Aloe Vera - wonder plant!

What do you know about aloe vera? Think it's just a good skin saviour for sunburn? Me too. At least, that's what I used to think about it. Since my yummy mummy friend Kate told me all about this wonder plant, I think it's pretty amazing.

Great for kids, adults, people with sensitive skin or specific skin or medical conditions and for pets too, it seems there's nothing that aloe vera can't do. Pretty much.

I've been using the aloe vera shampoo from Forever to help with my scalp psoriasis and the hand and skin gel to wash Ethan with and for general use in the bathroom (watch my November favourites video to find out a bit more about these two personal picks of mine). 

Because Kate from Aloe Saint has opened my eyes to the beneficial effects aloe vera has to offer, I've invited her to share with you her top five Forever products:

Aloe Vera Gelly

A well known product - due to its notoriously plain and simple ingredient - but as this is from Forever, it contains the potent inner leaf gel for maximum effect. It's an absolute MUST to have in the first aid cupboard, or to take out and about, especially on holidays! It's great for treating burns, cuts or grazes on you or your pets. With moisturising properties too. nothing can compete with this multifunctional product in my household.

Aloe Vera Gel

This is where the Forever all started. This one product alone is responsible for 50% of our yearly turnover! I take 60ml a day alongside some of the other (more flavourful) drinking gels. It's a great pick me up which again only uses the pure inner leaf gel that is stabilised and transformed in this nutritious, skin and digestion benefiting drink. It definitely has the WOW factor for me.

Forever Bee Pollen

This is an amazing superfood that's great for energy plus it helped no end with my hayfever symptoms in the summer. 
I take two every day. It's also a great source of protein so a good supplement for vegetarians. 

Forever Bright Toothgel

My teeth and mouth have never felt so squeaky clean & minty fresh since I started using this product. It feels like I've brushed and used mouthwash in one go! With aloe vera (which you can't taste) and added bee propolis, as well as a natural whitener, this terrific toothpaste is also fluoride-free, so it's great for children and pets too. Trust me - give it a go!

Sonya Aloe Nourishing Serum

I wanted to choose one item from the Sonya Skincare collection and this is definitely in a league of its own! It feels luxurious on my skin. You add a small amount of serum and spread evenly before applying your chosen moisturiser. With extracts of white tea as well as the base ingredient of aloe vera, this is a real pamper product that lasts for ages and would make for a perfect gift for someone this Christmas.

Kate has put together the very best that Forever has to offer in a fab range of aloe vera pamper hampers, available to view and buy from her Facebook page, plus she can personalise these to include any combination of products to suit the recipient if you have in mind. 

Just drop her a line and she can tell you even more about the power of aloe vera and can help you pick the perfect pamper present - for someone you know or just for you!
