Cleopatra is the ultimate name for beauty even after eons of her death. Here is a small beauty secret that made the Egyptian pharaoh exemplarily beautiful, and that is Aloe Vera. Aloe Vera is considered a natural healer that has answers for almost all skin related queries. It has derived from the Arabic word ‘alloeh’, which means radiance. As a legend goes, Alexander the Great was enticed by the miraculous healing power of Aloe Vera that led him to conquer the island of Socotra. Though it is a native plant of Somalia for long from the fourth century B. C., it has found a conspicuous position in Egyptian, Chinese, Greek, Indian, and Christian literature. Today, Aloe Vera is earning back its lost glory as the world is going through a ‘go-green’ phase. Aloe Vera gels are the best available product of Aloe Vera that you can buy from market. Little do you know that Aloe Vera gel is something that can be made at home without much of the damage done to its medicinal properties?
