Aloe

I just got myself a huge aloe vera plant. I wanted a real aloe vera for so long and now I found one. There are so many aloe varieties but only few of them are suppose to be edible.

Well, no, I’m not going to eat it 🙂 but I am going to use its leaves when needed to extract the gel for medicinal purposes.

I also found recently that aloe vera can be used as an ingredient to prepare a rooting gel. So I will give it a try when I’ll propagate my herbs. The recipe for the rooting gel is simple. You need to mix : 3 tablespoons of aloe gel freshly extracted (contains natural hormones that stimulates root growth), 1 tablespoon of honey (contains enzymes that stimulates root growth and also have anti-bacterial properties) and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon (has anti-fungal properties).

So I think I made a good acquisition, is good for me and for my garden.

    E minunata pentru arsuri, daca pui gelul imediat nu ramana absolut nici o urma.
    De mancat ce sa zic, am vazut prin ceva emisiuni ca in America de Sud se vand pahare cu gel proaspat de baut. Dar e amar si cu o textura deloc imbietoare. Ar mai fi reteta de pe vremuri cu planta macerata in vin, ma tot bate gandul sa incerc dar a ramas in stadiul de proiect.
