Aloe Vera

Aloe vera plants (Aloe barbadensis var. Miller) are beautiful, easy-to-care-for succulents. Plant lovers can use aloe vera plants as indoor decorations in rooms that receive bright, indirect sunlight, and take advantage of their juice as a topical remedy for minor burns and cuts. Aloe vera plants are also known to:

  • Produce a pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory gel that can help heal burns, abrasions, and other minor injuries
  • Generate offsets, or “pups,” for additional plants
  • Tolerate absent-minded owners who may forget to water regularly
