Did you know that Aloe is mentioned in the Holy Bible
in 5 different places?
How lovely are your tents, O Jacob! Your dwellings, O Israel! Like valleys that stretch out, like gardens by the riverside, like aloes planted by the LORD, like cedars beside the waters.
All Your garments are scented with myrrh and aloes and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, by which they have made You glad.
Your plants are an orchard of pomegranates with pleasant fruits, fragrant henna with spikenard, Spikenard and saffron, Calamus and cinnamon, with all trees of frankincense, myrrh and aloes, with all the chief spices-- A fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon. THE SHULAMITE

So he came and took the body of Jesus. And Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, weighing about a hundred pounds. Then they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in strips of linen with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury.
