History of Aloe
Drawings of aloe have been found in the wall carvings of Egyptian temples erected in the 4th millennium BC. Called the “Plant of Immortality,” it was a traditional funerary gift for the pharaohs. The Egyptian Book of Remedies (ca. 1500 BC) notes the use of aloe in curing infections, treating the skin, and preparing drugs that were chiefly used as laxatives. In the Bible, Nicodemus provided a mixture of myrrh and aloes for the preparation of Christ's body. Alexander the Great (356 to 323 BC) is said to have conquered the island of Socotra to obtain control of aloe. In 74 AD, the Greek physician Dioscorides recorded its use to heal wounds, stop hair loss, treat genital ulcers, and eliminate hemorrhoids. In the 6th century AD, Arab traders carried it to Asia. From the Mediterranean region, it was carried to the New World in the 16th century by Spanish explorers and missionaries. In the modern era, its clinical use began in the 1930s as a treatment for roentgen dermatitis. (1)
