The placenta is prepared in the mother’s home over the course of two days. The placenta is steamed, dried, then ground and encapsulated to prepare the placenta in capsule form for the mother, for her own personal use during her postpartum recovery.
During the encapsulation process the placenta is steamed with herbs myrrh and ginger. The steaming water is saved in a mason jar for the mother to add to her tea and smoothies or freeze.
The umbilical cord is dried in the shape of a heart or wreath depending on the size of the cord. When dried, you can see the veins inside of the cord which is very neat. The cord is presented in a satin pouch as a keepsake for the mother. This is included in the encapsulation fee.
It takes 6 weeks to prepare a placenta tincture. A mason jar with ingredients is left with the mother to cure, along with 4oz glass amber bottle with dropper, completion instructions and dosage information.
