Those that know me well are aware that I am/was a fully qualified naturopath, herbalist, homoeopath and nutritionalist. I have always had a strong interest in the healing effects of botanical herbs and advocate for their responsible use.
These smoking mixes contain a small selection of herbs than have been historically used as tobacco substitutes. Not only nicotine-free, these herbs will also produce an effect and can be used in a myriad of ways including;
- Quitting cigarettes
- Diluting your tobacco to smoke less nicotine
- Diluting other herbs for the budget conscious
- To experience the herbal effects offered
Whatever your reason for use you can either smoke, vape or even make a tea out of these blends. Damiana is a very well known herb, said to be a Mexican aphrodisiac and feel good herb. It is very calming, relaxing, and promotes a general feeling of well-being. The effects last for approximately one hour and will become stronger with regular use. Marshmallow Leaf is also included in this blend, an anti-inflammatory herb used widely to help decrease coughing. It also has a relaxing and mildly euphoric effect.

This blend can be used in 3 different ways. You can smoke it as you would normally smoke your tobacco or add the blend to your tobacco and/or herbal mixtures to dilute. You can also vaporise this mix, either as is or combined with other herbs (temperature recommended between 150°C and 175°C) . Finally, you can make a tea by simply brewing in boiled water. I recommend lightly brewing to start till you determine the taste!
