Thanks for the info. I do agree that Aloe vera is such a versatile plant. we always have them in our garden. We use that for burns from oil splashing when cooking or insect bites. Cost nothing and it's all natural. Drinking Aloe vera could be a bit expensive until I find a way to make that at home.
