The Elegant Aloe Vera Plant

The elegant aloe vera plant is perfect for household beauty and medical use. Cut off a leaf and squeeze some aloe juice onto a burn, blemish, wound or sunburn. Keep it in the refrigerator in a plastic bag, for later re-application. An aloe plant will grow strong and have an elegant shape. Aloe vera plants make perfect hostess-gifts, and an aloe plant already set in an elegant piece of crockery is a welcome gift for almost anyone. Water-efficient aloes would be perfect dorm-room plants as well, since they can suffer neglect with great dignity, and may come in very handy for youthful skin maladies and emergency wound-care.
