The placenta is thought to be rich in nutrients that the mother needs to recover more readily from childbirth. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory, birth leaves an open, empty space within one's self, which is very yin, or cold. The practice of gently steaming the placenta creates warm energy or yang. By incorporating steam and warming herbs in the process, the final result is warming, tonifying, and nourishing during the initial postpartum period.
The method of placenta preparation used follows the preparation of lightly steaming the placenta before dehydration. Organic ingredients are steamed together with the placenta to help aid in digestion and promote warming for the mother/birth parent. The placenta is then thinly sliced, dehydrated, and ground into a fine powder. The powder is then placed into capsules.

Placenta tinctures are another way to utilize the beneficial components of your placenta. A tincture is made by taking a very small portion of the placenta and placing it in high grade drinking alcohol. This mixture is then kept in a cool, dark environment for 6 weeks. The final product is a very potent tincture. It can have more alcohol added in the future to continue the beneficial properties. Placenta tincture is useful for hormonal balancing and in extending your placenta therapy.
