If you would like to mix your own e-liquid, this DIY E Liquid Mixing Kit (12mg) has everything you need to make 120ml at a strength of 12mg.
The kit contains all the individual ingredients required including eight 18mg nicotine shots, propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, two Vapable flavour concentrates, four 30ml Unicorn bottles and all the accessories you will need.
- 8 x 10ml bottles of 18mg 50/50 PG:VG Nicotine Shots
- 100ml propylene glycol
- 100ml vegetable glycerine
- 2 x 10ml of any of our flavour concentrates
- 4 x empty 30ml unicorn bottles with long thin spout
- 1 x 10ml syringe
- 1 x 1ml syringe
- 2 x 14g long dispensing needles
- Pair of nitrile, chemical resistant gloves
Step 1. – Flavouring
A good starting percentage for our Vapable concentrates is 15%. In a 30ml bottle this equates to 4.5ml of flavouring per 30ml mix. This can be adjusted according to taste.
All our concentrates are Propylene Glycol based, so the percentage of flavouring will make up part of the overall PG percentage.
Step 2. – Nicotine
The nicotine solution provided is 18mg and needs to be diluted to achieve the desired 12mg strength. This means the overall percentage of nicotine required in the mix will be 66.7% or two thirds. In a 30ml bottle this equates to 20ml of Nicotine Shot.
The base liquid for the nicotine shot is 50/50 PG:VG.
Step 3. – PG/VG
This next step all depends on the overall ratio of PG/VG required for your mix.
The nicotine solution at 50/50 means that around 33% of PG and 33% VG is added to the overall mix.
For a 50:50 mix, for example, the overall percentage of VG required will be 50%. Taking away the 33% VG from the nicotine solution, an additional 17% needs to be added. In a 30ml bottle this equates to around 5ml of VG.
For the PG required, the overall percentage of PG based flavouring and the nicotine must be subtracted. With 15% flavouring already in the mix and 33% from the nicotine solution, an additional 2% of PG will be added to bring the overall percentage up to 50%. In a 30ml bottle this equates to around 0.5ml of PG.
To mix 30ml of 50/50 PG:VG E-liquid with 15% flavouring at 12mg is as follows:
- 4.5ml Flavour Concentrate
- 20ml Nicotine Shot
- 5ml Vegetable Glycerine
- 0.5ml Propylene Glycol
