Following strict food safety guidelines, your placenta is fully rinsed, and most of the blood drained, before both types of encapsulation methods. The benefits are the same for both methods and which one you should choose is a personal decision. You may also choose to do 1/2 RAW and 1/2 TCM at no extra cost.

STEAMED PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION –  Also called “TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine Inspired)” and “Warm Process”: $295

This method of preparing the placenta for encapsulation involves steaming the placenta gently with herbs. I use ginger and lemon and can add cayenne pepper by request. Putting the herbs in the steaming process is thought to bring out the placenta’s natural healing properties. Lemon is thought of as an antiseptic and helps to distribute the placenta throughout the body. Ginger is a warming and soothing herb, and specifically acts as a facilitator for energy and good blood flow. TCM is believed to have tonifying, healing, and warming properties. Just like cooking any food, the steaming process causes some nutrient loss (into the water below) and the placenta shrinks a bit. Because of this, the TCM method will yield less capsules than the RAW method.

UNSTEAMED PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION – Also called “RAW ” –  “High Yield Method”  and  “Cold Process”: $295

This method of preparing the placenta for encapsulation skips the steaming process all together and is set for dehydration while still “raw.” It can be combined with TCM method so you receive half RAW and half TCM. Some people choose this method because they are raw food activists and believe the cooking or steaming process destroys some of the nutrients. One benefit to choosing the RAW method is that it provides a higher number of capsules as there is no shrinkage from the steaming process. This is why it is also called the “high yield method.”

SMOOTHIE PREPARAION: $35

Utilizing the placenta, unsteamed, directly after birth is becoming an extremely popular and important step in a new mother’s postpartum healing. You can use your favorite green or fruit smoothie recipe, or I can provide suggestions for you. A small thumbnail piece of raw placenta is easily blended in with any juice or smoothie recipe and Mother’s report that the taste of the small placenta piece is unnoticeable! If you are having a home birth, I can prepare a smoothie for you when I come by to pick up your placenta. For all birth locations, this option is available for placentas released within 48 hours after birth. 14 pieces are individually prepared, wrapped, and stored for use. This preparation yields enough for 2 smoothies a day for the first week. This is a great natural remedy for postpartum bleeding, works very rapidly, and often replaces pharmaceutical means of managing bleeding. Other benefits include rapid replacement of hormones, nutrients, and iron which aids in post partum wellness.

4oz TINCTURE: $35 {2 for $50}

The placenta tincture is another way to reap the physical benefits from the placenta besides capsule form. Tinctures are mainly meant for energy, transition, stress, and hormone stabilization. They are great for returning menstrual cycles, menopause, and even puberty. The biological mother and daughter of the birthing mom can also benefit from the tincture as it has an almost indefinite shelf life if stored properly. Mom may also give the tincture to a baby older than 6 months for teething and transition. The tincture is made from a thumbnail size piece of unsteamed placenta and 100-150 proof liquor, aged for 6 weeks postpartum and then strained. It is stored in a dropper bottle much like the Bach Flower Essences.

BROTH: $15

Placenta broth is the liquid remaining from the steaming process in the TCM method. It is made with filtered water, lemon, and ginger. After the steaming process is complete, the liquid is strained and bottled for consumption. It contains any nutrients lost during the steaming process and tastes like herbal tea. Reported benefits include an immediate energy burst, hormone balance, and feelings of well being. Mix it with your favorite lemon or ginger tea and enjoy this warm healing drink. My clients have reported a loving, bonding experience while sharing this drink with their partners.

ORGANIC HEALING SALVE8oz: $50 | 4oz: $30 | 2oz: $15

The placenta salve has many uses. It is used to heal Cesarean section incision after the wound is closed and lessen scarring, itching and discomfort. The salve can also be used as soon as 3 days postpartum for hemorrhoids, perennial tearing, burns, diaper rash, eczema, sun burns and skin irritations. It is safe for your baby as long as the baby has no skin allergies. I also make this salve with no placenta in it and it’s simply amazing! I really can not express how wonderful this recipe is. It has become a staple in my home and my children beg for it on a regular basis. It has replaced our diaper cream, chapstick, lotion, and Neosporin. I keep one in my diaper bag, one in the kitchen/livingroom, and one in the car. We can’t live without it and my friends and family feel the same way too. Ask me to bring by a sample and you will see how lovely it is!

PRINT & CORD KEEPSAKE:  FREE with purchase of encapsulation

There is no waste when preparing your placenta! I make two keepsakes to honor and commemorate the special role this amazing organ played in your precious baby’s growth, development, and birth. Placenta art is made paint free, on archival paper, and laminated. The umbilical cord is also preserved by dehydrating it into a heart, spiral, “love” or custom requested shape.Temecula Murrieta Placenta Encapsulation
