Traditional Method

 The Traditional Method (TM) of preparing the placenta for encapsulation involves gently steaming the placenta before dehydration. This process brings warmth back to the placenta, and thus back to the mother to restore balance. These capsules are made by gently rinsing, preparing and steaming the placenta over an infusion of fresh lemon and ginger. Lemon being a grounding remedy, which alongside ginger aids in circulation and the distribution of healing properties throughout the body. The steamed method of encapsulation will yield fewer capsules due to the steaming process shrinking the placenta. These warming herbs familiar to Chinese medicine are believed to warm and energise you, destroy bacteria and preserve the placenta. After steaming over the lemon and ginger the placenta is sliced into strips, dehydrated, finely ground and placed into capsules. Please allow up to 4 days for this service once your placenta has been collected/delivered to me.

Raw Method

The Raw method of preparing the placenta for encapsulation still involves dehydrating the placenta, but skips the steaming step. The concept behind this approach is that more of the essence of the placenta is preserved as the steaming process can reduce vital enzymes and shrink the placenta in the process. Some argue that the Raw method also yields capsules with more hormones and nutrients than the TM method. The placenta is still dehydrated to food-safe internal temperatures, killing off any residual bacteria. This method tends to give moms more energy, and yields more capsules than the TM. *Not recommended for GBS positive or sensitive mothers. **Not recommended for mothers who have had a COVID 19 infection within the 20 days prior to the birth. Please allow up to 4 days for this service once your placenta has been collected/delivered to me.

Half & Half Method

Your placenta is prepared with each of the methods so you will receive both Traditional Method and Raw Method Capsules. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a postpartum mother is encouraged to only eat and drink warm foods and beverages. In order to return her body to homeostasis, we must warm the mother by only giving her stews, broths, tea, etc. By steaming the placenta, a tonifying or warming food, it helps the mother return to baseline. Once the mother feels she has returned to a more balanced state, she can begin taking the Raw Prepared capsules. These capsules are more potent that the Traditional Method capsules as they retain more nutritional, hormonal and trace element content due to not being steamed. More energy can be felt for the mother when consuming these, which she may need after the first month. *Not recommended for women who are GBS+, as this contains Raw capsules which are unsuitable. The Traditional Method is the only method suitable. **Not recommended for mothers who have had a COVID 19 infection within the 20 days prior to the birth. Please allow up to 4 days for this service once your placenta has been collected/delivered to me.

Placenta Tincture

Placenta tincture is where we take a piece of your raw placenta and put it into a bottle with 100 proof vodka. It is a concentrated alcohol solution, with a thumbnail size of your raw placenta steeped within, that contains powerful nutrients and hormones to provide balance when your body needs it. Placenta Tincture is a very potent remedy because of its healing properties, versatility and ease of use. Making a tincture increases the longevity of your placenta so you feel the benefits for longer. The placenta is also an amazing source of stem cells and a tincture allows for ultimate preservation without steaming or dehydration prior to creation. Made with with premium Grain Alcohol (40% Vol) 100 proof, it will then infuse for 6 weeks. After this time it is ready for use, resulting in a powerful remedy which embodies your placenta's hormonal, mineral and nutritional quality. Your tincture can be used in any time of trauma, transition, and emotional distress to ease your symptoms, especially when your placenta capsules have run out and you’re reaching for your own “rescue remedy”. Some mother's use their tincture to feel more balanced when their first menstrual cycle returns, or as they wean from breastfeeding. Some women use it when they are feeling run down and depleted after months of less than optimal sleep or even many years later to help with menopause. The tincture has an extremely long shelf life and does not have an expiry date due to the potency of the alcohol it is in. *Not recommended for mothers who cannot tolerate alcohol Please allow 6 weeks for your tincture to infuse prior to using. You will be advised of the date which you can begin using your tincture.

Placenta Salve

A placenta salve is a healing herbal ointment infused with your placenta powder. The salve not only contains your placenta but also herbs that are traditionally used for healing skin tissue including calendula, lavender, comfrey root and plantain. Your salve is created with skin nourishing apricot kernel oil, vitamin E and coconut oil. These are then emulsified with beeswax creating the perfect natural remedy for nappy rash and many other irritating, inflammatory skin conditions as well as non-specific itching, stretch marks and sore nipples (removed prior to nursing). Your salve can also be used externally for any vaginal tears (once healed and sutures dissolved)  sustained during birth, your c-section incision once closed, and haemorrhoids. A salve can help lessen irritation, scarring and discomfort.
