good herbal tobacco can be made from dried herbs by
wetting them with honey water.
-first rub the herbs well together, with your hands.
use 1 teaspoon of honey to 6 or 7 of water.
stir well into the herbs.

spread the mix out on a tray and allow to dry for a day or two, turning over from time to time.
when dry enough to roll up and burn, put in an airtight tin.

use fibrous or hairy herbs as a base
eg. Coltsfoot, Mullein, Garden Sage or Willow bark.

add 20-40% aromatic herbs
eg. cooking herbs, Rose petals, uva ursi or Artemisia spp
depending on taste.
