Get in here if you’ve had thought of how to make your own e-liquid. Well, you’re not alone. This is a drawbridge that every veteran vape user has had to cross? Why? When contending with Vapes that often don’t meet up with standards or adverts, most users finally come to the realization: DIY Vape juice is actually not a bad idea. However, making your own e-liquid isn’t all rainbows and unicorns. Users will have to contend with various materials, and will often make mistakes which might prove disastrous to their health. Yes, it’s a tough journey. However, you can make it easier while reducing the cost and time spent on making your own Eliquid by following this flavorah.com’s guideline.
Stage 1: Calculation stage
After knowing the ingredients you don’t just start mixing them together. Rather, have an idea of the quantity you want to produce. This would help to calculate the volume of each ingredient to be added. Hate doing calculations? Don’t be scared as the calculation is not difficult. More so, there are devices that can help make this easy for you. All that would be done is to input the figures of your expected volume of e-liquid, VG/PG ratio and flavors, and so on. Then, the calculator helps you to convert these volumes to grams.
Stage 2: Mixing
Thankfully, the most difficult part is over once you have a mental picture of the quantity to produce, and have done the necessary calculations. This step is just a matter of combining the constituents – flavor concentrate, flavor base (VG and PG), and nicotine. Before you mix, make sure your digital scale is calibrated. Since the volume has been converted from mL to grams, it just a matter of putting each ingredient in the right weight.
Things to note while adding ingredients
Firstly, before any additional weight is added, the yard button must be pressed to clear the previous weight.
While adding any ingredient, don’t pour the drops too fast and reduce the pace as you get closer to the targeted weight.
Lastly, give the scale time to display the weight while adding each ingredient.
Now you can start by adding the flavor, nicotine, VG, and PG in that order while following the guidelines. At this point, the container should be covered properly and shook vigorously.
Stage 3: Steeping
The last process known as steeping, otherwise called curing or aging, is the process that allows the product to melt together over a period of time. During this process, adjustments can be made to get that flavor and the unique vaping feel you require and so badly deserve after putting in this amount of work. Since some flavors start off weak and later become strong, the flavor should be tested and given time preferably three to seven days before any adjustments are made.
Still, on this stage, breathing is another process that can be adopted; this involves opening the container for a few minutes. This can degrade the flavoring, especially when left for long since it allows the aroma molecules to escape but also helps the Ethyl alcohol evaporate.
Steaming is also another process to consider it involves placing the mixture in hot water. This allows the mixture to melt together smoothly and while steaming you can still open the container for a few minutes. The steaming period should be done in less than an hour since that much heat would degrade the liquid. Afterwards, the liquid should be kept in a cool dry place. This process can be repeated daily or once in two days for the first week. Time is very important in steeping.
