Rich in potassium chloride, Irish moss can work wonders for congestion and mucous and holds anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. It’s also thought to be good for dry skin and for skin conditions ranging from eczema to psoriasis, making it a valued ingredient for lotions and moisturizers.

Sea moss serves as a prebiotic for your gut, which allows good bacteria to thrive. It’s also full of fiber, which promotes a healthy colon and digestive system while removing harmful bacteria. Sea moss may also promote weight loss and improved metabolism.

HOW TO PREPARE SEA MOSS
It is important to first, clean the sea moss and remove any sea debris, dirt, or particles. When handling sea moss always make sure your hands are clean so that you do not contaminate the sea moss and be sure to use filtered spring or alkaline water. Never use tap water to clean your sea moss.

I recommend cleaning your sea moss twice to make sure it is cleaned thoroughly. Simply place your dried sea moss in a large bowl, cover it with water, and massage the sea moss. Be sure to remove any visible dirt and debris.

After cleaning the sea moss, place the sea moss in a large bowl and cover it with filtered, alkaline, or spring water. Make sure all the parts of the sea moss are covered. Then, cover the sea moss and allow it to soak for at least 12-24 hours. You can leave it on the counter covered at room temperature. You do not need to soak the sea moss in the refrigerator.

Once it is done soaking it will have expanded as it has absorbed the water. It is now ready to use. You can leave the sea moss in this state and use as needed, or prepare a sea moss gel (highly recommended).

Does boiling sea moss kill the nutrients? The answer is YES, it does! Do not boil your sea moss.

 

Boiling the sea moss is a method some people use when making sea moss gel. I prefer to soak it raw to maintain the highest integrity and nutrient content.

It is important to note: Boiling sea moss when making sea moss gel, and adding sea moss gel to hot foods/while cooking are two different things and not to be confused with one another.

Sea moss gel is a great addition to hot drinks and you can also add it to foods when cooking and still provides incredible nutrient benefits.

HOW TO MAKE SEA MOSS GEL
Making sea moss gel is super easy! Once you have your soaked sea moss, remove the sea moss from the liquid, and transfer it to a clean, dry plate. Do not discard the water because this water, which now contains tons of nutrients from the sea moss, will be used to make the gel. (If your water has lots of debris in it or is cloudy, discard your water and use fresh spring or alkaline water to make your sea moss gel.)

Add the sea moss to a high-powered blender along with the water. Use 1 cup of water to start and add more depending on the consistency you would like your gel.
Blend until it is smooth, about 1-3 minutes. Transfer the Sea Moss into an airtight container/mason jar, and refrigerate. The sea moss gel will thicken in the fridge after 2 hours

HOW TO STORE SEA MOSS AND HOW LONG DOES SEA MOSS GEL LAST
Sea Moss Gel: Store in an airtight container. It can last in the fridge for up to 1 month. You can store it in the freezer for up to 3 months. You can also pour it into an ice-cube tray and freeze the sea moss for later use. This is perfect for taking the cubes and throwing them into your smoothies.

Dry Sea Moss (unsoaked and raw) can be stored for up to one year in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.

HOW TO USE SEA MOSS IN A SMOOTHIE
You can put the soaked sea moss directly into a smoothie, about 1-2 tbsp
Or you can add sea moss gel 2 tablespoons up to 1/4 cup.

HOW MUCH SEA MOSS GEL TO TAKE DAILY
The recommended amount to take daily is 1-2 tablespoons per day. You can take up to 1/4 cup.

CAN YOU EAT SEA MOSS BY ITSELF?

You technically can eat sea moss gel on its own. Some people do not mind the taste and enjoy taking it with nothing else. On its own sea moss may have a slight seaweed taste. However, you cannot taste it at all when it is mixed into juices and smoothies, or used as a thickener in soups or dessert.
