The Benefits of Aloe Vera Juice

Okay folks, now that I am back, I wish to start the barrage of new posts that will be coming with one about the benefits of the wonderful aloe vera plant.

But first of all, before I begin listing all of the health benefits of this amazing plant, I wish to account a personal story of how this plant has helped me.

There's not that many young folks who do not struggle with acne. Sure, there are a few blessed individuals with an almost flawless complexion, and you wonder how they do it. Well, some people just have genes engineered to give them healthy looking skin. Or, maybe their body is just that healthy as not to cause acne to appear, because their composition, their gut, and their hormones are in balance.

Some of us don't quite have that advantage. Sometimes it may be severe. Sometimes very minor. But still.

Acne. Is. Annoying.

Last year I began searching for home-made natural remedies for this plague that most of us face.

I read of lemon juice, I read of toothpaste (!? okay...), I read of harsh chemicals, and I read of Aloe Vera Juice.

Seriously? Hmmm.

I began researching more, and I soon purchsed my first bottle of the juice from the health food store.

I was skeptical at first, and I just knew it wasn't going to work. But, night after night after washing my face with just water, and then applying the juice, I began to notice a difference!

It took consistency, and it didn't eliminate every single stinkin' blemish, but it helped dramatically. It has worked better than anything else I have tried.
And I can tell, if I go a few days without using it, well, the little stinkers start to appear yet again!

I believe it really works. It will, of course, be different for every individual, but it still is very beneficial.

I would encourage any of you who may struggle with acne to at least give it a try.

Another post on the benefits of aloe vera juice, gel, etc. is to come soon.

(an apology)

Hello blogosphere. Jess is back. It's no use in apologizing for the scarce amount of posts on this blog, so I will spare you all an explanantion. :)

However, I, Jess Warren, promise to TRY and get back to posting on this blog. I don't know how often that will be, but I will try. I have lots of ideas and such about posts, I just lack time (and sometimes concentration!)

I will post things that have to deal with herbs, herbal remedies, supplements, natural body care, and much more. It may not always have to deal with herbs, but it will always deal with well-being or natural healing.

Anyway, please keep your eyes out for posts in the near future. Hopefully we can get this thing going again. Thanks ya'll!!
