THIS IS A ACTUAL ALOE VERA PLANT *NOT GEL*
How To Use
Lay the leaf on a cutting board and slice away both ends, so that you can see the gel sandwiched between the layers of tough skin.
Trim off the spiny edges of the leaf, too.
You should be left with a layer of thick gel trapped between the two sides of skin.
Hold the leaf in place with one hand on the top layer of skin as you carefully slide a sharp knife between the top layer of skin and the gel beneath, separating the two. Set the aloe skin aside.
Flip the aloe gel over and slide a knife between the gel and the other piece of skin to separate the two.
If this feels awkward, place the aloe skin-side down and, with a firm grip on the skin, slide your knife between the skin and gel from this orientation. Set this piece of skin aside, too. You should be left with a clear, nearly translucent piece of aloe gel.
Blend the aloe gel as part of a smoothie, or gently rub the moist inside of the aloe skin on sunburn or other mild skin irritations to moisture and soothe. This reduces waste because it makes use of the gel that remained inside the leaf skin, but you can also apply the pure gel fillet you extracted to your skin as well. If you use the aloe topically it may feel slimy, don't wipe or rinse the residue away. Instead, let it soak into your skin.
