Our Base Mix range has been designed to do the hard bit of mixing, measuring the PG and VG ratios. The premixed bottles are ideal for those looking to start mixing their own e-liquid but there are a few things to note.

To make your own e-liquid you need to add concentrate flavourings and NicIt Up if nicotine is desired.

Always use our simple e-liquid calculator to get the right ratios. Once you have your measurements you’ll need to use a syringe for each individual ingredient.

Do note that with the Base Mix your PG/VG ratios aren’t customisable and once you add the flavour concentrates and nicotine the mixture will be adjusted.

For instance, when you’re making a 100ml of e-liquid with a 50/50 bottle you’ll need to add 20ml of flavourings to 80ml of your Base Mix. Adding that 20ml will then take your mixture to 60PG/40VG mixture which is ideal for pen-style devices.

The PG is the element that gives flavour to e-liquid whilst the VG is the part that makes a vape smooth. Therefore, the lower VG does make it suitable for simpler kits.

On the other hand, with a 70/30 mixture adding the same amount as above will produce a 40PG/60VG mixture. This is more suitable for larger devices with coils that support the thicker liquid.

For those who want e-liquid with nicotine, you may further adjust the mixture, but this depends on the ratios in the NicIt Up. We sell a 50/50, 70/30 and 80/20 mixture of 18mg in a 10ml bottle. The 50/50 bottle will have little effect on the PG/VG ratio whilst the higher ratios may increase the VG level.

The Base Mix takes the hard bit out and makes mixing your own e-liquid much simpler. However, the PG/VG mix will alter when flavourings and nicotine are mixed into the Base Mix. Even if the mix is diluted you will have e-liquid that can be used in small and large devices. It just means the ratios aren’t customisable like they would be if you mixed every ingredient out.
