History of Aloe Vera
The Egyptians called Aloe the “Plant of Immortality” because it can live and even bloom without soil. Aloe has been used medicinally since at least the first century C.E. and continues to be used extensively worldwide.
Aloes is indigenous to eastern and southern Africa and grown in cape colony, Zanzibar and islands of Socotra, also cultivated in Europe and many parts of India including northwest Himalayan region.
Distinct parts of the aloe plant and various species are used medicinally. The gel from the fresh leaf is used in a wide range of internal and external applications. The internal use of the gel is regulated as a dietary supplement.
Since Aloe has naturalized throughout the tropics and warm regions worldwide, its true origin is not known.

Aloe is a perennial, with 15 to 30 fleshy leaves up to 0.5 m long and 8 to 10 cm across at the base. Saw-like teeth mark the margins of the leaves.
