With nicotine bans in Australia potentially coming into effect on the 1st of January 2021, now is the perfect time to learn how to mix nicotine base. Nicotine base lasts several years if stored correctly and is great for stockpiling.
This guide applies to both nicotine salts and traditional freebase nicotine. A lot of pre-made nicotine salt e-juices are much stronger, this can be confusing, here is an explanation of the differences between the two. For this guide though, the two can be interchanged.

So, how does it work?
Do your calculations using our calculator, once happy, make note of the result from above in step ‘D’. Get your PPE (personal protective equipment) on properly and clear a working space. Have some paper towels nearby, make sure pets and children won’t be able to bump or touch the area whilst mixing. Have your syringes out of the packaging and prepared with the blunt-tipped needle.
Before we open the nicotine base, we need to prepare the e-liquid, this can take a couple of tries to get right. Firstly, remove the outer cap which is most likely childproof by pushing down and twisting anti-clockwise. The next step is where most people get caught, there is another cap often referred to as a ‘nib’. You can get a specific tool next time you order from our sister company in Australia here. In a pinch, you can use the outer lid like this but can often send the nib flying so be careful!
Nicotine base should come with a childproof lid, remove this and any security seal underneath so that the opening to the bottle is completely unrestricted. Keeping your nicotine base in the freezer until the moment you need will increase shelf life, the less time it is out of the freezer, the less oxidization will happen.
Carefully draw the nicotine base into the syringe and deposit it into your selected e-liquid. Place the nib back on the bottle followed by the outer lid. Shake and shake and shake, this is incredibly important to make sure that the nicotine is really well mixed. Before each time you fill the tank, give it a shake again.
Place nicotine back in storage. Dispose of used syringes and PPE (these are single-use items). Leave mixed e-liquid to sit for 24 hours before use.
