How can I handle and store Nicotine?
“Nicotine” is used in order not to confuse the reader with “Pure Nicotine”.
Nicotine is toxic, hazardous, poisonous, and it can kill you with the right dosage. Nicotine is hygroscopic as it is diluted in PG or VG and/or but not so common PG&VG.
Whenever handling Nicotine always wear thick heavy duty chemical resistant rubber gloves, eye protection, facemask, long sleeve clothing, full legged pants, and enclosed shoes. If you do get nicotine on any part of your body immediately wash with cold water for 15 mins and consult a poisons hotline. If you do spill nicotine on the table do not panic, take your time, use dry paper towels and clean up the area, then go over with wet paper towels. Make sure after cleaning you put the contaminated paper towels in a freezer bag with a tight knot and throw them in the garbage bin. Do not throw them in the kitchen bin as minors and pets may get access to it.
While some may say this is an overkill, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
It is best to store Nicotine in 2 plastic freezer bags with a tight knot in the fridge when not in use. Put a warning label inside the freezer bag to warn others. Do not leave the lid open as Nicotine will quickly deteriorate with oxygen, moisture and heat. Do not place the Nicotine in the fridge where minors can easily access it.
As stated before, it is recommended the user breaks the large bottle of Nicotine down into smaller bottles (or purchase smaller bottles to begin with, though the larger bottle are more cost effective), it makes handling it much easier and cleaner, do not store nicotine in the freezer as it will need time to de-frost before the user can use it. De-frosting takes longer as appose to having it in the fridge and during the de-frosting the nicotine can take on extra moisture in the air.
Please note: It is best to store Nicotine in glass bottles. Do not store in dropper bottles because the rubber/silicone on the dropper leeches air and will allow moisture in over time. It is best to find a bottle with a proper lid that has a silicone or foam seal to block any air from entering and lined internally with a silver seal inside. If the user does not have access to glass, thick heavy duty chemical resistant plastic will do the trick but will lower the life of the Nicotine as plastic will leech air in and out. Get a separate dispenser style lid with a thin nozzle to screw onto the bottle whenever the user requires the nicotine. Also a syringe can be used to extract the nicotine more efficiently. Though the user needs to safely dispose of the syringe after each use to avoid contamination.

Please note the following:
- If you require high percentage of PG for mouth to lung style vaping please select “other” & let us know in the comments section when checking out what % PG you require.
- We will not blend our E-Liquids anything over 75% VG as it reduces the flavour too much & in some circumstances the nicotine you use & final strength may actually force us to have a lower the % of VG you require.
- If the nicotine you are using is not listed in the drop down, simply select “other” & let us know in the comments section when checking out.
