Aloe Vera  is a cactus plant that belongs to the Liliaceae family. It grows in dry climates such as those found in parts of Africa and India and has been used medicinally for centuries. 

Various studies have been conducted to examine the benefits of the aloe Vera plant and it was found out that aloe Vera does in fact have several properties that are effective in treating a variety of skin conditions, from flaky or dry skin, cosmetic ailments, hair and scalp problems to many more. 

It is also said to be useful in treating wounds and burns, minor skin infections, cysts, diabetes, and elevated blood lipids in humans, and shows some promise in treating more serious and persistent conditions such as eczema, genital herpes, dandruff, psoriasis, canker sores, skin ulcers and others. 

1. It treats sunburn. 
Aloe Vera helps with sunburn through its powerful healing activity at the epithelial level of the skin, a layer of cells that cover the body. It acts as a protective layer on the skin and helps replenish its moisture. Because of its nutritional qualities and antioxidant properties, the skin heals quicker.
2. It acts as a moisturiser. 
Aloe moisturises the skin without giving it a greasy feel, so it`s perfect for anyone with an oily skin complexion. For women who use mineral-based make-up, aloe Vera acts as a moisturiser and is great for the face prior to the application to prevents skin drying. For men: Aloe Vera gel can be used as an aftershave treatment as its healing properties can treat small cuts caused by shaving.
3. It treats acne. 
Aloe Vera gel contains two hormones: Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation. Giberellin in aloe Vera acts as a growth hormone stimulating the growth of new cells. It allows the skin to heal quickly and naturally with minimal scarring.Aloe is soothing and can reduce skin inflammations, blistering and itchiness, while helping the skin to heal more rapidly,also aloe is used to effectively heal chronic skin problems, such as psoriasis, acne and eczema.
4. It fights ageing. 
As we age, everyone begins to worry about the appearance of fine lines and the loss of elasticity in their skin. Aloe leaves contain a plethora of antioxidants including, beta carotene, vitamin C and E that can help improve the skin's natural firmness and keep the skin hydrated.
5. It lessens the visibility of stretch marks. 
The skin is like one big piece of elastic that’ll expand and contract as needed to accommodate growth. But if the skin stretches too far, too fast (due to pregnancy, rapid weight gain or loss) the elasticity of the skin can be damaged. That’s what leaves those unsightly stretch marks. These marks appear due to minor tears in the layers of the skin caused by sudden and excessive stretching. Aloe Vera gel can help hide these stretch marks by healing these wounds. 
6. It's nutrient rich for good health. 
This solid material contains over 75 different nutrients including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, sugars, anthraquinones or phenolic compounds, lignin, saponins, sterols, amino acids and salicylic acid.  
7. It soothes in periodontal disease. 
It's extremely helpful in the treatment of gum diseases like gingivitis, periodontitis. It reduces bleeding, inflammation and swelling of the gums. It is a powerful antiseptic in pockets where normal cleaning is difficult, and its anti fungal properties help greatly in the problem of denture stomatitis, apthous ulcers, cracked and split corners of the mouth. 
8. It aids in digestion. 
The internal benefits of aloe Vera are supposed to be just as amazing. The plant is said to improve the digestion and to relieve ulcers. Some people consider it a laxative, while others attribute that effect to its digestive qualities (which normalise the system and induce regularity).

The Wonder Of Aloe Vera 

Aloe Vera is a product that can have a dramatic effect on your health and wellness. As we move through modern times with all of the different drugs that are affecting our health both positively and negatively, we need to pay more attention to what nature has provided us in the way of natural remedies for healing.

Plants Are The Answer For Our Health
For our ancestors, effectiveness determined aloe vera’s use. Today, science is validating its healing properties. The Aloe plant is, incredibly, 99% to 99.5% water! All the power of the plant is in that tiny one to one-half percent! I think that’s amazing! If you think about our body and cells relative to size and percentage, it takes 10,000 of our cells to fit on the head of a pin, and each cell is composed of trillions of molecules! Water acts as a carrier for those potent nutrients. The solid material of the aloe plant contains over 75 different ingredients, all important in holistic healing including:
• Minerals;
• Enzymes;
• Amino acids;
• Anthraquinones;
• Sterols;
• Lignins;
• Saponins;
• Salicylic acid;
• Biological sugars.
That’s a LOT packed into such a small percentage! Aloe vera contains most of the major vitamins, except vitamin D, but it does include all of the important antioxidant vitamins A, C, and beta-carotene (Vitamin A). The B vitamins, thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, choline and folic acid are also present.

Forever Living Ever Shield Deodorant Stick

When the temperature is rising and the pressure is on, keeping that fresh feeling from the start of the day is a real confidence booster. Aloe Ever-Shield Deodorant Stick provides effective, all-day protection against underarm odour, and can be applied directly after shaving or waxing without stinging. Forever have formulated a product that maximises the deodorant properties of aloe vera without adding harmful ingredients.
This gentle formula with stabilised aloe vera gel contains no harsh or harmful anti-perspirant aluminium salts that are found in so many other deodorants on the market. Aluminium is a toxic metal: the major effects of having too much aluminium in the body seem to be on the central nervous system. It can also disrupt the calcium status of the body, due to its influence of parathyroid gland activity – too much parathyroid hormone can lead to high blood calcium. We’re proud to bring you a product that has eliminated these dangers, without compromising on quality.
The convenient stick form allows you to apply Aloe Ever-Shield just where it is needed. The special formulation glides on smoothly and does not stain clothes, even after prolonged use.
The benefits of the Aloe Ever-Shield Deodorant Stick:
  • No aluminium salts
  • Will not stain clothes
  • Can be used directly after underarm shaving and waxing
  • Convenient stick form minimises wastage
  • Long-lasting
Another fab use i have found is using the stick for protecting against Mosquitoes . Living in Corfu we have a lots of mosquitoes and by rubbing this on your upper and lower body it stopped me getting bit last year and will use again this year .

you can get yours here
