Juice: aloe anew

Us desert folk have looked to the healing powers of the aloe plant for ages.  As a little girl, my abuela used to cut the leaves from her sacred plant for teas and medicines.  Each layer of this succulent plant serves a different and wonderful purpose.  To harness this purpose, I’ve combined some complementary ingredients to help flush out toxins and cleanse the system.
