Default Woo I just made my own shisha!

Hey guys just wanted to tell you my latest success story I made my own shisha i wanted to go with a semi traditional spicy flavour and it worked im smoking it now clouds were minimal at first but now im getting decent clouds and pretty good flavour total cost 8 pounds which is roughly 5 or 6 dollars its a spicy mix of cardamom clove and cinnamon and its awesome!

That's good to hear that your homemade tobacco worked out. Do you have a specific recipe or method for making it? I am interested in making some myself.

tbh I was looking at recipes and just tried to rationalise a way to remove the flavour of the tobbacco infuse it with my own flavours and then give it a consistency so that it wouldnt burn too fast so:
I boiled the tobbacco with quite a large amount of water adding cinnamon sticks cardamom and whole cloves and let the water boil away for a while I then added a small amount of water glycerin and honey to a seperate bowl and soaked the drained tobbacco in that for a while then I drained the tobbacco again after mixing it and let it dry then i sqeeuzed any excess water out of it and let it dry again then added more glycerin and mixed it all toghether with my fingers once it was dry i loaded a bowl and smoked it easy peasy!

there is a couple of things you could do to improve it though I was using a brand of pipe tobbacco and the flavour still came through a little unflavoured stuffs your best bet also more glycerin and honey and perhaps some extracts of the spices you used to increase the flavour potential
