Aloe vera recipes for skin. How to prepare aloe vera gel from fresh leaves:
1-Choose aloe vera leaves that are large and mature, but still soft and succulent with plenty of moisture and gel inside. Avoid the small leaves as they will not contain enough gel.
2-Cut the leave from the base of the plant and let the yellow sap (called aloin) runs out of the leaves for a few minutes on a towel.
3-When the yellow sap is all gone Take a sharp knife and use it to remove the spiky edges from the leaves.
4-The leaves will have spiky edges to protect the plants from animals that also like the sweet gel inside the leaves.
5-Once the thorns have been removed, use the paring knife to peel one side of the leaf, so that you will have access to the gel.
6-Use a tea spoon to transfer the gel to a sterilized can.
7-Add a few drops of grapefruit extract to help with preservation.
