Good morning beautiful humans, happy Sunday! Thank you for spending part of your morning with me or evening depending on where you live in this great big beautiful world. Welcome to Life with Lane, my life through words, pictures, and food!
A few months ago I wrote a blog about the healing power of aloe vera. Today is my follow up to that blog. I am such a huge of trying to heal things with natural products. Not only are natural things great for the body, they are cost efficient.
Before Dusty passed away I would use aloe for his itchy skin, as a snack for when he had a cough to soothe his throat, and when I gave him a bath. I used it to scrub his skin. He loved it.
I was unaware that schnauzer breeds have bad skin. Onyx has awful skin, bad allergies, and I think he also has sinus problems. He is constantly scratching and he had this one spot that he scratched a lot and he lost his hair. So, I started putting fresh aloe on it from my plant outside. His hair has grown back after putting aloe on it everyday for several months.
If it still looks like his hair is missing its because his skin is discolored because of his allergies and scratching. He gave me permission to post his picture. He got his confidence back, lol! You must remember this is a 14 year old dog we are talking about. My old man is 98 years old and his hair grew back. I love aloe vera!
I used it in the morning under my eyes when I feel tired. When I had that break out from trying a new product, I put aloe on my face and it healed my scars. In addition to that, aloe has helped the following.
- Dark circles under the eyes
- Bug bites
- Red spots
- Back-up for toothpaste
- Snacks for my pups
- Facial mask
Thanks for reading my blog. I hope you give aloe vera a try, It really can work wonders. You won’t know until you try it though. Have a wonderful blessed day and always be kind! Follow me on Instagram http://www.instagram.com/lifewithlane14
