Does anyone here use the aloe plant itself..... where you break a piece and apply the gel. What are some good uses for it? Do you think it's better than the bottled aloe, or the same?

Yes, we use it for sunburn. It seems very soothing and lasts for a while without having the other additives of the bottled variety that can sting, such as alcohol, and the hunk you break off eventually grows back.

Can you bring the plant indoors in the winter? I would like to use natural aloe as a moisturizer.

Aloe is a house plant in most parts of the U.S. A sunny windowsill is all you need.

And you can read articles on Omega 7, so why did you decide to ask questions about it on a message board? Its the same reason the OP probably asked about aloe, she wanted to know people's honest opinion.

I'm also interested in people's opinion. Yeah, I've read stuff about aloe plants elsewhere online, but I'd like to hear some others actual experience with it. I bought an aloe plant a few months ago, but its not really wanting to grow. I'm starting to wonder if the effort I'm putting into trying to get this plant to grow is worth it, or should I just stick with the green gel I can get at the store.

This ^^^^^.

Sure, I can Google with the best of them talloolla. But sometimes you want to go beyond an article and find out people's actual experiences and possibly ask a few follow-up questions, etc..... like Sundaydrive00 said.

Anyone found a place where they sell just the AV leaves?
