Aloe Vera Purple Inside
I have been using Aloe Vera on my skin for years, but this was always from a plant my mum had, which had a clear gel (sometimes yellow/light brown colour in it) which I know is normal.
But when I bought a plant myself, I cut it open and it had clear gel, but also a purple 'liquid', kind of like a purple juice on the leaf walls, not in the gel. Is this normal? and is this plant still ok to use for skin care, sunburn etc..?
Wow, I've never seen purple in that stuff called ambertose - which, as you say, is in the walls of the leaves. My first guess is that it is from a slightly different plant in the aloes family or species.
Let's hope that someone who has experience with this will comment here and let us know for sure.
Personally, I'd take a positive view and just treat it as something unique - like flowers of a new shade of colour.
Blessings & Thanks,
P.S. Are you able to comment and attach a photo of a cut leaf?
