    How do I get these flavors into my juice without using oil?

    I'm not partial to menthol - I prefer the minty tastes. I've seen plenty sites selling Mint or spearmint etc.. how do they produce those without using the oils?
    I'd love to make my own mints, I just don't want to mess up my lungs or my atomizers.

    if you previously smoked analogs, I would not be all too concerned about how the mint-flavored juices are made. Most that I have tried are more a 'hint of mint' than a real rush of mint flavors. But, people have different tastes, so what I think is wek is very strong to others. The only e-juice company that has actually had their product properly tested is Totally Wicked. They sell a spearmint product. I have a bottle right now. It is ok, but not overly minty.

    I have the mint juice from thesmokelessshop (katy) and I really like it, very mild but fresh tasting... goes well with a cup of coffee or anything else really.

    I just bought some spearmint as well from one of the other suppliers, I'm hoping its a true spearmint, I know I'll love that.

    I would love to be able to mix it up myself - with 100ml of unflavoured heading my way!

    Maybe you could use some fresh mint leaves and leave them soaking in eliquid to extract the flavour? I don't know if it can be done like that.

    I might just try that Kate, perhaps chop em a little or crush the leaves to let the juices out.

    i made my own spearmint using lorann oil i got at wallyworld...

    it's like spearmint crack... and it spearmints up the entire house

    did mine somewhat cheaply... squeezed every drop out of all my 901 cartridges into a bottle.. added a little glycerine then added the spearmint oil.. just a few drops.. STRONG

    See, I myself have been wondering about maybe taking a drop or 2 of mint extract and adding it to some of my Marlboro 36 and seeing how it turns out. It's just alcohol and mint, so no real problems should occur I would think.

    ALSO, the grinding up of fresh mint, added to some e-juice, let sit for about a week, strain and use SHOULD work if I understand Alton Brown on the food network. LOL it's called infused oils, and think for e-juice it could work pretty well!

    I'm going to try the mint crushed up and soak it for a while.... when I get my juice!

    Werkit - have you check the lorann's site? I bought myself some "raspberry chocolate drops" for my coffee - I can NOT wait!

    it had a slight HINT of coconut...

    tasted more like the store bought bottle of pina colada mix than anything you'd get by having one made fresh

    another one would be it tasted like jelly belly jelly beans pina colada

    I have used Loranne's Creme de Minthe. Strong and satisfying. I might try some spearmint next time.

    I was about to order the Lorannes Peppermint, spearmint ect until i read the warnings about only using water soluble flavorings. Are these flavorings dangerous to vape or just hard on atty's ???
