If you have a big aloe plant, just take the inside (gel) and use about 1 tbs per pound of soap at trace. That's what I did with my last batch.Rebelshope said:How do I take my aloe plant and use the aloe from that to make something I can put in soap?
How to Juice An Aloe Leaf said:For external use, you can mix the gel and mucilage together to create your "juice". The gel can be difficult to liquify. Don't forget to store your aloe juice in the refrigerator. Use a glass or food-safe plastic container. Brown or dark green glass is best to block out excess light. Even a small amount of aloe juice can go a long way. To make it last even longer and to prevent discoloration (your juice will eventually turn brown), add a drop of vitamin E and a drop of grapefruit seed extract, or mix in some citric acid powder. Remember, however, that aloe is best when fresh.
