Charcoal Capsules for Bug Bites

I would like to share a great tip I found for those nasty bites that make our skin swell up. Take two charcoal capsules, split them, and put the powder into a small dish. Mix to a paste with a few drops of cold water, then spread onto the bite leave on for half an hour then wash off in tepid water. It's a bit messy, I know, but this really works and takes the poison and swelling down.

I've never heard of charcoal capsules. Where would you find these?
