Thanksgiving 30 Day Challenge: Day 21

Our Aloe Vera  plant, aka the healing plant, has been  the go to first aid kit in our house for many years. It has been a life saver for minor cuts, burns, scrapes and skin irritations.

I am thankful for all the wonderful medicinal qualities of this plant. It is a welcome succulent in our home.


  1. When I was a little girl a neighbor had this plant and she was always breaking a piece off and rubbing it on our scrapes. I remember her seeming quite 'earthy' back then compared to the other moms with their Bactene and bandaids!

  2. They are the best plants to have around. I love them for burns and sunburn. Have a Blessed Thanksgiving.

  3. Yes, this is a great plant! And I love Aloe Vera gel for skin and hair. Great posts for the Thanksgiving 30-Day Challenge!
