How to use pure aloe vera gel for acne*

What Makes Stockton Aloe Vera The Best?

From personal experience, we are convinced of these basic principles:

1 Nature has remedies that are often more effective and better for your health than anything the drugstore has to offerAm using it in SoCal as a moisturize as it has been over 95 the past few days.

2 The closer we can get to raw and natural substances, the more life-enhancing are the potential benefits Raw Aloe, for instance, can be much more beneficial than Aloe that has been filtered, pasteurized and preserved Every artificial treatment — whether by super-heating or by adding chemical preservatives — brings about changes to the gel that may not be desired

3 The closer you can get to the source of foods and personal care items, the fresher and healthier are the products Anything designed to sit on a shelf for months or years is suspect, in our opinion Fresh apples beat canned apples for nutritional value, and fresh Aloe beats preserved Aloe for the same reason Moreover, preservatives may pose unnecessary health risks We say “fresher is better”

This website has two aims: the first is to provide education about Aloe vera, especially the potent Aloe barbadensis miller-stockton variety The second is to help you obtain 100% pure, raw, hand-fileted Aloe vera gel and Aloe-based products that contain the highest life-enhancing goodness you can find

How to use pure aloe vera gel for acne

Aloe is a member of the lily family, and one that hails from dry parts of the world The plant stores the limited rain water it gets in its succulent leaves, in the form of a gel Long ago humans figured out that the jelly like contents of the aloe leaf could be used to heal the skin, and heal it really fast Whether from abrasion or sun, aloe gel applied regularly acted as a healing balm This was true in the biblical day and its true today

Wind Up Wound Healing

If you have a plant growing on the window sill, you can skip the shopping! Cut off a lower leaf and remove any spines, then split the leaf in half and scrape the gel that oozes out directly onto the affected part If you do not have a plant to hand, the next best thing is pure aloe gel available from the health food shop

Only buy pure aloe gel Most commercial “aloe” products(creams, moisturizers, shampoos, etc) do not contain enough aloe to make them medicinally active Stick to a jar of pure aloe gel Avoid products that contain other herbs Avoid products that are bright green; aloe gel is not green!

If the skin being treated becomes red, tender, swollen, and hot, see your health care practitioner

Do not apply aloe gel to surgical wounds until they are entirely healed, it could delay healing

Skins ulcers can be cancerous Any wound that stays open for more than a month should be checked by a dermatologist

Notes from the Eclectic Physicians

1874: JM Scudder

The use of Aloes in medicine should be quite limited, but still it has a place I believe that in small quantity and in combination with other agents that act upon the upper intestinal canal, it proves a good cathartic, as in the following: R Podophyllin, grs x; Leptandrin, grs xxx; Aloes, grs xx; Extract of Hyoscyamus, 3ss Make thirty pills One of them at night will prove an excellent laxative, and those who employ cathartics freely with like the formula

But it is not for this purpose that I would recommend Aloes, but for one that many seem very singular In small doses it exerts a direct influence upon the waster and nutrition of the nervous system In cases of feeble innervation, especially in persons of gross habit, it will be one of our best agents I have usually prescribed it with Tincture of Nux Vomica or with Tincture of Belladonna The dose of a strong tincture being from two to ten drops

In some cases it will provide serviceable when associated with the bitter tonics, as in this: Rx: Extract of Nux Vomica, grs vj; Aloes, grs xv; Hydrastine, 3ss Make thirty pills One may be given three or four times a day
