How to Boil Flax Seeds

The process of boiling allows flax seed to release a clear, mucus-like substance that has several uses. You may use the boiled flax seed substance as a gentle, natural hair gel, or you may use it to add a healthy dose of fibre to your diet. Boiling flax seed is a straightforward process that you can accomplish in your kitchen.

Place 4 tablespoons of flax seed in a pot.

Cover the flax seed with 2 cups of water.

Bring the water to a rolling boil and allow it to boil for 10 minutes.

Allow the pot and contents to cool completely.

Pour the cooled substance through a strainer into a deep bowl. The strainer catches the spent seeds.

Allow the liquid to cool and use as a hair gel or as a food additive.
