A perennial succulent plant that needs to be kept in doors though the winter. It should be watered sparingly. The leaves contain a soothing gel that is excellent for all types of burns. The leaves are cut from the plant, split open and the gel applied directly to the skin. Once a leaf is cut it forms an automatic seal which means whole leaves can be stored in an air tight container or cling film in the fridge.
