Mixing Vape Juice – The Basics

If there is one thing we know about the vaping industry, it’s that the variety of e-liquid flavors to choose from is absolutely endless. From rich n’ nutty tobaccos to an array of succulent fruits to even savory n’ sugary desserts, the market has got something for just about everything we could crave.

But, at the same time, you’re now seeing a growing trend among the vaping community, and that would be mixing vape juices. The concept is pretty self-explanatory – you take two (or more) vape juice formulas and mix them together to come up with a unique and fully customized e-juice flavor profile.

How to Mix Your Vape Juice

What’s awesome about mixing vape juice is how easy it is. You don’t need to be an experienced DIY vaper to pull off a fantastic mix. And it’s also very subjective. The rules are lax because ultimately, it really is about coming up with a mix that satisfies you and nobody else.

So, what do you need to get started? 

Ideally, you want a mixing bowl, a small whisk, and some empty vape juice bottles. Used vape juice bottles that are empty can work, as long as you thoroughly clean them out by submerging them in an alcohol solution first so that all remnants of the old flavor are gone – and don’t forget to rinse. If you plan on making larger quantities, you can find empty juice bottles in all sizes for sale at many vape shops online

Now, it’s time to get mixing. 

Start with two flavors max – more than that, and you can end up with a muddy-tasting e-liquid as a beginner. And from there, pour the desired amounts of each e-liquid into your mixing bowl, mix, and voila – it’s time to pour your new mix into an empty bottle and get vaping.

Mixing E-Juice Flavors: How to Determine the Ratio

One thing you might be wondering is how much of each e-liquid to add to your recipe. And, again, there’s no real rule here. It all depends on what kind of flavor you want and how you want the balance to be. We recommend experimenting with different ratios of different flavors, as some recipes benefit from a 1:1 ratio and others more like a 3:1 ratio, depending on what you ultimately want the e-liquid to taste like.

Flavors that Work Well Together

If you’re totally new to the concept of flavor mixing, let’s help you get started with some flavor blends that are just about foolproof.

Flavors that Work Well TogetherNow that you know the basics of mixing vape juice, let’s discuss what you need to remember before starting that new ‘flavorful’ hobby.

Some Final Key Tips to Keep in MindMost of you already know that freebase nicotine and salt-based nicotine e-liquids can’t be blended. How come? Well, because each type of e-juice requires a distinctive configuration in terms of your device’s output level and its coil resistance level, or else it won’t vaporize properly. Mixing the two types of nicotine will result in a really unsuccessful vape.

Key Tip 2: Consider the VG/PG Ratio of Each

If you have a preferred VG/PG ratio when you vape, make sure to maintain that ratio by blending two vape juices that have the same one.

Key Tip 3: Pay Attention to the Nicotine Strengths

Similarly, if you have a specific preference for a nicotine strength, ensure that the nicotine strengths of the e-liquids you are mixing match one another.

Key Tip 4: Don’t Make Massive Batches for a New Blend

If you’re trying out a new flavor combo for the first time, resist the urge to make a giant batch. That way, if it turns out that the flavor combo just doesn’t work, you won’t have wasted a whole lot of e-juice.

Key Tip 5: Avoid Using Poorly Made, Cheap Vape Juice 

Mixing a really low-quality vape juice with a high-quality one won’t give you a great vape – it’s like the old adage about one bad apple. Stick to premium vape juices sold from a reputable vape shop, vape shop online, or an eLiquid depot.

Key Tip 6: Take Notice That This Won’t Work with Disposable Vape Pens

If you’re using a disposable vape pen, or even pre-filled vape pods, you won’t be able to mix e-liquids together. It’s never advisable to open up a piece of vaping hardware that’s not meant to be opened up, so resist the temptation to mix the e-liquids in these closed pod systems together.

Happy Mixing!

If you feel like there’s a flavor you’d love to vape but can’t find on the market, nothing is stopping you from making it yourself with some existing e-juices blended together. It’s a great way to take your vaping hobby to a new level and experience flavor satisfaction like never before.

And, as you can see, the entire process is actually extremely simple, requiring no prior juice-making experience. All you gotta do is find some high-quality vape juices and see what happens when you mix them. Once you get the hang of it, you can start making large batches that are fully customized to your taste buds, all without having to put a ton of effort into the process.
