Aloe is native to tropical southern Africa, Madagascar, Jordan, the Arabian Peninsula also in the island of the Indian Ocean. Some of the species of Aloe grew naturally in other regions of the world, such as India, Australia, North and South America, Hawaii, etc. There are over 500 species of Aloes in the world.
The majority of the Aloe grow flowers during winter but very few of them grew flowers during summer (Such as grass aloe). The way to plant your Aloe is to keep them in a place where is sunlight available indirectly and well-drained dirt. People usually need to water them every two weeks to keep them healthy.
Now here comes the fun part, how do we apply Aloe in our daliy lives? We usually use Aloe as a clear gel for sunburn, hair conditioner, makeup remover, brow gel, or even traditional medicine, etc. Aloe can also benefit us by eating them, such as reducing blood sugar levels, raises blood antioxidant levels, helpful in easing constipation, etc. But keep in mind, eating over an amount of Aloe could cause some negative effects. The best suggestion is to ask a doctor before you take aloe in order to benefit yourself.
