Magic of aloe vera

  1. I used fresh aloe vera juice on my heels and scratches. It's magic. They heel within days. Old folks say it works on burns and scalds too.

    ive heard that too and i use products that contain aloe but ive not bought a plant yet.
    i am also a very firm believer in vitamin E for skin.
    i was in traction for two months and started getting bedsores on my back. my mom would rub me down with vitamin e every night. they healed quickly.

    I can't remember ever not having an aloe plant. Using it is just second nature for about everything. Burns, scratches, rashes etc.

    Yep. Great stuff. I have very fair skin. Got an absolute lobster burn in Hawaii years ago. There were aloe plants growing outside our apartment. Put the gel on my back several times a day and it never did blister or peel.

    My mother had radiation treatments for breast cancer. She made her own concoction for treating her affected area with aloe gel and vitamin E. They were quite surprised at the clinic by how beautiful her skin looked--no sign of radiation burn at all. She never did tell them what she was using on it because she was afraid they would tell her it wasn't allowed!

    I received a course of RT 3 years ago for brest cancer. My skin turned from red at the begining of the treatment to dark brown. I used Vit E cream on it. I healed up without a trace of burns. I was not aware of the power of aloe gel then. I should have use it. I recommend aloe to everyone with skin problem, even strangers.
