Sepia. (Sepia Officinalis.)

Cuttle Fish. Mollusca.

Introduced by Hahnemann.

The cuttle fish is an inhabitant of the European seas, particularly the Mediterranean. Its ink bag contains a blackish-brown excretory liquor with which it darkens the water when it wishes to escape its enemies or catch its prey.

The triturations and tincture are made from the pure, dry, genuine Sepia, not from the artificial India ink used in drawing.
