Maybe you had your placenta encapsulated by a professional, or did your own like I did. Either way, you probably have a lot of leftover placenta pills and are wondering how to use up some of them. I came up with this heavenly scented, luxuriously soft whipped body butter recipe using placenta powder. Benefits of the body butter may include:

  • Reduces signs of aging
  • Reduces inflammation from eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis
  • Reduces appearance of stretch marks
  • Heal sore or cracked nipples from breastfeeding

For use on:

  • Cesarean and other surgical incisions (closed and non-draining)
  • Cradle cap
  • Diaper rash (cloth diaper safe)
  • Perineal tears
  • Cuts and scrapes

Using Placenta Pills

Whipped Body Butter Using Placenta Pills


  • 1/2 cup shea butter (where to find) Note: This Amazon seller has the absolute best customer service skills!
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (where to find)
  • 1/2 cup jojoba oil or almond oil (where to find)
  • 1/2 cup cacao butter (where to find)
  • 5 placenta pills
  • 20-30 drops of your favorite essential oils (I use lemon, lavender, thieves, and peace & calming)


  1. In a glass bowl, combine all ingredients except placenta pills and essential oils
  2. Fill a larger glass bowl with very hot water
  3. Set smaller glass bowl inside bowl of hot water, making sure not to get any water into your mixture. Alternately, you can use a double boiler and stir over medium heat. 
  4. Stir gently until all is melted and emulsified. Remove from heat.
  5. Once cooled, put in fridge until it thickens. This should take about an hour.
  6. Add essential oils and contents of placenta pills. Using a hand mixer, mix until fluffy. This should take about 10 minutes. You will think that there is no way this stuff is going to get fluffy. I promise you–the magic starts to happen at about 8 minutes in! My husband said, “That looks like whipped cream!”
  7. Store in a glass jar(where to buy) at a temperature below 75 degrees. Any lower than that and it will soften but will still work! Use like any lotion.

  2. Does this need to be stored in a glass jar or is it possible to store it in a dark plastic? Such as the amber or Colbalt Blue containers. I’m looking up container options and wanted to see if it was just a suggestion or if there was a reason as to why it needs to be glass. Thanks!
