Strainer which can include panty hose or leg stocking
- Boil a pot of water about half of quart and place about ¼ cup of flax seeds in the pot.
- Constantly stir the water and seeds.
- When the water thickens like gel & white foam is produced remove the pot from heat and continue to stir.
- Place a strainer over the storage container.
- Pour gel into container. If using a panty hose or leg stocking as a strainer use tongs to squeeze the gel through the hosiery.
- That’s it! Let the gel cool before using and store in the refrigerator for later use.
The seeds can be used again unless boiled for a very long time. The longer the seeds are boiled the less gel you will produce next time.
