So, I am going to go and get some lorann flavors this weekend, but I wanted to try something in the meantime. I noticed my vanilla extract in my kitchen smells really good. I also noticed it has water, PG and a few other ingredients. I was wondering if anyone has tried vanilla extract from their kitchen, does it work, (if so, is it any good) and can it harm the atty? I wwanted to add it to my flavorless liquid I have now...
kalojado--you have to add somemore PG or VG with it, but yes it works. As a matter of fact it is now the base used in all Johnson Creek juice as they got rid of the Tobacco Absolute and the Tobacoo essence and replaced it with vanilla extract. The high alcohol content of the real extract gives for a very dry hit though. .Many report good results with the immitation over the real vanilla extract

The Pure Glycerin lists only Glycerin 99.5% Anhydrous.
This is a really cheap and tasty 0 nic juice and I'd love to know it's safe. Anybody good with chemistry would be great to weigh in!!
I also bought some McCormicks Imitation Banana Extract which is awesome! It's ingredient list is water, alcohol,natural & artificial flavors and FD&C yellow 5. Any issues with this one?

Kalojado, I use my vanilla extract, but I use Penzey's double strength. It works pretty well, but I always end up mixing vanilla with something else anyway (vanilla mint, vanilla rose, vanilla coffee...) so the vanilla base (I think it's 12 mg/ml strength) mainly lends sweetness and a round flavor, the way vanilla should.
Hm. Vanilla and cinnamon... that would be a snickerdoodle. Hm...
I use Wilton clear vanilla extract and glycerin daily - tastes fantastic
I just got some jaboma glycerin (I suppose it's vg cause it has plants on it) and some alcohol/based vanilla for like 3$ at cvs and it's workin, could use more vanilla I thing but it's vapin and I thing it tastes bette than the PG
