Aloe is a native plant of Africa that has been traditionally used as a topical preparation for burns and wounds. The thick mucilaginous juice found inside the leaves is thought to have a cooling, soothing effect on the skin. The juice, when taken internally, is thought to play important roles in supporting the gastrointestinal system and proper bowel maintenance.
