Picked some mugwort up yesterday and smoked a little bit this morning.
Was very smooth and light if that makes since.
Looking forward to trying it in a tea as well.
Gonna make a smoking blend of it with yarrow and Damiana.

GhostAndTheWolf, I have had very interesting results from smoking mugwort before bed. No effort falling asleep whatsoever, and dreams like you wouldn't believe...some were more than dreams, if you catch my drift. I've also used it once or twice now as an aid for hedge work and it definitely helped.

Hey anyone have any tips on soaking these herbs so they are not burning off so fast when smoking them?
I dabbled some water on them and that seems to kinda help but I was just wondering if anyone else has any thoughts on it.
Id like to make it more along the lines of smoking tobacco leaf.

Add a sugary liquid. I like using things like apple juice, cider, a weak booze, etc. Dampen the mixture and let it dry until it sticks together when pinched but isn't in danger of molding easily. Also resinous compounds help, like benzoin, copal, pine resin, etc.

Cool thanks RS.
I've flavored my own tobacco in the past and thought it'd be the same but I wasn't sure.
The cider sounds good.
I have essential oils and in that I have a handful of tree resins but it's said that it's unsafe to burn EO's.

What about honey? I'm just curious, I've never tried to add anything to a smoke able herb but I also have the same issue with overly dry herbs.

Watered down honey would work. Normal honey wouldn't dry quite right

I dried a bit in apple cider last night and this morning it looks pretty good. Smells good and looks to be dry enough to still smoke.
