It is suspected that the antibacterial property of the Aloe vera is the cause of the pain relief (from burns and cuts) reported by so many people.
Today, you can find Aloe vera outside Africa since it is a common garden plant, mainly in dry areas where gardens must be prepared with the climate in mind.
Aloe vera is in addition commercially cultivated all around the world to be used in natural cures.
Outside Africa, you will find the major Aloe vera farms in the Mediterranean region, the U.S., the Caribbean and Japan. An Aloe vera plant will in addition do well indoors, but be sure that it can grow extremely large and require re-potting.
Just like all the other succulent plants, the Aloe vera plant can store a large amount of water inside of its large fleshy leaves. This is an adaptation to a life in regions susceptible to droughts. Wild Aloe vera is usually found in regions that experience large temperature differences between day and night.
When the dew falls, the Aloe vera can absorb the moisture and use it to survive and thrive.
