The method of placenta preparation used, is Inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine & follows the preparation of lightly steaming the placenta before dehydration, unless raw method is requested. Organic ingredients are steamed together with the placenta to help aid in digestion, and promote warming for the mother/birth parent. The placenta is then thinly sliced, dehydrated, & ground into a fine powder. The powder is then placed into capsules.
Traditional method Benefits:
- Dehydrating the placenta, sustains essential nutrients & makes the beneficial properties of the placenta more available.

Placenta Tinctures - $30
(Only available with purchase of encapsulation services)
Placenta tinctures are another way to utilize the beneficial components of your placenta. A tincture is made by taking a very small portion of the placenta & placing it in high grade drinking alcohol. This mixture is then kept in a cool, dark environment for 6 weeks. The final product is a very potent tincture. It can have more alcohol added in the future to continue the beneficial properties. Placenta tincture is useful for hormonal balancing and in extending your placenta therapy.
Complete instructions are provided when services are rendered.
