When did we start using aloe Vera for sunburns?

    Aloe Vera has been used as folk medicine for skin irritations (and other purposes) for centuries. One of the earliest known writings to mention Aloe Vera was a Sumerian clay tablet, created in the city of Nippur around 2200 BC. However, the expansion of Aloe Vera to include burn treatment is attributed to Dioscrodies, a Roman pharmocoligist, in 50 AD. He cited many uses for the plant, including skin irritations and burns.

    Egyptians are the first supposed people to use the healing effects of aloe vera over 4000 years ago, and the earliest record of it’s use is a Sumerian writing tabled dated at 2100 B.C. It was popular among Egyptian queens, notably Cleopatra, as it was a topical beauty product of the time.

    Greek and Roman doctors came to use it to heal patients as well. It was generally scoffed at by scientists of western cultures for being a folk medicine, but after World War II it’s popularity grew, as it could offset symptoms of eczema and asthma, as well as boost the immune system.
