Nothing beats fresh Aloe Vera! Especially if you are lucky enough to have it growing in your garden. I have fond memories of travelling in Australia and grabbing Aloe Vera straight from the garden to soothe sun burn, BLISS! Aloe Vera is so versatile, so we have put this blog together to give you an idea of how to use this power plant to your advantage! Enjoy

SUPERFOOD ME - EAT YOUR ALOE VERA TO STAY YOUNG

Yes Aloe Vera is actually edible! and its an amazing superfood too! Aloe Vera is jam packed with antioxidants and micronutrients. The power plant has proven to slow the ageing process too! Yes an anti ageing cure! Studies have shown that eating Aloe Vera daily can improve skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles and boost collagen production.

DRINK UP - CURE YOUR DIGESTIVE PROBLEMS

Daily consumption of Aloe Vera is known to help cure a range of digestive disorders from constipation to heartburn. Drinking daily can also boost your metabolism to prevent weight gain. We highly recommend drinking your Aloe Vera in the morning to flush toxins from the body. Add two tablespoons a day to your water or juice for the best results. If you cannot get fresh aloe vera why not try a Barakat Aloe Vera Juice , available at most Spinneys.

HAIR HEALER - REDUCE HAIR LOSS

The heat of the desert can cause us to loose extra hair ( What a pain to hoover up daily ). This is too do with the harsh climate, but fear not our Aloe Vera trick can help restore your hairs growth. Try this simple recipe to reduce hair fall. Blend one egg and two table spoons of olive oil to clear aloe vera gel. Massage the mixture in to your hair and leave for 10 minutes with a hot towel over your hair. Rinse and wash as usual ( preferably with a non chemical shampoo , such as Rahua )

SUITABLE FOR ALL THE FAMILY - EVEN BABIES

Aloe Vera Gel is suitable to use on babies, it can soothe eczema, help reduce redness from teething cheeks and can be a natural treatment for pesky insect bites. If you prefer to use a recommended branded baby range that contains Aloe Vera visit our Fifi & Friends Blog. Their kind baby care uses Organic Aloe Vera.
