Hi I have some Aloe Vera juice/gel from Lily of the Desert that I did not refrigerate after opening it. I do not want to drink it. Does anybody know if I can give it to plants as food just so it doesn't go to waste? Otherwise I'll just make it into shaving cream or something.

l found some other uses for Aloe vera juice/gel in addition to ingesting it.

Here is a partial list

1. Pamper yourself to a soothing body rub. Slice aloe leaves lengthwise and use the inner sides as a biodegradable body scrub in the shower.

3. For more major kitchen mishaps like a scald, mix some aloe gel and vitamin E oil into a little jar for a homemade burn healer.

4. Banish black and blue bruises by swapping on the good goo.
