Herbal Smoking can be good for the health of your lungs and your being.
Careful application of hot smoke and burning herbs, near the body (smudges), on the body (moxibustion), and through inhalation (pipe smoking) are healing techniques that have been used for thousands of years in myriad cultures around the world. If you choose not to smoke these herbs, you may still wish to try them out as smudges.
Herm has formulated herbal smoking mixes that contain no tobacco. Remember, most herbs have specific effects on your body. You need to chose the mix of herbs that will relax, clear your mind or stimulate your energy levels. All of my smoking mixes contain mullein which is well known to directly affect the lung tissues, opening them and relieving spasms. Inhaling the smoke from burning herbs confers both physical and spiritual healing.
Laid Back Mix contains mullein, catnip, hop flowers and spicebush leaves. It is a gentle and relaxing smoke that has a smooth flavor and a fruity aroma. It is a calming herb. If you suffer from depression this is probably not your best choice since hops are known be a depressant when used to excess. Herbal Smoking can be good for the health of your lungs and your being.
