Making Your Own E-Liquid...

There are literally an abundance of vape juice flavors available on the market today, but even after trying them all it's understandable to want more. Many people dream of creating their own liquid so that they can customize it to their taste and get the perfect experience. However, the complexity of the process is what holds people back.
This will be a preliminary course on how you can make your own liquid. It will not contain any in-depth information and is meant to be as concise as possible – making it easy for you to expand your knowledge on the necessary sections is needed.

The Overview

Creating this liquid isn't as complex as many people make it out to be. All that is required is 4 base substances, which are: a nicotine solution, flavoring, and two diluents. These can be mixed together in different ratios to produce a variety of strengths and flavor.

The Three Pillars

Nicotine is perhaps one of the first things that you'll want to think about, it is considered to be one of the three pillars of building a good liquid solution. Nicotine solutions have quite a wide range and can be found in strengths as low as 0mg/ml all the way to 24mg/ml and even beyond. Many people try to use e-cigs as a smoking cessation device, if this is you then make sure to get a low-strength nicotine.
Flavoring is the second pillar when building a good liquid solution. There would be absolutely no taste otherwise which would take away the vast majority of pleasure that one would experience from smoking. Flavor concentrates can be found in a wide variety and you can even mix these with an infinite number of combinations.
The third and last pillar is diluents. The diluents perform three essential functions, which are: diluting the mixture, produces the vapor, and produces the “hit” that a person will feel when they inhale the vapor.

Expanding on Diluents

There are three diluents that are used very commonly, keep in mind that you should use two when you are creating your own liquid. The best diluents to use when mixing at home is probably going to be Aqueous Glycerine (AG) as this generally produces the best result and you end up with a liquid that's not too thick.
If you would like more vapor and a bit of sweetness added to the experience, you can include Vegetable Glycerine (VG). This is a thick liquid that helps to produce the effects just mentioned.
Propylene Glycol (PG) can be used if you feel that the “hit” when you inhale isn't very prominent and you would like it to be stronger. It will also accentuate the flavors that you have used.


Strength is an important aspect to take into consideration and is mostly related to the nicotine aspect of the solution. For light smokers, a solution of 12mg/ml is a good place to start, for standard one-pack-per-day smokers, 18mg/ml would be better, and lastly for heavier smokers, they might prefer to have an even stronger solution.
