Aloe Vera
Medicine Plant

An Aloe Vera plant is a drought resistant succulent that can be grown indoors or outdoors. Medicine Plant is the nickname given to an Aloe Vera because the sap from its leaves soothes minor skin irritations and burns. This makes it a great plant for a sunny kitchen.  An Aloe Vera plant has long, narrow, plump leaves with little spikes along the edges, so be very careful when handling it. This plant can be used as either a table plant or a floor plant. Aloe vera plants are considered poisonous if eaten and should be kept away from pets and children.
