Remedies and Lotions

There are many ways to consume the placenta after birth all equally beneficial to new mother. You can personalise your placenta remedies and lotions in the way you choose, perhaps you would like placenta creams, placenta balms, placenta tincture, placenta essence or a placenta homeopathic remedy. Placenta remedies and lotions such as the placenta essence, placenta tincture, placenta balms, placenta creams and placenta homeopathic are made using only a small piece of placenta; each placenta remedy and lotion has their own benefit for you and your baby so its a good idea to read through all remedies and lotions to ensure you make the most out of your placenta.

The most modern non-invasive way to consume the placenta is capsule, known as placenta encapsulation. Preparing your placenta into easy-to-take placenta pills is a simple way to ensure postnatal health and vitality after you have your baby. Your placenta is unique and the perfect nourishment for your healing and rejuvenation after birth. Your placenta contains one of the highest concentrations of essential hormones, iron, B vitamins and micro-nutrients found in any plant or animal species. For this reason placenta remedies and lotions may be of a great benefit to you and your baby. If you would like your placenta to support you during your menopause its a very good idea to order the Placenta Tincture remedy.

Placenta Capsules

There are two methods for preparing the placenta for encapsulation: the first is the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) placenta method , the second is the simple placenta method. I personally recommend both placenta methods (combined placenta capsules) of placenta encapsulation as each have different properties and are used differently. The majority of my clients book the combination placenta pills as this gives them the benefit of both placenta capsules. It is a good idea to have TCM placenta capsules and simple placenta capsules as the TCM placenta capsules can not be taken at time of sickness, flu or mastitis. this would be when you would swap to consuming the simple placenta capsules Some clients are clearly drawn to one method of placenta preparation than the other and its all a matter of personal preference. Everyone is different and experience the effects in different ways, which is why is a great idea to have both as you can alternate between the two capsules depending on how you are feeling.

Each placentas hormone and mineral make up is completely unique to you and your baby. It contains your own natural hormones which is made perfectly for you which cannot compare with any over the counter supplement or pill, this is why placenta encapsulation (capsules, pills or tablets) are so unique. The placenta remedies and lotions may also help with post birth healing. Here are some testimonials from clients that have had their placenta made into placenta remedies and lotions.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) placenta capsules

The placenta is gently rinsed, prepared and steamed adding organic fresh warming herbs according to Chinese Medicine, which intended to help warm and energize you, destroy bacteria and preserve the placenta. After steaming the placenta over the herbs the placenta is sliced into strips, dehydrated and finely ground and put into vegetarian capsules. TCM placenta capsules give you a steady dose of hormones and nutrients. It is particularly good at stabilising emotions for those who have previously suffered depression or the baby blues.

TCM placenta capsules are thought to have more healing and warming properties than simple placenta capsules. The Traditional placenta capsules can be taken twice, three times a day to balance your hormones. TCM placenta capsules are stored in a jar for up to a year. If you would like a remedy that will help you through your menopause Placenta Tincture is the remedy for you. There will not be enough TCM placenta capsules to support you during your menopause. You can also make placenta essence, placenta homeopathic remedy and placenta balms from any TCM placenta capsules you have left over or decide to keep. The average amount of capsules from a placenta delivered at 40-42 weeks gestation is 140.

Simple placenta capsules

When processing a simple placenta  I simply skip the steaming process. It is thought that simple capsules contain a higher hormone content than the TCM placenta capsules, as the steaming process may destroy enzymes and diminishes the placentas nutritional value. It is said that simple placenta capsules are more energizing, however there is currently no research to suggest this is true. In preparing a simple method placenta the placenta is gently rinsed, prepared, dehydrated and finely ground and put into vegetarian capsules. It is very important that simple placenta capsules are consumed within 12 weeks. Simple placenta capsules are not to be kept.  The average amount of simple placenta capsules from a placenta delivered at 40-42 weeks gestation is 180.


Please take note that despite my best efforts for handling and processing your placenta, the simple placenta method does NOT guarantee destruction of bacteria. By choosing the simple placenta preparation, you are accepting responsibility for any possible negative outcome as a result of consuming a placenta not exposed to higher temperatures.

Combined placenta capsules

I personally reccommend the combined placenta capsules to all my placenta encapsulation clients. The placenta can be divided in half. One half is prepared into Simple placenta pills and the other half of the placenta is made into TCM placenta pills. This will provide mothers with a much wider range of differing benefits. I would strongly recommend this method of placenta encapsulation as you have the best of both worlds. The average amount of capsules from a placenta delivered at 40-42 weeks gestation is 80 Simple placenta capsules and 80 Traditional Chinese Medicine placenta capsules.

Placenta tincture

Placenta tincture is a very potent remedy and a firm favorite with all my clients due to it healing properties, versatility and ease of use. Making a placenta tincture is another way to stretch out its longevity. Placenta tincture works very well with the combination placenta capsules. Placenta tincture can be used in addition to your capsules which have different healing properties. Placenta tincture is also good to use after you have finished your placenta capsules and you are worried about finishing all your placenta capsules. Placenta tincture should only be used by the mother. However placenta tincture is a great remedy to have if you have a baby girl. This is because the placenta tincture remedy will offer all the support listed below when they go through puberty. Placenta tincture is made with 40% proof high quality alcohol. The final product is ready 8-10 weeks later. Placenta tincture lasts indefinitely when kept in a cool dark place.

Placenta tincture may:

  • great for returning menstrual cycles
  • regulating menstrual cycles
  • help naturally replace hormones during menopause
  • balance your hormones during monthly PMS

In my experience and from the placenta remedies and lotions feedback I receive from my clients the placenta remedy may help the mother by improving symptoms of emotional stress, mental weakness, postnatal depression, separation anxiety, sorrow and hormone imbalance, such as when your period returns or when weaning your baby off the breast. The homeopathic placenta remedy may also help in the future with emotional symptoms. You get about 200 lactose pilules with a potency of 30C. These are taken when symptoms are noticed.

Placenta essence

Making a placenta essence from your placenta is a very similar process to making a flower essence. A section of raw placenta is tinctured in 40% proof alcohol and then diluted. It goes through a process to create a bottle of long-lasting, immune boosting, pure placenta mother essence with a variety of uses. It is extremely helpful when your baby is unsettled, unwell or irritable. Placenta essences can be used if baby is suffering from colic and i have had many of my clients who have had their placenta made into placenta essence say that it is amazingly beneficial to a colicky baby. Placenta essence can also be used rest of the family. Placenta essence can be used like a rescue remedy which is why placenta essence is very popular. Placenta essence for adults can be taken by adding a few drops in some water when you feeling like you need a lift, placenta essence really is very powerful. For a baby or a child I recommend a drop into cool boiled water when they are under the weather.  Placenta essence is an excellent all round healer. Placenta essence can last a lifetime when kept in a cool dark place, which is why this placenta remedy is very popular.
