Hi, I need some "Aloe Arborenscens" leaves, and the only way I can have them is buying them online. The seller says I'd get them within 1-3 days wrapped in plastic. I want them for "medicinal purpose"...my question is: Is it a good idea to buy "cut" aloe arborenscens leaves online? Won't they get "damage" or lose medicinal "properties" during the shipping process? I'd really appreciate your response. Thanks!

Aloe leaves store very well. They will not lose anything except moisture. This will actually concentrate the chemicals within the plant. It would not hurt to buy cut leaves.
