I have tried different brands of kelp powder and this is the worst. The color is not green as good quality kelp should be. Instead it is a clay color. Also the taste and smell are not reminiscent of the ocean, as good kelp is. It smells like clay and tastes like clay. I should have known better than to order the Starwest brand, since I ordered their nettles before and it was very poor quality. However, I took a chance on their kelp because I figured that kelp would be difficult to downgrade into poor quality. Needless to say, I have learned my lesson. I will never buy the Starwest brand again. I will have to use what I bought for my plants and maybe for applying to my thighs for reducing cellulite, as another reviewer suggested. Try the Frontier brand for better quality kelp powder. Try Mountain Rose Herbs for the best quality.
I like this kelp powder, because it's so finely ground. Most products that I have seen are too coarse for minerals to effectively assimilate into your body. Of course this kelp tastes terrible, as all kelp does, but you can try to blend it with something else to hide the taste. Maca powder works surprisingly well in this regard, and maca is healthy to eat in itself.
This product has been great for my natural hair!

I have been using this once a week to as part of my wash routine on my 4c Hair! My hair loves it and franky, so do I! The smell is not that great, but once you rinse out and use a scented leave in conditioner, the sea smell disappears. I would recommend.
Great for fertilizing

I use this for fertilizing my orchids. I put about half a spoon of the powder into 1 liter of water, (well first I dissolve it in a smaller amount of water because I have to stir and shake a bit for the powder to dissolve, then I pour in the rest of the water). I also add some regular orchid fertilizer in there. Plus I have a small spraying bottle for when I'm too lazy to soak the orchids, so I just spray some in the pots between waterings. (PS: I would never eat this powder.) :P
Perhaps change title to simply Kelp- Organic

Strive for better

It's a wonderful pack & idea, indeed. I am bit hesitant I would go for a repeat purchase though - kelp is know to be better for consumption when steamed/ sauted. This one seems to be ground raw kelp, which is real challenge for digestion when I put it to smoothies and salads. The only way to use it now is in cream soups or so. I hope you guys can do smth about it and also put more quality info on the pack. Thanks anyways.
