Item Number: H16ALOVP
Used medicinally for thousands of years, Aloe Vera is often regarded within many cultures as a sacred plant. Indeed, in some it is regarded as a plant that offers protection against evil influence and power. Among Christians it is often revered as well for the fact that it is spoken of as being involved in the preservation of the Body of Jesus Christ when he was taken from the cross. It is believed that this Hebrew practice was learned from the ancient Egyptians, who's priests would use it in medicine, prayer, and embalming practices. Further east, in Paxistan, Aloe Vera is also known as Quargandal and is used within Ayurvedic medicine.
In modern herbal documentation, Aloe is still highly venerated for its ability to treat wounds and burns, and aid the digestive system both as a laxative and a healing aid for the digestive system. In its powder form it is often used within soaps, lotions, gels and other water-based formulas, or otherwise be used as an aid in its traditional methods when mixed with water.
