Aloe Vera - Flora From Eden


Last night I was reminded of two things;
one - hot glue is called hot for a good reason &
two - Aloe Vera is indispensable to have in every home. Obviously they were related thoughts!

I burnt my thumb with hot glue. After cooling it under cold water I broke off a piece of my Aloe Vera plant, sliced it legthwise, wrapped it around the already forming blister and lightly secured the leaf to my finger. I changed the dressing before bed, making a poultice of fresh Aloe Vera Gel, German Chamomile essential oil and High Altitude Lavender Essential oil. Today I do still have a blister, but it doesn't hurt one little bit even.

Ancient Lore says that the Aloe Vera plant grew in the Garden of Eden. I don't doubt it one bit!

I agree !
Aloe is such an important plant to have around.
I keep a dozen or so in my house for little boo-boos and to use in some of my soaps.
I gave one to my daughter for her new home and one for the snack bar where she works too.

It is good stuff !

Organically Yours,
Diana
