About Aloe Vera: Aloe Vera, or Aloe barbadensis miller , is a succulent with thick, juicy leaves lined with small teeth. Aloe Vera plants have been used in traditional medicines for thousands of years but also make a great indoor plant. These plants are easy to grow and fairly hardy, making them a good choice for those who don’t possess a green thumb. Aloe Vera is also perfect to keep around the house to help treat rashes and minor sunburns.

Likes: Aloe Vera loves bright and indirect sunlight. South or west facing windows are a good choice for these plants. Much like succulents, Aloe Vera do their best in dry conditions and will do well when planted in cactus potting soil mix or regular potting soil mixed together with perlite or building sand.

Dislikes: Like many succulents, overwatering is Aloe Vera’s greatest enemy. Make sure to plant your Aloe in a planter with proper drainage and make sure that it is never left in standing water. You should only be watering once every three weeks or until the soil is completely dry.

Health benefits: Aloe Vera is an effective air filtering plant and the jelly-like interior portion of the stems can be applied to skin irritations. If harvesting Aloe Vera gel from your plant, take great care to avoid the lining of the “skin” of your Aloe Vera, as it can cause skin irritation. Always apply to a small area of skin first and wait at least 30 minutes before applying further.

Looking after the plant: Place your Aloe Vera in an area where it can get bright indirect sunlight for at least 4 to 6 hours a day. Water your Aloe Vera only once the soil has gone completely dry, which may be even less frequent during the winter months.

Plant care with pets and children: Aloe Vera is mildly toxic to pets and children and may cause vomiting or diarrhea when ingested. The jelly found in Aloe Vera can be applied topically to skin irritations but we recommend buying commercial Aloe Vera skin products as the lining of the interior called “aloin” can cause irritation and digestive issues. Always apply to a small area of skin first and wait at least 30 minutes before applying further.
