A tincture is a solution that contains a small portion of placenta (either Raw or TCM) in a high alcohol content solution either vodka or brandy. The tincture process takes 6 wks to reach full potency. Many women report that their tinctures offer benefits such as stress relief for both mother and baby, energy booster, hormone and menstrual cycle stabiliser and, at a later stage in life, relief of some menopausal symptoms. I have used the tincture for my own babies during times of stress such as teething, weaning, when irritated/unsettled and generally unwell.
The tincture is not to be used on a daily basis, just when required.
Dropper bottles are provided, mothers 6-8 drops under the tongue and babies are 2-4 drops under the tongue.
