 Here is how you should harvest Fresh Aloe Vera gel.

  • Use a sharp knife to cut the leaf from plant. make sure you cut close to the stem
  • Trim out the sharp cactus kind of edges using the knife
  • Now on a cutting board cut the leaf into large cubes
  • Remove green skin part from top and bottom using the knife to reveal clear pure aloe vera gel .
  • This gel can be blended in a blender for ease of use and transfer to a container.
Make sure you immediately refrigerate the blended gel to get maximum benefits out of it. This gel if refrigerated can be used for 3-4 days but I recommend harvesting fresh gel as and when required and discarding the leftovers .

If you are not the DIY kind  or do not have access to an aloe vera plant then you can turn to store brought aloe vera gel  or aloe vera based products. Most Aloe vera gels I have used have a green tint to it which means they are definitely not 100% pure because pure fresh aloe vera gel which is extracted from plant is transperent and colourless so I recommend you definitely consider getting an Aloe vera pot for your home.
