Before this element was converted into the Phosphorus homeopathic remedy, it used to have a wide range of uses.

In Greek, Phosphrous means to  “bear light.” The element was given this name because of the fact that it shines in the air when put into a darkened area.

The element was first discovered in 1669 by a German merchant who lit his urine on fire and showed his discovery to Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, a prominent German philosopher, logician, and mathematician of the time.

Of course, the process of creating the phosphorous element is done differently today. See here for more details.

Phosphorous is also one of the 5 elements that make up our DNA aside from hydrogen, carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen. It’s second to calcium as one of the most abundant mineral in the body.

In the body, its job is to make bones and teeth, metabolize fats, and maintain fluids in the cells. Essentially, this element creates boundaries within the body’s cells, which is a major theme throughout its homeopathic use.

Commercially, it is used to grow algae in water and for plant fertilization.
