Seamoss is a form of seaweed (species Gracilaria and Eucheuma) that occurs naturally in the Caribbean Sea.  It is dried, pulverized and sold either as a liquid or jelly, in the Saint Lucian islands where it has a hearty reputation as a potent aphrodisiac.  It can be found under a variety of brand names including Creme de la Mer, Seamoss Jelly, and my favorite,  Double Trouble Seamoss is consumed as a drink, either straight up, or mixed in a variety of punches.  It is also used in puddings, and desserts. Seamoss is also used in a variety of beauty products.3

The seamoss plant grows in the ocean a few feet below the surface and has no roots, leaves or flowers.  The plants consist of seaweed fronds attached to a central stem that is anchored to a rock or other stable surface allowing the plant to float and absorb sunlight and nutrients from the surrounding seawater.  Commercial seamoss mariculture1 is practiced on several islands in the Caribbean, including Grenada, St. Lucia & more recently Jamaica.
