TMR Frugal Living Tip #22

Today’s thrifty tip is buy an aloe vera plant. This is a wonderful plant that you can use for many first-aid remedies.

Aloe vera is great to use on: scrapes, insect bites, stings, cuts, burns and especially a sunburn. You can also use it for acne and patches of eczema.

All you have to do is cut off a small piece and squeeze out the gel to apply on the affected area. If you know someone that already has a plant, then ask for a couple of shoots. I have mine in a pot on a sunny windowsill inside my house. They are very easy to grow, and require little water since it’s part of the cactus family.

Do you own an aloe vera plant?
