How To Extract Aloe Vera Gel
To use Aloe Vera internally, simply extract the gel and prepare a delicious smoothie.
Start off by cutting the sides and the tip. Make sure the upper cut isn’t wider than your finger, as the gel will pour out immediately.
Once done, take a thin knife and remove the inner layer slowly. Cut the middle and using a regular spoon, scrap the gel and pour it somewhere aside in a container for a later use.
But don’t throw away the peels just yet. They have been known for giving the skin an incredible natural retreat. Use them to prepare a homemade aromatic face mask.
Once you’re done, pour the thin layer of pure Aloe Vera gel in your blender and blend it along you’re your favorite fruits and veggies, or if you like it plain and simple add some water. If you want to prepare an excellent detoxification drink, it is recommended that you mix the gel with some lemon and honey.
