Placenta encapsulation is the process of preparing the mother’s placenta after the birth of her baby(ies) by dehydrating the placenta, grinding it into a powder, and placing it into consumable capsules to be ingested by the mother. The ingestion of the placenta is known as ‘placentophagy’. The purpose of placentophagy by the mother is to reintroduce the beneficial vitamins, minerals, hormones, proteins, and other nutrients to her body following her labor and birth to help restore a more balanced body function and to aid in the transition between pregnancy and the early postpartum period. Potential benefits include hormone balancing and mood stabilization, restoration of nutrients, iron level increase, energy level boost, encouragement of healthy milk supply, aids in womb healing and postpartum bleeding. Think of your capsules like any other vitamins or supplements; sometimes we don’t feel the benefits, but our body is still benefiting from them.

Salves are soothing or medicinal mixtures made from herbs, infused oils, and waxes. For this healing salve, a base is made using your choice of beeswax or candelilla wax. Then, a piece of your placenta is ground into powder and mixed with your choice of olive or almond oil to make an infusion with calendula and comfrey. Once the oil is infused, it is then mixed with the wax and allowed time to cool. Useful for perineal tears, hemorrhoids, cracked or sore nipples, diaper rash, cuts, scrapes, burns, eczema, common skin irritations, and more.
Tinctures are highly concentrated herbal extract liquids made from soaking an herbal substance in alcohol, vegetable glycerin, vinegar, or oil. For a placenta tincture, a small piece of your placenta is soaked in plain or flavored vodka. This will take 6 weeks until fully ready. It must sit in a cool, dark place and be shaken a few times a week. Potential benefits include hormone balance/stabilization, increased energy, mood stabilization, reduced PMS symptoms, reduced menopause symptoms, help with transition, trauma, and emotional distress (weaning, growth spurts, etc.), ease from anxiety and emotional distress, indigestion relief, decreased insomnia and sleep issues, help with childhood infections and rashes, help ease cold like ailments (cough, stuffy nose, etc.), and reducing colic and teething pains.

Homeopathics address the vibrational, energetic realm of the body in addition to the physical. They are meant to work with the body to restore itself and improve overall health. Using dilution and succussion, they become so potentized it is impossible to have any trace of the original substance within the remedy. Homeopathic Placenta humanum is potentized to 40C to symbolize the weeks of pregnancy. It is unique because it contains your child’s blueprint of their energetic make up. This makes it their constitutional remedy for life. It also helps connect you back to your source when you’re feeling disconnected (think of being connected to the placenta, which is a baby’s life force). These remedies can be helpful for both a mother and child throughout life. Uses for mom include mood stabilization, emotional regulation, baby blues, depression, mental weakness, issues with the uterus, menstruation, hormonal issues, and pregnancy issues (such as the placenta not growing properly, postpartum hemorrhage, etc.). Uses for baby/child include bringing calmness during emotional challenges, relieving symptoms of emotional distress, feeling unsafe, fussiness, separation, transition, colic, teething, growth pains, immune system booster, and coming back to wholeness and health
