As NRTs (nicotine replacement therapy) go, one of the most popular ones worldwide is vaping, and millions of people have used it to help them quit smoking successfully. Many people who start vaping will begin using an entry-level device perfect for novices and then graduate to use more complicated ones. Some people want as much control over the vaping experience as possible, and an excellent way to achieve this is by making delicious vape juice yourself at home. Below are the details of what you will need to do this, so you can try making vape juice at home and ensure it is a personal and pleasurable experience.
Shopping For Vape Juice Supplies
You will need some supplies to make the e-liquid that you will most likely not have around the home, but you can purchase them easily online. The things that you will need to make your vape juice is as follows:
- Vegetable Glycerine (VG)
- Propylene Glycol (PG)
- Liquid Nicotine
- A Funnel
- Suitable Size Bottles
- A Measuring Jug
- A Mixing Container
- A Pipette
You can get everything you need easily enough online, and when you work out the cost of making delicious e liquid yourself, it is cheaper than purchasing pre-made bottles of it. Once you have everything you need, you can start making your e-liquid which is a simple process.
Mixing The Ingredients
Until you have experience making your vape juice at home, you will want to use a 50/50 ratio of VG and PG. As you get more experience, if you are into cloud chasing, you can increase the VG in the mixture, which will help you create massive plumes of vape smoke. Measure out equal parts of the vegetable glycerine and propylene glycol and put this into your mixing container. You will need to measure out the liquid nicotine you will add to your e-liquid and ensure it is a suitable strength. You do not want it too weak or too strong, which can reduce your pleasure from vaping. The last part of the process is to add the flavour to your e-liquid, and you can combine flavours if you want or make your vape juice using only one. You will now want to mix the ingredients and ensure that they are combined thoroughly.
Bottling Your Vape Juice
Once you have mixed the ingredients thoroughly, you will want to try it quickly to ensure it is flavoursome. The flavours will not be as intense at first, but you can get an idea of the taste when you try it before transferring it to the bottles. If it is okay, you can put the liquid into the bottles you will use and ensure you seal them. You will then want to store your vape juice in a cool dark place, as ultraviolet light can break down the mixture and reduce its taste. It is best to leave the liquid for around a week to ensure it has as much flavour as possible, and when you go to use it for the first time, ensure you shake it thoroughly. The homemade vape juice is now ready to use, and you can keep practising until you can create the perfect e-liquid for you.
