I am an e-liquid fuss pot.

Self-confessed and weirdly proud of it. I am also very lucky, as I work surrounded by some of the very best e-liquid available, this further spurs on my e-liquid fussiness.

This is why the idea of DIY e-liquid appealed to me. The ability to tweak my e-liquid to my exact fussy specifications, make up a 5ml sample, then a 10ml, 20ml or even 50ml bottle with my perfect mix, then on to concocting another weird and wonderful e-liquid flavour combination.

It is actually extremely simple to mix your own e-liquid, below are 3 tips to help you master DIY e-liquid;

Research, research, research.

Like many things in the vaping world, mixing your own e-liquid can appear complex at first. Whereas in reality, it is as easy as following a recipe. My first tip is research, research, research and when you think you have researched enough, research some more. Read about the ins and outs of DIY e-liquid and how it can be tailored to suit you. There is a wealth of information on the website and forum for people new to the world of DIY e-liquid.

You might just be surprised at how simple it can be to create your new favourite e-liquid.

Get your supplies – you only need the basics to get started.

To mix your own e-liquid you will need three ingredients; nicotine, diluent and flavouring (and some bottles to mix it in – thankfully our mixing kits come with everything you need to get started).

Now here is where you don’t want to skimp. You only want the highest quality mix your own e-liquid supplies. Think about it, this is your e-liquid, you vape it every day, you want to know where it has come from. You are in luck with TW as we only supply our customers with UK sourced, pharmaceutical grade ingredients.

Once you have got to grips with mixing you own e-liquid and are confident with the recipes you create, you can buy some mixing cylinders and make batches of 50ml at a time. Now, personally I don’t do this due to the e-liquid fussy gene, but it’s great for people who like to be prepared.

Imagination – this is the fun bit.

Let your imagination run wild, with our gold standard flavour concentrates there are tens of thousands of possible flavour combinations. Now this doesn’t mean you have to use them all, you could go for a straight mandarin or mix seven flavours to make the ultimate fruit punch.

The possibilities are endless and this is the beauty of DIY e-liquid, you can tweak your mix ratios for the perfect amount of throat hit to vapour and flavour.

Just don’t try e-liquid roulette (adding the dregs of remaining e-liquid into one bottle to see what happens) it always ends in tears…trust me!

So there you have it, see I told you it was easy. Have a look on the site and visit the forum. It’s full of recipes and useful info. Happy mixing!
