How to make Aloe Vera gel at home

Making aloe vera gel at home is super easy, very inexpensive and far better for skin than the many gels available in the market. 
Steps to prepare  Aloe Vera gel: 

  • First wash your hands and then cut off some leaves from the aloe vera plant. Then leave the leaves in upright position for a few minutes to let the darker resin drain out. 
  • After the resin has drained, wash the leaves and start peeling off the thick skin with a knife, leaving you with the transparent gel. 
  • Place the gel into a blender and also add a few drops of either grapefruit seed extract, vitamin C powder, vitamin E oil or some essential oil to help preserve the gel for longer period.
  • Then blend everything, pour into a clean glass jar and you've got some fresh aloe vera gel which can be kept for several months in the refrigerator.
