Placenta Release Tincture


Herb Lore’s Placenta Release Tincture is used to help expel the placenta after baby’s birth. 

Not for use in pregnancy until the birth.

The Placenta Release Tincture contains organic:

  • Angelica (Archangelica)
  • Red Raspberry Leaf
  • Blue Cohosh
  • Yarrow
  • Shepherd’s Purse

Angelica is a powerful emmenagogue and uterine stimulant that is typically quite successful in releasing even a fully-adhered placenta.  Do not confuse Archangelica with Angelica Sinensis (Dong Quai).  Dong Quai can exacerbate bleeding.  The Angelica Archangelica is a much better choice for third stage use.  Red Raspberry Leaf helps to facilitate placenta delivery and helps keep the uterus working strongly and smoothly.  Blue Cohosh is an oxytocic herb, helping the uterus to contract and clamp down, while the Yarrow is a powerful styptic herb (helps to stop bleeding).  Shepherd’s Purse not only helps stop bleeding but it helps promote uterine contractions as well.  These uterine contractions will help detach the placenta from the uterine wall and clamp off the exposed blood vessels. 

Suggestions for use:
Give 1-2 droppersful (squeezes) of the tincture to help detach and expel the placenta.  Continue to give 1-2 droppersful every 5-15 minutes until the placenta is delivered.
