All about Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is an incredible substance.

The Aloe I use comes from the Aloe Vera Barbadensis plant (although there are many other varieties that are also beneficial).

What Can Aloe Vera Help With?

🌿Minor burns – apply aloe vera gel to the affected area up to 3 times daily.
🌿Sunburn – while it can help soothe sunburn it is NOT an effective way of preventing sunburn and is no substitute for wearing sun protection.
🌿Skin scuffs – If you’ve scuffed your skin apply neat aloe vera gel to the area for quick relief from pain and burning.
🌿Cuts – aloe vera boosts your collagen and fighting bacteria so pop some on minor cuts up to 3 times a day.
🌿Dry skin – aloe absorbs easily, making it ideal for oily skin. However it can help treat dry skin too as it can seal moisture into your skin.
🌿Cold sores – apply a small amount of aloe vera to your cold sore twice a day until it goes away.
🌿Eczema – aloe can alleviate the dry, itchy skin associated with eczema.
🌿Psoriasis – as with eczema aloe vera may help alleviate inflammation and itchiness from psoriasis. Apply twice daily to affected areas.
🌿Inflammatory acne – aloe vera has such amazing anti-inflammatory benefits so it may help treat inflammatory forms of acne. Just apply with a cotton bud directly to spots and pimples 3 times a day.

What Makes My Handmade Soap So Special?

My soaps are luxury items. They are gifts in themselves. Their wrapping is pretty enough that you could just give a bar to someone as it is and for it to look like a present, without the need for more wrapping paper or packaging.
