Tried this yesterday. Eight cups of water, 1 cup flax seed and boiled it. If it overflows it makes a supreme mess!! You end up with a very slippery slimy goo that has to be injected. The longer it sits out the thicker it gets. It feels great coming out too! I will be doing this again, just in a smaller quantity. I got the recipe from this site, just starting its own topic line.
