Aloe Vera is Advantageous.


Here is how you can make your own Aloe Vera Juice from Home.


1. Select eight to ten aloe leaves, cutting them at the base of the plant where they meet the stem.

2. Wash off the cut aloe leaves in cold water, rinsing away any dirt or sticky residue.

3.Using a sharp knife, cut off the scaly thorns and open the aloe leaves.

4. Scrape the aloe vera pulp into the blender.

5. Blend the aloe pulp until it is smooth, without lumps.

We made our own Aloe Vera Juice from Home, using just a blender, aloe vera leaves, and some honey. We blended the two together, until completely smooth. The honey gives it a sweet taste, which we prefer better. We then stored it into a glass container and kept it in the fridge. We drink 2 tablespoons twice a day. This aloe vera juice is beneficial in many ways. It improves digestion, circulation, assists with weight loss and even regulates blood sugar. Aloe vera leaves can easily be found in most grocery stores. We love trying things that are good for our health, and this is one great and "natural" recipe.

Have you ever tried Aloe Vera Before?

  1. My grandma used to live with us when she was alive since we were kids and she believed in the power of herbs and plants---so she used a lot of herbs and plants for medicine, beauty care and wellness. She would add aloe vera "juice" to the coconut milk conditioner that she made herself. She would tell my mother to use aloe vera sprinkled with baking soda to be used as a bath soap ..She used aloe vera for many purposes

  3. I love Aloe Vera juice it's so refreshing and nourishing. Aloe Vera handmade soap is also excellent for rehydrating the skin, particularly if you hands are really dry like mine.
