First tip - plant your aloe in a large pot, and within a year or so you will have MANY aloe plants. They are SO useful for a diabetic! Any sore, scrape, ding, scratch, or burn you may have, you can heal with aloe vera. Break off a part of the stem and squeeze, then apply juice/gel to the injury. My tip is when your plant/s get big, you can harvest the gel inside the plant by scraping it with a spoon out of the green outside of the leaf: put this into a blender and make juice out of it, bottle it, and refrigerate or freeze for a longer period of time. This can be taken almost anywhere and used just as widely. It will heal sores inside your nose, ears, mouth, and almost any other place on your body except the eye balls. You can also drink this juice. It will heal up esophageal irritation, stomach sores, even irritations in the colon. Caution, though - it will give you diarrhea if you drink much at one time! This too, is a tip for those who have constipation. Drink Aloe juice. Aloe juice is a wonderful moisturizer. Apply it first, then a cream or lotion on top to keep the moisture in. Olive oil goes well on top of aloe, and is also a great moisturizer, though rather, well - oily. Go lightly! When in juice form, you can put into a spray bottle and spritz your face and neck in summer - it is very cooling and healing as well. Keep spray bottle in fridge for even cooler aloe on your face.
