How do I save my aloe plant from nearly freezing to death?

How do I save my aloe plant from nearly freezing to death?
I accidentally left her outside most of this week, during below freezing temperatures. Now I brought her inside, placed her near the window, and I’m praying *sigh* Her symptoms are- a lot of her leaves are drooping and leaking aloe. A few of her leaves near the center/core are still upright and warm to the touch, but the ones that are drooping are dark down to a certain point and are cold to the touch. Please help me save my baby!

Put her under a heat lamp, a grow lamp, and keep her by a sunny window (where it won’t get cold). Give her a good drink of water (but don’t drown the plant, it was make for the desert after all) and give her a little fertilizer (the kind you can dissolve into the water). This will sound weird, but talk to your plant, play some happy music, etc. Plants react “emotionally” when another plant is killed or when the killer of the plant comes into the room. Thus I’m thinking happy vibes will help.
Your plant is in shock but with careful attention she’ll recover.

I am a low bp patient. I am using aloe vera gel. What is the time taken by aloe vera gel to show its effects and when can I come to know its effects?

Answer by TruthB
Any patient wishing to use aloe vera natural remedy must consult with his or her doctor first before attempting to use it. Research where ever you heard aloe vera gel would work on low blood pressure.

Is aloe vera and rosehip oil good for scars?
I have a few 3 year old raised burn scars on my chest and shoulders. I heard cocoa butter, rosehip oil and vitamin E are good for them, but what about aloe vera? What about Aloe? Also, how about vaseline with cocoa butter?

Answer by Traci H
The only one that I heard that really works is the rosehip oil. I have a childhood scar that we used cocoa butter on every day for months and it never made a difference. There are studies on vitamin e and scarring that it is hydrating but does not have any effect on scarring.
