Default Homemade hookah tobacco ???

I am a "do it yourself" kind of guy. One thing that I am absolutely dying to do is make my own hookah tobacco from scratch. I have scoured the internet and have only found a few ideas on how to do it. None of them seem right . If anyone can shine some light on the subject I'll be much obliged.

I know that PbPredator is into making his own tobacco. Rayver, Hajo, and Shishoholic are also into learning the process. There is a couple threads on the subject throughout this site. I did a quick search and am listing up a few of them, the first one by "Hajo" is a great "How To"

Wow thanks Sam!!! These are awesome!!! I must not have been searching for the appropriate keywords. I always had the understanding that shisha is just another term for a hookah. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hookah So I always just call my "shisha" hookah tobacco.

shisha is actually the hookah. They stand for the same thing, just American ppl call the tobacco shisha and the actuall device hookah. The only correct word for shisha tobacco is mu'ssel

Anyway.. back on topic. I made some homemade tobacco aswell. But the only 2 batches the came  out good and tasty were chocholate and strawberry and these were using actuall food flavouring products. Its basically 2 things. Essensces and Flavourings. One is really sour but has a strong scent and the otherone smells like sugarwater and offers the taste. I used both to make chocholate and it came out really good. The room smelled like chocholate for a few hours and also tasted like eating chocholate.
Now strawberry, i only found strawberry escence and i made it using that only. It smelled a bit arfificial but it was really strawberry. It tasted a bit sour tho but it was good anw


I hope i 've help :P

Personally I prefer the term mu'essel or tobamel for the treacled stuff we smoke and from my travels in the Arab world I've found the term Narghile to be the most common term for the pipe we all use. I try not to use the term hookah do to the long time association in the West with degenerates smoking "other stuff" but in the end I like way narghile sounds so I use that instead.

I've had great success making my own mu'essel but the time it takes means that it is something I can't do too often. If you read the stuff I posted you'll find a proven method for making great stuff. The links I posted really have great sources for flavourings although Lorann is an excellent source as well and well worth the costs because it's so concentrated.

Great tip. I tried those oils a few weeks ago...They are great to add to tobacco that is already flavored. I add the anise oil to my licorice tobacco so it tastes more like black licorice. That stuff is awesome.
