How to Correctly Make and Preserve Your Own Aloe Vera Gel

How to Correctly Make and Preserve Your Own Aloe Vera Gel

All welcome

Aloe Vera has been used in cosmetics for as long as we can remember. It is one of those timeless cosmetic ingredients popularity of which does not seem to wane. Used for burns and itchy skin conditions, helpful for acne and psoriasis, the applications for Aloe Vera gel seem endless.


There are many Aloe Vera gels available on the market but sadly, just one look at the list of ingredients will make many of us shudder… carbomers, synthetic colours, harsh preservatives and more, can all be found in what could be a very simple product. No wonder that so many try to make their own!


There are endless DIY recipes on-line but how do we know what is a ‘good’ recipe and what is simply ‘wrong’? Worryingly, the World Wide Web is full of incorrect/misleading/confused information, so let’s learn how to make (and preserve) your very own, pure and natural, Aloe Vera Gel!
