Your health is the most important gift of your life, it’s too precious to place in the hands of some mass-produced factory-processed herbal product. The fewer kilometres our herbal remedies travel, the better. I’m proud to say that my herbal remedies travel about 12 metres from my garden straight to my body via a health product I just could not live without, Empty Capsules. These things are a life saver to save the least and I’m so glad I found them!
Nature itself is the best physician. – Hippocrates
From the day I began using empty capsules to take my homegrown herbal remedies, I’ve felt my body bloom. I have noticed such a change in my general wellbeing and vitality that I cannot ever understand the benefit of buying herbal remedies off the shelf.
Store-bought herbal remedies are watered down, over-processed mystery substances that have more than likely been sitting on the shelf leaching any goodness they may have once possessed. If you’ve been taking store-bought herbal remedies and wondering why you don’t feel like a shining beacon of health and wellbeing, its’ not your fault. But now is the time to make your own.
I buy empty capsules in bags of 500. I prefer the plant based capsules, but the gelatin capsules are completely fine. It’s up to your individual preferences and both options are top-notch food-grade products. The empty capsules come in a range of different sizes based on how much you need your capsule to contain, and how big of a capsule you feel like swallowing. I personally find the ‘0’ size to be perfect for me. Each one holds about 500 mg of my herbal mix and I take 2 each day.
Tending to my garden is one of my favourite things to do. It makes me feel connected to nature. I find that eating straight from my own garden adds to my sense of wellbeing. I know that there are no chemicals used on my garden, I know the love and care that went into growing the produce, and I know that it hasn’t been frozen or left to sit on a shelf for too long. I love to grow turmeric, lemons, ginger, rosemary, lavender, and chamomile (just to name a few). I’m a one-woman apothecary!
I collect the herbs I want to use for the day, or a few days at a time, and create my own custom powdered blend. I then open an empty capsule and scoop up some of the herbal mix before snapping the capsule shut and sending it down the hatch. It’s the easiest and most satisfying thing I’ve ever done for my health.
The greatest part about using empty capsules is that I can alter my dosage from day to day and know that I’m giving myself the optimum mix of herbal remedy for my own wellbeing goals. The capsules are so easy to swallow and have no taste. I get all the benefit without any fuss.
If you’ve been underwhelmed by the effects of store bought herbal remedies, trust me, it’s not you…it’s them. Upgrade your herbal game and make your own at home.
