Beyond the topical use for our skin, did you know that this same plant can be just as healing to our insides as it is on our outsides? Think about what aloe does to the skin when we have a burn, it can have a similar effect on our digestive tract. One great way to include it in your diet is putting it into a smoothie. It can be quite bitter and if you take the gel right out of the aloe leaf it can be slimy - so this makes it a lot more appetizing.
