    Hi Brigitte,

    We hear so many times about aloe vera but really, how many things do we really know about it? The tip about putting some aloe vera on kids’ fingertips so as to stop biting their nails is fantastic! One of my nieces is very sensitive to her surroundings and gets stressed easily, so biting her nails is the first thing she does. Thank you for the amazing tips!

    When I was a kid in Hawaii, my mom always kept an aloe plant in the kitchen. When you burned yourself, you would just break off a point and rub it on the burn. Worked so well!

    I’ve never been tempted to try one of these aloe drinks ’cause I remember the sap as being very, very bitter.

    We had an aloe plant in our backyard and it was great for sunburns! My mom used to rub the sticky inside of the leaf on the burn and it took the sting away instantly.
