Placenta has been included in anti-ageing creams for years – and it is one of our most popular services as mums are becoming more aware of the benefits of using placenta face creams! Celebrities frequently rave to the public about using their own placenta to make a cream that is full of regenerative cells – leading to a reduction in blemishes and wrinkles, whilst giving a brighter appearance. It’s no wonder why pharmaceutical companies don’t want you to know about the benefits of placentas – especially when you create your own bespoke ingredient with each birth!!
Using a base cream containing shea butter, calendula oil, grapeseed oil, beeswax and lavender oil (this can be changed to an alternative if required) – which will be later blended with a placenta infused oil to provide Oestrogen (collagen boosting) and Progesterone (which inhibits the breakdown of collagen) improving the elasticity of the skin and preventing wrinkles.
Okay – so let’s be clear – this is not an entire placenta blended into a pulp for you to drink!
Instead, a small portion of pre-prepared placenta is whizzed in with organic fruit and berries, usually apple, banana and mixed berries (but can be adjusted to suit your taste) before being consumed immediately. The “raw” state of this preparation means that mums get an “instant hit”. Many mums report earlier milk supply, less bleeding, and better hormonal balance leading to them feeling less emotional on days 2/3 following birth.
Placenta Tincture is ideal for long term use and has real benefits in balancing hormones so is very useful for helping to overcome emotional and psychological instability. This can be kept for future use to help treat PMS and Menopause and is therefore recommended for mothers who know that this will be their last pregnancy. A small portion of your placenta is teased away from the main part which will be saved whilst the rest is encapsulated. It is then placed in alcohol where it is steeped for 6 weeks whilst being vacillated each day and stored safely till it is ready for collection.
Tinctures can also be used to create homeopathic remedies for use by both you and your child throughout your lives, during times of transition, illness, teething or stress – a constitutional remedy that is unique to you both. We work with our experienced homeopath who will return two remedies to you 30C for the mother and 7C for the baby.
Balms are a beautiful gift for us to create for use by both you and your baby. Using simple ingredients to keep your balm as natural as possible, calendula oil, beeswax and lavender essential oil will provide you with a beautiful ointment to soothe any irritated skin or nappy rash. Your babies very own branded skincare!
