What is Aloe?

Aloe comes from a plant. It has thick pod like stems that hold this thick gel like liquid in them. It is used a lot for burns. My grandma has an aloe plant and whenever I have gotten sunburn I always cut off a stem and slice it open and rub it on the burn. It works wonders. There is a chemical in aloe called salicylic acid in it which helps the skin heal faster.
