  1. Aloe vera is good for so many things health like you mention in this article. I remember how well it healed my mosquito bites and sunburn when I went to my parents farm in the summer. My brother had a small bald spot and he used aloe vera and he recovered his hair. I will try this aloe vera toothgel. Thank you for your article.
