HOW TO USE
To consume seamoss is it prepared into a gel form which can be consumed on its own or by adding to smoothies, protein shakes, teas and juices. It can also be used as a face mask or hair mask. To prepare it into a gel follow the directions below:
1) CLEAN SEAMOSS
In a large bowl add purified water (bottled fluoride free, tap water contains too many chemicals) and gently massage your seamoss removing sea salt and any sea debris. Drain + repeat if needed.
Tip: If you find it smells 'fishy' use fresh lime juice to remove the odour. ( Remember this is a ocean product)
2) SOAK IT
Cover the Seamoss with fresh purified water and let is soak for 12-24 hours. (save the water for the next step)
After the Seamoss has soaked overnight add it to the blender and only a little of the remaining water to start. Add more depending on the consistency you like. You want it to resemble a gel/applesauce like consistency. Blend until smooth then refrigerate.
