Aloe: You Stink Like Armpit But You Are Pure Medicine
Posted Oct 23 2010 4:00pm
I have fond (read: not fond at all) childhood memories of my brother and father chasing me with stinky, slimy pulpy aloe leaves. My dad has been an avid user of aloe as he claims it keeps the tan on longer. I claim that aloe smells like arm-pit and I might look prettier with a tan but I smell prettier without aloe all over my me. Needless to say, we all know of aloe as the go-to remedy for sunburns. Did you know, however, that pure, straight from the plant aloe is also an incredible super food with amazing medicinal and healing properties? You couldn’t have! Well… I didn’t.
