Aloe vera plants in Kashmir



Aloe vera
Aloe vera is a succulent plant species of the genus Aloe. An evergreen perennial, it originates from the Arabian Peninsula but grows wild in tropical climates around the world and is cultivated for agricultural and medicinal uses.

Aloe vera is not very hardy, so you shouldn't grow it outdoors where nighttime temperatures can dip below 50 F. However, in unusual weather, you can sometimes avoid freeze damage by covering the plant with a cotton sheet; an optional light bulbcan also be placed underneath, not touching the plant or the sheet.

The benefits of Aloe Vera are almost endless, a real must have plant in your garden. But the plant is only hardy to zones 8–11 and loves well drained soil. Not a good fit for a cold climate, to say the least. Still, we too can grow Aloe Vera indoors and in a greenhouse.

Aloe Vera goes dormant during the winter, so growth slows and water needs decrease. ... Root rot and cold shock are very common problems in the winter. Healthy Aloe Vera plants have firm, gel-filled leaves. An Aloe suffering from root rot or cold shock has softened, drooping leaves.

Pricing : 750 per plant (2019)
Availability : 5000 plant

Sage herb

Salvia officinalisSage is one of the oldest medicinal plants being used since ancient Egypt.
Sage plant
By then it was used to stop bleeding wounds and for disinfection, also having curative properties in gastric diseases.
An old proverb says “who has sage in the garden does not need a doctor”, and reality perfectly reflects this sayings. In the garden it chase away insects that attack carrots, cabbage, strawberries, tomatoes and marjoram.
Dried sage leaves placed in the closet banish insects from the house. Sage essential oil is used in cosmetics, and the leaves are used successfully both in phytotherapy and gastronomy.
Sage can do wonders for the beauty chapter, especially for our hair. For example, in order to maintain the natural color and shine of your hair, after washing it with regular shampoo, do the final rinse with this decoction prepared as follows: put 3-4 tablespoons of crushed soaked sage in half a liter of water, let it sit for 8-10 hours then filter the liquid.
The resulting preparation is put aside and the plant left after filtration is boiled in half liter of water for five minutes, then leave to cool and filtered. Finally mix the two extracts, yielding approximately one liter of preparation that is used internally (1-2 cups per day) or externally as compresses and baths.
For black hair, a decoction prepared in the same way is recommended, but in a mixture of equal parts of black tea and sage. Sage is also good for gray hair care because it strengthens and restores its color.
Also, your teeth will become whiter and brighter if you rub them with sage leaves. Rinsing your mouth with tea sage will ensure an efficient cleaning of the oral cavity and, in addition, a fresh breath.

Herbal Teas

Herbal Teas

From green tea to hibiscus, from white tea to chamomile, teas are chock full of flavonoids and other healthy goodies.

Regarded for thousands of years in the East as a key to good health, happiness, and wisdom, tea has caught the attention of researchers in the West, who are discovering the many health benefits of different types of teas.

Studies have found that some teas may help with cancer, heart disease, and diabetes; encourage weight loss; lower cholesterol; and bring about mental alertness. Tea also appears to have antimicrobial qualities.

“There doesn’t seem to be a downside to tea,” says American Dietetic Association spokeswoman Katherine Tallmadge, MA, RD, LD. “I think it’s a great alternative to coffee drinking. First, tea has less caffeine. It’s pretty well established that the compounds in tea – their flavonoids – are good for the heart and may reduce cancer.”
