How does encapsulation help a postpartum woman?
A woman’s life after childbirth is an amazing and unique time period, full of changes and challenges. Placenta Encapsulation can provide an extra boost for mothers after childbirth, improving their overall post-birth experience as they adjust to life with a new baby. It is an honor to work with new families and provide them access to this precious support to aid in their healing and recovery.

bonding of mother and infant.
- THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE boosts energy.
- CORTISONE combats stress and unlocks energy stores.

What is Tincture?
By tincturing a small piece of placenta in high-grade alcohol, you can prolong the benefits of your placenta hormones. The tincture can be used in any time of trauma, transition, emotional distress or hormone changes to ease your symptoms. The tincture is allowed to sit for at least 6 weeks before use. It is shelf stable and if kept in a cool, dark place will last for many, many years.
What is the Salve?
Your own superfine placenta powder is infused into a high quality salve base, with or without your choice of essential oils. We use a luxurious organic base as our carrier because it is non-sensitizing, good smelling, food based, and can penetrate deep under the surface of the skin. Placenta salve can be used for: Cesarean scars, perineal tears (wait until stitches dissolve), diaper rash, and as a general healing and skin-care salve.
