The Sanskrit name of Aloe vera is 'Ghrit Kumari'. In Bengal, it is well-known to the Ayurvedic doctors as 'Ghrit Kumari'. However. In Hindi, it is called 'Gwar Patha'.

Aloe vera is used for treatment of diabetes, treatment of various skin problems, treatment of heart problems, etc. Although this plant is originally from Rajasthan, now it is grown everywhere because of its medicinal properties. In my residential block, in every accommodation I can notice Aloe vera plant except our own.

Although Aloe vera consumption is good for health, I have not seen it to be used as salad.
