Aloe vera is a hardy succulent native to Africa that's easy to grow. It thrives in poor soil and requires very little water. The gel that comes from its thick leaves is often used to cool minor burns and sunburns. Keeping an aloe plant in your kitchen is a great idea; a leaf can be quickly grabbed, split open, and placed on burnt skin to quicken healing time.

Aloe is a great plant to start out with as it doesn't require much water or attention and can be grown for years in a pot; just be sure to let the soil dry between waterings.
