TIPS
Average Vapers puff 3ml - 5ml of Juice daily (approx 30ml a week) - exact measurements depends on your usage.
If new to Vaping and experiencing coughs, try adjust VG-PG ratio or change to Products with MTL capability.
Many Vapers enjoy vaping Flavourless without flavours as the taste is sweet like candy/icing sugar.
'Vaper's Tongue' is when flavours taste weaker than usual (even you increased the concentrate).  Juice and Vapour recommend to switch to Flavourless for a short break (a week or two) then, resume using flavours again as the taste should resume normal again.

TIPS
Concentrates always to be used in tiny portion and with Flavourless (never to be consumed/used by itself).
Always steep  - leave fresh mixed Juice at least overnight or couple of days for a fuller and mature flavour.
Recommend to start with approx 10% - 15%  (e.g. 5ml of flavour concentrate in a 30ml bottle) and steep. Increase the concentrate percentage if you'd like stronger flavours.
Vegetable Glycerin's natural sweetness dominate the taste and may damper flavour strength (fuller in PG) - Increase the dose of flavour concentrate may helps.
Concentrates tend to stick its flavour traces on plastics and may be difficult to fade/remove.
If change flavours regularly, recommend to use Glass Accessories for mixing and storage.
Rinse/Clean bottles, droppers, measuring cups, syringes with hot water only.
Do not use any cleaning/detergent agents.
Sunlight and Heat can affect flavours, keep in cool and in shade (e.g. drawers, box or cupboard)
 
 
 

Nicotine
 
It is Illegal to sell any Products with Nicotine in Australia however, most states in Australia permit a limit of 3 months quantity for personal use.
Extra care with handling/storage of Nicotine at all times as Nicotine is classified as Poison (and is Addictive).
 
Recommendation
If you intend to import Nicotine,  Juice and Vapour recommends:
 
Import higher mg concentrates (as 'Base' and in PG) to last your supply longer. 
Nicotine and PG are 'throat hitters', use VG to dilute and cloud making.
Always dilute Nicotine in a very, very small amount.
 
Always use Mix Calculator
 
 
Always avoid contact with Nicotine as skin can absorb.
Always store in shade, cool and out of children's sight/reach.
Try wean out of Nicotine over time as Vaping is awesome without.
 
Common Signs of Nicotine Poison
Queasy / Vomit Feeling
Headache
Loss of Appetite
Dizzy
 
Recommendation
Cease using the current e-liquid / e-juice batch
Drink plenty water to drain out the toxic in your system.
Use new batch (less nicotine or none).
Seek medical advice from your physicans.
