Placenta mother tincture

Written by FairyDoula. Posted in Natural Medicine, Placenta Medicine

Your placenta is an amazing organ, made from you, inspired by your baby to create, feed and sustain your baby and yourself to Birth and beyond.

A placenta mother tincture is your very own hormonally-focused life remedy. It balances your hormones and creates physical and mental wellbeing in you and your baby after Birthing.

This medicine is ancient, the Mother’s primary tool in the medicinal care of herself and her family. Sadly in recent times the medical industry and the pharmaceutical industry have colluded to separate the Mother from her personally-powered medicine chest, telling her that it is rubbish, leftovers, a biohazard!

I have been preparing placentas for over a decade now, and sadly most medical staff still recoil in horror at the thought of anything to do with the placenta and its medicinal benefits. In past times when the housewife and mother had the primary role of healing and caring for family members, placenta remedies were considered a true treasure. Happily people are once again becoming interested. I am so glad! This ancient knowledge should not be lost with the changing living conditions of today’s families, when it can give so much!

I hope someday soon a nurse, doctor or midwife will ask me about Placenta Medicine and actually listen with interest as the wise mothers and fathers do!

HOW TO MAKE A PLACENTA MOTHER TINCTURE

It is very simple!

Take a teaspoon sized piece of Placenta, from the side connected to Mamma for the Mamma medicine and from the end of the umbilical cord for the Baby medicine.

Place in a sterile jar filled with 40 % proof alcohol ( rum is good ), leave in The Sun and Moon ( 24hrs), strain the mixture through a muslin cloth and place in a dark glass bottle. Take a sterile dark glass dropper bottle, half fill with spring water and half with alcohol, then add 13 drops of tincture . You have now made your own Placenta Mother Essence. Well done! Be well!
