Oregano and Lemon Balm Herbs almost dry ready to be stored in glass quart Mason jars. I strip the leaves off and stuff them in nice clean mason jar. I use the herbs for seasoning, teas, and make a mix for home-grown tobacco cigarettes. Yes I occasionally smoke herbs, but not marijuana. I can’t handle pot, makes me feel very sick. But I can smoke my home-grown tobacco and herb mix, which has no pesticides, herbicides or other chemicals that commercial products are laced with! Also I am making Oregano oil. Super easy to do, I will post the process once the oil has been filtered. People say it is really difficult to cure and dry tobacco for smoking. It’s not that difficult. I will post a blog this fall about curing tobacco.
Oregano Oil as antibiotic and anti-inflammatory agent.
Lemon balm is most commonly used for digestive issues, insomnia, anxiety and immunity. It can be taken in the form of infused teas in the range of 1.5 to 4.5 grams of lemon balm taken two to four times daily. It can also be taken in a tincture of 2-3 mL (roughly 20 drops) three times daily. Many others choose to steep 2 to 4 tablespoons of the crushed leaf in a cup of boiling water.
Preparation of Herbs into Palatable Smoking Mixtures
A number of factors contribute to making a palatable smoking mixture. First and foremost is the way you cure the herbs. If you take fresh Tobacco and dry it like any medicinal herb, it becomes an unpalatable obnoxious smoke that the most hard-core smoker couldn’t stomach (or lung, as the case may be). Tobacco is semi-dried slowly, allowing for chemical changes, and is never dried to a crisp. It is packaged slightly moist in air tight containers. If it dries out, the smoker adds an apple slice or sprays it with water. Dried out Tobacco is harsh.
