How to Mix E-Liquid

So, as you have seen, we have a LOT of new concentrates out ... in fact, our entire range is available now as concentrates!

And we have been inundated with Mixing questions ...

So, we thought we would write it all down for you in one place, so it was easy to see and read at your leisure!

So, you are going to have a go at mixing? Why not?! It can save you money, and as long as it is done right, you should get a great batch of our Juice!

First things first, cleanliness and safety!
Make sure you do all your mixing in a sterile environment (No pets or other contaminants in the vicinity) Sterilise all your equipment before using it. At the end of the day, this is going straight into your lungs, so make sure it is CLEAN!
Safety first, Nicotine should be handled with care! Always wear gloves, and when not in use, keep in a cool dark place. Make sure you wear gloves, to keep your hands safe, and make the mixing more sterile.

In any E-Liquid, there are 4 main components ... Vegetable Glycerine (VG), Propylene Glycol (PG), Nicotine and Flavourings. Yours should be no different (Unless using no nicotine, then remove that!)

So, you need to get all the things you will need to mix with!

  • VG (Vegetable Glycerine)
  • PG (Propylene Glycol)
  • Concentrate (as we are using a pre mixed 'one shot' style concentrate)
  • Nic Hits - enough for your desired nicotine level
  • Bottles - to mix in.
  • Syringes - to measure with, so we can be accurate!

Now it is time to mix!
The easiest way is to start with the concentrate. Use a syringe (unless mixing by weight, which we will go into, in a further post!) to measure the exact amount of concentrate for your mix.
A great tool, is e-Liquid Calculator, where you simply pop in the concentrate percentages and Nicotine, and it works out the rest! It is great for new and veteran mixers, alike!

So, lets say we are making a 120ML of Strawberry Shortcake.

Strawberry Shortcake is mixed at 15% and has a recommended steep time of 14 days (Although Nikki likes it fresh, so maybe try a little when you have mixed it, and see what you think!)

So, for this, you would need in the bottle (Presuming we are a 3MG nicotine vape at 70/30)

  • 18ML of Strawberry Shortcake Concentrate
  • 12ML of PG
  • 70ML of VG
  • 20ML of Nic Hit (Or two bottles)

So ... you have added everything, now you need to give it a REALLY good shake! Literally, the more shaking, the better ... just remember to put a lid on the top!!!

Now, steep time, which we have briefly mentioned before ... what is it?

Steeping is the process of allowing the flavours to mix, so that you get the best possible flavour from your E-Liquid. This is best done at room temperature in the dark ... so pop it upright in a drawer, and forget about it!
To aid the process, shake it every day, and maybe give it a little breathe (This is where you take the lid off, and literally allow the liquid to breathe! BUT PLEASE make sure it is out of the reach of children and pets, and make sure it won't be knocked over, as otherwise, all your hard work has gone to waste!)

Steep times vary, and custards and bakery will take longer than fruity ones, as they do not require as much time for the flavours to mix. (But each bottle tells you how long to steep for, so don't worry! And these are just a guide!)

Well done! You have done your first mix!
