    They are both incorrect. For a start, neither starts with a capital letter. Also, it might help if you included "please" somewhere in your request. "Correct these two questions" sounds like a command.

    Here is a clue for sentence #1. In the interrogative, we can use "do" and "does". However, we use "do" with plurals and "does" with singular. Is "aloe vera" singular or plural?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Furthermore, diplomacy, you have been member long enough to know that

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word or phrase being discussed' (Posting Guidelines).

    'What natural beauty' would have been better for this.

    Kills the most people
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
