Handmade E-Liquids FAQ

What is a DIY e-liquid?

A DIY e-liquid is simply the same liquid you can purchase from a vape store, but made on your own. Making your liquid on your own allows you to cut down the cost of the final product and customize the flavor to a great extent. A typical handmade e-liquid consists of four core elements, namely:

– PG
– VG
– Flavoring
– Nicotine (optional)

lavander vape juice bottlesHow to make a DIY e-liquid?

To make a homemade e-liquid, you need to follow the next simple steps:

1. Find a recipe and study it
Check out the DIY e-liquid recipes and choose the one you like. Make sure you understand it. There might be some abbreviations in the recipe, learn what they mean before you get down to mixing stuff:

– PG stands for Propylene Glycol. It is the most frequently used e-liquid base. It has quick absorption time and little consistency, which makes it an excellent choice for a pure flavor and a strong throat hit.
– VG stands for Vegetable Glycerin. This base material has a strong consistency and slow absorption, which makes it a perfect choice for those users who value dense clouds of vapor.
– TPA stands for the leading manufacturer of flavors on the e-juice market, the Perfumers Apprentice. Opt for flavors that have a “DIY Endeavours” label.

Note: we recommend you to mix VG and PG in your e-liquids. 70VG/30PG is recommended for sub-ohm vaping.

How to measure the ingredients for the homemade e-juice recipes?

Every e-liquid recipe has a list of ingredients as well as a percentage next to each component. To define how much ml or drops of each element you need, use a website like eJuice Me Up that will translate the measurements for you.

How to make an e-liquid?

After you measured all the elements needed for the recipe, mix them in one of the possible ways: by volume or by weight. To mix the ingredients by volume, you simply need to use separate syringes for each ingredient and fill the bottles using mL measurements.

To mix the ingredients by weight, you simply need to put the bottle on scales and start dripping your flavors into the container using grams measurement till the desired percentage is reached. Here are the best e-juice recipes we think you might want to give a try.
