Aloe Vera

A plant that has many healing benefits, including its ability to clean air. The gel inside an aloe plant can help heal cuts and is also very effective at soothing burns, including sunburn.   Keep one on hand in case of emergency.  Nature knows best how to heal our bodies and souls.   Caring for plants can also bring you so much joy and helps you keep a positive outlook.

Don’t forget to place your plants in an area with the right amount of light.  If you aren’t good at watering often, succulents and cactus don’t need much and also help to clean the air.

Enjoy this time rejuvenating your sanctuary.  Home is truly where the heart is.  Take care of it and you.
