    vaping cobra rocks for concentrates and raw ingredients.

    write charlie an email and he will help you if he can.

    The postage is worth the experience and time he'll give you.

    I'd recommend getting one of the concentrates first before stepping up with raw ingredients, but if you're going to jump feet first, youtube, google, and proprietor know how is your friend

    I think he does menthol in solution too.. 10% I think?
    I haven't played with the crystals yet.
    I would not use the flavourings you can get in the supermarket - they're simply not concentrated enough, and can contain a lot of colouring which you really don't need.
    However, you can fool around with essential oils.. only a single drop at a time though. You seriously need to invest in a dripping attie to experiment with these sorts of things.
    I figure if we can heat them in oil burners, and inhale the vapour safely, then it's quite likely reasonably safe to vape as well, especially since a tiny amount goes a very long way.

    Except many of these "essential oils" are made using carrier oils like grapeseed oil or almond oil, which really isn't good to be adding to vaping devices. Make sure if you are going to try essential oils they are 100% pure distilled or pressed & don't contain carrier oils.

    Do not use the Supermarket stuff ( been there, tried that, it will clog whatever your using ) contact Vaping Cobra via phone Electronic Cigarettes Australia E-Liquid Vaping Cobra on the main page for advice, I source my Menthol Crystals from Korea via E-Bay and Dilute them down using Vodka, but if you are new to mixing try using pre-made stuff eg: Brain Freeze | Electronic Cigarettes - VapingMadElectronic Cigarettes VapingMad as some one above posted. If you go to e-bay you can pick up Menthol Crystals 60G 2oz 100 Pure High Purity Safe Package Sealed Free Ship | eBay.

    You can also get menthol crystals from compounding pharmacies. I paid around $5 for a 200ml size container when I was desperate one day though running out of juice.

    Actually while we are on the subject, and before someone else asks anyway, or even sits reading and pondering without necessarily posting a question on here, why do the menthol crystals I purchased actually resemble crystals. and the menthol crystals picture on the Vaping Cobra site look like powder?

    Menthol crystals can be had from any chemist but you'll be shocked at the price.
    Nor does anyone need 25g worth.

    I suggest buying the 10% diluted stuff. You use 1 drop per 15ml of Ejuice As for the crystals iI think you use one tiny shard to 10ml PG
    It's crazy potent stuff.
