Like everything else I consume, I’ve been in search of the perfect pure aloe juice. This last weekend when I went home to visit my mom in Mariposa, the very first thing I did, upon arriving, was head to the health food store to pick up Probiotic kefir and aloe juice. As it is every time I buy a new version of aloe juice, I’m bummed at how much it lacks potency.
So yesterday when I picked up a NEW version and was disappointed, yet again, I decided to start foraging the plant leaves and making my own. I know we all look to adaptogens from China and India but it's pretty rad that we have a powerful one growing right in our own neighborhoods LA.
