Don't waste money on store-bought aloe gel that doesn't offer relief but does drain your wallet!

After processing, any filtering needed?
How long can it be preserved in the fridge?
What about just the gel without anything added?
Just an observation... a lot of water can drain out in sink. Can that yellow liquid be removed by any other economical method?
What about internal consumption?

No filtering is needed. I do suggest adding those items into it, because it is good for the skin & will keep longer. I recommend making it in small batches & keeping it sealed tight in a mason jar in the fridge. After cutting a leaf off the plant, that yellowish liquid that oozes out can cause irritations on the skin & will make you geel icky if ingested. That's why I rinse the leaf under water & let that yellow ick drain out. I'll get you some recipes that when prepared properly are ok to take internally. However, I always like to check with my doctor first.
