Aloe Vera Gel

This makes a light and elegant gel rich with the healing abilities of aloe vera. It can be used as a base to add oils, tinctures and other active ingredients. Without oil, it can feel tight and drying on the skin.

Stage 1: (room temperature)
88% Spring Water
1% Xanthan Gum
 
Stage 2: (room temperature)
10% Aloe Vera Concentrate
1% Preservative 12


Total 100%

Method:

Sprinkle the Xanthan gum onto the surface of the water and beat briefly. Keep the whisk low so as not to introduce air. When it is the thickness you want, add the stage 2 ingredients. Combine thoroughly. Bottle and label. We have given percentages here as this is the easiest way to work. When making smaller amounts, we assume that 10% is a similar amount to 10ml of oil or 10g of butter or powders. However, when making larger amounts, they are not the same. Decide whether you want to use measuring cylinders or scales or both in your recipes. Weighing all materials gives the best accuracy.
