Intro to Sea Moss

How to Use Mrs. Moss Sea Moss:

Raw Moss:

To create your own sea moss gel, you're going to need a couple of ingredients:

Mrs. Moss Raw Moss - We provide certified wild-crafted sea moss from St. Lucia. 

Limes - Although limes are optional, they help to cut the seaweed or "ocean-y" taste that oftentimes comes with wild-crafted sea moss. 

Water - The type of water that you use to make your sea moss truly does matter. Tap water can contain heavy metals or contaminants that would minimize the effects of the sea moss. We suggest that you use filtered, spring, or alkaline water. 


Once all your ingredients are gathered, you're going to soak your sea moss. As sea moss is an aquatic plant, it's full potential is met when it has time to rehydrate within the water of your choice. Rinse your sea moss and add it to a container that can be covered. Completely cover your moss with water and add in a few cut up pieces of lime. Gently massage your moss and cover the container. You're going to want to allow your moss to soak for a minimum of 12 hours. Optimally, sea moss should be soaked for anywhere between 12 to 24 hours at room temperature. 

After you've soaked your moss, you're going to prepare the gel. Drain your sea moss and remove the limes. You're going to want to rinse your moss off one last time and then add it to a blender. Add some water and whatever natural flavorings you would like, if any, and blend it up until it reaches your desired consistency. 

To Store: To properly store your sea moss, please find a container with a durable lid that is suitable for your refrigerator. The shelf life of your sea moss depends on the quantity of the sea moss gel that you make, as well as how often your container is opened.
