Linseed gel – step by step recipe

  1. We mix the ingredients.Put 2 tablespoons of seeds into a small pot and pour 2 cups of hot water over them, cover with a lid and cook over low heat.
  2. We boil.We are waiting for the mixture to boil. At the same time, we keep stirring every now and then, because the grains like to stick to the bottom. Let’s make sure it does not boil over.
  3. We cook.From the time of boiling, cook on even lower heat for up to 10-15 minutes, then turn it off when it starts to thicken.
  4. Draining.Hot flaxseed is immediately poured through a strainer, sometimes it is enough to just tilt the pot and pour it, the seeds have fallen for days and it is easy to separate them from the slime.
  5. Ready!Linseed gel is ready to use, but put it in the fridge, where it will thicken even more. It has a shelf life of about a week.


Keep the linseed gel in the refrigerator. It has a shelf life of about a week. It can also be preserved with cosmetic intermediates, such as FEOG.

Some people only strain the mixture after the stocking has cooled down, but I don’t recommend it – chemicals and a lot of dirty work.
