Why wait until someone makes the perfect e-liquid while you can do it yourself? With do-it-yourself or DIY articles you can get started with mixing e-liquid for a unique vapor experience. On this page you will find all the accessories you need to get started, below we provide some information for DIY beginners.
How do you make e-liquid yourself?
There are already many types of e-liquid on the market, but it is possible that you are looking for something else. With DIY you determine the exact composition yourself, so you know what you vaped. Let us briefly list the standard ingredients of e-liquid:
- Base liquid: This is a basic liquid such as Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerine (PG). These are the main components of e-liquids. Both liquids have unique characteristics such as the thickness of the liquid, and also the feeling in the mouth and throat differs. A larger proportion of PG will be present with MTL fluids that are used at a higher resistance. This gives a more powerful "throat hit" but can also lead to respiratory irritations faster. Both PG and VG can in principle be inhaled safely.
- Aroma: You can add all kinds of aromas to the base in different concentrations. From standard tobacco to fresh fruit flavors. It is also possible to make combinations of different aromas with which you can create complex, layered flavors.
- Nicotine: It is certainly an option to vaporize without nicotine, yet former smokers often need this highly addictive substance. With a nicotine booster you can add this substance to the liquid. The use of nicotine is not recommended for non-smokers.
To mix the liquids you need to use clean bottles, make sure you always work under hygienic conditions.
Another interesting do-it-yourself project is making coils. You also need a resistance wire or kanthal wire, and a wick such as organic cotton. In addition, there are special tools to turn the coils neatly. This requires some practice, yet it is not that complicated to make atomizers yourself. Please note, you are working on electrical equipment and heating different materials!
