Placenta capsules & tincture

PLACENTA TINCTURE

A placenta tincture may be made in addition to your placenta capsules.

It’s made from taking a very small portion (pea size) of the raw or steamed placenta and placing it in a prepared solution of high grade alcohol to steep for a minimum of 6 weeks.

After this time it is strained off to create the 100ml tincture. This is then posted out to you. Tinctures can be used once your placenta capsules are finished, in any time of emotional distress, transition, hormonal imbalance or illness.

Stored in a cool, dark place the tincture will remain shelf-stable for many years. 


Tinctures are an additional $60.

PLACENTA PRINT

Placenta prints are also available in addition to the placenta encapsulation service. 

The print is taken using the fetal side of the placenta; with it’s often dominant vessel structures and umbilical cord.

Placenta prints may be produced using the natural raw colour of the placenta (dries as red/brown) or using natural food-safe colours (orange, green, red, purple).

These food-safe colours wash off easily before the placenta is processed for encapsulation.

The paper used for all prints is artist quality, 185gsm medium surfaced watercolour paper, approx 29cm x 42cm (A3 size).

More examples of prints can often be seen on the BodyWise BirthWise Instagram account.

Prices vary from $30.00 to $50.00.

UMBILICAL CORD KEEPSAKE

A cord keepsake can be included along with your placenta capsules.

These are optional and free of charge.

The cord can be dried into various shapes e.g. heart, spiral, circle or baby’s first initial.

When held up to the light, the 3 cord vessels can be seen within the dried Wharton’s jelly of the cord. 

More examples of cord keepsakes can often be seen on the BodyWise BirthWise Instagram account. All results vary.
