Aloe vera history, according to botanists, seems to start in the warm dry climate of Africa. But today it can be found in many warm climates around the world. The plant is very adaptable it can grow in temperatures as high as 104 degrees and the root can survive freezing air temperatures as long as the ground does not freeze. It can also survive in a drought.
Aloe history is recorded as far back as Persia. It has also been recorded in most other areas of the world, like Egypt, the Middle East, Greece, Europe, India, Africa, Asia, Japan, the Philippines and Hawaii. An Egyptian document, dating back to B.C. 1550, is the first detailed discussion on the powerful properties of aloe vera. It discussed 12 different formulas using aloe vera mixed with other ingredients, taken internally and used externally to treat human disorders.
Western mans understanding of medicinal plants came from the father of modern medicine, Hypocrites around 460 B.C. and during the same period aloe vera had reached widespread use according to Copra’s Indigenous Drugs of India. It noted it pure cleansing power along with the external use for inflamed, painful parts of the body, were too well known in India to need any special mention.
Western man’s aloe vera history began with Dioscorides, the master of Roman pharmacology, who wrote about the powers of aloe vera. He said “ it’s juices induced sleep, cleansed the stomach and loosened the belly” He further said” the aloe’s bitter sap was a very good treatment for boils, easing hemorrhoids, healing bruises, boils, tonsils, gum irritation and medicine for the eyes”.
Today aloe vera juice, like that found in poga moonga, used internally and everything from beauty supplies, creams for external use and pills for internal use. The more it is studied, the more it is being recommended to be used, for many more disorders and chronic illnesses. Aloe alone is bitter tasting but combined with pomegranate juice and moringa in poga moonga, make the hard to drink aloe a very tasty drink.
