Best Indoor Hanging Plant #1. Aloe Vera.

Why spend big bucks on aloe lotions claiming to soothe minor burns and cuts when you can have the real thing?

Just break off one of the leaves at the base and rub the gel on your skin. You can even make your own, organic face and hair masks, hand sanitizers, and shampoo using your very own aloe vera plant.

Care: Aloe plants are succulents. That means they retain water and only need to be watered every couple of weeks. Hang your aloe in a bright spot and take advantage of its medicinal properties.

Tip: Architectural Digest suggests watering directly into the soil and making sure the plant has good drainage.

If you are really adventurous: You can also grow Aloe Vera without the soil and water inside your house. Just tie a sash or ribbon to the base of the roots, and hang upside down in a cozy, cool, drafted space. Make sure to spray the roots every so often.
