DIY E-Juice

The vaping community has a culture of individuality and personalisation. Whether you are new to vaping or are a veteran, one of the few drawbacks you might’ve noticed is the cost of e-juice. These costs can burn a hole in your pocket quickly, especially if you are a fan of premium brands like Cosmic Fog. There’s a solution: make your own e-liquid. DIY e-juice is now a growing hobby among vapers, as it is just as good as a shop-bought item at a fraction of the cost. You can also control the nicotine level to your satisfaction.

What is DIY E-Juice?

DIY e-juice mainly involves making your own e-liquid by mixing 4 main components. These are VG, PG, flavouring and nicotine. You don’t need a degree in chemistry, its a pretty simple process if done carefully.

Components Needed

You’ll need to get the four elements that makeup e-juice.

  • PG (Propylene Glycol): You’ll need a bottle of this with no additives, around 500ml or 1L for starters.

  • VG (Vegetable Glycerine): It makes up the bulk of e-juice. Buy a litre of pharmaceutical grade.

  • Nicotine: Nicotine degrades rapidly when exposed to air, so it’s important to get some that are of good quality. Make sure to keep it sealed too. It must be handled very carefully as undiluted nicotine is poisonous. If even a little spill onto your skin you can get very sick, very quickly.

  • Flavor Concentrates: What your e-juice tastes like is dependent upon these. You can blend thousands of individual flavors in any number of permutations and combinations.

After getting the liquids, you will need equipment for the actual mixing process. You can mix by volume or by weight, whichever you prefer.

  • Scales: If mixing by weight gets a small set of scales that go up to 0.01g for extra accuracy.

  • Storage Bottle: Store the PG and VG in squeezy bottles for easier addition to the bottles. Store your nicotine in a bottle with a dropper.

  • Syringes: If mixing by volume, you’re going to need a selection of syringes. Get 10ml syringes for PG and VG, and a lot of 1ml syringed for the nicotine and flavour concentrates.

 

Recipe and Ratios

Firstly, find a flavour you like the sound of or would like to try out and buy the relevant concentrates. Then, we need to decide what PG/VG ratio to use. A VG/PG ratio of 70/30 is recommended. If you want to try a higher proportion of PG such as 50/50. If you change the VG/PG ratio you might need to adjust the amount of flavour added to get a similar taste. Next thing to do is choosing your nicotine level. You can adjust this to your taste.

2)Measurements

You can use websites like e-liquid-recipes.com to work out the amounts to use. This can be complicated to do by hand. Just go to the create recipe page, input the relevant details and hit save. This will produce a table showing the volume, weight and percentage of each ingredient. The rest of the steps are explained in detail. You can also choose to keep your recipe private or public if you want to share it with everyone.

E-Juice Myths and Facts

There seems to be an endless measure of rumours you will hear about vaping and e-juice, whether it’s from friends or the news. They range from the baseless to the downright deceptive. Here are a few top myths and the facts about them:

1. E-liquids are dangerous

This is one of the most common myths spread by people that are uneducated on the subject of vaping. There are 3/4 ingredients used in an e-liquid: propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, natural or artificial grade flavouring concentration and nicotine, which is optional.

With the exception of nicotine, the rest are all components used in many other products like food and cosmetics.

2. E-liquids Contain Anti-Freeze

One of the ingredients in making e-liquid is Propylene Glycol, which is also used in anti-freeze. To the people using this as an excuse, its the equivalent of telling someone they’re drinking beer when they’re just having a glass of water. PG is also used to keep many areas in hospitals sanitary.

3. E-cigarettes give you popcorn lung

This is another famous myth that is often thrown in the vaping industry. The big problem was about e-liquids containing diacetyl, which was the cause of popcorn lung in factory workers from breathing in very high levels of diacetyl in popcorn factories. A study later showed that smokers were exposed to 750 times the diacetyl levels than those that vaped.

4.Nicotine causes cancer

This has seemed more like a tactic for scaring people, and it usually works. Nicotine is not a carcinogen in and of itself. It is the cocktail of thousands of other chemicals in cigarettes. In fact, though it is highly addictive, nicotine on its own is about as harmful as caffeine to your body.

5.E-cigarettes are the gateway to tobacco use

A lot of the people against vaping bring up children and teens using these devices and then later turning to regular cigarettes in the future, which is a valid concern. However, tobacco harm reduction education in public schooling is much more efficient now. Most teens know the consequences and know its bad for their health.

6.Vaping is as harmful to your body as cigarettes

Vaping involves smoking an e-liquid made up of 4 components out of which the only substance to watch out for the nicotine. However, cigarettes are a deadly cocktail of thousands of chemicals, and it is obvious which one is more harmful. We can breathe comparatively better, keep our endurance, and have an increased sense of smell and taste, all things that were hampered by smoking.
