Placenta tea and tincture are provided as part of encapsulation service at no additional cost. They are used in conjunction with your capsules and contain similar benefits; both help during times of hormonal shifts; such as having a baby 🙂
You will receive a handout on the day of service with suggested dosages and ideas on how to use your tea and tincture.
Even moms who swear they won’t drink the tea, end up doing so and tell me they are glad they did. Who knows, but I think that something primal happens after a woman gives birth that makes odd things like drinking ‘placenta tea’ sound like a good idea.
The tea is simply placenta broth steeped with lactation-friendly herbs (i.e. spearmint, fennel), lightly sweetened with honey, and poured into a disposable cup that can be drunk in the days after birth. Any remaining tea is frozen into ice cube trays that I bring and placed in a labeled Ziploc bag that can be used anytime you want a quick lift.
I am thrilled to be sipping on this nourishing tea. I am two days postpartum and today is encapsulation day, along with gorgeous prints and tincture. I am resting in bed with my baby and the tea is just what I needed. Thank you for this wonderful experience. ~ B.L., Burlington
A tincture is made by pouring alcohol over some of the dried placenta and left to steep in a cool, dark spot for 6 weeks. This medicinal home remedy can be used as a lifetime constitutional remedy for both you and baby and is especially helpful at calming nerves, soothing fears, pms relief, and easing digestive troubles.
Placenta tincture is a way to extend many of the same benefits that capsules provide; especially after they are gone because tincture lasts a long time when stored properly. You can also take a portion of your tincture to a local herbalist and have them made into homeopathic sugar pellets.
The tincture can be used anytime your hormones are out of whack (i.e. stressed, anxious, irritable) or reserved for when your menstrual period returns. You can even save it for down the road when moving through menopause. The tincture can help baby with colic, teething, and diaper rash (mix drops into salve) or be saved for when they are older, during times of transition or distress (i.e. going to day-care or school, separation anxiety), or for common childhood illnesses like a cough.
Fee: There is no additional charge for tea or tincture.
