I accidentally burned the inside of my mouth and the pain and redness kept me awake for the last couple of nights. Then I remembered a cool way to use my Aloe Vera plant. Did you know you can eat Aloe vera goo? As long as you have an edible version of the plant and the goo is perfectly clear, it’s safe to eat. Yellow goo will cause all sorts of stomach problems, so make sure to check it properly.
I cut off one of the plump leaves, put it in the fridge for an hour to chill it and then removed the green skin, leaving a nice gooey filet on the cutting board. Taking a bite of this chilly snot filet is a feeling you don’t get anywhere else. It tastes like nothing, but I still couldn’t bring myself to swallow it. It did calm down my burned mouth for a while. I don’t know if it will aid in the healing process, but it couldn’t hurt to try.
Next time I’ll probably use the goo in a smoothie. This is way cheaper than buying a flask of pure Aloe Vera drink, too.
