Aloe vera is a succulent plant in the Aloeaceae family. The plant’s name is derived from the Arabic word alloeh meaning “a shining bitter substance” and the Latin word vera which means “true” or “authentic”. Aloe vera has a long, glorious history dating back to 2200 BC, when it was mentioned for the first time on a Sumerian clay tablet found in the ancient city of Nippur. This plant was seen as sacred and divine in some cultures.
Aloe vera exists on most of the continents, but is mainly grown in warm, tropical regions. It can survive drought but not frost.
The leaves of the aloe vera plant are serrated and form a rosette that starts at the base of the stem. Adult plants can grow up to a metre high. Each plant has between 12 and 16 leaves which can weigh up to 1.5 kg.
