Placenta Encapsulation, Tinctures, Salves and Prints

Potential benefits of ingesting placenta:

*Increased milk supply

*Balances postpartum hormones

*May help prevent "baby blues" & other common postpartum mood disorders

*Increased postnatal iron levels 

*Placenta contains many bio available hormones & nutrients

*May lessen postnatal bleeding

*May help the uterus shrink back to pre pregnancy size quicker 

*Increases energy

*Combats fatigue

*Decreased after birth pains

*Decreased risk of anemia, thyroid dysfunction, & after birth infection/inflammation

*Increased sense of well being throughout the 4th trimester

ENCAPSULATION-Placenta capsules can be prepared using one of two different methods, either steamed or unsteamed (natural or "raw") method. Both methods are dehydrated at 160 degrees. The Steamed method is based on the TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) method. If you choose this method the placenta will be steamed at 135 degrees for 30 minutes and dehydrated at 160 degrees for 24 hours. The placenta can be steamed with or without your choice of herbs in the steaming water. This method will kill any potential bacteria from the birth or hospital, but may lower the amount of hormones, vitamins, and minerals retained in the placenta and will yield fewer pills.  The natural or "raw" method the placenta is dehydrated at 160 degrees for 24 hours, but it is not pre-steamed.  It is thought that the placenta retains more of the beneficial hormones,vitamins and minerals using this method and it will yield more pills. The natural preparation is not recommended if you are GBS positive at the time of the birth. If GBS positive steamed is a safer choice.

TINCTURE- Tinctures keep for many years if stored properly. This preparation can be used indefinitely for hormone balancing. The tincture can be used well after the postpartum, potentially aiding in balancing symptoms during menses and menopause. Tinctures are prepared using 100 proof alcohol and can be prepared with either raw placenta (more potent) or cooked and powdered placenta (may be a better choice if infection or meconium staining is present). Tinctures take six weeks to prepare so you have the option of having it returned with your pills package with finishing instructions, or it can be delivered/picked up separately at six weeks. My standard preparation is for 8 oz but please feel free to talk with me if you would like a larger quantity. 

SALVE- I make healing salves using beeswax, coconut oil, powdered placenta, and healing herbs. The salve can help in healing c-section sites after the wound has closed, various skin problems, and diaper rash. (Please let me know if you have any know allergies to certain herbs or oils so I can adjust the recipe accordingly)

BROTH- Only available with the steamed method the broth from the steaming of the placenta contains the potentially beneficial properties of the placenta. Broth can be added to soups/stews, smoothies, used in the water to prepare grains or vegetables etc. It needs to be refrigerated and should be used within 4 days, or alternatively it can be frozen in ice cube trays and used as needed.

PRINTS- No two placentas are ever quite the same, and prints are a interesting and artistic way to display the uniqueness of your baby's placenta! For natural prints the blood of the placenta is used as the ink. For color prints food safe coloring can be applied. Prints can be done on acid free watercolor paper, or on canvas. 

CORD KEEPSAKE- Cord keepsakes are a wonderful way to preserve and keep the umbilical cord. For keepsakes I form the cord into a decorative shape and dehydrated until it hardens.
