A Warning To E-Juice Mixers
Return to Vaping Blog

Woman smoking  electronic cigaretteYou might be a vaper who enjoys mixing e-juice or trying some DIY recipes. When done with great precaution and knowledge, there isn’t too much of a risk. Although, if you are a parent, caregiver, or responsible for the health of anyone aside from your own, then you perhaps want to listen to the subsequent warning.


Recently a six-year old was poisoned with DIY e-juice that was put in a medicine bottle. The young child had to be rushed to the emergency room and luckily was able to receive treatment. Though the child is fine now, this situation is one that is clearly a scary reality. In addition, situations like these don’t contribute well to the vaping community. This situation is sure to summon pushback from leaders in the anti-vaping movement.


So not only should mixers be remarkably cautious for their loved ones, but also for the benefit of fellow vapers.


Here are a few methods to use in order to increase your mixing safety:


  • Keep liquids locked and away from others. Only you should have access to the liquid. Use child-resistant locks when possible.
  • Mark your bottles! If it encompasses nicotine, then add an extra “POISEN” label. And don’t reuse a bottle meant for other purposes.
  • Speak to children about vape liquid and how it can make them sick.
  • Do your research before mixing. Don’t just start without proper familiarity.


Be careful when you’re mixing e-liquid for the safety of you and others around you. The same or worse situation can occur even if you don’t have children around.


Talk to the experts at your local Pittsburgh vape shop if you are thinking about mixing or merely need further assistance.


Be safe if you’re going to mix for the sake of you, your loved ones, and the vaping community.
