Historical Information
An aloe vera plant has been a windowsill plant in the kitchen for centuries. A leaf would be broken off and the fillet of gel squeezed out and applied to burns and other injuries.
However, this cannot be used with the cosmetic formulations that we make, as the gel goes runny very quickly, discolours the product to a very dark shade and encourages bacterial growth.
 
Using the fresh leaf is suitable for home first aid use only.
