Aloe Vera ("real" aloe) is a medicinal plant that has been used for centuries. The first scientific description as "Aloe perfoliata var. Vera" was made in 1753 by Carl von Linné. The plant is grown in subtropical and tropical regions, increasingly also in the Mediterranean, India, Mexico and the Canary Islands.
