    Good Menthol Concentrate to Buy Locally

    Hello,

    One of my favourite juices or concentrates is Flavour West - Jungle Juice.

    I'm quite certain this has a dash of menthol in it somewhere and that's what I enjoy. So I'm wanting some menthol concentrate recommendations, and to make life easier the percentage you prefer adding for that brand.

    Shoot away with any menthol flavours you know work well and your favored percentage

    For reference, it will be going into an 8mg - 60/40 VG/PG DIY mix.

    And locally ordered is what I need.

    buy pure menthol crystals where you are, chemists should have it. a small 5g pot crushed up and added to a 50ml bottle and filled with pg gives you a 10% menthol concentrate voila just make sure you give it a good shake before use.
    that amount of 10% concentrate will last ages as its a strong puppy and usual percentage of that used in a mix is maybe 2-4%

    What buttercup said.^^^^^^^^^^. I did the same a few years ago, but its VERY strong. I occasionally use it along with spearmint to knock the rough edges of some of my questionable tobacco flavors.

    Awesome, that just made life very easy as there's a chemist next door.

    I'll try at 2-4% strength.

    Thanks!

    To help the menthol dissolve you can drop the bottle in hot water for a few minutes to warm it up. Menthol is very soluble in PG, you can easily go to 20% w/v for a double strength solution, which is what I've started doing. Yes it lasts for ages at one or two percent usage. Definitely one of the cheapest concentrates. Aussie Ecigs is probably the cheapest sources for crystals that I've found, but I haven't tried the chemist.

    Thanks Fab!

    What percentage menthol do you use in your personal juice?

    I'm going to get some soon.

    I reckon that after you've mixed your menthol concentrate (as mentioned it will be strong) start out with a few drops in your juice mix, start very low and you will get an idea then of how much to add in later mixes.

    Whatever you do, don't rub your eyes when your playing with it

    For a 10% solution, 2 percent is about where I'm at usually.

    if i were you i would mix at 1% in a tiny batch to find if its strong enough. no point in blowing a big amount of your mix and spoil it with too much menthol. its bloody strong so just be carfeul
