I'd like to try using aloe vera juice as my lye water and I have a few questions for those of you that have used it. The container says it's 99.8% aloe and the ingredient list says "Organic Aloe Vera Gel, Citric Acid and Sodium Benzoate." Since the citric acid and sodium benzoate are 0.2% of the total, should I be concerned about the citric acid using more lye? Also, is the sodium benzoate going to cause any trouble? Do you dissolve your lye in water 1:1 then add the remaining in aloe juice or use the juice as 100% of the water component? TIA!!!
