Aloe Vera - Aloe barbadensis in 4" Terra Cotta pot
It’s said that Cleopatra claimed Aloe Vera as one of her greatest beauty secrets. Who am I to argue with Cleopatra? Aloe barbadensis is still chosen by leading cosmetic companies for suntan lotions, hand and face creams, as well as shampoos. Beauty isn’t the only valuable gift aloe brings; it’s also known for its remarkable healing properties. Aloe Vera heals and moisturizes skin tissue to the point of even being used to treat radiation burns. Gardeners will often grow them here and there in their gardens so they can use them for cuts, scrapes, burns, or chapped hands at a moment’s notice.
