Moisturizing gel for skin and hair

Here is a proposal for a multi-purpose moisturizing gel that requires only two ingredients and will make your skin and hair happy. Easy to use!


30 g of flax seeds
150 ml of water

Cautionary note

Please read this warning carefully!


Soak the seeds for 24 hours, filter by pressing through a strainer. The gel will keep for about 2 weeks in the fridge (rely on its smell and colour). Put on the skin either alone or mixed with oil. The gel can also be put on dry hair (tips) or used as a styling gel. The seeds can be used in a cake, pie, biscuits or crackers, especially as an alternative to eggs!

Minimalist version

It is also possible to mix together Aloa Vera gel (80% of the bottle) and jojoba oil (20% of the bottle).
