How To Make make your own aloe vera gel

    Cut off an aloe vera leaf. 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

    NOTE: Some people and pets are allergic to aloe vera so test first on the inside of your elbow at the crease. leave on 24 hours before using to make sure you are not allergic. It sent my mother to the hospital.
