Now let’s jump to the part where we get to know ‘how to prepare sea moss’.
Well, you can buy dried (raw) sea moss and prepare sea moss gel right at your home as well and if you’re planning to make it, here you go:
To make sea moss gel, soak your raw sea moss in fresh, drinking water for about 12 – 24 hours. The next day, carefully rinse the weed and put it in your blender. Add a bit of water so that it blends and appears smooth and even. Pour the sea moss solution into some nice and clean airtight mason jar and refrigerate for about the same time (12 – 24 hours). You’ll open your container the next morning to find out that you have successfully made sea moss gel. It’s that simple.
In case that’s too much effort for you, you can always go for the readymade sea moss gel that’s easily available in big box stores and online. You can look around and the one that looks reasonable to you.
Note: Make sure to only buy from a reputable source such as Herbal Vineyard as you would not want to waste your energy, time, and cash over something that’s not right.
