Cooling Aloe

I love the way aloe adheres to the skin, creating a perfect cooling bandage for burns.
I "filet" the leaves, trim the spikes and freeze them in strips. They work cooling wonders! Plus you get to pretend you are the creature from the black lagoon or some such entity as you heal and mend.

I was intrigued by your blog name so I followed the link from Rainbowmom. You have a very interesting blog. Plant lore, herbalism, edible weeds are all things I like to learn about.

I love Aloe. I really love this plant and admire it often but whenever I bring one home.. it dies! I fear I have upset the Aloe Spirits somehow now.. I wonder what I keep doing wrong. Fussing too much maybe. :)
