Placenta tea and tincture are provided as part of my service at no additional cost. Both are used in conjunction with capsules and contain similar benefits; helping 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 sip on this nourishing tea. My baby is 2 days old and Tara is in my kitchen making capsules, gorgeous prints, and tincture. I’m resting and the tea is just what I need. Thank you for this wonderful experience. B.L., Burlington
Made by pouring alcohol over dried and powdered placenta, the tincture is left to steep in a cool, dark spot for 6 weeks. This medicinal remedy is used as a lifetime constitutional remedy for you and baby to calm nerves, soothe fears, relieve pms, and ease 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 take a portion of tincture to an herbalist and have them made into homeopathic sugar pellets.
Tincture can be used anytime hormones are out of whack (i.e. anxiety, stress, irritability) or reserve for when menstrual period returns. You can also save for when you hit menopause! Tincture can be given to baby for colic, teething, and rash (mix into salve) or save for when older, during times of distress (i.e. going to day-care or school, separation anxiety), or for common childhood illnesses like coughing.
Fee: There is no additional charge for tea or tincture.
