Aloe vera is a succulent plant renowned for its medicinal and cosmetic properties. This evergreen perennial forms rosettes of thick, fleshy leaves that are typically green and can have serrated edges. The gel found inside the leaves is widely used for its soothing and healing properties, making aloe vera a popular ingredient in skincare products, sunburn relief, and various topical applications. In addition to its practical uses, aloe vera is often cultivated as an ornamental plant, appreciated for its low-maintenance requirements and ability to thrive in arid conditions. It is commonly grown in gardens, indoor settings, and even as a potted plant, providing both functional and aesthetic benefits.
