Here’s what you’re going to need
You are going to need a handful of things before you dive right into making your own e-juice, including specific tools and ingredients that you will combine together to produce the finished product.
For starters, you’re going to need empty plastic bottles with “dropper” style nozzles on the end that you can create, mix, and store your new e-juice in. You’ll also want to get your hands on syringes so that you can effortlessly refill these little bottles with the e-juice that you have created, making the overall process a lot smoother.
As far as ingredients are concerned, you’ll need a Vegetable Glycerin or Propylene Glycol foundation to act as the base of your new e-juice, diluted nicotine to the strength that you are looking for (make sure you don’t go overboard or you can ruin everything), and different flavor additives that you will be able to purchase in an unlimited combination of tastes.
Other additives – like mentholated liquid, sweets, vodka, and even just distilled water – can be mixed into your e-juice to change the taste, texture, or mouth feel, and with a little bit of experimentation you’ll be able to settle on something really perfect for you!
At the end of the day, making your own e-juice is about as easy as it gets. Just find a recipe you’d like to try, symbol your tools and your ingredients, follow that recipe to the letter the first time out before experimenting later down the line, and you’ll be good to go.
