Aloe Vera Uses !

Aloe Vera is a seriously magical plant. If there is one thing that is great for the skin it is aloe vera. I was so surprise of the results one night when I applied an all natural, fresh aloe vera mask that I made to my neck. On my neck I had these stubborn eczema patches, I applied the mask to the effected spots and let it dry. Once I rinsed it off, the eczema patches were soothed and non-itchy. The next week the eczema patches were calm, the redness went down and the effected skin healed from dryness. Of course, with any natural treatment you have to be consistent but I think it’s totally worth it.

Like you may know, aloe vera is great for sunburns as well. But even if you don’t have a sunburn.. after a long day in the sun, it is great just to rub some aloe vera on the skin. I personally love using aloe vera ice cubes after a long hot day at the beach.. AHHH! Using fresh aloe vera straight from the plant is so good because it does not have any other chemicals or ingredients added.

See how to make them in the video down below!

DIY Aloe Vera Scalp Treatment

Aloe Vera is anti-septic, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial. Which means it works well for soothing the skin on the scalp from itchiness, dryness and flakiness.

Benefits of using aloe vera on scalp and hair:

  • soothes skin
  • cleans hair pores
  • prevents hair loss
  • refreshes scalp

I used avocado oil for my scalp treatment. But you can leave the aloe vera plain or add any natural oil you like. If you want a really refreshing treatment to the scalp, try adding a few drops of tea tree oil!
