Aloe vera juice is a fantastic digestive aid with anti-inflammatory effects. It also works great to clean out impurities from the system because of its natural detoxifying and laxative effects. Making you own at home is better because the longer those brand-name bottles sit on the shelves, the quicker they lose their potency. Aloe vera is also one of the easiest plants to grow, so there's less of an excuse for not having them around! Here is how to easily make your own aloe vera juice at home with a blender.

Prep Time: 20 minutes


  • 3 large aloe leaves, thorns sliced off
  • 4 cups water


  1. Slice off the top green layer of the aloe leaf.

  3. For thinner aloe leaves, use a spoon to scoop out the gel and place in a bowl.
  4. For thicker leaves, use your knife to cut the block of gel out.
  5. Add 3 cups of water to your blender.
  6. Add aloe gel to the water.
  7. Pulse for a couple of minutes. Make sure there are no lumps.

  9. Enjoy as is or add to a fruit juice.

I have aloe vera plants outside and I'm looking for a recipe for aloe vera juice. Anybody got one?

Hey, I just got this from another website. Thought you'd like it!

· Cut off 8-10cm from a leaf, then slice the cutting lengthwise.
· Scoop out the gel found in the centre, taking great care not to pick up any of the yellowish layer next to the outer skin which is bitter and has powerful laxative effects.


· Whisk one to 2 teaspoons of the fresh gel into 1 cup of fresh cold water or vegetable juice and take daily or several times a week for intestinal health.

I have just come from my health food shop where they sell aloe vera leaves and plants for making the juice. I have lots in my garden so want to use them.

The advice is to take a 8-10 cm leaf and let the brown juice drip out of it for 3 days (this is the laxative part that causes diarrhea). Next slit it in half and keeping away from the leaf scoop out the gel. Mix the gel with lemon juice and whisk in a food processor. Then drink or store as ice cubes for use later.

I haven't drunk it yet as I am waiting for the 3 days to be up. Will keep everyone posted. Meanwhile I looked at other sites and it seems the brown liquid or aloin from the aloe leaf must be removed, as it has extreme laxative effects.

My son is 25 and he has Crohn's disease. I have many aloe vera plants, do you have a recipe I can use that will not bring on diarrhea? Thank you so much.

Aloe vera is wonderful, but I must add one warning. I have IBS, but I also have an extremely sensitive stomach, prone to ulcers and gastritis. If you have stomach (as opposed to bowel) problems, aloe vera can really do a nasty job of irritating the stomach.

So just be sure you don't have a history of ulcer disease, before you take aloe vera internally. :-) (08/15/2008)

I'm not sure about the aloe vera juice, but you can take turmeric for the diarrhea. It is a powerful anti-oxidant and stops diarrhea really well. There is a web site that has wonderful remedies. It's "earth clinic". You type in the problems, it gives really good advice. The only thing I've discovered about turmeric, is you need to get good quality and it needs to be in capsules, unless you capsule it your self. I have given up getting it from vitamin companies, cause it takes much more to work. I get it from a health food store in bulk.


One thing to look for when u do get it, is it has the appearance of a powder mixed with a little oil. The stuff from vitamin stores is always very dry and powdery. I use rubber gloves to do it, it will stain your fingers badly. I suffer from chronic diarrhea, so I have spent some time researching this. The good quality stuff only takes about 3/4 to 1.5 tsp. to work, I take 3/4tsp, in a large capsule, 3 times a day. Works like a charm, when I'm under stress. I need to take more. I use it in cooking, too. It's the main spice in lawry's season salt. Hope this helps. Try Earth Clinic, too. (08/19/2008)

I am a big fan of natural handmade soaps and keep trying them. They convert my bathing to real pleasure session. I would particularly mention this soap called Moksha. Sold by Lass Cosmetics, this natural handmade soap contains Lavende and Ylang ylang. Moksha is a treat for the muscles and the senses.

I also have been eating half a large aloe vera leaf (freshly picked) every day - just the gel.
I have noticed a lot of improvements. Would like to talk one on one with someone who also practices this.

I recently harvested a large amount of aloe gel from a plant that was climbing out of its big pot. I washed the stalks, slit them open, scraped the gel into a bowl, being sure NO GREEN was included. I then blended it on a low speed, and poured into into ice cube trays which I then inserted into plastic bags. When the aloe was frozen solid, I removed the cubes to another container and have them ready for smoothies or applying to skin. I am assuming that freezing retains the goodness of the aloe while preserving. (02/16/2009)
