Aloe Vera Powder
Dried Aloe Vera Powder (Aloe barbadenis) can be used in a variety of DIY skin care products, sun care products, shampoos and conditioners, as well as internally.
The aloe vera powder is made by extracting the sap from the fresh leaves, boiled to crystallize and then milled.
The Aloe Vera plant has been known and used for centuries. It is a true gift from nature. Ancient records show that the benefits of Aloe Vera have been known for centuries with its therapeutic advantages and healing properties. Many ancient works including the Bible, refer to the use of Aloe.
Aloe vera is commonly used in traditional medicine to treat skin disorders. In Ayurvedic medicine, it is said to have a cooling effect that balances aggravations of the pitta (heat) dosha. In traditional Chinese medicine, the gel’s bitter taste and cooling properties are said to benefit disorders of the liver and intestines.
When applied topically, aloe vera gel has a moisturizing, emollient effect. Cosmetics manufacturers will often exploit this property by infusing aloe vera powder into makeup, moisturizers, soaps, sunscreens, shaving creams, and shampoos. There are even aloe vera facial tissues that are designed to reduce nasal chafing.
One of the most popular uses of aloe vera gel is to aid in the healing of sunburns, burns, contact dermatitis, and minor cuts and abrasions. The freshly extracted gel has a cooling effect that may provide short-term relief of pain and itchiness.
There are no standard doses of aloe vera. The effects and risk of side effects can vary based on your age, weight, and current health.
If you decide to use an oral gel preparation, do so for no more than 10 days and stop immediately if you experience any side effects.
