Aloe vera is a magical plant. It can be used to nourish and moisturize skin. It can also be used to treat skin burns and sunburns

Thanks a lot for such a detailed explanation and enlightening the other hidden security bugs and plugins to make your wordpress more secure. Today itself, I am going to install the mentioned plugin and find out how many unwanted files are there which might be deleted.

There seems to be different types/kinds of aloe vera. What type should we grow/use? Even on this site, I see pics of different aloes. Does it make a difference?

 @RicksSekhon The best type to use is organic. I would go to your local health food store and speak with someone knowledgeable in the health section. It also depends on what you are using the aloe for; whether it be topical or for ingestion. But organic is always best! Thanks so much for reading.
