🛑Attention! Internal use should be avoided during pregnancy and breastfeeding as the plant has a strong laxative effect. Aloe should not be used internally for a long period of time. In addition to the possibility of the urine becoming discolored, there is a loss of potassium, which in turn can result in intestinal obstruction.


When stored properly (around 15 degrees Celsius or lower), cut aloe leaves will stay fresh for several weeks. Take 1 to 2 teaspoons of gel or juice from part of the leaf. The cut surface closes itself. Since aloe vera increases bone marrow activity and stimulates the formation of healthy new blood cells, a repair effect in the event of radioactive exposure can be assumed.


Aloe Vera

For water purification: The gelatinous interior of some aloe leaves is added to the tap water that you want to purify. The pollutants settle and you can drink the water. Store in the refrigerator.


In the Orient, aloe is a remedy against witchcraft and sorcery.


Full sun is particularly fatal for young plants; they need partial shade. Always pay attention to sun protection. Aloe vera also does not tolerate frost and therefore has to go into winter quarters in autumn.



3 to 5 years should have passed before harvesting. The leaf should then be at least 30 cm long, otherwise please do not harvest.


It's always worth getting aloe juice yourself, as it goes great in homemade hair care products, skin creams or in the bathroom. Aloe Vera has over 100 moisturizing ingredients and is a balm for damaged skin and dry hair. In addition, the juice is a classic dietary supplement if the vitamin level and the supply of essential nutrients is too low.


An aloe treatment is also possible, especially if there are too few antibodies in the body and you repeatedly suffer from infections. The metabolism is stimulated and activates the body's own killer cells. This means strengthening and protecting the cell nucleus.
