Such a sweetie hubby got some amzon vouchers for his birthday and he got me a gift with some if it.

An aloe vera plant so I can snip bits of the leaves off and rub frsh aloe vera on my super dry and sore hands.

Feels lovely I have to say.

Ah how lovely, I must give it a try as my hands are always dry and sore and no amount of moisturiser seems to help.

They are really helpful and soothing, however they can grow quickly and my late mum's legacy is an abundance of Aloe Vera plants in dad's house, always handy but not in the amount we now have:-) Have given some away, but they keep growing.

I don't use soap anymore instead i use Hydromol Ointment. No more dry skin, rashes, sore bits. Just soft and smooth. Can't recommend it enough 🙂

They’re great Dee, I’ve got 2 courtesy of my daughter: hers keep reproducing. Best thing is you treat them like crap & they thrive; I was killing mine with kindness! Fab for sunburn too, my mum used them in Spain all the time x

How lovely of him... thoughtful too. I'm sure you'll find it very soothing. We were fortunate to have huge ones just in the ground in Spain to cut as needed. Take good care of it & it should reward you, overwater & it won't. I have one on my kitchen windowsill & whilst it's coming back now I lost a few spears early on so now it's in a pot that the plantpot doesn't reach the bottom of, a size too small, so it can drain through & I can discard excess water, it's not wasted, the palm gets it! Never needed to water one before! x

Oh, forgot to say. Pot on any babies, you can make a gift of them to family or friends. I have two & another still in the adult growing.
