What is a Humidifying Stone or Humidifying Stone?

When we buy roll-your-own tobacco, we often buy it in large quantities, such as the large jars sold in many tobacconists. This has a drawback and that is that over time the tobacco begins to dry out excessively.

When tobacco dries out, it can sometimes be unpleasant to smoke and even sting when you take a hit, which is why it is common for many people to prefer wet roll-your-own tobacco. But how can we fix this problem? Very easy, by purchasing a humidifier stone for tobacco. We have what you are looking for, in our catalog you will find Raw and Natur humidifying stones at a very affordable price. These stones are made with the perfect size and porosity necessary so that your tobacco does not dry out and is always in optimal conditions.

How do humidifier stones work?

These stones have a very simple operation. They are made with materials that absorb water, such as synthetic polymers or terracotta. Before using it, the instructions of the stone tell us to soak it in water for approximately five minutes, during that time the stone will absorb the amount of water it needs to perform its function. So when you put it inside the package or the jar where you have the rolling tobacco, the stone will dry very little by little over the days, the water that evaporates from it will be absorbed by the tobacco, thus improving its humidity.

Things to keep in mind when moistening tobacco

Tobacco when it is very dry is harsh and somewhat unpleasant to the taste, but wet it is completely impossible to smoke, basically because it will not ignite. It is necessary to find the perfect balance, for this the tobacco must have a maximum of 70% humidity. To find this perfect balance, use humidifier stones, as their mission is to achieve that specific level of humidity.
