My mother had a plethora of houseplants. They held no interest for me when I was growing up. I much preferred climbing the mountains with Aunt Bett, gathering wildflowers and herbs and learning of the magic they held. To a little tomboy, houseplants were nothing but boring, except for the one that I was told to never touch, Aloe vera.

Not that you're likely to get sunburned up there...
But for when you glue yourself to some object and then peel your hand away and your 1st layer of skin remains with the glue, well, then you might need aloe to soothe the skinless part.
