The one plant that is most used in beauty products, that has incredible healing properties, is the cactus-like aloe vera plant. It contains anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties that help in treating everything from burns to constipation. 

Aloe Vera is a million dollar industry making it a supremely important and essential part of industries like the beauty and health. The gooey and translucent gel which is extremely bitter has numerous healing properties and amino acids. 

Some of the mind-blowing benefits of the plant include:

Skin treatment


The plant can treat, exfoliate, restore and revive the skin. The slimy texture of the plant soothes and cools the skin, leaving it soft, supple and feeling like a baby's butt! This is exactly why it is so in-demand in the field of Ayurveda. It can be used to treat cuts, burns and wounds easily. 

Good for acne
We already know how good the plant is for your skin. Whip it up with some blended walnuts and honey and apply it on your skin. Leave it on your skin overnight and then wash it off once you wake up. Practice this consistently for clear and acne free skin. 

Weight loss
Improve the effectiveness of your diet and maximise the amount of weight you lose by consuming aloe vera in juice form. The green juice is sure to increase your immunity and help lose weight. Whip up an aloe vera leaf with a mix of fruits like grapes, oranges and apples, and drink the fresh juice, first thing in the morning.

Improves hair


The plant consists of enzymes that help repair dead skin cells on the scalp. Applying it on your hair in regular intervals boosts hair growth and prevents itchiness and dandruff. It also makes your hair smoother and silkier in texture and prevents breakage. 

Improves digestion
The plant has laxative properties that treat digestive problems like constipation. So, if you are feeling uneasy just whip up some aloe juice!

Lowers blood sugar
According to studies, consuming one or two spoons of aloe juice every day can help lower the blood sugar levels in people who have diabetes. It also protects them from the probable factor of heart disease. 

Makes gums healthier 


Using aloe vera as a mouthwash helps reduce plaque in the mouth and keeps it feeling healthy, fresh and clean. 

Clearly, the benefits of the plant are multi-fold. It can be grown at home or can be store bought as well. But the more natural, the better!
