Patient Information Leaflet:
The name ‘Aloe Vera’ comes from the Arabic word ‘aloeh’, which means ‘crystalline and bitter sap’ and ‘vera’ which in Latin means “real”, that is a suggestive name for the plant´s powerful therapeutic effect. The oldest reference to this “miracle plant” was found engraved on a Sumerian tablet dating from 2100 BC, which shows that aloe vera has been known and used as a medicinal plant for over 4000 years. The first ancient medical treaty which mentions aloe vera and its healing effects, is called ‘Papyrus Ebers’ (approximately 1553-1550 BC). The ancient Egyptians called it “the plant of immortality” and placed it in the pharaohs` tombs to ensure the health of their spirit after death.
In ancient Egypt, queen Cleopatra used fresh aloe vera gel to keep her skin soft and smooth, and in Japan, aloe vera was used by the imperial family.
