Abstract: The study investigated the evaluation of various uses of Aloe barbandensis miller (L) Burm by rural dwellers in Ile-Ogbo, Ayedire Local Government, Osun State. A multistage sampling technique was employed to sample 60 respondents. Data were obtained with the aid of structured questionnaire. The data were subjected to descriptive (percentages and frequency) and inferential, chi-Square, statistics. The findings revealed that majority of the people who made use of Aloe barbandensis miller (L) Burm were female (65%) while male were (35%). Also, 35% of respondents were between ages of 30 - 39 years with majority (65%) of the respondents married while 47% of the respondents had primary school certificate. The study further shows that the awareness of Aloe was very high in the study area. The findings revealed that Aloe barbandensis miller (L) Burm is used for treating convulsion, malaria, burns, inflammation, pimple, eczema and skin rash in the agrarian community. It is therefore recommended that the plant should be planted by every household for easy accessibility. The establishment of aloe vera industries should be encouraged so that the people can benefit by supplying the raw materials which will serve as sources of income for the rural people.
