Making biostimulating juice from Aloe by the method of V.P. Filaki
The middle, lower and well-developed aloe leaves have the most effective effect. The leaves should be carefully separated from the plant. Some authors believe that it is best to do this only with a wooden knife (not a metal knife). Wash in cold water. Leave the leaves to dry naturally. Then put the leaves in a bowl and cover the bowl. Leave in a dark place to stand for 12-15 days at a temperature of 6-8 ° C. Optimal time-two weeks of refrigerated storage is advised. After this treatment, some leaves will turn black. Such parts should be carefully cut off and discarded. Healthy leaves should be ground on a meat grinder. Strain the porridge through a double cotton gauze. Thus we get a valuable and biostimulating aloe juice. Sometimes higher requirements are needed to make the juice. In order to start a factory for the production of necessary useful substances of absolute power, the plant is not watered for 5-7 days before cutting the leaves. Freshly cut leaves are placed in the refrigerator. Keep for 10-12 days at a temperature of 2-6 ° C in a well-closed container. After the release of biogenic stimulants, the matter is used to prepare various medicines. Experiments conducted regarding the effect of aloe juice on various harmful microorganisms have shown the highest degree of efficiency of fresh juice of this plant. The longer the juice is kept the effect gradually weakens. After a while, the effect completely disappears.

Biostimulating juice is also used against various skin diseases (in this sense also against radiation). It is drunk strictly on the doctor’s recommendation.
