Default Re: home made shisha

I disagree. Glycerin is not "a must" but an option.It is mostly the contemporary and/or domestic brands that use glycerin. Traditional shisha,dating back centuries to present, has been made using moalasses and or honey( see nahkla,fakher, havana ect.). the hard part is finding moalasses that is not overpowering in flavor.

The key to make shisha is glycerin. Its too easy. you just take tobacco add glycerin and you have shisha. Making the shisha have flavour is the difficult part. I tried flavourings, extracts and some more things but they didnt work. What you need is something with a strong smell even if it tastes nasty. I tasted AF and AW shisha and it tastes nasty. Trust me it, doesnt have to taste good, just smell good

My tips :
GLycerin is a must
No food flavourings or extracts
Try strong smelling substances
Soak the tobacco the the aroma you want and leave it for some time
keep the thickness of the glycerin high
