You might have often seen a short stemmed succulent plant with thick leaves in the form of a rosette in a pot in your friend’s balcony or you might own one yourself. This plant which has been grown as an ornamental plant in almost every alternate house in the tropical regions has more than just ornamental value attached to it. If you just rip open one of the leaves, you will find a gel like substance that forms the major part of the leaves. This translucent gel attributes to the wide array of benefits that Aloe Vera has on human beings.
The recorded use of Aloe Vera by humans dates back to 16th century BC. It has been mentioned in the Ebers Papyrus (an Egyptian Medical record). In ancient Egypt it was known as the “plant of immortality”. There are even stories that Cleopatra used aloe vera to maintain her youthful appearance. Today it is used as a flavoring agent in foods, in medicines and is also used in cosmetics.
