How To Keep An Aloe Vera Plant Alive


This Elixir of Life is the magical Aloe Vera.

And Yesss, I did just use a strooong Harry Potter reference.

Similar to Unicorn Blood, Aloe Vera’s are known for their miracle medical properties.

The clear gel inside aloe vera leaves is a thick, silvery-ish (maybe a stretch) magical substance packed with vitamins, enzymes & amino acids that are great for burns and day-to-day cuts.

It loves the sun, so you can pop it on a window sill.

It’s also extremely easy to look after, just water it with some plant food once every two weeks.

Avoid cutting it open & just buy a plaster. As the slaying of this green unicorn should be a crime.
