I am seeking to get a webgroup based on this amazing healer that I still want to learn more about.
Most know Aloe Vera is great for skin. I also know is it is absolutely amazing as nose and ear drops for early colds and sore throats http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFhm-RAXPaU
and very often as pain relief for sore muscles and strains.
What I would like to know, in case anyone has the knowledge, is how to repair damaged roots that came about from others over-watering a few of mine? I have sandy soil and am currently experimenting with magnets pushed into the soil and 10 minute Bioptron Light treatments, as a succulent potting mix didn't do much good)
Aloe Vera Barbadensis
It is always a mystery as to why I see every other type of Aloe imaginable other than this one in people's gardens.
As I understand it Aloe Vera Barbadensis is the most therapeutic Aloe Vera.
It differs from the usual Kiwi Aloe Vera in that it soon sheds it's white spots and the base of the leaves can be over 10 cm wide. See video above at 45 second mark.
The female has a yellow flower that is quite erect in spring early summer.
When the leaf is cut you see a yellow sap, but within a few hours this turns a maroon colour.
I have just bought 4 more plants from B.O.P and seek a garden in Grey Lynn that I can park them for a while as my place is rather lacking in sunlight. Sometimes in early transplant stages they need abit of nurturing (protection from frost and excessive sun) and they also seem to do well when surrounded by grass or weeds. Benefits to Grey Lynn hosters of my plants will be a living medicinal chest for skin conditions, sinuses, colds, sprains and injuries. I have the latest edition of "The Silent Healer" by Bill Coats in which he chronicles pages of healing applications submitted by Doctors and Leading football coaches and physicians so I am keen to turn others on to this little magician.
