Nicotine shot mixing guide

In our Beginners Guide to DIY E-liquid mixing, we outlined how to mix an e-liquid using 48mg and 72mg Nicotine solution. It is the exact same principle using nicotine shots if you treat them as an 18mg nicotine solution and adjust the recipes accordingly.

 

The main advantage of using a nicotine shot is when mixing in a 30ml Bottle at strengths of 3mg, 6mg and 12mg. It makes it very easy to measure how much nicotine to add to your mix as follows:

 

  • To make a 30ml bottle of 3mg E-Liquid – 5ml of an 18mg Nic Shot is required (half a bottle)
  • To make a 30ml bottle of 6mg E-Liquid – 10ml of an 18mg Nic Shot is required (a full bottle)
  • To make a 30ml bottle of 12mg E-Liquid – 20ml of an 18mg Nic Shot is required (two bottles)

 

The measurements shown below are round numbers therefore adding the right amount of nicotine to your mix is fairly straightforward. Please refer to the table below referring to the nicotine solution measurements for different bottle sizes.
