Your placenta will be processed according to Traditional Methods or from Raw. The choice is yours.
The Traditional method of placenta encapsulation is based loosely on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Your placenta is gently steamed, then dried and encapsulated. This method is believed to be warming and replenishing to the postpartum body and circulatory system, and more supportive of mood.
The Raw method of placenta encapsulation is based in the principles of the Raw Foods movement. Your placenta is prepared for dehydration from the raw state. Your placenta must be very fresh. It is dehydrated at a higher temperature for the first hour or so to discourage the growth of bacteria, then lowered to below 115F for the rest of the dehydration time. This method is believed to better preserve vital enzymes. It is also believed to provide more of an energy boost.
A simple RAW method can also be done. With this method your placenta will be dehydrated directly from a raw state at a higher temperature to discourage growth of bacteria. If you do not specify a method of your choice, this is the type of preparation we will do for you.
Your Encapsulation Service includes pickup of your placenta and delivery of finished capsules, approximately 90-150+ capsules depending on the size of your placenta, your umbilical cord prepared and dried, a jar of tincture, and recommendations for storage and daily dosages. Placenta Salve is also available.
Placenta salve is a thick balm/cream made by infusing a small amount of your dehydrated placenta with coconut oil, grape seed or olive oil or Sweet almond Oil, beeswax and an essential oil for scent. Benefits of using the salve may include:
reduce the appearance of c-section scarring
-reduce the appearance of stretch marks
-heal sore or cracked nipples from breast feeding
-reduce skin inflammation from eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis
-reduce the appearance of aging skin eg. lines, veins, sun-spots, wrinkles
-reduce inflammation for babies with diaper rash or eczema
