Do you want to understand how to dilute a concentrated flavour for electronic cigarettes? Here are our tips for creating your mixes.
Suppose you have decided to try mixing an e-liquid base with an electronic cigarette flavour concentrate as part of your vaping experience in addition to ready-made vape liquids. In that case, you are probably wondering how to dose it correctly.
How do I use electronic cigarette flavour concentrates?
Can you use more than one at the same time?
Here are all the answers to your questions.
Why flavouring bases separately instead of ready-made liquids?
There are numerous ready-made liquids for electronic cigarettes on the market, some of which are cheap and others of excellent quality. However, it is difficult for them to satisfy the most demanding vapers looking for a specific type of vaping experience.
It is where e-cigarette flavourings come in.
Why do you choose to buy a base liquid and an electronic cigarette flavour concentrate separately?
The answer lies mainly in the intensity of the taste and aroma you want to achieve.
While ready-made liquids contain a predetermined percentage of vape flavourings, by purchasing bases and flavourings separately, you can choose to what extent you want to add them so that they smell more subtle or more intense.
So let’s see how to use them.

How to dilute an electronic cigarette flavouring concentrate?
If you want to create your vape liquid from the base and the flavourings for electronic cigarettes, you must use minimal doses of the product.
Only then will you be able to work out exactly how many millilitres of flavouring to add to the base to make the perfect blend for you, and you can proceed in the same way the next time.
Let’s see what is needed to mix the ingredients of your vape liquid in the best way:
- e-liquid base (or separate propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine);
- e-cigarette flavourings
- liquid nicotine (optional);
- gloves (to protect your hands in case of contact with nicotine);
- a graduated container;
- a graduated syringe with a large needle.
After you have all the ingredients at hand, we recommend that you read the instructions provided by the flavouring company, as you will undoubtedly find suggestions regarding the percentage of dilution of the product.
Let’s take a look at a few examples of how to dose flavourings:
- Do you want to create 30 ml of vape liquid with 12% aroma?
Then multiply 30 by 12 and then divide by 100 (30×12:100=3.6). The result is the amount of flavouring (in millilitres) added to the primary e-cigarette liquid.
- Do you want to use two different flavourings in the same base at the same time?
In this case, we recommend that you use two flavourings with the same dilution percentage so that, taking the amount of flavouring to be diluted in a given dose of the base liquid as a reference, you will only have to divide it in half, and you will not risk one taking precedence over the other.
With the material and calculations in hand, now you have to proceed, first filling the graduated container with the base liquid (ready-made or created by you by mixing GV and GP) and then sucking the right amount of aroma with a graduated syringe so that you can release it into the base in a super-precise way. Then, of course, if you use it, add the nicotine as well and then mix everything thoroughly so that you can use it straight away.
Best concentrated flavours: here are our suggestions
As we have seen, using vape flavourings is straightforward and allows you to personalise your vaping experience.

For the best vaping experience, the secret is to use flavourings that reproduce as closely as possible the taste and smell of the food or plant they refer to.
To explain it in simple words, a liquid to which lemon flavouring has been added should reproduce the authentic taste and scent of the fruit and not have a fake, chemical scent.
