Capsules and capsule machines
Do you love the effect that some herbs and seeds have on you, but are not the biggest fan of the way that they taste? Do you like using herbs, but find it difficult to do so outside of your home? Avalon has the solution to both problems: do-it-yourself capsules. With DIY capsules, you can get the benefits of the active ingredients in herbs at any time of day that works for you, no matter where you are—all without that unpleasant aftertaste!
Capsules in different sizes
We offer a variety of capsule machines. The one that is right for you depends on things such as the size of the capsules that you want to make. Are you going to use herbs that require you to take a large quantity of active ingredients to achieve the desired effect? You should choose a larger capsule then. Capsule machines that make the smallest capsules are indicated with a 1. Machines that make mid-sized capsules are shown with 0 and the machines for the largest capsules are shown with 00. The same sizes apply for empty capsules. This information should make it easier to decide which products you need on this page.
How does a capsule machine work?
First, purchase empty (vegetarian or gelatine) capsules, such as the ones that we offer at Avalon Magic Plants in packs of 100. If you want to purchase more than 1,000 empty capsules at one time, please send us an e-mail for a (discounted) customised offer. Once you have the capsules and the machine, follow these six steps:
- Grind the herbs that you want to use, e.g. with a coffee grinder or other type of grinder;
- Fill the machine with the empty capsules (vegetarian or gelatine) capsules;
- Divide the herb blend into each capsule until it is full (green card);
- Press the herbs down with a tamper;
- Place the filled capsule cover on top;
- Press once and the first 24 capsules will be finished.
If you are an experienced user, you can experiment with different types of herbs. However, be careful when doing this, you don’t want to end up having a bad trip! Make sure to remember that not every capsule can be used in every machine. For this reason, you should carefully read the descriptions of the products.
