Placenta Remedies

Liz Purnell-Webb "A Mother's Touch" founder and trainer of Placenta Remedies in Hong Kong

Since 2010, A Mothers Touch bought the knowledge of Placenta Remedies to Hong Kong from the UK where Liz Purnell-Webb trained under IPEN (Independent Placenta Encapsulation Network) as a Specialist and Trainer. Being the first to bring this to Hong Kong, Liz has worked with the hospitals in Hong Kong to ensure that the strict regulatory ordinances are adhered to. Liz is a committee member of the PRN  UK (Placenta Remedies Network) for the international branch to endeavour to make sure that Placenta Encapsulation and remedies are processed under the highest safety standards to protect and benefit both mother and baby.


Placenta Encapsulation

The capsules are designed for easy consumption throughout your six-week healing post birth.

The encapsulation process can be done in your own home either by you or by a qualified Encapsulation Specialist or if you wish this process can be completed in the specialists' designated kitchen.

Capsules are made from your placenta with NO added ingredient

Steamed Method

NOTE: not recommended with tradition Chinese confinement 50/50 is recommended

  • the placenta is steamed with lemon, ginger and chilli to balance the Chi & Yang in the body similar to ancient eastern medicine

  • dehydrated using a food dehydrator or oven for 8-10 hours until crisp then ground and pack into vegetable capsules

  • although powerful, it is believed to offer a gentler energy

Simple Method

Must be kept refrigerated

  • simple (Raw) placenta dehydration has shown this is the best way to get the maximum hormones and nutrients. 

  • using this method the placenta is not steamed but sliced raw and using a food dehydrator for 10-16 hours until crisp, then ground and pack into vegetable capsules

  • this method offers stronger energy.

50/50 Method

  • for those who would like to take advantage of both methods.

  • the raw capsules are recommended to take during the crucial healing time following the six weeks after birth

  • the steamed capsules can then follow offering ongoing support in the following months

Additional Placenta Remedies

Essence, Tincture, Cream, Balm & Oil

Placenta ‘Mother’ Essence

An essence is exactly that, it is the essence, the intrinsic nature, the soul, the fundamental quality of a particular person, place, or substance. The essence of your placenta holds a tremendous power to heal you and your child. An essence heals on an energetic or vibrational level, stimulating our vital force.

Dosage: It can be used during times of transition, illness, stress, emotional upheaval or hormonal imbalance. Suggested dosage is 1-4 drops in water. Store in a cool dry place, placenta essence should last indefinitely.

  • ​stimulate the ‘vital force’

  • help in times of distress, imbalance

  • give energy and strength when ill

  • keep indefinitely if stored properly

Placenta Tincture

Placenta Tincture is made from a piece of the mother’s own raw placenta after birth, steeping in alcohol making a strong remedy over 6 weeks.  It is said that placenta tincture is used for emotional, mental and psychological instability and may also be very beneficial for treating PMS and menopause.

  • Store your mason jar or amber glass jar in a cool, dark place, it will last indefinitely.  Fill a small tinted dropper glass jar for daily use.  (use a rinsed echinecea dropper bottle or similar)

  • Dosage: Suggested dosage is 10-40 drops in water two to three times a day during times of need.  It is not a remedy suited to ongoing daily use

Placenta Creams and Balms



  • the placenta is rich in oestrogen which builds collagen in the skin and progesterone which inhibits the breakdown of collagen, normal leading to wrinkles as we age. Sheep and cow and even human placentas are frequently used in commercially available anti-ageing creams.

  • you now have the opportunity to have a homemade skin care product made with your own placenta. A rich base-cream is infused with your placenta oil and a few drops of Rose or Lavender essential oil to produce a luxurious face cream. Effective on dry skin conditions. 

  • BALM

  • placenta balm is the perfect natural remedy for nappy rash and many other irritating, inflammatory skin conditions as well as non-specific itching.

  • balm can also be used effectively to reduce the signs of scar tissue. 

  • kept refrigerated, placenta balm will retain its healing properties for up to 
    12 month
