Aloe Lotion (Definition)

Aloe gel, made from the central part of the aloe leaf, is a common household remedy for minor cuts and burns, as well as sunburns. It can be found in many commercial skin lotions and cosmetics. Aloe contains active compounds that may decrease pain and inflammation and stimulate skin growth and repair. For this reason, aloe vera gel has gained tremendous popularity for relief of burns, with individual success in helping minor burns. In one study, burn sites treated with aloe healed completely in less than 16 days compared to 19 days for sites treated with silver sulfadiazine. In a review of the scientific literature, researchers found that patients who were treated with aloe vera healed an average of almost 9 days sooner than those who weren't treated with the medicinal plant. However, other studies show mixed results, including at least one study that found aloe actually delayed healing. Aloe is best used for minor burns and skin irritations, and should never be applied ...Read more

Peppermint oil for IBS- constipation? contraindicated with one of the following drugs ? Xanax, Seroquel, escitalopram, Lamotrigine? Same Question Aloe Vera juice...

I would avoid: the Peppermint oil. It may decrease how quickly the liver breaks down medications causing an increase in the effects and side effects of such medications. Two of the medicines you take--Xanax and escitalopram--are metabolized by the liver/cytochromne P450 and could be affected by Peppermint oil. Aloe Vera juice may be a little safer but it also affects the cytochrome P450 pathways. I would avoid. ...Read more
