Aloe vera has a millennia-long history of use in natural medicine. The oldest records of aloe vera use go far back to ancient Egypt, where aloe vera was called the “plant of immortality,” and was presented as a burial gift to pharaohs.
What Aloe Vera Is Used For
The most common uses of aloe vera include topical application for treatment of various skin conditions, and oral use as a laxative.
