Ways to Try Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera can be taken in many ways. I recommend straight from the plant, of course. You can smear the gel on your skin where needed, or eat it, or put it in your juicer and drink it. There are companies that extract the healing ingredients and put them into capsules which can be taken internally, or also into gels and juices, and creams to apply as needed. I have a reputation for being very frugal and also resourceful, so the natural means appeal most to me. Let's look the benefits of aloe vera and ways to use it in more detail now.
On your skin
Keep a plant handy, so you can break off small pieces, and smear the gel on your skin for things like sunburns, itchy spots, insect bites, open wounds and fungal infections. Yes, like athletes' foot. There is an oxidation factor in the gel which stimulates cell regeneration and healing, so don't hesitate to take it internally too. Such as in your mouth for cold sores or tonsillitis.
Got freckles or blotchy spots on your skin? Try aloe vera. Many have found that it clears up pigmentation problems.
Definitions of Medicinal Benefits of Herbs
When reading up on herbs, we need to know the definitions of medicinal benefits of herbs. We may have no clue what those big words mean. I have found a handy reference section in Jethro Kloss' book, Back to Eden. It seems wise to share it here with you. I'm taking the liberty to add other definitions as I come across them.
Note: I'll give you just the A section of my Definitions list on my website. Go see the rest of that list, and you'll probably want to bookmark that page, so you can check back as a reference guide. Definitions of Medicinal Benefits of Herbs

P.S. I'm going to alternate aloe vera articles with herbal ones when I have longer articles. However, today I can give you small bites of 2 larger articles.
