How to Harvest Aloe Gel

This is one I need to know. I can get a little gel out of the aloe leaf just by cutting the tip off and smearing the cut end all over me. Or at least smearing it on the burn or cut. But then what about the rest of the gel in the leaf – how do you harvest it? Since I plan on making my own moisturizer I need to learn these skills too.

Video after the break since I can’t get the auto-start to turn off.

That looks easy enough. I plan on using Aloe arborescens leaves. If you want a lot of gel all at once I recommend the Aloe ferox leaves.
