If you don’t already, you can most definitely add menthol to e-juice. In fact, it’s done all the time. Vape juices that contain menthol along with at least one other flavour are known as ice vape juice. The “ice” refers to the menthol. Now, if you’re thinking about adding menthol to your e-juice, there is a very easy way to go about it, which we’ve explained below.
How To Add Menthol To Your Vape Juice
Adding menthol to vape juice is very easy. All you have to do is purchase menthol flavouring intended for use in do-it-yourself e-liquid mixing or buy a good bottle of menthol e-liquid and simply add it to whatever e-liquid you’re trying to turn into an ice flavour. At Aus Vape, we prefer the latter method.
You can mix everything together in a bottle. You can also use a dosing syringe for exact measurements if you’re into that sort of thing. An even easier method is to simply take your main vape juice, let’s call it apple e-liquid, and fill your vape tank with it, being sure to leave a bit of room to add your menthol e-liquid. From there, you simply add a little menthol, shake it up to mix it in, and then vape it to see if it’s right. If there’s not enough menthol, just add some more until it tastes right to you.
How Much Menthol Do You Put In E-Juice?
The exact amount of menthol that you should add to your e-juice depends entirely on your own personal preference. Some vapers like a lot of menthol in their vape juice while others prefer just a hint. Finding out what’s right for you may take some testing on your part.
As an alternative, you can always buy ice vape juice flavours that have been premixed. There are many of them to choose from. For instance, there are iced flavours that contain berries, apples, bananas, and other fruit flavours. There are also ones that are mixed with tobacco, caramel, and so on. With many options already on the market, there’s no need to mix your own menthol e-juice unless you really want to.
What The Menthol Does
When added to e-juice, menthol increases the sensation of the vapour hitting the back of your throat. This means that you will feel each puff of vapour that much more than you would if you were vaping an e-liquid with no menthol in it.
Another thing that menthol does when it’s added to e-liquid is it infuses the vapour that’s created with a cold sensation, which is why menthol e-liquids are sometimes described as cool, icy, cold, freezing, frigid, and so on.
If you really want to feel your e-cig’s vapour in the back of your throat when you inhale it, adding a bit of menthol is a relatively simple solution. If you enjoy vaping e-liquids that are cold and refreshing, again, menthol is one way to achieve this.
To some vapers who use menthol vape juice, there’s also another attribute that’s worth noting and that’s the soothing effect that it can have. Menthol is used not just in e-liquids, but also in many other products, including cough drops. The reason for this is that it actually soothes the throat.
Also Great For Palate Cleansing
Menthol vape juices don’t just taste and smell minty fresh and cool, they also help cleanse your palate. This is particularly useful when trying to avoid olfactory fatigue from vaping the same e-liquid flavours too often. When you get olfactory fatigue from vaping the same flavour or flavours too often, it becomes harder to taste them. It’s as if they’ve lost some of their potency but the reality is that the juice is the same, what has changed is your ability to sense and taste its aroma and flavour. This phenomenon is known in the vaping community as vaper’s tongue and it’s something that a lot of vapers experience at one point or another.
Puffing a strong menthol e-juice between the other flavours you vape can help cleanse your palate and make the other flavours you vape that much more enjoyable.
