Aloe Vera

One of the oldest documented species of plants, with references to it in the Bible, the Aloe Vera plant is believed to have originated in Africa.

This plant is a multi-purpose medicinal herb used in many households around the world.  It is believed to have many medicinal properties, ranging from the soothing of burns, the promotion of healing and the treatment of diabetes.

The stalk of the plant contains several medicinal compounds, including acetylated mannans, polymannans, anthraquinone C-glycosides, anthrones and anthraquinones and lectins.


Cultivation

The 
Aloe Vera is a succulent, which thrives in zones 8-10. It is suitable as an ornamental plant for low-water gardens, as well as indoors.  

When potting, be sure the pot has
good drainage, as too much sitting water will cause root rot.

While hardy, the Aloe vera plant has little tolerance for cold.
