Aloe Vera is a plant that we all know because of the products with Aloe Vera, found in stores, which are labeled as beneficial and healthy.
But did you know that in addition to these healthy effects, Aloe Vera also has a spiritual effect …
The ancient Egyptians called it the plant of immortality. Aloe Vera is said to bring positive energy to a home.
The Aloe Vera plant or miracle plant
Aloe Vera probably originated in the Arabian Peninsula. But you can find it on the Mediterranean Sea, in the Caribbean, the Canary Islands, Indonesia and India.
The plant has a short stem 30-50 cm high, which forms offshoots or branches at the base. The leaves are clustered, blue-green and about 40-50 cm long. On the underside, the leaves are rounded and they have horn-like teeth at the edges.
The plant develops yellow or red flowers that hang together in a cluster. The flowers grow into a box fruit.
The juice of the Aloe Vera is found mainly in cosmetics while the pulp of the leaves is processed in drinks.
The fluid from the leaves is hemostatic and healing and is used for superficial cuts and abrasions, insect bites, rashes and sunburns. Because of this application, the plant is thus called a “miracle plant.
Aloe Vera has been scientifically shown to purify the air and produce oxygen at night, which helps us sleep better and be less moody the next morning.
Aloe Vera as a healthy ingredient
Use Aloe Vera as an ingredient in smoothies or drinks.
First, cut the bottom part of the leaf and let the leaf drain for a day. You will see that a yellow resin liquid oozes out. This liquid is very bitter.
Next, remove the outside of the leaf and mix the translucent gel-like inside into drinks or smoothies.
Add a natural sweetener such as honey to slightly mask the plant’s bitter taste.
In any case, avoid the aloe resin in your drinks because it does not appear to be healthy to consume.
Aloe Vera as an air purifier
A NASA study shows that Aloe Vera has air-purifying properties. The plant is especially talented at absorbing formaldehyde and benzene, substances in some cleaning products, paints, glues and textiles.
The plant also provides a good production of oxygen, which automatically makes us feel invigorated.
