Sea moss has garnered a lot of attention in recent years, particularly by Dr. Sebi (Alfredo Bowman) who is a self-proclaimed healing practitioner and Honduran herbalist.

Sea moss is the generic term used to describe a variety of seaweed or red algae and is a source of many health advantages. It’s a misleading name. It is actually a red seaweed, and not a Moss. There are a variety of sea moss. However the majority can be classified into two classifications: Chondrus Crispus and the Genus Gracilaria.
Irish Moss is Chondrus Crispus which is the red seaweed. It is found throughout the North Atlantic off the rocky coastlines that are Maine, Canada and Ireland. It likes cooler waters and is harvested from the wild. Chondrus generally has an intense red/black shade. However, the color may vary based on the place and time it is harvested in the season. It can vary from greenish yellow, deep purple, and even red. It is most often dark purple.
The moss that is harvested from the wild has advantages. It is a natural plant and harvesters remove the moss in a sustainable manner by removing only the parts of the sea moss which allows it to regrow and aid the ecosystem. This helps us continue experiencing Irish Moss for many years to come.
