Big Sky Flowers - Aloe Vera
This medicinal plant grows well indoors in Ireland. The flesh has a myriad of uses including making a salve for burns. And with more cooking happening with the run up to Christmas, burns are an occupational hazard.
And even if you are very careful, and don't burn yourself, having indoor plants to care for reduces anxiety, they provide a link to nature when we can't get out. Taking a few minutes to rub a damp cloth to the leaves of my plants , removing any dust and making it easier for them to breathe always soothes me.
