more for its extensive medicinal properties. It’s a complete first aid kit - by cutting the leaf and removing the gel from inside it can be used internally & externally. This gel consists of more than 75 different key nutritional compounds which are either required or beneficial.

Some of the internal Benefits:
1)Helps blood circulation
2)Lowers blood sugar
3)Assists kidney, liver and gall bladder function
4)Helps cleanse the digestive tract
5)Strengths immunity
6)Helps viral infections
Some of the external benefits:
1)Relieves symptoms of fungal and bacterial infection
2)Its anti-inflammatory properties help decreases swelling, redness and pain
4)Rashes and boils
6)Cuts and burns
8)Varicose veins
9)Used as an aftershave

10)Remove stretch marks
Even Cleopatra used to this gel to keep her skin looking young and soft!! Legend has it that Aloe Vera grown in the kitchen can help guard against evil, prevent household accidents and I could sure as hell do with this last one – keep those burns and mishap away when cooking !

How do I grow Aloe Vera?
It grows best in tropical or sub tropical regions. Your plant will love warm weather conditions so let it get enough sunlight. Remember that Aloe Vera is a succulent plant and consists of more that 95% of water. Yet make sure you don’t forget to water it but never over water otherwise it can easily rot. Use moderately fertile and fast draining soil. The roots of the Aloe Vera are shallow and spreading so it’s good to use a wide planter with adequate draining.

  10. I think what you said was actually very logical.

    But, think on this, suppose you added a little information?
    I ain't suggesting your information isn't solid.
    , however what if you added something to possibly grab a
    person's attention? I mean "Aloe vera: A guest post by Sarita Remedios" is kinda plain. You should peek at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create article titles to
    grab people to open the links. You might
    add a related video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about what you've written. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.
