Aloë Arborescens well in a good draining soil. You can of course get a pre-made cacti soil from the garden center, or you can create your own. At least use a quality potting soil with perlite and perhaps even some sand. Most sucullents and cacti will also do well in a pon mixture or grit mixture.
As for the humidity you don’t need to do anything special for your Aloë. These plants will be fine in any house hold or office conditions.
In the growing season you can fertilize your plant without a problem. The rest of the year it’s not needed to fertilize your plant. Always check the care instructions before using the product.
