    Default Can I use vanilla extract in ejuice?

    So let's say I have a couple bottles of commercial juice that I don't particularly like. Instead of throwing them out, can I add something like regular cooking flavorings to spice them up a bit? Or dou you really have to use ingredients specifically designed for vaping?

    Thanks.

    The flavors we use in vaping were actually designed for cooking, so yes...you can use cooking flavors. However, the vanilla extract we buy at the grocery store is usually not nearly as concentrated at the flavors we buy to use in our juices. Also, it may have quite a bit of alcohol in it....so it may really "water down" your juice. Certainly a little won't hurt anything....and may help make a bad juice better. Read the ingredients and you'll probably see a lot of alcohol. What you don't want to do is use a flavoring that has oil in it. For instance, pepperment oil is NOT to be used.

    It's much better to go to a site that sells flavorings, and pick up something that might help several of your juices. For example, if you add Bavarian Cream to any fruity juice, it may help it. E Cig : Best Ejuice | Joye eGo & eGo-T | Boge Leo | Cartomizers | E-Liquid | Electronic Cigarettes is a place I go to get many of my flavorings.
    Using various REOs with various RM2s and LOVIN' it!

    I always put a couple of drops in everything I make to 'smooth' it down a bit. It's wonderful. Got that idea from SupplyDaddy and it works great.

    I get my DIY flavors from Vaping Zone as well, best flavors around and you can make them exactly the way you want them, not once taste fits all

    Thanks. I'm a newb and have been buying stuff based on reviews and whatnot but some of the juices I've bought are downright nasty. Don't wanna trash them if maybe just sweetening them up a bit could make them palletable.

    Adding a creme flavoring will take a lot of the wang out of DIY experiments gone bad too.

    Also look for some sweeteners. I use cotton candy from flavor art.
    But there other sweeteners, and that can help. I have not tried things like smoothers yet.
    I also agree with Bavarian cream as a helper

    I would suggest getting a Vanilla flavor from the vape market instead of using regular cooking extract. A little Ethyl Maltol will also smooth out a flavor and add a little sweetness, as will caramel.

    I also like a variety of creams - Bavarian Creme, Sweet Cream, Fresh Cream. But start off cautiously, I've found most Creme flavors become pungent, or hot or peppery, however you want to describe it if you use more than just a little.

    Make your own Vanilla Extract without alcohol.

    I needed to correct this, sorry for the misprint in earlier post.
