Aloe is one of the most commonly used health plants of all time. The genus is native to Africa, and is very common in South Africa’s Cape Province. Aloe has been widely cultivated throughout the world and especially in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, in the United States. Although Aloe Vera is a tropical plant, the root can survive freezing air temperatures, so long as the ground is not frozen and the root destroyed. One of the first recorded accounts in our understanding of Aloe can be found in the Greek Herbal of Dioscorides (41 A.D.-68 A.D.). This master of Roman pharmacology developed his knowledge and skill as he traveled with that great empire's armies.
