Homemade Eliquids: A Guide to Mixing Your Perfect Vape Juice

These past few years made vaping so increasingly popular that it’s almost hard to find a person without a vaping device in their hands today. The vaping industry went sky high over the last couple of years.

Nowadays, there are so many different concoctions and flavors on the market to choose from that those new to vaping have a tough time choosing the ones they like. However, for those who are ripe vapers, the best option is to mix their own e-liquid at home.

Fortunately, with so many different brands on the offer, it’s extremely easy to find all options, materials, and items you need to start mixing your own best vape juice. There are a couple of ways to mix your own juice, so let’s get down to it right away.

Choose from the Best Homemade E-Liquid Options Available

The options you have available depend on where you live. If you live in a place where vaping is popular, chances are you’ll have a lot of homemade e-liquid recipes to choose from. Head over to the local headshop of your choice and get yourself a Home kit for mixing homemade vape juice.

These kits are quite affordable, so you shouldn’t be having any problems with the price. The kit contains all the necessary juices and tools you need to start your home mixing. Expect the following items in your kit:

  • Liquid Nicotine (or some suitable product)
  • Essential or flavoring oils
  • Vegetable Glycerin (VG)
  • Propylene Glycol (PG)

If you’re into bareboned home vape juice mixing, you’ll only need two essential ingredients: PG and VG. Almost every vape juice contains one of these liquids or a combination of the two. Now, both VG and PG will determine the flavor profile of your e-liquid.

So, you have to get the ratio right to achieve the flavor you want. The most common ratios include:

  • 70% PG – 30% VG
  • 50% PG – 50% VG
  • 30% PG – 70% VG

Since there is no right ratio, it depends on you. Don’t be afraid of experimenting until you find the perfect combination of flavor, strength, and texture that suits your vaping needs. In fact, the best way to discover a perfect vape juice is by experimenting.

VG and PG are the substances that make your vape juice vapable. After you take care of the ratio, it’s time to infuse your mixture with essential oils. Either order them online or get them in the apothecary.

If you want to add a bit of a twist to your juice, add in cannabis, nicotine, or any other solvent of your choice to make the mix even smoother. To successfully infuse the oils, you’ll need:

  • A vile
  • Droppers

Infuse Your Homemade E-Liquid

The next step in your homemade e-liquid mixing journey is the infusion. There are different recipes you can try at home, but people usually go with the most common infusions, such as:

  • Nicotine infusion
  • Essential oil infusion
  • Cannabis infusion (THC or CBD)

Each of these infusions serves an entirely different purpose. Aside from being the most common infusions on the market, these infusions suit different needs of vapers. If you’re craving nicotine, the nicotine infusion is precisely what you need to find the pleasure you need in vaping.

That’s how smokers handle their nicotine cravings when they quit smoking, as vaping turned out to be the best alternative to smoking tobacco. On the other hand, people are very into cannabis infusions, especially CBD.

With more and more evidence of the benefits of using CBD oil, cannabis infusions can be used as a treatment for many different medical conditions, including improved concentration, stress and depression management, so much more.

Choose Your Flavor Combination

The last thing on the list is to choose your favorite flavor combination. Since this entirely depends on your personal preference, start by choosing between the two most popular flavor combinations – fruit-flavor profiles and dairy-flavor profiles.

Now, you’re about to face quite a difficult choice, as choosing between your favorite flavor profiles is one of the biggest challenges of mixing your own vape juice. The top dairy-flavor profiles include all the goodies such as ice creams, milkshakes, and cereal tastes. On the other hand, fruit-flavor profiles lean more toward the flavor of strawberry, banana, lime, orange, and so on.

The most popular combinations include berries, peppermint menthol, banana cream, and blueberry lemonade.


Now that you know everything about mixing your own vape juice, the last tip we have for you is to experiment as much as you can. Try different combinations of flavors, compare different ratios, try different infusion combinations, and so on.

The more you get creative, the better your homemade vape juice will be. Surprise your friends and become a real professional by mixing your very own homemade vape juice.
