Vaping has become extremely popular with many people, including people who do not smoke, and one of the main reasons for this is the vast array of different flavours of vape juices available. There are plenty of places that you can purchase these, including inside specialist shops, cigarette counters in stores, and online, but you can also make them yourself if you wanted to give it a try. Below are some instructions for you to follow to help you get started to make your homemade e-liquid tailored to your tastes and preferences.
Purchase The Ingredients & Equipment
You can purchase everything you need to make your vapour juice easily enough online, and all you need to do is know what is required. The items you will need to purchase are as follows:
- Vegetable Glycerine (VG)
- Propylene Glycol (PG)
- Nicotine (if you want to add to help you stop smoking)
- 10ml or 50ml bottles for your vape juice
There are plenty of places you can purchase everything you need online, and you may wish to get a few different flavourings so you can try different mixes and concoctions. Once you have everything in place, it is time to start mixing your homemade e-liquid.
Making Your Juice
The first thing you will need to decide is the flavouring you will use, and you can combine a few different flavours or stick with one; the choice is yours. Take the bottle you will use for your liquid and use a pipette to put the flavouring in the bottle. If you are using a 50ml bottle, you will want to add between ten and twenty drops in total to your bottle and remember that the flavourings are highly concentrated, so you do not need too much. There are a lot of different flavourings you can choose from, with many fruity varieties available, such as:
The Ratio For Your Mixture
You will also need to consider the ratio of VG and PG you will use in your e-liquid, and if you are after lots of think vapour, you will want a higher amount of VG in your mixture. You can do a 50/50 split if you prefer, and once you have decided, you can add these ingredients to your bottle with the flavouring. Pour the VG into the bottle first until you have the ratio that you want. Then top up the rest of the bottle with VG until it is almost filled to the top, then put the top on the bottom and shake it vigorously for a few minutes. Put the bottle down and let it settle for a few hours until the bubbles have gone.
Your vape juice is then ready to use, and you can try your homemade concoction and tweak it if necessary. If you need more flavour or wish to add another flavour profile to it, add a few drops of flavouring, close the bottle and shake it well, and let it settle again before trying. With a bit of experimentation and practice, you can get your recipe just as you like it and start making vape juice yourself at home, rather than buying it online or in a shop.
