User Comments about Aloe Vera
25 Jan 2012 It works decently on burns, but if you use it fresh from a plant be careful because it will stain clothes brown :(

12 Jan 2011 whenever i get a bad sunburn, i always put aloe vera on it, fresh aloe works the best. aside from the crude smell it gives off, it works pretty well to eliminate the hot to the touch skin, as well as take some of the redness away.

02 Aug 2010 I once got a small burn and it left a burn spot on my arm. I rubbed the Aloe Vera on my burned arm and few weeks later the burn spot on my arm healed.
