Is Irish moss the next big superfood? (RECIPES)

Rich in antioxidants and nutrients, Irish moss has been harvested in Ireland for centuries.

• 2 tablespoons almond oil

1. Soak Irish moss in distilled water for 20 minutes. Pour mixture into a small saucepan and boil for 20 minutes. Strain off solids; you will have a clear jelly.

2. Measure ¼ cup of the seaweed jelly, then mix it with the aloe vera gel. Let the mixture cool completely.

3. Pour seaweed mixture into a blender and blend on low speed; slowly add the almond oil in a thin stream until blended. You will have a light, white lotion.

4. Pour lotion into a clean container. To use, massage a small amount into your skin.
