For the longest time, these aloe vera plants never revealed the beauty that lay deep within their DNA.
And then they burst forth with vibrant reddish-orange spikes tipped with yellow.
They must be filled with nectar because the hummingbirds linger.
Not only is aloe beneficial for a variety of skin and digestive ailments — we all know that aloe relieves the pain of a burn, but did you know Cleopatra used it as part of her beauty routine?
Maybe she used this sugar scrub: Mix together two tbsp. of aloe vera, 2 tbsp. of brown sugar and 1 tsp. of lemon juice.
Mother Nature is so AMAZING.
