DIY Mixing - a Beginner’s Guide

April 9, 2019

 

Those of you who know the Subohm Team will know we really enjoy the DIY side of Vaping, particularly mixing our own E Liquids. This can seem like quite a big step to a lot of junior vapers, which is understandable as you’re dealing with potentially dangerous chemicals. So we’ve outlined our top tips.

 

Safety First - this seems like quite a basic point but it’s notsomething that should ever be overlooked. We recommend always wearing latex gloves for mixing, to avoid nicotine being exposed to skin. Also, do it in a safe and clean mixing area not on the back seat of the 42 bus, which I once saw.

 

Purchase your kits from a reputable source - The idea of bulk buying cheap liquid can seem like a real plus, as most of us beginmixing our own flavours as a money saving tactic. That doesn’t mean you should scrimp on price altogether as some available mixes are volatile and not tested to the same high standards you’d expect from ready-made E liquids. As always invest in your hobby.

 

Steeping - all good things take time. This is no truer than DIY mixing. A good wine can take years to mature. We’re lucky that a good solid E Liquid takes only a few weeks. If you’re unsure information is usually available directly from the company. On average about two to four weeks is about right.

 

Always be ready to experiment! A high amount of concentrate might be right for one person but not necessary another. Remember to take a walk on the wild side - this is supposed to be fun! If all of this seems like too much hard work remember a large number of companies are creating ‘one shots’ - that makes mixing as simple as pouring a bottle of nicotine into a PG/VG solution.
