DIY (Do It Yourself) Flavors

Many people I have read about in the e-cig forums, make their own DIY, e-liquids to vape. There are a number of reasons that people do this. Some do it to save money, and others may just like to do things themselves to know what all is in it. Others, do it just for something to do. After reading about them making their own flavors, and having fun doing it, I started reading up, so I could start making my own. It does take some reading to learn what to do and what not to do. Please read a lot before considering having a go at your own DIY e liquids, to keep you and your family safe.

I went to a site that sells bulk flavors, and the VG, PG, and nicotine, and a few of the tools needed for the job, and waited… I did a lot more reading in the mean time, trying to find recipes for the 22 flavors I ordered. (why start simple…)

It came in in just a few short days, and I had to get myself busy to see how it would go. I set up a table in my garage, which is also my office. I went to the store and picked up some glass measuring beakers, and some rubber gloves.

NOTE: You should probably ware safety glasses or goggles, and a long sleeve lab type coat for skin and eye protection. The reason I say this, is because I bought 100 MG nicotine liquid, and when it is that strong, it is also very deadly. Even from splashing on your skin. It soaks in, and your screwed. So BE VERY CAREFUL… You do not want to end up in the hospital, or with a dead pet, or child.

My wife loves this banana nut bread mix we get down at the flea market, and I love a Marlboro liquid that they have. It is a good 75 miles or more round trip, so we can’t just run down whenever we want. This prompted me to make sure to try making good flavors that we could vape instead of having to drive all that way, every time we ran low. The drive in my truck is pretty costly, before making any purchases. I made sure to get her banana nut bread, along with every tobacco flavor they had for one brand, and a bunch of other flavors that just sounded good.

If your going to mix your own e liquids, make sure to get a good calculator like one by e juice me up. Available for free here: http://www.ejuice.breaktru.com   It will make the nicotine and other calculations very simple, and you can save all your own recipes so when you have one that works, you can simply open it back up and do it again.  Also, it comes with a ton of recipes at their website that you can download for free, and use.   They allow users to send in their recipes for others to use as well as many that are posted by the software developer.

Oh man,,, when you first open that 100 mg nicotine, make sure you are in a well ventilated area, and/OR, wear a vapor respirator. That stuff will sting your nose now, let me tell you. Also, after reading more, I see many people dilute it down and store it at about 50 mg. I left mine at 100, because it is real simple to figure the math that way. I may change over at some other time, but for now it remains the same, 100 mg strength.

Read my other blogs to see my flavor reviews, and product reviews. I have a ton of flavors to review, and more will be on the way as time passes, so there should always be fresh postings on the site.

Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Vaping!
