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
  • Scissors
  • A blender
  • A glass container
  • Powdered vitamin C and/or vitamin E

Step 1

Cut the leaf from the aloe vera plant. Remember, you can buy one that’s already cut.

Step 2

Wash the leaf and remove any dirt.

Step 3

Drain the leaf’s resin for 10 minutes to 15 minutes by standing it upright inside a cup.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

Take the natural aloe vera gel out using a knife or small spoon.

Step 6

Put the natural gel inside a blender and blend it until it’s frothy and liquefied. This only takes a few seconds.

Step 7

Add 500 IU powdered vitamin C and vitamin E to serve as natural preservatives to extend the gel’s life. You can add the powder directly to the blender.

Step 8

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.
