Hang out with me while I harvest gel from a whole Aloe Vera plant! (Thank you for 50K subscribers!)

Thank you all for helping me reach 50,000 subscribers! In this video, I put a small dent in a big project: Harvesting one of MANY Aloe Vera plants for the gel. I found an easy new ‘trick’ to fileting the leaves more quickly: Using a great potato peeler!

All of the Aloe Vera in the video are generation offsets from my mom’s plant that I took a baby from when I was about 18. She passed away in 2003, so these are all the great-great x10 grand babies lol! Needless to say, I have to get control over these pots and no better way that to actually use them for their generous healing and moisturizing qualities.
