If you love plants, you should have an aloe vera plant in your home. This will surprise many people, but this plant is relatively inexpensive. It will become a decoration of your interior and at the same time it will be a miracle for your health. It is not for nothing that this plant is called “miraculous”, as it can be used in many ways.
Get rid of dandruff
A home-made aloe vera hair mask will help you with dandruff. Cut a long aloe stem in half lengthwise and use a spoon to remove the gel from the plant. Put this gel in a bowl and add about two tablespoons of conditioner, one tablespoon of olive oil and one tablespoon of coconut oil. Mix the ingredients and spread the paste on your scalp. Leave it on for a while and then wash your hair. After a few uses, the dandruff will disappear.
Aloe vera contains many minerals and has antibacterial properties. Thanks to this, the gel from the plant’s hairs will help you get rid of pimples. You can easily make your own face mask. Put two tablespoons of aloe vera gel in a bowl and add two tablespoons of almond milk and two tablespoons of lemon juice. Stir and your face mask is ready. Gently massage it into the skin and rinse off with lukewarm water after a few minutes.
Use it to treat wounds
Aloe vera is known to heal wounds and scars faster. Scientific research claims that small wounds heal much faster thanks to the juice of the aloe vera plant. In fact, the gel is capable of killing bacteria, plus it promotes the growth of new skin cells. Therefore, apply the gel as often as possible, it will be more effective than some expensive ointments.
Don’t forget to exfoliate
Every woman who is at least a little interested in cosmetics knows the magic of exfoliation. It literally makes the skin glow and gets rid of internal impurities. You can make your own facial scrub using aloe vera extract. Mix it with a little baking soda and you’re done! Avoid contact with your eyes when applying the scrub, so apply it a little further away from your eyes and avoid using it on your eyelids.
Prepare your mouthwash
It turns out that you can even use aloe vera as a mouthwash. The plant contains a large dose of vitamin C, which prevents plaque formation. Aloe vera can also provide relief if you suffer from swollen gums. So don’t hesitate, and go boldly into production!
