Growing an Aloë Vera at home can give you so many benefits at the same time. As we all know, Aloë Vera’s are very pretty and can be used as a great decoration piece. The beauty of this plant is a true eyecatcher, especially when you put it in your living room for everyone to see. It is not only very pretty, Aloë Vera can be very healing as well. This plant has so many hidden powers and can heal a lot of aspects of the human body. Pretty and medicinal, seems like a perfect match made in heaven!
This spikey green plant is known for its common herbal remedy and healing purposes. The plant is a member of a family with over 400 different species. Aloë Vera is often used for skin conditions such as sunburns or eczema. It cools down the skin immediately and reduces the redness and burning feeling. Nevertheless, the Aloë Vera gel can also be used as a hair conditioner, moisturizer and even a facial mask. The gel smoothes the skin by hydrating it in the most natural way.
You can also use it as a volumizing product to your hair! Just apply it to you hair before you blow dry it and the result is just unbelievable.
If you are not interested in cosmetic possibilities, you can also add Aloë Vera in to one of your favorite dishes. On the internet you can find plenty delicious recipes based on this particular plant, which are also very easy to prepare. I often use Aloë Vera in some of my signature smoothies, which are really healthy and good for the body. I try to do this every week with Aloë Vera in order to take care of myself. I have to say, i’m not really fond of the taste, so I often mix it with fruit to give it a sweet taste. There are also plenty Aloë Vera drinks available at the supermarket and the taste is actually quite nice.
Growing your own Aloë Vera is very easy, even for people who are having a hard time taking care of plants. When you are not located on a tropical environment, you should consider to plant an Aloë Vera indoors. You can buy an Aloë Vera plant at a greenstore, located almost everywhere. This plant is very easy to take care of, especially because it doesn’t need to much sunlight and water. So it isn’t a great idea to put your Aloë Vera at the window. Be gentle with giving water, because the plant can live without any water for days.
Indoor gardening can be really fun and within just weeks you will have your own plant collection. I really like tropical plants such as the Aloë Vera and love to combine them together with some of my cactuses. It really gives your living room a complete new look, like you are on a tropical island! Just by changing the positions of the plants you can create different styles and I just love to switch it every month or so. This is really one of my favorite things to do, besides online gokken and watching movies of-course, these things also really relax my mind.
