In the simplest terms possible, preparing your e-juice requires you to mix a base liquid of VG and PG, flavor concentrates, and nicotine. However, you don’t necessarily require all of these depending on the type of e-juice you are preparing. If you are making a nicotine-free e-liquid or even unflavored, you don’t need nicotine, or the flavor concentrates.
The idea of making your e-juice might sound overwhelming;
however, that’s not the case. You don’t need to know advanced chemistry for you to make your own e-juice line. It’s like making a cocktail. Before making an e-juice line, you should know how to prepare the e-juice line. The following tips will guide you on making your e-juice line.
Before commencing, it is recommended that you take into
account several precautions. One vital caution to consider is that nicotine has to be handled with care. Ensure you have your gloves on when handling nicotine. In case it spills on your hand, wash it off immediately and thoroughly. That’s said, you can proceed to the next step.
Step 1: Apparatus and Ingredients
First, there are several ingredients and apparatus you need
to have for you to make your e-juice line. They include; nicotine, propylene
glycol, vegetable glycerin, a bit of flavoring, syringes, several empty
bottles, and gloves for handling nicotine.
Step 2: Determine the strength of nicotine
Determining the concentration of nicotine will help you know
how much nicotine you’ll need. Try and be accurate because not getting the
right strength will end up with low-quality e-juice. First thing, is to
determine the milligrams of nicotine required. This will help know what
quantity of diluted nicotine you require.
Step 3: Extract the nicotine from the container
Put on your gloves and transfer the nicotine to your bottle.
You’ll achieve this by using a syringe to extract the required amount from the
container. If you are preparing 8mg/ml, you’ll need to extract 16ml from the
container containing nicotine.
Step 4: Choose the flavors you wish to add
You’ll need to add flavors to your e-juice. There are several flavor combinations, so you can choose the flavor you want.
Step 5: Measure the flavor concentrate and transfer to the
The recommended amount of flavors needed is 10%. So, if you
are making 40mls of e-juice, you will need 4ml of flavor. Ensure you use a
different and clean syringe for measuring and transferring the flavor
concentrate to the bottle the same way you did with the nicotine.
Step 6: Measure and add the diluent
Add a diluent or base to complete your e-juice. You are adding this because the e-juice already contains a lot of PG from flavoring and nicotine. The ideal diluent to use is VG.
Step 7: Put the drip tip and shake the bottle
Put a drip tip to the bottle then shake the bottle
vigorously. Ensure you shake it for several minutes as you want to be sure that the flavors and nicotine are well mixed.
Step 8: Creating the e-juice line
Now that you have your e-juice proceed to create your line
