    Question

    This plant resembles an aloe so for that reason is it the leaf gel that is the part of the plant used and can this plant be taken internally?

      Many people experience adverse effects to oral consumption of lily relatives. I always hesitate to recommend eating aloes or aloe-like plants due to the possibility of allergenic response. Bulbine is safe for external application unless the subject has specific allergies to the Asphodelacea, which can be determined by test-patching prior to wholesale usage. richo
