How to Prepare Raw Sea Moss

This beautiful sea moss we offer is raw and pure. It's natural for you to see the sun-dried sea salt and elements complementing it in its organic state. We hope you enjoy the ritual of washing and preparing this abundant and magical gift of the sea, unlocking the nutrients that give your body so much more of what it needs to be vital and healthy.

While this is our recommendation, there are lots of great ideas on how to prepare and use raw sea moss out there like this one from Organics Nature called 4 Easy Ways to Make Sea Moss Gel at Home.

Start with the basics, and feel free to get creative!


  • Raw Sea Moss
  • Large Bowl
  • Water
  • Lime or Lemon (Optional)


  1. Rinse: Start by thoroughly rinsing your raw sea moss to remove any sand, salt, or other debris. You can do this by placing the sea moss in a large bowl, covering it with water (preferably spring or alkaline), and gently massaging the moss. Then drain and repeat until it's clean.

  2. Soak: Once it's clean, you need to rehydrate the sea moss. Place it in a large bowl and cover it with room temperature water. If you'd like, you can add a squeeze of lime or lemon juice during the soak, but this isn't necessary. Let the sea moss soak for 8 to 24 hours. It should expand significantly as it soaks up the water.

  3. Blend: After the sea moss has been soaked, it's time to blend it. Drain the water from the soaking process and place the sea moss in a blender. Add enough fresh water so that it covers the sea moss by about an inch. Blend until it is smooth and creamy.

Now, you have sea moss gel. You can use this gel in various recipes, including smoothies, soups, sauces, and facial masks. It can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 weeks.

The exact amount of sea moss gel you can make from an ounce of dry sea moss depends on a few factors, including how much water you add when blending it. However, a common estimate is that one ounce of dry sea moss can make about sixteen ounces (2 cups) of sea moss gel.

If you want a thicker gel, use less water. For a thinner gel, use more water. Remember, always start with less water - you can always add more if needed :)

A common recommendation is to consume about 1-2 tablespoons of sea moss gel per day.

While sea moss is generally safe for most people, certain individuals should be cautious. For instance, individuals with thyroid conditions, pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their healthcare provider before taking sea moss or any other supplements.

Remember, while sea moss is rich in certain nutrients, it should not replace a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Aim to get most of your nutrients from a variety of whole foods. Supplements like sea moss can help fill in the gaps, but they shouldn't be relied on as a primary source of nutrition.
