Pam's tinctures, blog posts and Q&As have been such a Godsend as I've navigated the ups and downs of motherhood this year, and I am so deeply grateful for all that she does! I first discovered her products at Healthy Horizons in Burlingame when I was starting to get recurrent plugged ducts while trying to breastfeed my daughter, and my lactation consultant recommended Herb Lore's Poke Root tincture to me. It was hugely helpful in clearing up any plugs that I had going on, but unfortunately they started recurring more and more frequently and I eventually had to make the decision to wean my baby off and dry up the milk I was producing. I then switched to Herb Lore's Sage Tincture which helped me dry up safely, while continuing to nurse my baby as long as I could. After that I discovered her other non-alcohol based tinctures including Astragalus, Echinacea, Cold & Flu, Quiet Cough and also her Teething Tincture, and I love that I now have a natural, drug-free way to protect my family from all the germs and flu viruses around us especially during flu season. And of course with my baby's teething pains! Pam and her guidance, information and herbal tinctures have now become such a big part of my family's life and health that I don't know what I'd do without her. Thank you Pam! RJ
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
- 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.
This product is a favorite of Robin Lim, midwife and director of Bumi Sehat Birth Center in Bali, Indonesia and CNN's Person of the Year 2013.
