    Menthol DIY

    I'm sorry if someone has asked this already.

    I couldn't find it easily.

    Can i ask how many grams of menthol to add to pg solution to get it to 20% menthol concentrate? (does 1gram of menthol crystals = 1ml?)

    should i add koolada as well?

    do i heat the pg and menthol crystals and simply let them dissolve....and is it ready to use or should i let the concentrate steep for a bit?

    thanks heaps.



    I don't need squat for ages, i just went shopping.

    I wish I could help. I never got it right, managed to burn my lips by making it too strong. There is a lot of YouTube videos but most that I found said just keep adding until its strong enough.

    Crisscross what happened when you made it too strong? couldn't you just dilute it some?

    how bad was the burn? just a feeling of bad sensation or serious damage?

    KK thanks heaps for that info i think it'll really help

    The burn wasn't that bad but it scared me off. It knocked out my tastebuds for a while. You could dilute it but I just didn't want the same experience so I played with koolada and then went with menthol doublers from VK. At least I knew what the strength was. Now i only mix straight menthol with spearmint for my secondary vape so I don't bother with the concentrated forms.

    Be careful it is powerful stuff.

    thanks heaps CC

    i hear you. i'm looking for some people that have managed a non burny menthol mix. No offense!!!

    i found this Brain Freeze | Electronic Cigarettes - VapingMadElectronic Cigarettes – VapingMad

    and Menthol Crystals - good to vape?

    so i'm going with a 20%menthol crystal in pg solution to make a menthol concentrate that i will add to mixes at 1drop/5ml, maybe more to taste.

    That's when i get the crystals. In the meantime i got some menthol concentrate and koolada from vaping cobra. that'll do me for a while...

    any ideas on how to mix menthol crystals in the concentration required will be greatly appreciated.

    I saved those pages you linked KK thanks heaps.

    for anyone else that ever wonders the density of

    propylene glycol is 1.04g/cm cubed
    menthol crystals is 0.89g/cm cubed

    now if only i was good at math i could work stuff out properly!!!

    i think this essentially means that 30ml of pg = 30 x 1.04g= 31.2g

    now if only i could turn this into an equation that'll give me a 50ml bottle of pg with 20% menthol crystals. I know that grams = ml's when density = 1, however both my ingredients = just over one, just under one........mmm...i need someone smarter than me for this one.

    so what i *THINK* is that 10ml is 20% of 50...which means to get 10ml or menthol crystals i need to divide 10 by 0.89 giving me 11.236.

    if i minus this from my 50ml i get 38.764 which i times by 1.04 but only to get me the grams...i dun need the grams of that though cos it's ALREADY in solution...so maybe i just throw

    11.236grams of menthol crystals in 39ml of pg? and hope for the best?

    I guess you will have to keep trying till you don't get it right.

    That was the process I went through and in the end put crushed crystals to what looked about 1/5 th volume in a bottle and then filled the bottle with pg. the crystals dissolve and that's what I then used at 5-10% For a straight menthol. When I added to existing flavours I would add drop by drop and then taste.
