Making Herbal Capsules

To make capsules using dry, powdered herbs fill two piece gelatin capsules with herbs. You can do this either by hand or you can use a capsule filler as pictured below.

You can use your capsules in a variety of ways:
  • Swallow with water or juice
  • Dissolve one or two capsules in tea or hot water and drink
  • Open one or two capsules and use the powder in infusions, decoctions, tinctures or poultices
