The Encapsulation Process

The encapsulation process is a ritual that is done with great honor and reverence by people that choose to offer this service. It is most often passed along through oral (and observant) tradition.

I think the reverence and love that is put into the process adds all the more love and good juju to the placenta remedy.

The basic steps include:

A photo or ink blot type print of the placenta tree of life. (Not everyone does this step).

Cutting, draining the chord for the mother/family to do as they please. (Not every does this step).

Steaming the placenta with warming herbs to aid in the warming effects according to Chinese medicine to (build up chi)

Slicing the placenta after steamed, and dehydrated.

Grinding the dehydrated placenta to then

Encapsulate.
