Wild Atlantic Seaweed
Seaweed is the everyday name for numerous varieties of marine algae and plants, it grows in oceans as well as in rivers, lakes and streams. It ranges in size from the microscopic phytoplankton to the huge giant kelp and comes in a range of stunning colours from red, green to brown.
Humans have used seaweed for thousands of years for an array of things, in the 1600’s in an Irish home the woman of the house had three main things to look after, first being the potatoes, secondly the seaweed and thirdly the children so seaweed has always been so important.
Seaweed bathing is a 300 plus year old Irish tradition of soaking in a bath infused with seaweed ‘the fisherman’s cure’, wild Atlantic seaweed is from some of the cleanest waters in the world.
