This is super easy to make, very inexpensive and far better for skin than the many gels available in the market. Lets see how we can make it.
Ingredients:
Aloe vera plant, Vit. C powder, Vit. E capsule, Essential oil (optional)

Preparatory Steps:
1. Collect a few stems of Aloe Vera plant. I would say one long stem of two small stems are more than sufficient

2. If you have ascorbic acid powder, well and good. If not, grind vit C tablet and make it in powder form. I didn’t get abscorbic acid here so I went ahead with vit C tablet.

3. One or two vit E capsules depending on the quantity of the gel and also depends on how much vit E you can tolerate. I have a major problem with vit E capsule’s smell , so I kept it just to one.

4. Any essential oil. This is optional. I didn’t have essential oil so I went ahead with Aroma magic beauty oil

How to make:
1. Peel out the stem and take out the gel from the stem. Collect it in a blender.

2. Collect vit C powder and add it to the blender
3. Cut vit E capsule tip and add it to the blender as well
4. If you wish, add a few drops of essential oil in the blender

5. Blend it well.
6. Pour in a cute tub or jar and store in refrigerator.
7. This would come easily for months.

Few notes:

  •  I did good research on natural preservative and came to know that vit C and vit E are good natural preservatives. I have seen it myself as my body scrub is more than a month old and works very well even though I don’t store in fridge anymore.
  •  The final product would be a little liquid/fluid in nature. It may not be in the gel form as it is available in the markets. I think the reason for this is that either they add something to it or they drain its water.
  •  If you want it to be in solid form, do this – before taking out the pulp of Aloe Vera, hang it vertically. This way its water/fluid will drain out and you will get more gel like consistency.
  •  I didn’t do the drain part as I didn’t mind a liquid gel and also because I was not sure of its properties if I drained out the water.
  •  Some of you may find it difficult to blend it. I found it so tough to make a gel from the pulp. My Morphy Richards’ blender could not break it properly in gel so I did it manually.
  • My gel is in orange color because like I said before I broke down chewable tablets and that was only for the purpose of preserving it naturally.

I hope you find it crazily easy to make and you try it out today itself!

I have been using it for more than a week and each time I apply it on my face, I fall in love with my creativity. mean How to make Aloe Vera Gel at Home

I have plenty of Aloe vera plants at home and I usually just use the gel from the plant and place it directly on skin. 
Thank you for your post, I will definitely try it
