lol it was probably mine. Placenta essence is like a homeopathic tonic - you take however many drops under your tongue however many times a day to help with PPD, PP bleeding, ect. It's a variation of encapsulating the placenta (which is a variation of eating the placenta) so that you can utilize the nutrients that are in it. Placenta tonic is made by cutting a large piece of placenta and soaking it in vodka and distilled water in direct sunlight for three or four days. If it's something you're interested in I could get you the exact recipe. Hope this helped

Wow! Ok!

See I am SUCH a newbie to all of this stuff that I am somewhat taken back.

but I know that different societies do different things when it comes to birth and such.. it's kinda interesting.

I will go a searching for that recipe here in just a bit, my brain is functioning on less than half power today - I'm trying to ward off a sinus infection (it's actually going rather well) and sore throat and for some reason (maybe all the vitamin C?) I'm in a bit of a stupor.

Edited to say that the link is http://www.unhinderedliving.com/placentaessence.html
