    Is there an EASY way to stuff spices in the little clear capsules ?

    I got the empty capsules at the drug store, and I am currently filling them by dipping them into the spice containter. I am taking cumin and tumeric for the multiple sclerosis, and I THINK they are doing some good. I will know in another week.

    The trouble is, it is a fiddly little job and my nails are turning yellow from the spices! :rolleyes:

    Oh, you need a capsule-stuffer! You'll never get enough in them by just dipping. You can get them most any place, but I got mine from Mountain Rose Herbs, and it was (I think) about $13.00.

    Yup, it's still $13.00. Here's the link, if you want to look at it: http://www.mountainroseherbs.com/tools/encap.php

    Click on "Capsule Machine" and be sure you get the size that fits the capsules you already have (either "0" or "00" size).

    i don't know if they still do, but used to, pharmacists put a little pile on the counter, then tapped, tapped, tapped the open end of the capsule into the powder. use the smaller end to fill, then close with the larger size.
