I now have a vat of aloe vera juice in the fridge.
After hearing about the medicinal benefits of internal ingestion, the Bohemian harvests aloe from the backyard and blends it with honey and lemon from neighboring farmers. It’s a homegrown concoction that’s quite tasty, though my intuition hints at imbibing it with caution.
Isn’t aloe vera known as a powerful laxative? This morning’s online searches confirm my hunch.
Regardless, this tonic is better than any of the latest aloe vera drinks we’ve been seeing pop up on the natural food store shelves.
Besides, this homemade version’s virtues are touted with an exotic Czech accent that keeps wanting to pronounce the silent ‘e’, to make it “alo-eh”.
I may only be sipping this alo-eh elixir. But I’m drinking in the beauty of its goo. Wow!
