Basket or Vase Sea Sponge

Native to the warm waters off the Florida Coast. Marine sponges can grow to be large, beautiful features of an ocean ecosystem. Each sponge vase is harvested, hand-picked and the shapes are endless. Serving as a filter system in the water with natural defenses and a safe hiding place for small fish and other creatures, but large enough to shelter crabs, shrimp, and starfish. 

Irregular tufted surfaces and vase-like shapes are perfect for decorative use. The sea basket can grow up to 18 inches high and 5 inches wide which makes for a unique nesting space for decorative soap, hand towels, small plants, bathroom accessories, salt water aquarium tanks, nautical décor and much more.

Natural Sea Sponges are an amazing pore-bearing creature of the sea filtering water, collecting bacteria and have a very important job fueling productivity throughout the ecosystem for many years. Praised for their natural softness and strength, harvested carefully to ensure minimal disruption, base roots are left intact creating the ability for new growth to original form healthier and bigger than before. With a life span of approximately 8 to 10 years, harvesting allows for re-generation and extended life.

As a renewable natural resource, many can rest assure while practicing more eco-friendly ways to use products and material, the sea sponge is biodegradable and does not retain bacteria when used for personal care. They are hypoallergenic and naturally exfoliating. Sea Sponges stimulate and revitalize skin, effective for skin conditions, organic and durable.

Cleaning Sea Sponges: Sea Sponges are naturally stiff when dry and become soft when wet. Inspect the sponge for sea particles. Natural sponges may occasionally contain small shells or coral fragments. Washing before use is recommended. Using a 1-1 ratio of water and hydrogen peroxide will clean the sponge if it becomes discolored. A few drops of tea tree essential oil in 1 cup of warm water are an effective germicide and will eliminate any odors in the sea sponge. Another method of 1 Tablespoon white vinegar and 1 cup of water will also be helpful in maintaining your sponge. Color of the sea sponge may vary within the sponge itself.
