Herbs for Pipe SmokingAs many of you know, pipe tobacco processing is usually a multiple step process. There are some great articles about the process and I have provided a link to one of my favorites here:http://pipesmagazine.com/blog/put-that-in-your-pip…and some historical content:http://pipesmagazine.com/blog/drink-accompaniments…But what about the herbs? In the final process of aromatics you encounter a Top Dressing that is usually alcohol based and infused with flavors (artificial or natural essence).
The Herb blends, offered by FloggleWerks, are a natural replacement and/or enhancement for your top dressing. The moisture, provided by your tobaccos casing, is more than sufficient, when following the mixing directions provided by FloggleWerks. Are the herbs safe to smoke? FloggleWerks does NOT offer any herbs (or for that matter Wood Species) which are toxic to the end user. Herbs have been smoked for thousands of years, as tobacco smoking is relatively new to the pipe smoking history timeline.
And lastly, you can try the blends in a tea cup, as well. It is a great way to experience the full herbal blend experience and taste the flavor that will be added to your pipe tobacco mixture experience!!
