Aloe Vera is a succulent plant that has long been used to treat burns. It is useful for treating digestive complaints, as well as skin conditions. Aloe can be taken internally or used externally.
Aloe was mentioned by Pliny the Elder and also in the New Testament. “And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes,” (John 19:3940). It is long been in use as an herbal medicine in the Orient and Asia.
