Making Vape Juice At Home: What You Need
Many people love the various flavours of e-liquid when vaping, which attracts them to it in the first place. There are many different flavour profiles for e-liquids that you can use in your vaping device, and you can separate them into six different categories, which are:
- Candy Flavours
- Drink Flavours
- Tobacco Flavours
- Dessert Flavours
- Menthol Flavours
- Fruit Flavours
E-liquids are readily available throughout the UK, and you can buy them in supermarkets, newsagents, specialist vape stores, and online. You can also consider making them yourself, which is simple to do at home. Below are all you will need to make vape juice yourself and ensure that you have complete control over your vaping experience to help you stop smoking.
Time To Go Shopping
The first thing you will need to do is compile a list of everything you will need to make your vape liquid at home and some things you may already have. You will need bottles for the vape juice, a funnel, mixing bowl, measuring jug, and you will also need the ingredients, which are as follows:
- Propylene Glycol (PG)
- Vegetable Glycerine (VG)
- Liquid Nicotine
- Food Flavourings
The flavourings you will need will depend on the type of vape juice you will make, and you can get plenty of recipe ideas online and the measurements of ingredients required. Before you start making lots of different flavours, it is best to try with one first and see if your homemade e-liquid is up to scratch. Once you have the hang of it, you can try making other flavour combinations and start experimenting. The process is the same for all recipes, and it is just the ingredients and measurements which differ.
Mixing It Together
Once you have a recipe you will follow, you will need to measure the ingredients into a large mixing bowl. If you do not have a sub-ohm vaping device ideal for cloud chasing, you will want to ensure you do an e-liquid with a 50/50 PG and VG ratio, or the vape juice may not work correctly in your device. Mix the PG and VG in the bowl, and then add the liquid nicotine to the desired strength before you add the flavourings of your choice.
Bottling It Up
You can use the vape juice straight away, but you will find that it needs time for the flavour to become fuller. You will want to pour the vape juice into your bottle and then store this in a cool and dark place, such as a cupboard. There are three enemies of vape juice: heat, oxygen, and the sun’s UV rays, and storing the vape juice correctly will help it last longer. Leave your vape juice for about one week, and then take a bottle and shake it thoroughly before putting it in your vaping device. You can then try your homemade vape juice and see how it compares to what you bought in a shop. You can continue practising making your vape juice at home till you master it and save yourself a considerable amount of money by making your e-liquid yourself rather than buying t from a vaping store.
