~ Steamed: This preparation focuses more on the emotional energy, though mothers have found that it has a positive impact on the physical energy as well. It is safe to use for frozen placentas.
~ Raw: This preparation focuses more on the physical energy, though mothers have found that it has a positive impact on the emotional energy as well. This method requires that the placenta be very fresh, but this method maintains the protein and enzymes that naturally occur.This method yields more capsules.
~ Half-and-half: Having both types of capsules on hand allows you to choose which energy you would like to boost! For moms who would like to have both types of capsules on hand, we will steam half and leave the other half raw.
If you're having a hard time deciding, we have found there really is no bad choice.

Tincture (DIY) - A tincture can be used later when mother's menses return, when her daughter begins her cycle, and during other times of stress (illness, teething). It requires a 6 week period for steeping so when it is returned to you it will not be ready for use. You will need to swirl it daily and strain it when it is ready.
Homeopathic - For those ordering a tincture, we can also prepare a homeopathic remedy. We make this to 40c; each dilution and succussion represents one week of pregnancy. This is your child's constitutional remedy and helps anytime he is "off" - be it physically or emotionally. This is often helpful for mother and siblings as well. We will store the 37c so that refills may be made.
Essence - This is similar to how a Bach Flower is made; this is considered "energy" medicine. It becomes your baby's personal Rescue Remedy, to use anytime baby is off, be it emotionally or physically. Moms, dads, and siblings can also benefit from this remedy. It only takes a small piece of placenta to make enough essence to last a life time (or four). We highly recommend this tool.
Calming Spray - For those ordering an essence, we can also make a calming spray. This has the placenta essence, Rescue Remedy, and therapeutic grade lavender oil with distilled water in a glass spray bottle. It can be used in a room to keep the atmosphere calm and pleasant. It can also be used to spray around family members for a grounding effect.
We enjoy offering these gifts to our clients:
~ Prints - The fetal side of the placenta looks like a tree, which is very fitting. This is a simple keepsake for your baby's first "friend" in the womb. Some parents like to keep their placenta prints with their baby book.
~ Cord Keepsake - We dehydrate the cord in a spiral or other shape. This can be used as part of a blessingway, it can be buried as part of a growing up ceremony, or can be kept as a reminder of the strong connection between mother and child.
~ Images and Notes - While working on your placenta, we take pictures and note weights as well as other data. This information is shared to you.
