Aloe vera plant (Aloe barbadensis miller) vs bottled gel
Aloe vera (Aloe Barbadensis miller) plant vs bottled gel
Had I been introduced to the Aloe vera plant before becoming a MLM member of a US based company, I would have had more trust in the plant. Not because these bottled products are any less effective but they are prohibitively expensive. The price is built up taking into account the layers of the marketing pyramid. The price therefore is increased to almost 800%.
I no longer market the bottled Aloe vera which has other supplements in it suiting different needs. One can go for these herbal supplements independently too, thus keeping the cost under control
The only advantage I see with bottled products is that not many can have plants as they would not have the space.
I have many plants of Aloe vera and I can confidently say that it is a wonder plant.
