Fresh aloe vera gel is moist and cooling, a bit salty, softening and restoring. In my creams it helps to moisten dryness, reduce inflammation, relieve irritation, promote tissue repair. Traditionally used for dermatitis, burns, leg ulcers, nail fungus and athletes foot, and as first aid disinfectant for many kinds of tissue trauma.
