Seaweed Materia Medica


Seaweed oil is unique among essential oils in that it is distilled from a sea plant. Its environmental origins help us form its remedy picture. In homeopathy, it’s noted that remedies which come from the sea are generally better in the evening and in darkness. Seaweed’s anchoring to rocks by way of holdfasts is a signature of its affinity for those who are “rootless” and require a “rock” in their lives to hold onto. Consider this oil for individuals who have just lost a husband, wife or parent who had served as a steady, anchoring rock in their lives.

For many centuries in many parts of the world, seaweed (which contains a large amount of vitamins, minerals and trace elements), has served as an important food for both humans and animals. The ancient Chinese, whose use of edible seaweeds traces back to the 5th century, thought so highly of seaweed that they made offerings of it to their ancestors.
