DIY: How to Make Your Own E-liquid

The market is full of different e-liquid flavors. There are all types of e-liquids. However, as the saying goes, nothing beats homemade. If you can’t find an e-liquid on the market to satisfy you, you can always go the DIY route.

It is easy to make your own vape juice, but it requires a lot of trial and error to get the perfect blend that will send your taste buds into overdrive. The first step is to know what an e-juice is composed of. The main ingredients in e-liquids are vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG), nicotine, and flavorings.

Vegetable Glycerin (VG)

It is not mandatory to add VG in your e-juice. You can make an e-liquid with only PG, nicotine, and flavoring. You can also choose to skip PG and make a 100% vegetable glycerin e-liquid. Cloud chasers prefer MAX VG blends.

Vegetable glycerin has a sweet taste so it can affect the flavor of your e-juice. It is also quite thick. E-liquids with a MAX VG ratio create lots of vapor.

The ratio of VG/PG to use depends on whether you are looking to get a rich flavor or massive cloud production. For instance, an e-liquid with a VG/PG ratio of 90/10 will have abundant cloud production, but the high VG may affect the taste of thee-juice. Vegetable glycerin is quite smooth an tends to tone down the throat hit that you will get from e-liquids.

Propylene Glycol (PG)

Just like VG, when you’re mixing vape juice, it is not always necessary to add PG. Propylene glycol is a tasteless liquid, and it is quite thin. PG does not affect the flavor of the e-juice. And it will not give you lots of vapor. A MAX PG e-liquid will allow you to enjoy the flavor of your e-juice to the fullest. Propylene glycol can increase the intensity of the throat hit you get from an e-juice.


You may already be familiar with nicotine. It is the stuff in tobacco that acts as a stimulant. Nicotine is what gives you a buzz and throat hit when you are vaping an e-juice. The quantity of nicotine you add to your e-liquid will determine the intensity of the throat hit and nic buzz that you will experience. You can choose to create a nicotine-free e-juice.


You can add any flavor to your e-juice blend. It can be a single flavor, two flavors or a combination of different flavors. For instance, you can make an e-juice with only apple flavor, or you can mix apple, orange, pineapple, mango, etc.

Mixing Your Ingredients to Make Fantastic Combos

If you do not want to go through the hassle of making your e-liquids, check out http://slimsejuice.com. You will find many fantastic e-liquids at this store that you can mix to create something unique.

For example, if you one apple and one orange e-liquid, you can mix them together to create an apple-orange e-juice. You can choose to create a blend of 40% apple and 60% orange or 50% apple and 50% orange. With trial and error, you’ll find the combination that best satisfies your taste buds.

If you choose to make your e-juice from scratch, the first thing you must decide on is the bottle capacity, then the percentage of flavoring. You can use online calculators to determine the proper amount of each ingredient to add. You’ll have to decide on the percentage of the total blend that the flavoring will take up.

You’ll then have to decide whether to add nicotine or not. If you’re not adding nicotine, the next question is whether you will add propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin or only one of them. Use a calculator to determine the quantity of each ingredient to add in your e-juice.

As I noted above, mastering the art of making e-liquids is a matter of trial and error. Keep a record of all the combinations until you find the perfect blend.
