Sea moss, also known as Irish Sea Moss, is an incredible superfood with a wide range of health benefits! If done right, making Sea Moss Gel is easy and can be used in many ways, from in your smoothies to as a face mask! I’ll show you how to make it step-by-step so that you can begin to enjoy its amazing benefits!
Sea Moss is rich in amino acids, vitamin c, vitamin A, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and minerals.
It contains 92 of the 102 minerals that our bodies need like zinc, iodine, iron, and more!
Because it is mucilaginous (sticky and thick), it helps soothe the mucus membranes in the body and helps your body get rid of any excess mucus. It is especially helpful in reducing congestion and clearing out phlegm buildup in the lungs, which is particularly helpful when you are dealing with a cold. Sea Moss is also a prebiotic and helps to get rid of bad bacteria in the gut, which further increases digestive health.
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 more than twice to make sure it is cleaned thoroughly.
Simply place your 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. Cut and squeeze keylime into water. Put entire keylime in 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.
Rinse and drain. Blend with cup of spring water until smooth. Freeze some cubes for later.
