Herbal Smoking Blends
Based on: The Herbal Academy's Post about "How to Craft Your Own Smoking Blends" by Agatha Noveille
Herbal smoking blends are typically made of three parts.
There are many herbs that can be used for these three categories, but we have listed where our collection of 8 herbs falls below.
- Base: light and fluffy herbs
- mullein, cannabis
- Supportive: specific to the purpose for making the blend
- thyme, rose, rosemary
- Flavor: adds flavor to the blend
- lavender, peppermint, chamomile
The ratios of each herb you use is up to you, but below are guidelines to get you started. Don't be afraid to experiment in smaller quantities (like tsp instead of tbsp) to find ratios that work best for you!
- Base: 2 tbsp
- Supportive: 1 tbsp
- Flavor: 1/2 tbsp
