Aloe Oil for Skin Care
Aloe oil can be used for many ailments. Most of us know it as helping with severe sunburns. It can also be used to help get rid of dandruff. It can be massaged into the scalp and the oil will help moisturize it.
Most of the health benefits provided by aloe vera come from its water-retaining, fleshy leaves— specifically the nutrient-rich gel extracted from them. It is usually the leaves or gel that is used to create the oil.
Aloe oil is produced through the process of maceration extraction. This means that it is soaked and then heated at extremely high temperatures. The plant will rupture and the hot oils will absorb its nutrients and the oil from the plant. This will be filtered by the manufacturer after some time.
The Ancient Egyptians valued the plant as a treatment for infections, rashes, and burns, and referred to it as the "plant of immortality." Other civilizations, such as the Arabs, Greeks, and Spaniards, used aloe vera to help reduce perspiration and eliminate body odor. Spanish missionaries often carried aloe vera with them to help treat the sick.
