When you take up vaping, you will find that you need to ensure you have stock of everything you need to vape contentedly, or you can run out and risk smoking cigarettes again. There are many places where you can purchase vaping supplies, including high street stores and online retailers. However, you can also consider making vape juice yourself at home, which is quick and easy to do. Below are the ingredients and equipment you will need and where you can get them to help you get started and begin creating some delicious vape juices at home.
Shopping For Supplies
You will find the easiest way to get everything you need to make your delicious e liquid at home is by shopping online. The ingredients and equipment are readily available from various sources, but you may not be able to get everything from the same store. The supplies that you are going to need are as follows, and some of them you may already have:
- Bottles For Your E-Liquids
- Measuring Jug
- Mixing Bowl
- Propylene Glycol
- Vegetable Glycerine
- Liquid Nicotine
- A Pipette
- Mixing Spoon
Once you have all the supplies you need, including the flavourings you want to try, you can start the process of making your vape juice at home.
Mixing The Ingredients
You will need to consider the type of vape juice you will make and its PG/VG ratio, and the details below are for an e-liquid with a 50/50 ratio. You will need to measure out equal amounts of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine and put these into the mixing container together. The next step is to measure out the liquid nicotine, and the amount you will need will depend on how strong you want your vape juice to be. If you make 100ml of vape juice with a nicotine strength of around 6mg, you will need about 33ml of liquid nicotine. The recipe’s final step is to add the flavourings you want to use, and there are many options available. The measure of flavour required will depend on the strength of taste you want and the concentration of the flavourings you have. Mix everything thoroughly, and you are ready to move on to the next step.
Putting Your Vape Juice Into Bottles
The final step of the process will be to measure your vape juice and put it into suitable-sized bottles that will be easy to use. You can purchase empty bottles online or reuse old ones that you have, which saves on the plastic you put into landfills. Once the bottles are full, you may want to try the juice to ensure it will be suitable and that there are plenty of flavours. However, you need to keep in mind that you will need to wait a week or so before you get the full flavour, so if it tastes a little weak, do not worry.
Storing Your Vape Juice
Once you have filled all the bottles and had a little taste, you will need to store your vape juice and let it mature before you start using it. You want to keep it in a cool and dark place for around a week before it will be ready and keep it out of direct sunlight. After a week, it will be ready to try, and you need to ensure that you give the bottle a thorough shake before putting it in your vaping device.
