Whelp, the weather here at home has been erratic, zone 5A. Planting the garden has been a no go for well over a month late. I can't tell you how bummed I have been. My good friend just a little over an hour from me already had blossoms. I am so jealous Bert!
To tame my itch to get things going, I have finally found some healthy organic Aloe Vera. Aloe Vera is one of the most elite and versatile plants. The medicinal uses alone are astounding. Hair and skin care, internal consumption for intestinal and stomach problems, burn care, air purifying, the list is unending. Every home should have an Aloe Vera plant. This is my journey to grow Aloe Vera health remedies in my home. Start with me, grow with me.
Our intention for our aloe vera is all of the above. My Beautiful has been stalking the plant till I will let her harvest the gel for her face care. I remember burning my hand so badly as a young teen on the stack pipe of an old boat at my Aunt's beach home. The only thing that made the burn bearable was my Aunt's aloe vera plant. She just sliced open an arm and rubbed it on my hand. I don't remember much pain after that.
