Natural Aloe Vera has long been used as a topical treatment for minor burns, skin injuries, and rashes. But did you know that it has also been used to treat internal ailments and disease? I didn’t know that Aloe had any health benefits; I was under the misguided assumption that ingesting Aloe would be toxic to my health.

Aloe vera is a handy home-grown remedy that can be used as a moisturizing agent and for the treatment of minor burns, skin abrasions, and irritations. It has been suggested that external application of aloe vera gel promotes wound healing.
