A plant that can easily grown at home, very little is known about its internal consumption. Aloe Vera or “Ghritakumari” has traditionally been an intrinsic part of Ayurveda for a long time. Some of its beneficial properties include its alkaline nature that helps balance acidity in our body, prevention of constipation, detoxifying the body and maintaining a clear skin.
