Last Christmas I gave my brother in law an herbal smoking blend for his pipe and he loved it! So he asked me to make a bigger batch of it this week. If you don’t want to make it yourself, you can always order a blend pre-made from Mountain Rose Herbs.

The herbs in the blend are relaxing, non addictive and legal. 😀 Here is a bit of info for you on each of the herbs that I use and the recipe will follow.

Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) –  this herb is actually healing to the lungs for respiratory problems , clearing out the lungs, encouraging expectoration and soothing to the throat.

Damiana ( Tunera diffusa) –  A relaxing, blends especially well with mullein. It’s a nerve relaxer, mood enhancer and a digestive stimulant. Also known to be an aphrodisiac.

Raspberry Leaf (Rubus idaeus) – A delicious flavor enhancer to any blend. Full of antioxidants.

Marshmallow Leaf (Althaea officinalis) – Is used to help ease sore throats and dry coughs mainly as a tea but soothing in a smoking blend.

Skullcap (Scuttelaria lateriflora) – a comforting herb to relieve nervous tension and relax the body.
