Making Your Own e-Juice: Why You Shouldn't

Just like bathtub moonshine, creating e-Liquids from scratch is a task best left to the professionals. However, it is understandably intriguing to wonder how e-juice is made and if you could do it yourself. At eJuice Direct, we know the vaping community is full of smart adults who value their safety so this goes without saying, but please don’t try to make e-Liquid at home. Our time in quarantine may spark the desire to start a new hobby, but we recommend sticking to something a little less messy, such as knitting, reading, or vaping! Formulating e-juice is a tricky process that brands have mastered at a mass-production level, and the mixologists behind the bottles are scientists and chemists who know what they are doing. For the everyday vape user, the hassle and cost of creating e-juice might not be worth it, considering e-Liquids and nicotine salt vape juices are so affordable at eJuice Direct! That being said, it can be done, but the cost is astronomical compared to the cost of buying vape juice from an authorized retailer like eJuice Direct. With that in mind, let’s dive into what it would take to make your own e-juice!

Making Your Own e-Liquid

Step One: VG and PG Typically, the Vegetable Glycerin and Propylene Glycol that make up the bulk of e-Liquid are only available in wholesale drums, and they can run up to around $1,000 total. Step Two: Flavor and nicotine Additives like flavorings and nicotine can cost upwards of $500 in the quantity you would need to correspond with the drums of VG and PG. Step Three: The Result Several hundred dollars and countless hours of labor later, you will have about 208,000mL of e-Liquid, which is enough for around 2,080 chubby bottles. So now what do you do? You can either apply to become an authorized vape juice retailer, or you can try your best to vape it yourself and end up with buckets of expired e-juice in about twelve months.

All in all, this experiment is probably a bust.

All this being said, making your own e-juice sounds like fun but is likely an expensive project that ends with a mess. So why go through all this hassle when you can just shop e-juice at eJuice Direct? There are many reasons vape enthusiasts may want to create their own e-Liquids, but unless you have an ISO Certified lab, a few thousand dollars burning a hole in your pocket, and a lot of time on your hands, it is just not worth it. Not to mention the danger of handling excess amounts of nicotine, this adventure is best left to authorized vape juice manufacturers. eJuice Direct thanks you for vaping responsibly and buying your official e-juice from an authorized retailer. If you have any questions about vape juice and why making your own is not the best idea, reach out to our Customer Care Team, and our staff will help you get the answers you need. Stay safe out there, and happy vaping!
