Aloe Vera is one of the best nature's healing plant. They are used to make desserts, but have medicinal purposes too, thanks to its antibacterial, anti inflammatory properties.

Some medicinal uses for Aloe Vera

•Healing minor, first degree burns.

Aloe Vera can heal burns very quick, trust me, I know. I was cooking the other day then oil got on me, I put on aloe very fast, it soothe the pain. At night I wrapped the gel with a bandage while sleeping, and the next day, the burn didn't even show up. Only do this for MINOR burns, not deep burns, as they can slow down the healing process.

•Healing minor cuts

Like burns, the cuts should be minor.

•Reduce insect bites

Aloe Vera can reduce pesky insect bites.

There are thousands more of uses for aloe vera, these are just basics, as you can use them to cure acne, reduce scars, etc.

Ginger, olive oil, that's it?? What the heck! What about Epsom Salts, the mineral that can be absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin? That reduces cramps in the muscles (like for bad charley horses, soak in Espom Salts, which is magnesium) for instant relief? it is also a quick, strong, safe laxative. I can't believe you posted like 3 items, and want to be voted for the best home remedies for this year.... gosh put some sweat into it!
