Placenta Tincture-getting the most out of your placenta

Placenta tincture is a great way to make the most of your placenta.Tinctures are remedies which are made by extracting the healing compounds of herbs or animal products with ethanol alcohol, vinegar or glycerin.

By taking a small piece of the raw placenta and soaking it in high grade alcohol for 6 weeks, I can produce a tincture that is both powerful in its effects as a remedy and extremely shelf stable. It will last indefinitely and can even be ‘watered down’ with more alcohol if necessary.

I suggest adding on a tincture to your package as a way of making the most of your placenta. You never know how your postpartum recovery will go, or how big your placenta will be. The best case scenario is that you have a big placenta, a high yield of capsules and a short recovery. But if you have a small placenta, or a longer recovery, you would certainly benefit from the extra support of a placenta tincture.

Have a look here to see what you can expect from you placenta capsules.

Number of days your placenta capsules will last if taken as suggested (6/day)

80 capsules = 13 days
100 capsules = 16 days
120 capsules = 20 days
150 capsules – 25 days

*the average yield is 100 capsules*

It’s important to know that many clients don’t actually take 6 capsules a day. They may at first but after a week or so they start taking less and less- so that often, women have the support of their placenta capsules until 30-40 days postpartum.

It’s after this that the tincture can come in handy. It’s also great for farther down the road during ‘back to work’ stresses etc, and because it’s shelf stable, it will keep it’s powerful medicinal effects for years-even into menopause where it can be used to mitigate the effects of this big hormonal shift.

The benefits of placenta tincture mirror those of placenta capsules, just in a more concentrated form. Clients report feeling an energy boost,  feeling like their mood is more stable, increased milk production and even better sleep when taking placenta tincture.

You can add a placenta tincture on to your package for just $40. It will be ready for you to pick up from my home 6 weeks after the birth of your baby.
