The Q&A Archives: freezing medicinal aloe vera (stalks?)

Question: I have some aloes that are too old and taking up too much space. Instead of giving them all away, can I freeze some for
using on burns?

Answer: Dianne,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

I am not sure about your aloe question. I have heard of freezing the leaves for use later but have no idea the effect of longer term freezing on the plant and its medicinal qualities. It is worth a try.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
