Fiona said: “The Aloe Plant contains 75 vitamins, minerals, sugars, enzymes and essential amino acids that are great for humans as drinking gels, supplements, skincare and personal care products. Once Aloe Vera plant products have been tried, many of my customers go on to use them as part of their daily routine as the benefits speak for themselves.
“Although there are records of it being used throughout history, it is only within the last few decades that the full extent of the aloe plant’s properties have been recognised. Popularity has increased over the years with many big brands beginning to include it as an addition to their moisturisers and shampoos. I already use Aloe Vera on my pets, and was fully aware of the benefits when I met with Heike Kopac from a Peels Veterinary surgery in Beverley and Hornsea in East Yorkshire.”
Heike Kopac from Peels Veterinary Surgery in East Yorkshire uses alternative therapies like homeopathy and acupuncture and uses Aloe Vera products in her surgery and for herself and her family.
She said: “I absolutely believe in the power and benefits of Aloe Vera for animals. For some time I have used the Aloe Vera Gelly. I always have a tube on-hand for my animal patients.”
“I also use the Bee Pollen tablets for myself and my children. When the pollen count is high, I am prepared to try anything and Fiona recently recommended I try the lip balm under my nose and eyes. This has made long walks out in the countryside with my dogs much more enjoyable during the warm summer months.”
The Aloe Company provides a specially blended product which is cold stabilised within an hour of harvesting to maintain all of the nutrients and goodness of the plant thus guaranteeing the quality. Having researched the product thoroughly Fiona Ives is an expert in its uses.
She explained: “I apply Aloe to my dog’s skin on a regular basis and both my dog and cat consume a small amount of the gel as it is full of vital nutrients. Having researched the benefits of the plant, I have found documented evidence of it helping animals from goats to lizards and birds. The benefits of Aloe Vera are truly amazing, it’s so much more than your average house plant.”
