Friction Burn on my Elbow! Eeek!

A few days ago I got a friction burn on my elbow. I was doing water sports at the time and didn't notice the abrasion until after I got out of the water. Then it started stinging! My pain threshold is high, but I just don't want it to scar!
A friend of mine, Brenda is a distributor of Forever products here and she recommended the Aloe Propolis Creme for my wound.  The cream has Propolis combined with Aloe Vera which is anti-inflammatory and epitheleal (meaning it pushes the propolis right down through all 7 layers of skin to the source of the infection). Propolis is a natural agent used by bees to maintain the health of the hive. Combining aloe and propolis makes this a fabulous product that not only heals but moisturises while it works.

The smell of this creme is pleasant, and it feels very soothing. Great for cuts and bruises so it's very handy to have at home, as part of a first aid kit.
It started to form a thick scab, but beneath it was still inflamed, sore and red. Here's a pic of my elbow at day 3, which was also the first day I used the Aloe Propolis Creme. I will use it twice a day and update you on the results. 
Now, I also have the Aloe Vera Gelly as part of my first aid kit. This aloe gel is stabilized Aloe Vera gel which has not lost any of it's powerful nutrients during the extraction process. Aloe gel is epitheleal, it sinks down through all 7 layers of your skin if you apply it topically.
The Aloe Gelly can be used for gum infection or ulcers or on teething babies. Just rub some directly onto the gums. It doesn't smell or taste bad because they are all natural ingredients. Both the Aloe Propolis Creme and the Aloe Vera Gelly is great for rashes and skin conditions like Eczema. 
Forever has a Bee Propolis tablet too. It has its own beehives, away from contamination and pollution. 

I just take two when feeling low energy levels. It is an instant pick-me-up. And even has anti-aging properties. It is 100% natural. The only gripe I have about it is that it is bitter. But I have very low threshold for bitterness, I don't even like coffee because it's too bitter for me! 

Bees line their hives with Propolis, making them more sterile than any operting theatre. Propolis is nature's natural antibiotic. They compress it into pills to take as an antibiotic, and into creams which are wonderful for skin conditions. 

All the products are organic, have the Aloe Science Council Seal of Approval, the Kosher Seal of Approval and the Islamic Seal of Approval. :)
