Tea & Tincture for Placenta Encapsulation Service with Tara, CPES.
Serving new mothers in Vermont since 2011.
Placenta tea and tincture are provided as part of my encapsulation service at no additional cost. They are used in conjunction with capsules and contain similar benefits for times of hormonal shifts; like having a baby 🙂
You will receive a handout on the day of service with suggested dosages and ways to use the tea and tincture.
Even moms who swear they won’t drink the tea, end up doing so and say they are glad to have done so. I think we become more our primal selves after giving birth and things like ‘placenta tea’ sound completely logical.
The tea is 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 days after birth. Remaining tea is frozen into ice cube trays that I bring and placed in a labeled Ziploc bag for when you want a quick lift.
I am thrilled to sip 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 baby and the tea is what I need. Thank you for this experience. ~ B.L., Burlington
A tincture is made by pouring alcohol over dried placenta and steeped in a cool, dark spot for 6 weeks. This medicinal home remedy can be used as a lifetime constitutional remedy for mom 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 save it for down the road during menopause. The tincture can help baby with colic, teething, and diaper rash (mix drops into salve) or save for times of transition or distress (i.e. going to day-care or school, separation anxiety), or common childhood illnesses like a cough.
Fee: There is no additional charge for tea or tincture.
