  1. I have only heard of calendula and aloe vera. I might have heard of the other plants but don’t know their english names. And I love herbs. Aloe vera for example is my life saviour. I have had acne all my life and I am totally into natural products. I don’t use any chemical on my face these days. Though these herbs work slow but I am saved of the tremendous side effects I was having from my acne treatment.
