DIY E Liquid Blending
Do-It-Yourself (DIY) E liquid is becoming more and more popular nowadays. Some of the reasons people start mixing their own e liquid include saving money, inventing their own flavours, finding their perfect cloud juice to work best with the tank they use or simply because they want a nicotine strength that they can't get anywhere else.
Will DIY Blending Save Me Money?
DIY blending is a tricky process and shouldn't be undertaken lightly. Firstly, what can start out as saving you money can soon start costing more and more as you start to delve into different flavour combinations and investing in more and more concentrates. Soon your front room will start looking something like a mixing lab. Secondly, it can be a long winded process coming up with flavour combinations that work well together. Mixing two flavours could come up with something brilliant but could also create something terrible which is just a waste of perfectly good juice.
There are plenty of tutorials and online calculators which will help you to work out what percentage of what ingredient to add to give the desired end result so it takes some of the maths out of the problem for you however you still need to be accurate with your measurements.
Is DIY Blending Safe?
The short answer is, relatively safe. What you need to remember is that Nicotine is a harmful chemical and should be handled with extreme care and kept out of the reach of children and pets etc... Whilst you shouldn't be able to buy pure nicotine from anywhere without the proper certification to say you can safely handle it even using diluted nicotine such as the 7.2% most DIY blenders use it can still be dangerous. Not just from inhalation or swallowing in fact nicotine is most dangerous when absorbed through the skin.
What you need to remember when DIY blending is double check all your sums to make sure your not adding too much nicotine and wear protective clothing such as gloves and goggles.
