Aloe Vera is an easy-care plant known for its medicinal qualities and love for the sun!
The plant is characterized by leaves arranged in tufts and with a fleshy appearance. Inside, these leaves are filled with an aqueous substance, a kind of gel known for its toning, purifying, anti-inflammatory and cicatrizing properties.
Aloe vera has been known to mankind for thousands of years. On the papyrus of Eberscen (ancient Egyptian medical book) are transcribed 12 medical recipes with aloe vera. For Cleopatra and Nefertiti it was the central element of their daily beauty program.

Think of a desert.
Be careful not to wet the leaves to prevent moisture from causing mold and fungi to proliferate.
