Aloe Vera is a medicinal plant that has been used for thousands of years to cure different diseases. It is a succulent plant species from the genus Aloe. It grows abundantly in tropical climates and has been used as a medicinal plant for centuries. The species is also used for decorative purposes and grows successfully indoors as a potted plant.
Aloe has many side shoots, and a shortened stem, which forms dense groups of compact rosettes of leaves that are usually meaty and somewhat curved, up to 20 inches (50 cm) long, 2-3 inches (6-7) cm wide, grayish-green with white spots, and have small thorns on the edges. Saponin, which possesses antibacterial effects, is abundant in Aloe Vera: it fights bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Thus, the plant is widely used in cosmetology, medicine, and even nutrition. Aloe Vera creams, gels, and ointments contain a clear gel found in Aloe Vera leaves. These products can be applied locally to treat a variety of skin diseases. It can be invasive in Europe, the West Indies, Asia, and America.
