My experience with the aloe vera plant is that the stuff inside it is hard to work with. It's like "super snot" that resists being mixed with anything else. Try to cut it with a knife and it just slides away.

Yes, succulent plants are usually like that.

I have noticed that they also sell aloe vera extract/powder which they say is 100% natural. Maybe I could buy the powder and mix it with warm water?

Well, I ended up buying the plant..
Today I was in a shop that had the plant and I just thought I would try it.
There are instructions online on how to extract the gel, so hopefully it will be fine, although the first time might be tricky and today I am not in the mood to try because I am a bit sick.
At least I can be sure it is pure.

Maybe putting the leaves on a clean kitchen towel will help with the slippery gel.
