You’ve sure seen the pile of ALOE products available all over the place. Beside creams and masks and gels you’ll find aloe yoghurt, aloe Muesli, aloe juices – aloe just about everywhere! Hardly anyone knows however that it’s easy to grow pure ALOE in your own natural beauty garden, with plants that are not only beautiful to look at but will – used as pure gel – last for a lifetime! The original plant, also known as desert lilly or Curacoa aloe, comes from Arabia and was already used by Cleopatra to keep her skin fresh and toned…
Coccaro Spa therapist Manuela Donnaloia explains how to harvest, cut and use the famous Aloe Vera plant that is growning all around the masseria. Pure pleasure for the skin that doesn’t cost anything – could it be easier?
Simply cut one of the leaves in slices and press the liquid out. It might seem to be sticky at first but it will dissolve in no time. Keep the aloe vera leaf in the fridge and use it (it doesn’t take more than a new cut to “melk” it again) whenever your skin feels dry or after a day on the beach; relieves even on sore bits.
