Aloe Vera Ice Cubes ~ The Southern Scoop's Travel Hack of the Month

Too much time in the sun? We’ve got you covered!

What you’ll need:

~ An empty ice cube tray

~ Aloe Vera plant or store-bought gel

~ A spoon and a knife (Only needed if you’re using a plant)

Preparation:

Method #1 Using the Aloe Vera plant

~ Cut away as many leaves as you need

~ Remove the skin from the leaves

~ Using the spoon, scoop out the gel into the ice cube trays

~ Toss in the freezer (Depending on your freezer, the time required may range from 30 minutes to a few hours, however overnight is best!)

Method #2 Using highly concentrated store-bought Aloe Vera gel

~ Squeeze the gel into the ice cube tray

~ Toss in the freezer (Depending on your freezer, the time required may range from 30 minutes to a few hours, however overnight is best!)

Once the cubes are frozen, just use a cloth to hold and apply the aloe cubes onto sunburns or any other scratch or burn. Just be careful to use conservatively, you don’t want it drip everywhere!
