    Difficult to work with

    I have never used aloe powder before but I did not enjoy dealing with an almost tar like sticky oily residue on all my utensils.

    Dissolving problem

    Hi. I want to make a water/alor vera powder solution to add to my cosmetics, but when i want to dissolve it in water it becomes snot like and sticky, and does not dissolve, hie do i mix it with water to be able to use it? I want to make about 200ml aloe water solution that i can just add to my creams/ gels ect

    Amazing stuff

    Love the fact that I received it on time! Thank you for the free gift, definitely going to add it to my super potent hair mask.

    Ill be mixing it with Chebe, for hair growth - cant wait to share my results. I know its going to work!. Essentially Natural has saved a girls life - everything I need for my natural hair mask's is found on their website. Highly recommend your website!!

    Can't wait to hear how it works for you!

    Sticky and difficult to dissolve in water

    I am disappointed with this powder.

    I don’t know what that was

    I’m not sure if I received dirt or aloe Vera. Very disappointed
