How do you use the Aloe Vera plant?
Cut a leaf as close to the root as possible and then cut it completely open. The gel can be scraped out like this and the juice drips out. It can not be more pure. A small amount of Aloe Vera juice every day is enough. The best thing to do is take it for breakfast in the morning. You can mix it with water or use it in your smoothie / juice!
