Health – Tip 8 Your best eco-friend to treat minor burns
You are an excellent cooker and take time to prepare supper for your family and friends? Then Aloe Vera Gel should be in your pharmacy.
Indeed in order to avoid having special expensive creams against burns from minor mishaps in the kitchen, you should buy your Aloe Vera gel. The gel is composed of clear mucilage at the heart of the leaves of Aloe Vera plant. You can buy an organic gel on the market or extract the gel by your own from a plant you already have. The gel has highly emollient properties which softens the tissues.
Apply the gel on the burns more than once per day and the magic will happen. If you want to extract the gel from your plant, you must cut a piece of the leaf and press, a clear viscous liquid come out and this is your fresh gel. Be careful; make sure you use the gel right away because it cannot be preserved.
In case you prefer to buy your gel from the market, ensure you check that the brand you choose has the highest percentage of natural gel (usually you can find until 90% to 99%).
