in the fridge, or if you want to freeze it, put it in a freezer bag, but they dont last long after thawing out. i have kept them in the fridge for 6 months before with no problems

When you use aloe, you are suppose to just break off the END... there is no need to break off a whole "leaf"

Unprocessed Aloe vera gel is not very stable and won’t keep long, so
make small batches only, store it in the fridge and use up quickly. For
maximum benefit of Aloe Vera as an ingredient of skin care preparations
such products should contain at least 20-40% of gel. Or simply cut off
a leaf and rub it straight on the skin.
