Many of us make the mistake of thinking that aloe vera is only beneficial for burns, but that’s not the case. Aloe vera is actually a natural antibacterial substance, so for healing piercings, it’s amazing. Plus, because it’s all natural, you don’t need to stress about any irritation occurring.
To use aloe vera to help heal your ears, invest in a plant or a tube of pure aloe vera gel - the Forever Living Aloe Vera Gelly is fantastic. Mix a small amount of fresh gel or gelly from a tube with cooled, boiled water and place in a spray bottle. Then, two to three times a day, spray your new piercing with the mixture - this will prevent infection and speed up healing.
