We have completed our 2015 harvest and can now proudly show you our new product range. We added new machines for processing herbs; hence, the quality is better and our product is cleaner. On top of that, our slow drying process makes the taste better.
It is worth noting that we do not use any chemicals, pesticides etc., throughout the entire process- from the seeds, to the growing, harvesting, drying, cutting, and cleaning of the plants. Therefore, even though we are not a Bio registered company, our product can still be called ‘organic,’ nonetheless.

We have made a new product range for Damiana in 2015. We are currently getting our leaf from Mexico, however, the quality isn’t great enough for smoking blends, teas, or herbal cigarettes. That is why we do our own processing. We clean it from powder, stems and twigs as much as possible.

See what is available in our offer for the coming season:


1

Damiana standard


2

Damiana fine


3

Damiana premium


4

Damiana top

Marshmallow leaf – Few words about quality

28 October 2011   /    Marshmallow   /    no comments
Marshmallow (Althaea officinalis) used for blends requires good quality processing. The marshmallow herb that is typically sold in herbal shops contains the leaf with stems. This doesn’t matter if you drink it, but it produces much harsher smoke when burned. So, the key to good quality marshmallow is to have little to no stems and bigger veins in the herb. Unfortunately, due to difficult processing, less stems = higher price. Below you can see several examples of different quality marshmallow- from the herb to excellent, pure leaf.


In 2011 we have had such products in offer:


1

whole leaf hand-processed


2

cut leaf  good quality


3

cut leaf standard


4

cut herb



Also, it is worth mentioning that there are at least two varieties of marshmallow – dark green, common in north, and light green. At the moment we have both in stock.


Marshmallow whole leaf hand-processed



Marshmallow whole leaf, hand-processed. Looks perfect.


Marshmallow leaf cut and hand processed. As you can see, it has virtually no stems, making the lightest smoke clouds possible with marshmallow.


This variety of marshmallow is the most expensive one.


Marshmallow cut leaf – good quality



Very nice quality marshmallow. Contains only small amount of thin twigs (less than 1%). Finely cut leaf.



Marshmallow cut leaf – standard quality



Above is the marshmallow variety that is typically sold in herbal shops. It has some impurities (small twigs), but has also very good taste, and produces light smoke.


This Marshmallow variety is similar to the previous one, but has more twigs. We call it Marshmallow leaf standard quality.


Marshmallow cut herb



This is Marshmallow herb cut. Because of the large amount of stems and twigs, it is the cheapest one. The smoke isn’t great, and it is difficult to roll. Not recommended. The amount of stems is about 50% of herb (by weight).

Marshmallow leaf – An idea for blends

Dried Marshmallow leaf has a deep green colour, fleshy, soft leaves and delicate hairs. It is commonly used as an anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory herb. Marshmallow leaf has a very delicate smoke when burned in a pipe or a cigarette. It has also cough relieving properties for the lungs. It absorbs extracts well, serving as an excellent base to create aromatic incense. Just add a bit of essential oil and you will get perfect incense.
