Make your own Aloe Vera Gel
Lay the leaf on a cutting board and slice it in half lengthwise.
Use a spoon to scoop out the mucilage gel from the plant. Mucilage gel is a clear material with the consistency of jelly found within aloe vera plants.
Crush one vitamin C tablet.
Mix the vitamin C with the gel. This preserves the gel. I use a fork and really mix it up breaking any clumps.
Place the gel in a glass or plastic container and cover if not using right away
