    Default Can you vape essential oils??

    Is there a way to vape 100% pure essential oils like peppermint, or lavender?

    maybe put a few drops into your eliquids to mix it up and vape?

    perhaps theres a special blend of essential oils that help strengthen the lungs and immune system?

    I ask this because I have about 100ml of pure 100% mint essential oils that i've been dripping into my mouth for digestion, or to freshen my breath, or to add the kick before my analog. I also mix it up with water and squirt it into the air as an air freshener and antibacterial agent.'

    would love some comments please

    I think they would be toxic to vape plus probably ruin your atomizer.

    Oils tend to burn up atty's. I hear that Drew over at NHaler has some ejuice that helps out lungs though. >> Clicky <<

    In case you don't want to DIY that is. Mileage varies

    Nope.



    It's closer to an alcohol. For dietary purposes it's treated as a carbohydrate.

    It is true oils will decrease the life of your atty, but if you use no more than a couple of drops to 10ml you will be fine. I use clove, pepermint and spermint at no more than 4 drops maximum to 10ml. The oils are quite strong and do not require alot. I have read other peoples account that put 15% or 20% oils in and it immediately killed their atty. At 4 drops to 10ml you are talking about a concentration of approx .01%. Oils are not for everyone, less is more IMO. I have not had any premature atty failures from using this low amount, or any health issues for that matter. I have been vaping for 6 months+ and like clove every now and then. I dedicate one atty primarily for the oil I am going to use as they tend to stick in the atty and dont want to leave. I would try a drop or two and see how the flavor is, start small and find the amount you like. There are many of us that vape oils and there are many that advocate against it. The choice of course is up to you.
    BTW I have started using cartomizers and at 1.59 a piece, they have become my atty of choice. I usually buy 25 at a time since they come in 5 packs for as low as 7.95 you cant beat them.
    Hope this helps

    I vape essential oils and have not had any problems. They mix well with alcohol, so always add a little vodka in mine. Vaping eucalyptus for cough.
