If you spend too much on vape juice, there’s a way to reduce your expenses. Simply make the e-liquid at home!
Don’t worry; it isn’t as complex as it sounds. In fact, making vape liquid is pretty easy if you have all the right equipment and supplies. Read on to learn how to make your own e-liquid.
Step 1: Gather All the Equipment
Start by collecting all the essential equipment needed to make a DIY vape juice. Here are some things you will need:
- A small bottle for storing the e-liquid (5 or 10 ml)
- Syringe or pipettes for measurements (use containers for large batches)
- Gloves to protect your skin from direct contact with the liquid or ingredients
- Towels or kitchen rolls for cleaning
Step 2: Collect the Ingredients
Once you have the equipment, the next step is to find all the ingredients. For a DIY vape juice, you will need:
- Nicotine shots (skip if you want nicotine-free liquid)
- Vegetable glycerine
- Propylene glycol
- Flavour concentrates
Step 3: Make Measurements
To learn how to make your own e-liquid, your fluid measurements need to be accurate. Depending on your preference of how strong the nicotine flavour you want and the thickness of the liquid, the quantities of the ingredients need to be adjusted. Use a vape juice calculator to make accurate measurements.
The calculator will give you precise quantities of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine. However, this liquid will be utterly flavourless. The quantity of the flavour concentrate is all a matter of personal preference. Typically, concentrates are added within the range of 5% to 20%.
Once you’ve added the flavour, the next step is to add the nicotine. Fortunately, the calculator will tell you exactly the amount of nicotine shot you need to add, depending on how much vape juice you’re making.
Step 4: Mix it All
Once all the ingredients have been added, give them a good stir. Once everything has been combined, take a fresh syringe or pipette and add the DIY vape juice to the bottle.
Step 5: Let the E-Liquid Steep
Once your juice is all mixed and stored in the bottle, you’re almost done. The last step is to wait for 4 to 5 days to let the liquid steep, allowing the flavours to fully blossom. Make sure the bottle is kept in a cool and dark place. After that, your e-liquid is ready to vape.
