How to Make Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe vera gel is a natural moisturizer with a lot of health benefits: it’s good for sunburns, bug bites, minor cuts, and wounds. 5-Minute Crafts will show you the steps you need to take to create your own gel, from cutting the leaf to the final product.
- An aloe vera leaf
- A knife or vegetable peeler
- A small spoon
- A cup
- A blender
- A glass container
- Powdered vitamin C and/or vitamin E
Cut the leaf from the aloe vera plant. Remember, you can buy one that’s already cut.
Wash the leaf and remove any dirt.
Drain the leaf’s resin for 10 minutes to 15 minutes by standing it upright inside a cup.
Peel off the skin of one side of the leaf by using a vegetable peeler or knife. Cut through the inner white layer to get to the gel underneath. If the leaf is too long, you can cut it into small pieces.
Put the natural gel inside a blender and blend it until it’s frothy and liquefied. This only takes a few seconds.
Put the gel inside a container and store it in the fridge. It should last for around 2 months thanks to the added vitamin C and vitamin E.
