For centuries the placenta has received ceremonial handling by many cultures around the world. In western medicine the human placenta is usually regarded as nothing more than human waste. Revered for its symbolism of life, spirit and individuality, it is often buried outside. Some people even promote cooking and eating it as a celebration of birth and a source of rich nutrients.

Placenta Products:

TCM Placenta Encapsulation:

Inspired by the Traditional Chinese Medicine method of preparation involves cleaning the placenta, gently heating the placenta with herbs, lemon, cayenne pepper and fresh ginger and then dehydrating the placenta before it is put into capsules. Using this preparation is thought to bring out the placentas healing and tonifying properties.

This service includes a prenatal meet & greet, picking up your placenta, encapsulation, cord keepsake, informational packet, delivery of placenta capsules and postpartum follow-up.

 

RAW Placenta Encapsulation:

The RAW methode of preparation skips the heating and herbal process altogether. Raw food activists believe that steaming the placenta destroys some of the essential nutrients. Using this option provides a burst of energy upfront and great hormone stabilization.

This service includes prenatal meet & greet, coming to your house, encapsulation, cord keepsake, informational packet and a postpartum follow up.

  

Placenta capsules can be made out of gelatine free/vegetarian capsules.

 

Placenta Smoothie:

Having a fruit smoothie with a bit of raw placenta added gives the mother a great energy boost, satisfies post-birth thirst and hunger while providing the immediate benefits of the placenta. The smoothie tastes no different than a regular, placenta-free smoothie. You have your choice of fruit and also dairy/vegan.

A great starter while you are waiting for your capsules to arrive.

 

Placenta Tincture:

Putting part of your placenta in tincture form is another way to stretch out its longevity. A small portion of placenta is added to 100 proof alcohol and set to ferment for 6 weeks. Some of the benefits include hormone stabilization in your postpartum cycles, less bleeding during those cycles, energy and for menopause years down the road.

The female child can also benefit from placental tincture once she begins her menstruation cycles.

 

Placenta Salve:

A salve or balm made of your placenta and a variety of healing herbs and oils offers healing properties to c-section scars, haemmorrhoids, perineal tearing, cracked or blistered nipples, eczema, sun burn, diaper rash, skin irritation and more. You have the option to choose which herbs are added to your salve such as lavender, chamomile or vanilla.

Think of the salve as a super healing, natural triple antibiotic ointment!
