Making your own shisha is a great way to enjoy your favorite flavors without breaking the bank. It’s also a fun activity to share with friends.
You can use a variety of fruits and herbs to make your own shisha. However, the best ingredients are tobacco and honey / molasses along with flavoring.
Flavoring is an important part of the shisha-making process because it gives your hookah smoke its distinctive taste and texture. It is important to choose high-quality flavorings, especially those that contain no added sugar or other additives.
Step 1: Soak Tobacco
First, soak the dry tobacco in hot water for at least 20 minutes. This helps rehydrate the leaves and removes any excess nicotine that may be present. It also makes it easier to work with.
After the tobacco has soaked, it’s time to start mixing it with your other ingredients. It’s best to start with a little of each ingredient and add more as you go until you get the desired consistency.
You can also add a small amount of water to help the ingredients mix better. It is important to keep an eye on the temperature of your mixture, because you don’t want it too hot.
Once your mixture is a bit sticky, you can add the flavorings and glycerin. This will give your shisha a sweet and creamy taste that you’ll love.
Step 2: Combine Tobacco, Glycerin and Fruit
The next step is to combine your tobacco with the apple mix. This will help to bind the apples together with the molasses and glycerin, and it will also make sure that you don’t burn your mixture when it’s smoked. It’s also a good idea to add a little bit of glycerin because it can make the vaporization of your mixture more even.
To make your shisha, put the tobacco in a bowl and cover it with foil. Leave a couple of millimeters of space between the top of the tobacco and the foil. This will prevent the foil from sticking to the shisha and burning it.
When you’re ready to smoke, attach the hose to the base of your hookah and place the hot charcoal tab on top of it. Smoke gently until you’re satisfied with the level of flavor and nicotine in your shisha.
If you’re new to smoking, start with one bowl per day and gradually increase the amount of shisha as you get more comfortable. Don’t smoke too much at once because it can cause your mouth to become irritated.
Lastly, don’t forget to re-load your hose frequently and move the charcoal tabs often to prevent overheating and harsh burnt flavors.
When you’re done, store the mixture in a cool, dark place. You can also freeze it for later use. This will help the flavor to last longer and allow you to enjoy it for a longer period of time.
