What is the DIY ?

DIY, what is it?

The DIY  is an alternative mode of consumption which is to make its own e-liquid for electronic cigarette. E-liquid is called a liquid ready to be vape having a base Propylene Glycol (PG) and / or Vegetable Glycerin (VG), which may contain concentrated flavors, additives and possibly nicotine. Design its own e-liquid for the determination flavors to choose its base and nicotine levels to create a unique e-liquid and fully adapted to its way of vaper and tastes. It is also the opportunity to play the apprentice chemist testing and inventing new flavors.

DIY is economical and probably easier than you think, then start blogging!

The Do It Yourself, in summary form, is simply:

• add drops of concentrated flavors in a neutral base (with or without nicotine)

• wait (minimum 24) to allow time for the flavors to express,

• and enjoy …

What are the advantages of DIY?

Realize its own e-liquid is a decision that may be motivated by several factors. The lack of transparency in the composition of e-liquids or trade the desire to achieve an original taste can be one. Add also the willingness to make very significant savings over the long term or the simple pleasure of it-yourself revenues. The main factors that cause fumes to embark on DIY:

• know and master the composition of its e-liquid,

• realize infinite combinations, thanks to the wide choice of flavors, bases and additives,

• the satisfaction of having done one’s own e-liquid,

• precise dosing of its PG or VG basis according to their tastes,

• choosing a suitable packaging to consumption: 10ml, 30ml, 50ml, 100ml …
