I first tried to make tablets using the bath bomb principle: mix in a small amount to liquid (in this case I replaced the bath oils with agave syrup) and smush the mixture together. Perhaps with more patience the right balance could be achieved, but when the cute little balls started swelling, and ended up the next day as a bubbly, sticky mess, I opted for this dry, powdered version instead. Much less labor intensive to make, just as pleasant to consume.
Put the following ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly:
1/4 cup citric acid (aka sour salt or lemon salt)
1/2 cup minus 1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup fructose (**see the notes on ingredients in the next step!)
3 tablespoons cornstarch
Store in an airtight container. When needed, pour 2 teaspoons into a small glass of water, stir, and drink. Make sure your measuring spoon is dry and you don't get any water in your jar...
This recipe will yield about 66 doses. If you'd like to try it out with a single dose, mix these quantities into a small cup, then add water:
1/4 heaping teaspoon citric acid (aka sour salt or lemon salt)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fructose
This makes a slightly smaller dose than the regular amount, but when it comes to medicine it's better to err on the conservative side.
