7 things you can do with an aloe vera plant

4. Use it to treat wounds

Aloe vera can heal wounds faster and reduce scars. According to research, the juice of an aloe vera plant is said to make small wounds heal a lot faster. You can put the gel of the aloe vera plant in a blender to create a thinner liquid.

5. Make-up remover

If you have sensitive skin, it can be very hard to find a makeup remover that doesn’t sting. Look no further for a makeup remover! Put some plant gel on a cotton pad and gently massage it into your skin. You can then easily remove your make-up.

6. Exfoliate

While you’re taking care of your skin, you can also use the aloe vera gel to make a facial scrub. Mix some gel with a little baking soda and you’re done!

7. Make a mouthwash

A 2014 study published in the Ethiopian Journal of Health Sciences shows that you can use aloe vera as a mouthwash. The plant contains a good dose of vitamin C, which prevents the production of plaque. Aloe vera can also provide relief if you suffer from swollen gums.
