Aloe Vera God's Angel


Aloe Vera God’s Angel

O behold the green aloe with succulent stems

It’s a Godsend

And people see this plant as an angel


Strangers – ordinary folk, gardeners,

And farmers do their part to grow this plant

They are sure to care and nurture it in the right way

And that’s the love they share with nature

Aloe Vera must be watered infrequently to discourage rot

So, its caretakers have to be sure the soil is dry before watering it


The aloe needs six to eight hours of direct sunlight daily

And there must be sandy soil if the plant is grown in-or-outdoors

If the tips of the aloes become brown

It’s a problem with too much watering

This plant even grows well indoors with indirect sunlight

But still growers must check the soil

And remove roots that rot


Aloe Vera is an angel because of its life-generating properties

And it’s a popular ingredient in Indian and South Asian dishes

It can be eaten cooked or raw

But what else is this plant good for?

For centuries it has been used as a tropical skin cream

It’s a laxative that helps with constipation.

The meat inside its leaves is used for treating skin conditions like psoriasis

And aloe creams have a calming effect by reducing itchiness, and inflammation of the skin


“God, thank you for Aloe Vera - the flourishing angelic plant that provides us with many health benefits.”
