Aloe vera Flowers

Orange or yellow Aloe vera flowers are used to make a healing water called aloe flower essence. The flower stalks of the Aloe plant emerge from the rosette of leaves near the base.

The stalks may be single but will sometimes branch at the top. The straight, upright stems always hold the blooms well above the rosette of leaves.

The orange, or more rarely, yellow blooms are about 2 inches long and tubular in shape. They face the sky when they first form but bend toward the earth as they mature.

Because of their long, straight stems, aloe flowers make interesting additions to floral arrangements. The blooms are not noticeably fragrant.

Herbs the Natural Alternative ebook cover.

If, like me, you are sensitive to pharmaceuticals and tend to have adverse reactions to over-the-counter or prescription drugs, this comprehensive guide to using herbal alternatives may be just what you need to manage your health naturally.

I was diagnosed with asthma as a teenager. After several years of struggling with asthma medications and not really getting any better, I decided I could not take it anymore.

The drugs made me feel sleepy all the time.

I threw them away, determined to learn to treat my asthma naturally.

Drugs were much cheaper in those days. I was an impulsive teenage girl. I don't think you should throw your meds away until after you speak with your doctor and find a natural remedy that works!

For the last 30some years, I have been managing my asthma naturally.

I sprinkle ground black pepper on my food daily (it cuts mucus) and avoid my triggers. I also use thyme and cloves often in cooking as these 2 herbal anti-spasmodics relieve the bronchial spasms which happen during an asthma attack.

I have not had a full-blown attack in years!

Over the years, I have discovered many other safe, cheap alternatives to pharmaceuticals. They work if you know how to use them correctly.

That is the true value of Herbs the Natural Alternative. It tells you which herb to use to treat your ailment and how to use it.

Best of all, it is written with gardeners in mind. If you need help deciding which herbs to fill your medicinal garden with, download this book.

You won't be disappointed.
