    I got both and some 0mg PG to fill up the box :rolleyes:. Will let you know when they arrive.

    Flavours = Queens at the moment. I'm looking to try a couple of the others soon. Any recommendations?

    Yes it is possible to get it at most/all Chemists they sell it in 500ml bottles but if asked they will sell smaller amounts. They will probably have to take down your details and they will ask what you are using it for. (Just be honest) It sells 500ml for about $35. Best to mix VG and PG together to get the best of both worlds maybe a bit of vodka to for the added throat hit.

    Thanks. Also did you get charged $13.85 for postage 6-10 days? (priority Mail)
    Mine got ordered as priority mail but usps screwed up their details and it says first class (which takes longer) I am worried but Levy assured me it will be still under priority mail.

    Going to try inspiredbychocolate go to their web site they are in Australia they do next day delivery not to sure on their potency but by word of mouth they are better than queens thumbs down. Let me know how you go.:)

    If you ordered Lorans flavs, the spreadsheet will give you the number of drops required, if you ordered the other brands, you get to experiment, just remember to start small..

    One suggestion was to use the condom for mixing, that way if its not right, you only waste a few drops.

    Levy provided me with a coupon code to change the total price of the shipping and use the USPS Priority Mail option. This bought it down from $30+ to $14 or so.

    If you order 125ml bottles (or smaller) - he can fit these into a standard USPS flat pack box that apparently is a lot cheaper.

    I know this is slightly of topic. Has anyone gotten any stomache cramps using VG. I just got my order from light in the box cut some down with 30% VG and straight away got really bad cramps

    Allergies can show up differently so if you think it is giving you cramps cease using it. If cramps go away and you are fine, if using vg is important to you, you can test a small amount and see if the cramps come back.

    Vg is a laxative which is why you may be experiencing the stomach cramps, but if your body doesn't like don't use.

    Yeah smoked some more of it today and right away got the cramps. Lasted about 25 min then it goes. Lucky i only mixed up a 10ml tester. Will have to stick to PG which is dissapointing becuase i wanted to make 50/50 mixes for the benefits of using both. Owell. At least i am still alive and well.:)

    That's a bugger! :( Especially when it's getting harder to find PG locally...

    Glad to hear you identified the issue and you're ok.

    Around then - maybe a little earlier. You're in Queensland right?

    I've found every order that has ended up at Brisbane customs takes 2-3 days longer than other states. Melbourne customs normally have stuff out the same day.

    Got it today. It was in the mail box thought i would have had to sign for it. Kinda worrying about it saying Massage oil considering if you did use it for that it would kill you. Now i only have to wait for the flavourings to come tomorow.

    New Directions sells it and if you are looking for large quantities they would be where I would go, however I haven't bought it from them and I can't testify as to wether it is BP grade. You will need to contact them and ask my assumption would be that it is as they sell essential oils etc to herbalists.

    Humectants - New Directions Australia

    I know they sell to herbalists I don't know if they sell to non herbalists you probable need to check that.
