Many people who have been using e cigarettes usually buy branded and premixed e juices. As such, they have little to no option on things and flavors to try. After some time, they wonder if it is possible create their own e juice mixture at home. The fact is they can! In this way, they will be able to try new things and exercise their creativity at the same time. Are you one of these people who are interested in creating your own e liquid solutions? Read on!
In this article, you will learn the essential ingredients of an e juice in order to create your own. This is designed for people who already have experience in vamping. Nevertheless, beginner vipers can also use the steps that will be mentioned in this article as long as they know some of the basic terms that are outright confusing and foreign to a person who has neither read nor heard anything about e cigarettes, e juices and mixtures.
In truth, creating your own e liquid mixture or solution can be very easy and cost effective. You will only need some tools (that can be easily found in your household), ingredients and a bit of diligence.
The simple tools that you will need are as follows:
- Graduated cylinder
- Latex gloves
- Measuring cup
- Safety goggles
- Empty bottles
- Eye dropper (you can use a syringe as an alternative)
- E liquid calculator
As long as you have created one e liquid mixture, the rest of the mixture that you are about to create will be easy. You can even share the e liquid mixture with your friends.
Prepare the key ingredients of an e juice. They are as follows:
- Vegetable Glycerin (VG) and/or Propylene Glycol (PG)
- Nicotine concentrate (unflavored)
You can easily buy these three ingredients in your favorite e cigarette shop or online e cigarette vendors and retailers. You shouldn’t hastily purchase those things from just any store however, especially since some retailers merely think about their own gains. You should search for a shop that’s run by people who truly care about their customers’ safety and satisfaction.
Flavoring is where things become really interesting. The reason is that you can actually mix and match different flavors depending on your mood, wants and of course, creativity. In addition, try out similar flavoring additives from different suppliers/retailers and see which is better. You can read e cigarette forums and blogs to learn about actual experiences of e cigarette users around the globe.
Flavoring your e juice solution will consist of lots of experimentation. For more information, you can always find e liquid recipes online.
Vegetable Glycerin (VG) and/or Propylene Glycol (PG) are the substances that you will use in order to dilute the nicotine concentrate. Vegetable Glycerin (VG) is a thick liquid. It is commonly used in order to increase the amount of vapor in an e cigarette. On the other hand, Propylene Glycol (PG) is a liquid with a viscous texture. It is commonly used in order to increase ‘throat hit.’ Generally speaking, you can mix and match VG and PG depending on your personal preference. For example, you can use 20% VG 80% PG and vice versa. As a rule of thumb however, a 50-50 VG to PG ratio works best.
Nicotine concentrate (unflavored) is widely used by a lot of e cigarette users. It will bring some ‘throat hit’ and satisfy your cravings for nicotine.
Now that you have all the key ingredients, you may now prepare your e liquid mixture and try it out in your e cigarette. Good luck!
