Are you having trouble finding the perfect vape juice blend in stores? Then why not concoct your dream e-juice yourself!
If you’re thinking about trying your hand at making vape juice but aren’t sure where to start, we’re here to help. Here’s everything you need to know about how to make vape juice yourself.
The Benefits of DIY Vape Juice
So, why make vape juice yourself when you can order practically any flavor from your phone? Well, just like anything else you make from scratch, making vape juice yourself offers up two significant benefits: transparency and the ability to customize.
Unless you take the time to break down the ingredients on your current favorite e-liquid, there’s a good chance you’re not 100% sure of what you’re inhaling. By making your vape juice yourself, you can pick and choose what ingredients you’re using, so you can vape confidently with the knowledge that your juice only contains the highest quality ingredients.
On top of that, doing it yourself allows you to customize every aspect of your vaping experience. From concocting unique flavors to generating thicker clouds, mixing brews yourself gives you complete control.
Let’s Talk Ingredients
So, now that you know why you should make your vape juice yourself, it’s time to get into the “how,” starting with ingredients.
While every blend is different, most vape juice contains the same ingredients: a base liquid, flavoring, and nicotine.
Your base liquid is the most vital ingredient in your vape juice. If you’re new to the world of vape DIY, you may want to consider investing in some premixed E Liquid base. That said, if you’re up for a challenge and want to try to blend your base yourself, you’ll need USP grade vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol.
Next comes flavoring. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to find what makes vape juice taste good at your local supermarket — vape juice requires something a little more specialized.
If you want your homemade vape juice to have a specific flavor, you’re going to need to find some flavor concentrate. And remember, no matter how good it may smell, you should never add essential oils to your homemade vape juice.
While you don’t need to add nicotine to your vape juice, the option is there. One of the best benefits of making vape juice is controlling the amount of nicotine in your vape juice. You can add nicotine separately or find premade vape juice base that comes with it pre-added.
If this all seems like a bit much, don’t get discouraged! While you don’t need to be a chemist to mix vape juice, it can seem a little intimidating to beginners. Fortunately, there’s an alternative: DIY vape juice kits.
A DIY kit will include all of the ingredients and tools you need and instructions to help guide you through the process.
How to Make Vape Juice
Now that you know what you need to make your vape juice, it’s time to get mixing.
The act of making vape juice is pretty straightforward. You just put all of your ingredients in a bottle and give it a shake. The trick lies in figuring out how much of everything you need.
There are hundreds of recipes online you can use to help guide you. But, if you’re looking to make a unique blend, you’re going to need to do some math. Fortunately, several chemistry-savvy vapers already have a workaround in place in the form of formula calculators.
Once you know how much of your ingredients you need, carefully measure them out using a clean syringe, add them to a clean bottle, then screw the cap back on, give it a few good shakes and enjoy!
