I found a great tutorial for how to make your own aloe vera gel. It’s easy.

This succulent plant with the weird, slimy gel insides is a treasure of nature – and the more I study it, the more uses I find for it. According to research, aloe vera can be very good for the skin. This is fairly common knowledge. Specifically, it’s perfect for first degree burns and some swear by it as a “miracle cure”. A 2007 review has also mentioned that it can also heal herpes and psoriasis. It’s also considered excellent for stomach ulcers.

For beauty products, it’s a commonly used ingredient for mositurizers, soaps, lotions and shampoos. This reminds me of another way to make soaps . Other uses for extracts of aloe vera include as a fresh food preservative, or for water conservation in small farms.



With so many benefits, a lot of people have tried to use aloe vera in herbal medicine. There’s one problem though – how to keep the aloe vera gel fresh for a long time. Here’s the good news – it is possible to make some DIY aloe vera gel. With this, you can enjoy the many benefits of aloe vera and there’s a guarantee of using it for a long time.

You don’t need a lot of other ingredients for this gel. You just have to prepare it with some grapefruit seed extract, vitamin C and E or some essential oil – which act as preservatives.

Here’s some things I want to mention too: you can consider this DIY aloe vera gel as a part of your beauty kit – it’s perfect for skin pampering as well as for healing minor skin irritations and insect bites. You can also add some creativity with the essential oils – and give it away as part of an eco-friendly loot to your good friends. I am pretty sure they will appreciate the effort and thoughtfulness. Go explore the many fun options!

    I love aloe vera gel! I tend to put some grapefruit seed extract in it, but it still doesn’t last forever and it needs to stay in the fridge.
