Here is my guide to harvesting Aloe gel from an Aloe Vera plant. I used my healthy large Aloe Vera plant to obtain some gel from its wide leaves.
What remains is a nice strip of pure Aloe Vera gel.
Some people add an equal part on honey to the gel for preservation. Use the pure gel on burns, cuts, bites, and even sore gums.
Refrigerate the gel and try and use it within a few weeks or you can freeze the gel up to 6 months. Putting the gel into ice cube trays for quick use is also a great idea. Check out other articles on-line for more ideas and useful hints for using harvested Aloe Vera gel.
