Cape Aloe (Aloe ferox)
Cape Aloe, also known as Bitter Aloe is a species of arborasceous aloe indigenous to southern Africa.
Bitter aloe is most famous for its medicinal qualities. In parts of South Africa, the bitter yellow juice found just below the skin has been harvested as a renewable resource for two hundred years. The hard, black, resinous product is known as Cape aloes or aloe lump and is used mainly for its laxative properties. The gel-like flesh from the inside of the leaves is used in cosmetic products and is reported to have wound-healing properties.
