Default A quick question about honey

What's the proper way of mixing honey in with shisha?
Because both times that I've tried it, I couldn't get enough airflow because the honey made all the shisha stick together, so there was barely any smoke.

If something like that is happening I can only assume you're using too much honey. Just do like 1/8 tsp(ie a drop) at a time, so it doesn't get too gooey.
edit: To actually mix just use a fork on a plate or somethin' simple like the that

if you must though; put it in the microwave for a tad until it is soupy then put it in, a little at a time.

I like that one :3
Just not too hot or you'll hurt the tobacco.

But I think it would pair pretty awesome with nakhla earl gray for instance.

Honey/molasses and Glycerin is only used to revive dried out Tobacco.

Use about a teaspoon of honey/Molasses and a teaspoon of glycerin per 100 grams of tobacco mix it in well and let the tobacco rest in the mixture so that it can rehydrate. I usable do this to Zaghloul for the Zaghloul I get here is very dry barely sticky to the touch I then bag it in zip lock bags and let sit for a couple of days (2-3 days)

There after it is fine to smoke. the glycerin helps breaking up the honey/molasses stickiness makes for a smoother smoke. Only use vegetable Glycerin and Light Amber molasses.

Read this for help:

I don't have good results using honey to revive dried out moassel. Personally I much prefer using a light to amber molasses (no blackstrap!). What you want to do is mixing a very small amount, say about 5ml and be sure to wet your before mixing to keep the moassel from sticking to you fingers.
