Encapsulation

Traditional Chinese Method

The placenta has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for many generations; believing to restore the warmth a woman has lost following birth, and therefore assisting in her body’s re-balance, promoting an equal amount of yin (cold) and yang (warmth) once more. This fine balance between yin and yang also helps with our immune system. It is believed that our body’s natural immunity, known as wei chi, is reduced post birth and is thought to be restored by adding heat.

The steaming process itself directs heat at the placenta, in addition, heat is infused into the placenta through the use of lemon, ginger and chilli. Chilli itself is warming, 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, the steaming process shrinking the placenta. From women’s testimonies to PRN it appears this method of encapsulation provides more calming effects and may reduce chances of post-natal depression.

RAW method

It is often thought that the raw method of encapsulation means that raw pieces of the placenta are somehow placed within capsules – this is not the way it works! It is instead a way of consuming the placenta without it first being steamed; some believe the nutrients may be destroyed by the heat.

Women who are looking to increase their energy levels after birth are likely to benefit from raw capsules. Another benefit is that a higher yield of capsules will mean they can be consumed over a longer period.


Essence

The essence of your placenta holds a tremendous power to heal you and your child. An essence heals on an energetic or vibrational level, stimulating our vital force. The raw placenta is tinctured in distilled water. After steeping for about 4 hours in a well-lit room, the placenta is strained off and enough drinking alcohol is added to create half alcohol/half placenta water. This creates a long-lasting, pure placenta “mother” essence with a variety of uses. It can be use during times of transition, illness, stress, emotional upheaval or hormonal imbalance. Store in a cool dry place, placenta essence should last indefinitely.

Tincture

Placenta Tincture is made from a piece of the mother’s raw placenta after birth and is useful for all sorts of hormonal balancing from PMS to menopause. It is left to process in high grade vodka for a minimum of 6 weeks. Once the piece of placenta is has sat for 6 weeks, the rest of the process is completed and ready for pick up.
