Instructions On How To Properly Use Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is well-known by its almost unlimited health properties. In places such as Spain, Aloe Vera is almost as common as weed, and people there certainly know how to take advantage of it.
You can use its leaves and gel to treat a large number of health issues and skin conditions efficiently. Since it is a natural product, Aloe Vera has potent properties which work far more efficiently than conventional chemical-packed products.
Aloe Vera leaves can be used in a tea form, or simply extract the gel from its leaves and drink it as a smoothie or apply it externally on the affected area.
Simply take an Aloe Vera leaf, cut it in half and use the gel to treat wounds, cuts or burns.
Aloe Vera can provide the following benefits:
- Take an Aloe Vera leaf and cut it in half, and then use it to run burns, wounds, or cuts right after they’re created.
- Apply it on sunburns as it will relieve the pain
- Apply it on your skin, as it helps rejuvenate it and it accelerates cell growth (Aloe Vera is definitely the best natural moisturizer out there!)
- It comes with plenty antioxidant and anti-fungal properties, which means you can use it to treat mouth candidiadis)
- It contains all possible Vitamins (B12 in particular!), which means it can substitute your meat supply
- It is rich with minerals (magenisum, calcium, potassium, iron, cooper, chromium, manganese, zinc, and many other immunity boosters you could obtain with a single glass of Aloe Vera juice per day!)
- It helps cure allergies, skin inflammations and states like psoriasis and eczema, insect bites, acne, blisters, and many more
- Diabetics find it extremely useful for balancing sugar levers
- It relives heart burn and helps you relax
- It improves the welfare of your teeth and gums
- Works good for all types of illnesses, including flu and colds
Topically, you can use by simply cutting the leaves in half, and rubbing them gently on the desired place. The very same gel they release can be consumed internally, so why not preparing a delicious smoothie with it?
How To Extract Aloe Vera Gel
To use Aloe Vera internally, simply extract the gel and prepare a delicious smoothie.
Cut both the sides and tip, but make sure the upper cut is not wider than your finger to stop the gel from flowing out immediately.
Once done, take a thin knife and remove the inner layer slowly. Cut the middle and using a regular spoon, scrap the gel and pour it somewhere aside in a container for a later use.
The next step is the trickiest one, which is why you might consider replacing the mandolin with an even thinner vegetable peeler. You can also scrap the gel with a regular spoon, but try to avoid creating a mess and leaving the best part of your Aloe Vera leaf behind. Ideally, cut the middle with a mandolin, and do the sides with the peeler or the knife.
There is no reason to throw away the peels – they can give your skin some excellent, purely natural retreat. In fact, you can prepare your own aromatic and fresh face mask.
Once you’re done, pour the thin layer of pure Aloe Vera gel in your blender and blend it along you’re your favorite fruits and veggies, or if you like it plain and simple add some water. If you want to prepare an excellent detoxification drink, it is recommended that you mix the gel with some lemon and honey.
