Aloe vera gel has an anti-cancer and anti-inflammation properties. Aloe vera gel also contributes to the lowering of high cholesterol, accelerating wound healing, stimulation of oxygen in the blood and many other advantages. Aloe vera gel is best used in combination with other drug substances in a smoothie recipe. We will show how the aloe vera gel can be harvested using images and text.

Step 1

Start by cutting a large aloe vera leaf from a living plant (be sure the plant is not too much! We can be thankful for nourishing aloe vera gel, as we may be grateful to nature for all food and natural medicine which they make available.

Choose a large aloe vera leaf green and thick. The thicker the leaves, the better: the more gel you get. A healthy aloe vera leaf is about the size of your forearm. It is personally advised by the expert nutritionists of Okyalo, that the  Treat the aloe vera plant with respect, and be careful. Take only a little of the plant, leaving enough of the plant on to survive and even thrive. Never destroy an aloe vera plant by harvest all the leaves, unless you plan to replant.

After cutting the leaves, keep it in first upside. Let drain the dark resin sheet upside down. The gel remains in the leaves, so do not worry about losing gel. The dark red resin may cause diarrhea, but the gel is soothing to the entire digestive tract and is well known even to aid in heartburn, IBS, Crohn’s disease, constipation and many other digestive problems.

Note the thick gel in the aloe vera leaf in the picture: this is the kind of gel which we are looking for. (This is derived from a plant in my backyard.) The technique that we are going to learn is to use a knife to remove the thick skin and resin of the aloe vera leaf, leaving only the gel.

Here I cut a piece of paper to show the transparency of the aloe vera gel. Aloe vera gel is 96% water. The water is trapped in a complex system of essential sugars (glyconutrients), such as mannose, which consists of more than 200 phytonutrients. It is these glyconutrients we are interested: this is where the benefits of aloe vera gel come from.

In this picture right here, you see not only the aloe vera gel and skin, but also the resin cores (dark red spots). These conductors represent the circulation of the aloe plant. The gel gives the water-storage system.

All aloe vera plants are antibacterial and self-healing. If you cut a plant open, the wound will HEALER within hours. The aloe vera gel drink kills all bacteria that try to invade the leaf. These antibacterial properties are also beneficial for people who have  aloe vera gel. Aloe vera has anti-bacterial, antiviral and antifungal effects.

To get the Aloa-vera gel from the leaf, begin by placing the aloe vera leaf on a chopping board.Use a sharp knife with a little flexibility. Harvesting aloe vera gel cutting board also provides a layer of antibacterial gel!



After a long journey with her husband and kids (lucky me), I’m back at my computer. I could not quite let go of my work on vacation. Because whether it’s somewhere in the jungles of Indonesia, the outback of Australia or a remote island in the Pacific; Nothing’s better than locals to steal what spreads and plants they use to care for their skin. Just like Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I come home with piles of information, but unfortunately I’ve unlike Willy Wonka the “miracle cure” still not found! My kids did this have they found. After one of the locals had been our children how to use the juice from the leaves of Aloe Vera on a wound, no plant was safe! If Aloe Vera suddenly became an endangered plant species I do hear of anything.

Although we did not see on the side of the road in the Netherlands Aloe Vera, we see it often back on the shelves of drugstore and perfumery. And of course the most wonderful promises on the packaging. But is Aloe Vera really have such a magical plant?

It is widely used in cosmetics: for example after sun products you can find this ingredient regularly. The part which is used for cosmetic products coming from inside the Aloe Vera leaf, this slimy tissue called Aloe Vera gel. with Aloe vera-gel-drink.

What does it do?

Aloe Vera is already very long known for its medicinal and healing properties. There are more than 400 species which have only some healing qualities. Aloe Barbadensis Miller is considered to be one of the most effective types and has also been studied the best. This species is also used in cosmetics.

Alicante – the City of Colors

There is only one word that can truly describe Alicante: completely underrated. All right, it’s two words. But this is not the point here. The main point is that when I visited Alicante, I didn’t have high hopes about the city. Although it is quite close to Valencia, the city where I currently live, I wasn’t very keen on visiting it. Boy, how wrong was I.

Where is it?

Due to its size, you might not have heard about Alicante before. Let me tell you where it is: it’s located South of Valencia, at around 182 km by highway. The access to and from Alicante is very simple either it is by car, bus or plane.
