Default name of shisha

hi guys, could anyone help me?

Names of shisha made me crazy.

As I know, there are different names of hookah, like hookah, shisha, nargile, argilah, argileh etc.

And also, there are names of tobacco smoked in hookah, like shisha, herbal tobacco, herbal shisha, tobacco shisha, shisha flavour, shisha molasses etc.

Could anyone tells the difference?
I had googled, but couldn't make it clear.
thanks!!!

Mu‘assel or tobacco is what you smoke.

Shisha means 'Glass' and in the west we commonly but incorrectly call the pipe a shisha or refer to the tobacco as shisha.

herbal is referred to as "wood shavings and twigs" and should not be used in any of my pipes ever.

The term Shisha is used colloquially to refer to Shisha Tobacco ( which is like calling pipe tobacco pipe). "Shisha" actually refers to the pipe( more specifically the glass base).

Shisha tobacco, shisha flavor, etc...are modern terms for "Moassel ".

"Herbal tobacco" is an oxymoron ( and is generally to be avoided)

Clear?

The Fantasia Herbal Ice Mint is Fantastic but im a hookah n00b still learning to pack a vortex bowl properly (shisha was burnt on my first go, mistakes were made, but im learning. It was the dr pepper flavour that suffered a bad fate) so take that as a disclaimer
