Cost: I dunno, some dollars?
It started with a couple humble aloe leaves that my Mom gave to me. She had pulled a shoot off of her plant, wrapped the roots in a moist paper towel, and put it in a Zip Loc bag to put in my suitcase.
Now I have 7 aloe plants, I’ve given several away, and I left a big one in the ground at my old place. If you give aloe enough sunshine and water, it will grow like crazy.
I was a little hesitant to write about my aloe, since it doesn’t exactly save me money. It’s still handy to have around the house.
Some things I use it for:
- Sunburn relief
- Facial moisturizer
- Numbing my skin when I pluck my eyebrows
If you know someone with aloe, ask if you can have a shoot. If you know me, let me hook you up!
