Aloe Plant Could Be Good for Your Health
It doesn't take much of a green thumb to succeed in keeping this vegetation alive.
The photo was taken out behind my office and, we also grow the stuff at home.
It's great for treating cuts, bug bites or rashes and, I use it all the time.
Just hack off one of those stalks and, take as much gel from it as you need.
Then, wrap up the leftovers and keep them in the fridge for future use.
It would probably be a good idea to wait and watch somebody else, eat it first.
Depending on the variety of plant, it may have you running to the toilet.
There are probably 500 different types of Aloe plant.
And, not all of them are safe to eat.
Occasionally, somebody comes around, offering aloe sashimi, to me when I'm at the bar.
Not feeling like taking any laxatives, I decline and keep drinking beer.
They have an Aloe and White Grape juice in the Coke machines and, I've tried some.
It's sort of sweet and pulpy but, safe to drink.
For those who have access to Walmart, they have some Aloe products, you can buy.
In all my research, this must be the most comprehensive article on Aloe, I've ever seen.
For some strange reason, number 29, got written twice.
The editor should have caught that but, it gave me two good chuckles.
So, I won't complain.
It was something about minor female problems.
That got me thinking. Maybe, I should rub some of the stuff on my wife.
And, she'd quit spending my money. Hah !
The New Healing Herbs ISBN 0-553-58514-2 is my favorite reference for these plants.
