Aloe vera is a succulent plant that has long been used for medicinal purposes, primarily as a topical for burns, wounds and other skin conditions, according to several experts.
The fresh leaf is the best source of pure aloe vera gel to use on the skin. Since industries that include aloe vera as an ingredient use preservatives or other procedures to keep the aloe vera gel fresh.
But aloe vera itself can be kept at home and used whenever the occasion requires.

Instructions to follow to freeze aloe vera
Freeze the leaves: Cut a fresh aloe vera leaf and, with the help of a knife, peel it very delicately so that you can extract all the aloe vera crystal. Once you have removed all the pulp, place it in ziplock Zinploc bags and store it in the freezer. In this way the aloe vera will remain frozen for an indefinite time.
Note : it should not be heated to defrost. Instead, let it sit at room temperature for a couple of hours.
