Extracting Aloe Vera. Hair, Body & Feet Care.
I have a aloe vera plant which needed some TLC.
I pruned a lot from the plant which was sad.
But I knew I could make meny different things with this plant, skin care, Hair care, feet care. So much to choose from.
All of them 😂 why not.
Below is my aloe vera stems.
there is more just not in the picture
When you cut your aloe stems let them sit in water for 15mins
You will need
1- Chopping board
2- sharp knife
4- metel mixing bowl
5- aloe vera stems
I start by using a knife
Snipping the ends of, making a slit down each side
I write this now!
As I use a easy way further below.
Slipping the knife down the frount very thinly
Next scrape the aloe extract with a spoon
Start at the top of the stem and scrape the spoon
To the very bottom
It should look like below.
It can become messy.
So HERE is my easy way.
Snip the top and bottom off
Gently start from the top of the stem and gently push in a downwards motion, you will feel the gel moving
It will run out the bottom leaveing the stem in one piece. much easier!
Much faster and still in one bit less messy.😂💯
Below my aloe extract.
Looking good. Feeling like slug gunk Haha
I will use this for my face.
I place in airtight container it will last two weeks.
It as sooo meny purposes.
Below I will chop up some aloe in strips
So I can place them under my eyes once cool.
They are fantastic to use for puffiness around the eyes.
So thease will be my eye care
Once there chopped to a nice sizes to suit the area around your eye.
Put into a airtight container.
That's the extract made and
Eye strips, I will call them 😂😂
Below the aloe is strong and I don't waste anything.
I grew this, it's organic and I will use it all as they would back in olden days.
So I chop ( dice) it all up
Couldn't waste that. 🤩
Put it into a airtight container
You have full aloe extract.
You could use this for feet
Aloe vera eye strips for swollen under eyes
Or to just brighten the eyes up it's great
Aloe extract from the plant
face hair body take your pick how you want to use this.
I will use it as a face mask
Put them into the fridge
Let them cool
Getting all the extra cooling benefits
Plus it will last longer.
Feet hair and face.
Ain't aloe vera fantastic.
I do like to harvest my aloe vera plant it gives me lots of natural beauty treatments.
Extracting aloe vera can be fun & messy.
But it's very worthwhile for our skin
