Aloe vera is commonly grown as a houseplant and gained favor because the gel from its leaves makes a soothing skin salve that aides in burn relief. It has thick, succulent leaves that are plumped up with a watery gel. The leaves grow from the base of the plant, in a rosette, and have jagged edges with flexible spines.
