Post Anyone use real aloe plant gel?

I just got a plant but its hard to get all the gel out, at the rate I use it the plant will be gone in a few weeks.

Whats the best way to apply real aloe gel from the plant?

i had an aloe plant until my dog turned it into a salad, and what i used to do was snip off a little piece and just rub the cut end over the wound or zit that i wanted to heal. Worked great.

Aloe plant gel made my pores very big, so be careful.

yes iv e used aloe vera plant gel fromt he plant. its easy you cut off a small portion of theleaf every time you want to use some, scape out the inner portion in the amount you need and refrigerate the rest of the piece for the next few days will keep at least three-make sure you wrap it though. Aloe grows fast if you take care of it and it is very cheap to buy-I got a pretty big one for three dollars so I think the cost is worth it ......just be frugal and dont cut more than you need for a week at a time. Its nice to know that it has no perservatives and you are getting the real thing.
