How to prepare a DIY e-liquid

Have you tried too many e-liquids? However, cannot find anything to your liking? Then it is high time to find out how to prepare a DIY liquid for e-cigarettes. This article reveals the composition, required devices, and several life hacks for a long-lasting aftertaste.

Composition of a DIY e-liquid

Any e-liquid, even a premium one, consists of three components: glycerin, propylene glycol, and flavoring agents. Nicotine liquids also contain… guess what.

Therefore, to make a DIY e-liquid you need to buy the necessary ingredients first.

Propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG) can be bought separately at a pharmacy or as a mixture (base) from vape manufacturers. These ingredients influence the density of vapor and intensity of flavor. The more glycerin, the thicker the vapor clouds. If there is more propylene glycol, taste delivery will be excellent. That is why you should pay attention to PG/VG proportion when buying a base.

Choose the flavoring agents and nicotine to your liking. Take into account that nicotine also influences the flavor. If you are a beginning vaper willing to make your own DIY e-liquid, it is better to avoid using the most harmful component.

How DIY e-liquids are made?

Now let’s talk about preparation and the process itself. Usually, 6 and 10 ml bottles and Pasteur pipettes are used for making DIY e-liquids. Professional mixologists even have a special device for DIY e-liquids.

When you start making the mixture, make sure to follow a definite sequence:

  • Propylene glycol;
  • Nicotine;
  • Glycerin;
  • Flavoring agent.

To make it clear: add the flavoring agent in the end.

How to prepare a DIY e-liquid

After combining all ingredients for the DIY e-liquid, leave the mixture in a cold place protected against sunlight for several days.

To ensure high quality of the e-liquid, we recommend using flavoring agents from reputed manufacturers. For instance, the French company Alp Liq has a DIY line and readymade recipes for making a premium DIY e-liquid.

If you want to turn your fancy for mixology into a business someday, we recommend reading the interview with the business manager of Liquid Lab.

Maybe after reading this article you think that DIY e-liquids are too difficult to make and take a lot of time? Have a look at the budget and cool novelty – Cinematic e-juice line, which we have recently reviewed.
