How To Make Sea Moss Gel
Learn how to make some sea moss gel using only 2 ingredients. It's so quick, easy and versatile. You can add it to your food, smoothies, hair, skin and nails regime - the list is so endless!
Servings 1 Jar
- 3-4 oz sea moss (100g)
- 4-6 cups filtered water (or more as/if needed)
To prepare the sea moss
Use a colander to thoroughly wash the sea moss (use your hands to rid the debris) in cold water.
Place the sea moss in a large bowl then pour enough water to cover the sea moss.
Allow the raw sea moss to soak in water for several hours or overnight (during this time the sea moss will expand).
To make the gel
The following day you need to remove the sea moss from the water (you can use a slotted spoon or tongs to do so) then add the sea moss to a blender.
Pour some water into the blender along with the sea moss, start with about 1-2 cups (you can use the same water or fresh water if you want to) and add more if needed.
Blitz the sea moss into a smooth jelly/gel consistency.
Transfer the blended gel into an airtight container and refrigerate.Use accordingly.
- Be sure to buy whole/dried sea moss that is "organic" "wildcrafted or "wild harvested".
- Keep the gel refrigerated at all times.
- Feel free to freeze any sea moss into small ice cubes.
- The gel should last for up to 4 weeks refrigerated. However for maximum potency use within 3-4 days (that's just my personal opinion though!)
- Only make what you need, it's okay to break the dried sea moss in half or quarters to make a very small batch of gel.
- Do NOT buy sea moss that is refined i.e flakes or powder. This type of sea moss contains ZERO nutritional value.
- Do NOT boil your sea moss, allow it to soak and expand in its own time.
- Real sea moss should carry some debris with a slight smell of the ocean.
