Because of its natural antiseptic qualities and its cooling soothing effect it can be used to soothe minor skin problems, such as sunburn, cuts and superficial burns and also more serious ones such as psoriasis, eczema and acne. It can aid digestion and also shampoos containing aloe vera are good for the hair.
