In the plant kingdom there is one superhero. A hero so legendary that its powers reach far back into African ancestry. A hero with so much magic that it can heal the sick; soothe the burnt, disinfect the compromised, deflame the bitten, rejuvenate the weary and ease the wounded. A therapeutic warrior that protects South African tribes and was absorbed as a symbol of wellness on the cave walls that formed the rock records of the Khoi and San.

A hero who nurses Zulu cattle, washes the Pondo people and detoxifies the Xhosa culture. A respected ally of medicine men from a time when medicine was generated from the earth and prescribed by the wise. A hero that flourishes in nature's hardest conditions and stands proud on a strong spine 3 metres high under the the African sun. A hero that is indigenous to South African soil and curative to global symptoms. A hero that wears red rosettes in place of a red cape and is known in powerful circles as A. Ferox; Aloe Ferox. House of Aloes reveals the secrets of this fleshy flower that is recognised as an endangered plant.

Buy a seedling plant to take home and nurture or nurture yourself with a stroll amidst the garden of 17 Aloe species. Explore the factory where the Aloe Ferox's yellow bitter sap is used as a digestive aid and its white gel is used for nutrition and longevity. Pamper yourself with a cosmetic treatment at the salon; watch a traditional healing demonstration and leave through the Garden Route a little younger and a little wiser.
