What is Sea Moss?

Irish Sea moss, commonly referred to as Chondrus Crispus, is a type of red algae native to the Atlantic shorelines of the Caribbean Islands, North America, Europe. Sea moss has become increasingly popular due to Dr. Sebi’s teachings on the healing properties of sea moss. 

Types of Sea Moss:

There are several species of seaweed/algae that are commonly referred to as sea moss. Today’s most popular and commonly used are Chondrus Crispus, Genus Gracilaria, and Eucheuma Cottonii.

Sea Moss 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. 

Sea Moss is also great for your skin!

I am sure you have heard of the recent sea moss facial trends. Because of its high vitamin and mineral content, sea moss is great when applied directly to the skin. It helps improve eczema, psoriasis, and acne outbreaks.

Here’s a list of a few vitamins and minerals found in Sea Moss

  • Potassium
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Selenium
  • Vitamins A, K, and E
  • Zinc
  • Folate
  • Manganese
  • Selenium

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. 

Cleaned Sea Moss (before soaking)

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.

Soaked Irish Sea Moss

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). 

Soaked Sea Moss
Soaked Sea Moss (ready for use)

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. My Blueberry Chia Sea Moss Jam is a great example. 

How to Make Sea Moss Gel (Sea Moss Gel Recipe)

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 or 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 make Irish Sea Moss Gel

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 1-2 tablespoons of sea moss gel

How much sea moss gel to take daily

The recommended amount of sea moss gel to take daily  is 2 tablespoons for adults and 1 tablespoon for children.

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.

How much Bladderwrack to add to Sea Moss

Bladderwrack enhances the sea moss and also has a ton of incredible benefits of its own, including increasing your thyroid health, aiding in digestion, and cleansing the body. If you want to add bladderwrack to your sea moss, add 1 tbsp bladderwrack powder per 8 ounces of Sea Moss Gel.

Uses of sea moss gel:

Sea moss does not have a taste (at all), which is why I love it so much and why it can be added to a variety of foods! 

Try using sea moss  gel in your:

  • Smoothies
  • Juices
  • To replace a thickening agent in cooking
  • As a salad dressing
  • Dip for fruit 
  • Face Mask
  • Hair Mask

Where did I get my Sea Moss

I got my sea moss from Donata Skinfood. Always make sure you get your sea moss from a reputable source.

Reply

Using it as a salad dressing sounds great! I’ve done that a few times and added fresh herbs and lemon to make it even tastier! As for the mask, I would say as often as you like. There are some that do it every day. I personally like to use it as a mask 2-3 times a week. I mix a tablespoon with about a teaspoon of turmeric and where it for 20 minutes.

Hi Levy. I haven’t come across the problem of my sea moss being too salty. It’s best to use the water that the sea moss was soaked in as it holds a ton of nutrients, but you can always use fresh purified water to make the gel.

Reply
Renee December 2, 2020 - 5:35 am

I haven’t tried it, but I’ve heard that some soak it with a bit of lime juice to help cut the salt taste.

Reply
Capri Lilly December 8, 2020 - 1:28 am

I’ve tried it both ways. If you rinse your sea moss well, it should not taste salty. I have not run into my sea moss tasting salty. I have tried soaking my sea moss with lime and it does not make a noticeable difference.

Hi Bryan! Yes, your sea moss is still nutritious and should be just fine! I usually use 2 cups when making my sea moss because I like the consistency it gives.

For the gel recipe, I’m not sure I understand one part (probably a silly question). The first 1-2 soaks of sea moss & water to clean (before using the spring or purified water to mix in the blender)… Is that using tap water or the spring /purified water?
Wondered since it’s a soak rinse step, can tap water be used, then switch to the ‘cleaner’ spring water to make the gel?
Thanks for the review and reply… Great article?

Hello! I recommend using spring or purified water throughout the entire process if you can. 🙂

Thanks for the awesome recipes! I was wondering if 2 oz. will yield enough for 1 cup.

Hi Tomeka! Yes, definitely should! And you may have more than one cup depending on how much liquid you use! 🙂

Do you use 1-2 cups of the water that the seaweed soaked in or clean water?

1 cup clean spring or purified water.

I’ve read that prepared sea moss gel must be stored in the fridge covered with a piece of cheesecloth or something similar to allow it to breath, since it is a living organism. When I tried it (for the first time), it seemed to have spoiled prior to 4 weeks. Curious about your thoughts on this (allowing it to breath vs. storing in air tight container; or perhaps either is acceptable).

Hi Ej! Storing in an airtight container in the fridge is the best practice.

Hi was wondering do I just add the powdered bladderwrack when I’m blending the sea moss?

Reply
Capri Lilly March 20, 2021 - 6:52 pm

Hi! Yes, I usually add it after I’ve done my initial blending of the sea moss. I’ll add the Bladderwrack and blend to incorporate.

When blending my sea moss in a high power blender it warmed it up a bit. Do you think that will affect the nutrients?

Hi Val! Not at all!

Thank you. Please clarify the water usage: I’m confused by using spring water to soak and clean the moss but then turn around and use the same dirty water to make the gel? A little confused, thanks.

Reply
Capri Lilly April 13, 2021 - 9:17 pm

Hello, you should thoroughly clean the sea moss, removing any visible dirt and debris before soaking the sea moss. The water you use to clean the sea moss should be discarded. Then use fresh spring or alkaline water to soak the sea moss. If you have properly cleaned your sea moss the water should not be dirty. However, if you find the water is cloudy or dirty after the sea moss has soaked and expanded, use fresh water to make the sea moss gel.

I just made this for the first time. Has a seaweed smell (shocker) but I tried a teaspoon right away… It was tough to get down. I think I will mix it with my tuna tomorrow so I don’t notice the taste. Looking forward to the health benefits.

That sounds like a great idea! I have tons of recipes throughout my site using sea moss, lots of smoothies, and even Blueberry Sea Moss Jam! Hope you like!
