Bases are the basic substance of every e-cigarette liquid. Mixed with one or more flavours, you can create countless exciting flavours. You decide what you want to steam! All our bases are available with or without nicotine. At my-eLiquid we offer bases ready mixes to which you only have to add the flavours of your choice, as well as the individual bases raw materials with which you can influence the development of steam and taste.
Of course, the self-mixing of liquids requires some skill, but leaves plenty of room for creativity and individual wishes. On your mark, get set, get mixed up!
There’s no doubt: what kind of liquid tastes best is the most exciting yet most difficult question for each vaper. There’s an endless range of different liquids and everyone has another favorite one. Selecting one flavor depends not only on the situation, the season but also on your personality. What about some tobacco flavored e-liquid? Or a refreshing fruit flavored one? You prefer a liquid inspired by your preferred drink? You are the only one to choose!
That’s a question only you have the answer to. There are countless different flavors and when combinedno two custom blends taste alike. So you have so many options when deciding to mix two or more flavors. When relaxing in the sun you might prefer a cooling flavor such as some menthol flavored fruity one. Cold cuddly winter nights however will get even more comfortable with a gingerbread or baked apple flavor. So don’t hesitate and start finding your own exciting flavors today!
Until you have found the right ratio of bases to obtain the desired taste and steam development, it may take a few trials. Don't let this discourage you. Tips and tricks can be found in our "Good to know" section or our blog. We are also happy to advise you on site in one of our two branches in Munich.
All raw materials for DIY bases from my-eLiquid are offered exclusively in high purity and are also used for my-eLiquid's own liquids. A base, the basic mixture for the eLiquid, consists of propylene glycol (PG), glycerine (vegetableGlycerine VG) as well as distilled water and nicotine on request. If you are allergic to PG, you can also use polyethylene glycol 400 (PEG) instead of PG. PG, VG and PEG are substances that occur in everyday life, for example in cosmetics or food, and are classified as harmless. Nicotine levels range from 0mg/ml (nicotine-free) to 18mg/ml. If you're new to steaming, we advise you to start with ready-mixed eLiquids, but if you're more familiar with steaming, you might as well try making your own DIY Liquids.
The ratio you mix PG and VG depends entirely on the effect you want. While PG has excellent dissolving power for flavours, VG is more likely to produce dense steam and tastes sweet. If aroma unfolding is more important to you or you want to steam less inconspicuously in certain places due to less steam unfolding, the percentage of PG should be higher than that of VG. A high proportion of VG, on the other hand, can produce artistic clouds and make the taste sweeter. PG and VG are each available in different nicotine strengths. The nicotine content can also be reduced or increased by different mixing ratios. In the beginning it may take some time to find the right ratio. But don't be discouraged!
First of all, the choice of nicotine strength depends on your habits. If you want to switch from smoking to steaming, you should first maintain the appropriate strength of your cigarettes. The nicotine content refers to mg per ml base. If you are unsure about the ratio you should mix to reach your target strength, use our base calculator. Heavy smokers who smoke up to two boxes a day can use up to 18mg/ml. 15 cigarettes per day correspond to a nicotine strength of 12mg. Occasional smokers usually choose 6mg/ml or less. The nicotine strength can of course be reduced over time if you want to stop smoking. Since nicotine is a very quickly addictive poison, non-smokers should definitely choose nicotine-free products.
The nicotine content of our eLiquids is expressed in millilitres.
First of all, if you have decided to switch from smoking to steaming, the cost will seem large at first. There is a wide price range for the equipment, but better quality products will also be more durable. If you have smoked a pack of cigarettes a day, your cost will be at least €1825 per year. If you choose a rechargeable e-cigarette, you already save around 80€. If you choose a vaporizer with tank system, the savings are even higher. Liquids worth 7€ will last you about two weeks. If you now produce your liquids yourself with the DIY bases from my-eLiquid, you will save even more! Invest your saved money in a nice holiday and switch to steam!
