    Hi
    Could anyone tell me if this plant is an Aloe Vera, and if it can be used on the skin.
    There is a gel in the leaves but it’s not very thick.
    thanks

    Good morning and welcome to the forum, this is Aloe arborescens or candelabra aloe. I have no evidence re the gel for medicinal use, so would advise looking it up online or contacting a health care professional.
    Hope this is of a little help.
