Placenta prints are a precious form of keepsake for families wanting to artistically capture that memory. This consists of a blood print of your placenta on quality watercolor paper. If you are just wanting a print and you will not be consuming your placenta there are other options for your print like paint and watercolors that we can discuss.
A salve is something that you would use externally for skin issues, rashes, scrapes, cuts or burns. It is not intended for the use on a cesarean birth incision, episiotomy, or sore and cracked nipples. There are no preservatives in a salve so it should be refrigerated or used within two weeks. This can also be made without placenta powder.
A tincture is a highly concentrated liquid that contains placenta powder. It works by penetrating the mucus membrane, therefore it is fast acting. Tinctures need to be made with a menstruum, which is a solvent used to extract the properties of the placenta. In this case a 60 or more proof vodka will act as our menstruum as it is the strongest, has the longest shelf life and acts as an excellent preservative. This takes 6 weeks to mature and is used be placing a few drops under the tongue or in water as needed.
*please let us know if you are gluten free as a different vodka will be used*
