Seidlitz Powders. Revolvy
Research Facts
The three ingredients of Seidlitz powders (tartaric acid, potassium sodium tartrate and sodium bicarbonate) were manufactured by chemical factories from the mid-19th century onwards. The name 'Seidlitz powders' ultimately derives from the village of Sedlec in the Czech Republic.
The powders were often packaged in a small envelope containing two coloured paper wraps, one white and one blue. The white packets contained tartaric acid, and the blue packets contained a mixture of 75% Rochelle salt (potassium sodium tartrate) and 25% baking soda (sodium bicarbonate). The powdery contents of both packets were stirred or dissolved separately in water and then mixed, giving off carbon dioxide with a characteristic fizzing sound. The drink was described as "a cooling, agreeable draught".

Research Facts
Stages to making a pill: 1. A prescription for pills would give the weight of medication in one pill and the number of pills required. Multiplying these two figures gave the quantities to be weighed. 2. The medication was mixed with very thick and viscous syrup fo glucose for form a stiff pliable mass, which was rolled to get a 'sausage' shape. 3. The 'sausage' was placed on the pill base grooves and rolled to a length correspond to the number of pills required. 4. The roller handle was guided to cut the 'sausage' and roll the cut pieces that are the pills. 5. to round out the edges, the cut pieces where put into a lidded circular bowl or a pill silverer and rotated until the pieces are round balls. At this time the pills can have a silver, gold or candy coating.
