Aloe Harvest

Harvesting my aloe… halfway there.
Have some in refrigerator in baggies,
to use over the next 2 weeks.
Will be freezing some for later.
Will be preserving some with Vitamin C and E.
Will be making some mouthwash…
and I eat some…

I hope you join me on my journey, as I recount many things from my past,     and explore the many other creative possibilities in my future. – OmaEagle

  1. The aloe juice I preserved by blending it with vitamin C crystals,
    then added drops of tea tree oil.
    Later I made Coconut cream lotion. I used coconut oil, and slowly blended the aloe juice to the consistency I wanted.
    Stay tuned – I have to get back to you on the grams and measures in a later post. 🙂
