Using Essential Oils With Your Dab Rig For Flavor And Fragrance

  • A B

Using an oil rig to smoke concentrates is ideal for getting the most amount of flavor from each hit. But sometimes you might feel like there's something missing, or something you'd like to add to make the experience even more unique. To give your concentrates some extra oomph, you try adding essential oils to the mix.

What Are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are extracts taken from flowers, fruits, roots and other plant matter. They are highly concentrated and have a variety of health benefits, including helping to  reduce inflammation, improve skin health, get rid of headaches and more. They're most commonly used in aromatherapy to help treat everyday issues. For example, peppermint oil can give you an energy boost while, on the opposite end of the spectrum, lavender can help calm you down.

Here are some of the most popular essential oils for smoking:

  • Peppermint
  • Chamomile
  • Rosemary
  • Lavender
  • Lemon/lemongrass
  • Grapefruit

Smoking Essential Oils With Your Dab Rig

NOTE: Essential oils are not meant to be smoked on their own. They're meant to help enhance the experience of smoking concentrates, herbs and other substances. There are a few ways you can use essential oils for smoking.

1. Add A Few Drops To Your Concentrates

Ingesting essential oils aromatically is a great way to experience their full effects. Adding a few drops directly to your concentrates in order to smoke them will help them be absorbed into your body via your lungs. From there, they will be circulated throughout your body to work their natural magic.

2. Add A Few Drops To Your Dab Rig's Water

When the vapor from your concentrates passes through water mixed with essential oils, it delivers an extra-flavorful experience. If you want your concentrates to have a fruitier flavor, try adding grapefruit, lemon or wild orange oil. If you want a smooth, minty fresh hit each time, add peppermint oil. Smoking to unwind? Add lavender or chamomile to create a more soothing effect.

3. Rub Essential Oils On The Interior Of Your Pipe

To create a more subtle experience, you could also simply rub the essential oils inside the neck of your dab rig. You'll get pleasant aromas and a bit of extra flavor each time without altering the base flavors of your concentrates as much.
