Here is a suggestion 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 can be kept for about 2 weeks in the fridge (rely on its smell and colour to see if it’s still usable). Apply 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 alternative

A variation: in a bottle, mix together Aloa Vera gel (80%) and jojoba oil (20%). Shake well before use!
