WHY ALOE VERA GEL IS PERHAPS BEST KNOWN FOR ITS ABILITY TO HELP TREAT BURNS?
As I started to research why Aloe Vera is called “The Burn Plant” I came across this great written excerpt of a woman who experienced a horrible burn to her hand. Here is her documented use of Aloe Vera, and how she used it to help heal her wound. Aloe Vera the Burn Plant (aloe-vera-and-handy-herbs.com) I hope you enjoyed learning about her success with Aloe Vera and could visually see what I am talking about in this blog post.
Several researchers have spoken that Aloe Vera is a very effective treatment for first degree and second degree burns in animals and people. Early treatment often results in the best outcome. It has been reported that Aloe Vera decreases the inflammation, promotes circulation, relieves the pain of burns, penetrates deeply to stimulate cell growth and kills bacteria and fungi. We suggest Aloe Vera being used topically and ingested internally for the best results.
From nourishing your hair and skin to healing multiple infections, the benefits of Aloe Vera are endless. It is an effective remedy for sun burned skin. Aloe vera with its soothing properties is the ultimate choice for those looking for how to soothe their skin burn and irritations.
HOW ALOE VERA USED THROUGH OUT HISTORY FOR BURNS
In history we can read of how this plant has been used for the treatment of burns for thousands of years. Maybe that is where it gets its other name, “The Burn Plant.” I have read that Alexander the Great (356-323 B.C.) took the advice of Aristotle to go and conquer Socotra Island, which is located off the coast of Somalia.
He apparently suggested this so that Alexander would have control over the great fields of Aloe Vera and then the harvested Aloe Vera was sent to battlefield for the treatment of soldiers' burns and wounds. Some people believe that the great military success of Alexander had something to do with his use of Aloe Vera to heal and reduce the losses of his soldiers after battles.
