Sitting in our kitchen my informant and I were talking about our grandmothers she said that her grandmother had aloe leaves to cure all of her sicknesses, “if we were sick and had a fever she would go to one of her plants pull off a leaf and rub it on our foreheads, if we got a cut she would rub a leaf on it, if we had a soar throat she would use the aloe leaves, she used them for everything”

The grandma uses aloe as a miracle drug and probably could have some sort of placebo affect where it would work even by rubbing a leaf on the throat to get rid of a sore throat.
