My lovebird keeps biting her feet?

It's like she's cleaning them, but she won't stop, even if i'm offering food.
There doesn't seem to be any injury or redness, she just won't stop itching.

I was looking online and found some stuff, but I'm unsure if this would be 100% safe:
It says that you can use the gel straight from an aloe vera plant, but I don't own one and doubt i'll be able to get a decent amount out of any of the small organic plants available for purchase.
I then looked on ebay and found this:
THE BEST ORGANIC ALOE VERA GEL (LIQUID) ON EBAY 1000'S SOLD. GREAT FOR SKIN | eBay

It says it's 100% the gel, with just some additives for preserving it from bacteria, or fungi? Even if they are in <1% amounts, would it be safe to apply to her feet, to relieve itching?
She will definitely end up consuming it, even if not intentionally.

(Please don't suggest an avian veterinarian, as the nearest one is at least a few hours away.)
