Take your aloe up a notch by infusing it with herbs.
I love to add calendula to enhance the skin-soothing benefits of aloe. Plantain would be a great option as well.
Place dried herbs in a clean jar, just how you would if making an oil infusion. (so, about 1/3 of the jar).
Pour aloe juice or aloe vera gel over the herbs so it fills most of the jar (leave an inch of headspace in the jar so the herbs have room to expand the absorb the aloe).
Cover and let steep for 3-4 weeks.
Use the herb-infused aloe as an after-sun gel or spray. Or add to homemade lotions and creams.
