Have you ever been cut by a plant? You know, the kind of knife-wielding plant on a mission to scar your delicate skin?
Okay, I'm exaggerating just a bit. But seriously. Have you?
I was swiped nastily by an aloe leaf. I guess that's what I got for stomping around in my mother's herb garden.
I didn't learn my lesson and I got a few more swipes after that. Interestingly, the same plant that came after me was the same plant I used to heal those cuts.
I don't know if to call it a win-win but my skin won in the end. And days later the scars were nothing to talk about.
It's one of the reasons why I included Aloe in my first ever vegetable soap: The Aloes Nourish Me Bar.
It's a skin powerhouse that just keeps on giving or loving. And guess what? I'm giving away a Zaboca Butter Bar for every two Aloes Nourish Me Bars you purchase.
Yes, an extra bar tucked into your package once you purchase 2 Aloes Bars. This is for a limited time (ends June 13th) so head over to the Aloes Bar page, place your order and I will add an extra bar just for you.
Enjoy the rest of your day and this beautiful weather we're having. And please, stay away from knife-wielding plants okay? Okay, good.
