Growing up, we had an aloe plant outside for our sunburns which was the coolest thing to me. Something that comes from the ground works like something mom brings home from the store. As I grew older, I started to notice that people were using all sorts of natural remedies that actually worked. Now more beauty products are starting to use natural ingredients because of this environmental and health-conscious society, one natural ingredient that is benefitting us all being ginger.
