Canary Aloe Vera, ecological and pure

Canary Aloe Vera, in its variety Barbadensis Miller, is a plant that accumulates hundreds of nutrients, properties and benefits, not only because of the nature of the plant but acquired from the mineral-rich soil of the islands. This variety, native to the north-east of Africa and Arabia, requires a climate with plenty of sun and little rain, which fits perfectly with the subtropical zone to which the archipelago belongs.

The proximity to the sea and the volcanic nature of the Canary soil is an extra nutrient in the Aloe Vera plants grown on the islands, which grow and acquire unique properties from the land. The mature Aloe Vera plant collects in its leaves a natural gelatin that does not need to be treated, and that contains a host of health benefits, which can be purchased in gels, juices, and that serve as a natural remedy for both the care of skin as for hygiene products such as soaps, shampoos and for natural cosmetics.

Aloe Vera is healing for the skin due to its power of cellular regeneration, natural antiseptic, digestive and anti-inflammatory. The plant has been used since antiquity to treat burns, dermatitis, acne, psoriasis and eczema, as well as colds, constipation, intestinal problems and joint and muscle pain.

Among the nutrients which the Canary Aloe Vera contains, there are 75 beneficial substances for our health, with a high content of vitamin A, B and C, Calcium, Sodium, Iron, Potassium, Magnesium, Chromium, Zinc, Manganese, Copper, Folic Acid and 7 of the 8 essential Amino Acids for the organism.

The "Canary ointment" of Colón

Aloe Vera from the Canary Islands has many historical anecdotes related to its use during centuries. Christopher Columbus, on his trip to America, landed in the Canary Islands and took a large number of Canary Aloe Vera plants, which he used to treat and heal the skin of the crew on their journey looking for a new route to the Indies.

This trip finally culminated with the discovery of the American continent, where this species were cultivated and spread rapidly. Writings of the time frequently cite an expression that comes from Aloe Vera, which they call "Canary ointment", to refer to the "miraculous remedy" of nature.
