General description and domicile:
Sponges are animals. They are the most primitive of all animals in that they do not have the ability to move themselves at all. In fact the only movement that is apparent on a sponge is its ability to pump water through the hundreds or thousands of canal it has in its body, which it needs to do to survive as it is a filter feeder (in other words it absorbs nourishment from the matter present in the water it filters.

The walls of these canals in their bodies are constructed from cells that have tiny feathery whip-like extrusions that propel the water through the sponge. The rest of the sponge is pretty much not like an animal at all. Not even the cells can be describes as animal-like for they do not resemble animal tissue at all. Most sponges look (and gather nutrients) like plants and even reproduce like plants by "budding" (i.e. a small bit falls off and starts its own sponge).

The homeopathic remedy is normally made from the common Mediterranean sponge.

Part used and extraction:
All of the sponge is used, washed clean.

Remedy preparation:
The sponge is roasted until dark brown and steeped in alcohol to obtain mother tincture

The sponge was widely used in ancient Greece and Rome for a variety of purposes ranging from cleaning to filling of cushions. In the middle ages burnt sponge became a favorite remedy against a variety of complaints. More recently vidabarine (a "constituent" of sponges) was used against the AIDS virus with some success.
