  • The history of Aloe Vera

    The genuine Aloe Vera plant originates in North Africa, the Canary Islands and the Cape Verde. The use of Aloe Vera begins in 2200 BC with its benefits known across Persia, Egypt, ancient Greece, Italy, India and Africa. “The plant of immortality” as it was called was a popular laxative during the medieval era. It was used for the treatments of wounds and the embalming of the dead bodies. According to legends, Cleopatra and Nefertiti sought the natural beauty in the quality traits of Aloe, while Nicodemus used it to anoint Jesus' body. For the sake of the Aloe, Alexander the Great conquered the island of Socotra, which lies off the horn of Africa, in order to gain control of plantations, thus ensuring a continuous supply of plants for his wounded soldiers during his extensive military campaigns.

    Aloe Vera barbadensis is a herbaceous and succulent plant (meaning its leaves hold large quantities of water), considerably durable and consists of 96% water. The leafs are fleshy, greyish green, with serrated edges that are pinkish with numerous little spines. The flowers are yellow coloured, tubular and up to 3 cm long. There are a few white coloured spots on a short stem hidden in the middle. An adult plant reaches the heights of approximately 60cm to 100 cm and once mature it has from twelve to fifteen leaves. The leaves are quite large, they grow anywhere from 10 cm to 13 cm (and over) in width, at their widest point. In their adult stage the leaves are regularly known to weigh from 500 gr to over 1,200 gr. The leaf dimensions will vary depending on the quality of the soil in which they are grown, the climate and other natural elements.
