Placenta tincture is made from a piece of the mother’s own raw placenta steeped in a high grade alcohol over 6 to 8 weeks. If the fresh placenta is not available a tincture can also be made from 5 or 6 placenta capsules. It has a long shelf life if kept in a cool dark place such as a cupboard.
Placenta tincture is an added bonus because it can be used in addition to and long after your placenta capsules are gone. A tincture prolongs the benefits of your placental hormones. It is said that placenta tincture is supportive to the mother emotionally, mentally and promotes psychological stability. A placenta tincture may also be very beneficial in supporting a healthy feminine hormonal balance which can support fertility, help avoid PMS and ease the symptoms of menopause. The placenta tincture can be used for both mother and child in any time of trauma, transition or emotional distress as well as support the body in healing from any illness.
Dosage is 7 – 10 drops of tincture in a full glass of liquid (juice, water, milk etc.). At this dilution this supplement has less alcohol in it than cough medicine.
When your tincture is running low the hormonal benefits are renewed through a process similar to the one used to create it. The ability to renew your tincture, if desired, extends the healing benefits indefinitely without additional placenta. Specific instructions on this process will be included with your tincture.
