Aloe Vera is an amazing plant widely known for its medicinal properties. This is an ancient remedy which can be used for much more than sunburn relief and household décor. Aloe Vera can relieve sunburn, purify the digestive system, and improves the skin quality. The internet has been abuzz with the uses of Aloe Vera. However, it has been recently discovered that to maximise its benefits, you should freeze it.
Why Should You Freeze Aloe Vera?
It is clear that we cannot use all of the Aloe Vera gel immediately. So, when we store it in the fridge or leave it to UV rays, wind, dust, the gel may lose effectiveness. It has been proven that Aloe Vera gel acts immediately. Hence, to conserve this plant, the best way is to freeze it.
Freezing Aloe Vera Gel
The process is quite easy. All you should do is follow these instructions:
- First, take a sharp knife and remove the outer skin of the Aloe Vera leaf.
- Then, take a spoon and remove the translucent layer (glass) and place it in a plastic container. You can use ice cube trays.
- Finish by placing it in the freezer. You can keep it for as many days as you want.
Applying Aloe Vera
You should use the frozen ice cubes of Aloe Vera gel. Simply, take the cube and apply it to the skin. Do this procedure twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. You should wash your skin with lukewarm water 30 minutes after applying the gel. By doing this, you will enjoy the following benefits:
- relieves and treats minor burns;
- relieves heartburn;
- keeps the skin hydrated;
- reduces the appearance of varicose veins;
- relieves pain and prevents wound infections;
- relieve blisters on feet, irritation or some fungus;
