  • Blender


  • 1 oz Dried Raw Irish Sea Moss (about 29 grams when weighed)
  • Spring or Alkaline water for cleaning and soaking

Elderberry Ginger Liquid

  • 1/4 cup Dried Elderberries
  • 2-3" Fresh Ginger
  • 4 cups Spring or Alkaline Water


To Prepare Sea Moss

  • Place the 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. Drain and repeat this step once more.
  • Place the sea moss in a large bowl and cover it with filtered, spring water, or alkaline. (do not use tap water) Make sure all the parts of the sea moss are covered. Allow the sea moss to soak for 12-24 hours. (at room temperature)
  • After your sea moss has soaked and expanded, remove the sea moss from the water and transfer it to a clean plate. Discard the water that was used to soak the sea moss.

How to Make Elderberry Ginger Infused Sea Moss Gel

  • Grab a small saucepan and add 4 cups of spring, filtered, or alkaline water. Add 1/4 cup of dried elderberries to a tea infuser or tea filter bag and add it to the saucepan. Then, slice 2-3 inches of ginger and add it to the saucepan. Allow the ingredients to boil (on low) for 30 minutes, or until the liquid is reduced by half.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow the mixture to cool completely, about 10 minutes.  (Be sure to strain the mixture before using. Do not consume raw elderberries.)
  • Once the Elderberry Ginger Water has cooled, transfer the sea moss into a high-powered blender. Start by adding one cup of the elderberry ginger liquid to the sea moss and blend until it is smooth, about 1-2 minutes.
  • You can add more liquid, depending on your desired consistency. I like to use 2 cups of liquid. The sea moss gel will thicken significantly once you transfer it to the fridge.
  • Transfer your Elderberry Ginger Infused Sea Moss into an airtight container/mason jar, and refrigerate. The sea moss gel will thicken in the fridge after about 2 hours.
  • Enjoy 1-2 tbsp daily on its own, or in your favorite smoothie, drink, or tea.
  • Store the sea moss gel in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 month or in the freezer for up to 3 months.


MAKING SEA MOSS GEL: Start with 1 cup of liquid when blending and add up to 2 cups to reach your desired consistency. Remember, the sea moss gel will thicken when you put it in the fridge.
STORE: Store Sea Moss Gel 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.
What does spoiled sea moss smell like? Always be mindful of checking your sea moss gel before consuming it. Storing conditions vary and can impact how long the sea moss gel will last and be safe for consumption. If you open your sea moss gel and it has a pungent fishy smell, smells sour, or has any signs of molding or discoloration, this indicates that the sea moss has spoiled. Do not consume it and make sure to immediately throw it in the trash.
HOW MUCH TO TAKE: The recommended amount of Sea Moss Gel to take daily is 1-2 tablespoons per day.
