Placenta Tincture

Please ensure you have read and understand our disclaimer.

Placenta Tincture is made from a piece of the mother’s own raw placenta after birth, steeping in alcohol making a strong remedy over 6 weeks.  It is said that placenta tincture is used for emotional, mental and psychological instability and may also be very beneficial for treating PMS and menopause.

  1. bottle of placenta tincture Take all or part of the fresh placenta and blending it with a quality vodka or brandy.
  2. This mixture is stored in a glass mason jar for 6 weeks in a cool dark environment, vacillate (give the jar a swirl) every day.
  3. The final product is made by straining off the placenta solids.  We have found this is easy to do using a funnel and an unbleached coffee filter.
  4. The final product is a potent tincture which can also be used to success into a homeopathic placenta remedy.    (For more information including a step-by-step guide for preparing your own homeopathic placental remedy visit Moonsong)
