Making Herbal Tablets

To make easy to swallow tablets from your favorite herbs mix dried, powdered herbs with a binder such as honey, pectin, gelatin or natural gums. Adjust your mixture until it is the consistency of bread dough. Once your herbal mixture is the right consistency use a tablet press to form tablet.

There are various kinds of tablet presses designed for home use. They range from one at a time hand presses, manual machine presses and single punch presses. The volume of tablets you use and your budget will help determine which one is right for you. The various types are pictured below.
