The best way to use aloe vera gel is to know exactly where it comes from and get it directly from the source so you know that it’s 100% fresh, 100% natural and 100% full of nutrients?

There are a lot of homemade skin care products call for Aloe Vera gel, why not make your own.

I love my aloe plants; I have had them for years.  My great friend Abby shared a huge plant with me and that plant has expandedinto many many plants I have shared with many many people!  That is the true beauty of the aloe plant.  It is incredibly medicinal along with being prolific!How To Make Homemade Aloe Vera Gel

  • ¼ cup fresh aloe
  • 1/8 teaspoon citric acid (in the canning section)
  • ¼ teaspoon vitamin E oil
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Remove the goodness from the aloe leaves.  The easiest way I have found to do this is by splitting the leave from the top to the bottom only piercing one layer of skin.  Use a spoon to scrape the gooiness from the plant.   I have noticed when the plant sits for a minute after you have extracted the center some additional juice will pool; it is hard to waste anything so wonderful!

In a blender add all the ingredients.  Blend till all the chunks of aloe are gone.

The citric acid and the vitamin E act as preservatives, therefore the citric acid is optional.

Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator for at least a month.

This gel is wonderful for burns.  It can be used as is or it can be used in other recipes that call for Aloe Vera Gel.
