The Aloe Vera plant has many aliases — the Miracle Plant, the Medicine Plant, the Burn Plant. Whatever you want to call it, this plant has a clear gel inside the leaves that is used for a multitude of purposes and it is easy to grow. Eddie Russell with Cornelius and Calloway’s Nursery has tips for growing your own Aloe Vera plant and a few DIY recipes. Aloe Vera’s reputation for healing, soothing and rejuvenating is evident in the many products now on the market. But it is just as popular to apply the sap directly to the skin, which is why more and more people are opting to grown their own.
