Overview

The Aloe has been used medicinally for over 5,000 years and is known as the "miracle plant", the "medicine plant", and "the wand of heaven." It is thought that the leaves of a plant on the painted sarcophagus of Tutankhamun is probably an Aloe. Aloe Vera, or True Aloe, was named to differentiate it from other members of the botanical family and to identify it as the "healing Aloe." A natural detoxifier, it also boosts the immune system, partly by increasing beneficial intestinal flora. It soothes and repairs damaged and inflamed tissue internally and externally and is therefore often seen as a "cure-all" because its uses are so wide-ranging.
