The easiest way to take dry powdered herbs internally is to use gelatine capsules. (These come in various sizes and can be obtained from most pharmacies. Capsules not made from animal products are also available; ask in your area for suppliers.) The size you need depends on the amount of herbs prescribed per dose and on the volume of the material. A capsule size 00 for instance will hold about 0.5g/1/60 oz of finely powered herb To Fill a capsule 1. Place the powdered herbs in a flat dish and take the halves of the capsule 2. Move the halves of the capsule through the powder, filling them in the process. 3. Push the two halves together.
