  1. Take a pot and fill with two cups of water
  2. Add 1/4 cup of Flax seeds.  Bring to a boil and let it cook for 10-15 minutes.

    1. Do NOT let mixture over cook, The mixture will gel and will be virtuously impossible to strain.

  1. I love it too!!

  2. What kind of strainer

  3. you can use cheese cloth or any regular strainer. Note: don't let it "gel" before you strain, otherwise it will be a mess...

  4. Get yourself a big metal tea strainer (round metal ball)...that helps keep seeds need to manually strain and throw it in the fridge when done for next use.

  5. Well I hope this would work. I am using papaya seed gel already and this is making my hair healthy, shiny and strong.
