Default smoking mint leaves- tried

ok so i know there have been thread after thread after thread of people asking about it and not a lot of doing. here we go

i had some mint tobaccos mixed up (mizo and reg nakhla mints, with some mint extract, it smoked ok) i decided to add a good amount of peppermint leaves (peppermint tea that was only dried peppermint)i added a bit of glycerine and molasses and let it sit for about a day in a closed container. packed it up and smoked it, no harshness, and it smoked fine. i think as long as you get it to be moistened you will be fine. it did give a good mint extra (i know i know, your smoking pure mint to start with how can you tell, but believe me it was a better smoke)

so give it a try just make sure to let the mint leaves hydrate as to not burn

I believe TheEgyptian warned people that smoking mint leaves is horrible for your bronchi.
I would believe the man because he had bronchitis and he couldn't smoke for... 2-3 weeks

SB it was just peppermint tea (loose leaf) from teavana

demonix i didnt remember him saying that, i didnt have any negative effect i can feel, im not planing to do it very often or really much ever again just wanted to try it but with all the metal dust, silica, plaster dust, and general shit i inhale on a daily base i dont think mint leaves will hurt me much more in my situation. but along that note each variant of mint might react differently, i saw some where that some mint has a very high iron content and smoking it can cause you to ingest iron oxide (how ever i would assume any mint that is certified for human consumption wouldnt have said iron)
