Putting safety first is the top priority for me no matter which method of placenta encapsulation you choose. There are two main methods of placenta encapsulation, herbal method, and raw method. Whichever method you choose, my cleaning and sanitation practices are the same and comply with OSHA standards. I have my Florida Food Handler Safety certification as well as Bloodborne Pathogens and Infection Control for Placenta Encapsulators certification. All materials that come in contact with your placenta are either able to be thoroughly sanitized or are disposable. I only use disposable towels, sponges and cutting boards. Because we live in humid Florida, your capsules will come with a food-safe desiccant pack in them. This is the package found in many items that says “Do not eat”. I take this extra precaution to help keep any moisture out of your capsules to avoid spoilage.
