Please Note: Some things have been removed from this Guide and small updates provided to alter locations and vendors to suite the UK and EU Market. However this guide was graciously documented on the ECF forum by Nikhil.


The following suppliers and their concentrates are considered "Safe for Vaping."

Bickford Flavors

These are often weak relative to the rest. They're said to be good, some moreso than others. A thread on safety information for all flavors available here. Bickford average strength needed: 20-40%


Capella

Capella[1] - Available in the UK at The Alchemist's Cupboard[2] and Leisure Liquids[3].

The flavor drops are more evenly calibrated in strength than other flavors and often innately sweet, and they specialize in more complex bakery/confectionary/drink flavors as opposed to the basic flavors. There haven't been a lot of specific reviews, but they don't seem to make anything that's just bad. Recommended for new mixers who don't want to get into combining multiple flavors right away. Their site also has a section for e-liquid use if you're wondering about safety.

  • Capella average strength needed: 10-20%
  • French Toast strength needed: 15-20%, 5/5


Cupcake World

Cupcake World[4] is a food flavouring manufacturer that does NOT specialize in vape related flavourings. However, through compiled user experiences and an email from the company, their flavours appear to be safe for vaping aside from the following:

  • Aniseed
  • Chilli
  • Christmas Cake
  • Coconut
  • Ginger
  • Lemon
  • Lime
  • Liquorice
  • Orange
  • Pineapple
  • Rose
  • Tutti Fruiti

the remaining 45 flavours are purely MPG based and fine for vapes.

The following information was provided by The Alchemist. These are MSDS, a total of 57.

SPECIFICATION of Cupcake World Intense Range of Flavourings

CCW Almond

CCW Aniseed - Not Safe For Vaping

Faerie's Finest

Faerie's Finest[5]

These flavors have been pretty popular partly because they are made from all natural flavors unlike most other brands. The strength and quality from flavor to flavor varies like LorAnn's but none are overly strong. A list of which ones are safe for vaping is here.

Faerie's Finest[5] average strength needed: 10-30%

  • Butterscotch: ?%, 4.5/5
  • Lemon-Lime: 10-20%, 5/5
  • Pumpkin: ?%, 1/5
  • Pie Spice: ?%, 4/5
  • Grape: 15-25%, 5/5
  • Rum Cream: ?%, 5/5
  • 2x Clear Vanilla: ?%, 5/5


FlavourArt

FlavourArt[6] - list of global resellers here.

Some of their flavors are very strong while others are average in strength, and have overall been reviewed as good quality. They taste more realistic and natural than other companies, many flavors have an Italian style to them, and unlike most companies they are not innately sweet. A full list of flavors and safety information here. Sometimes FlavourArt[6] seems to take a little extra time to fully diffuse through the final solution, probably because it's so concentrated.

FlavourArt[6] average strength needed: 2-15%

  • Cappuccino: 10-15%, 5/5
  • Cherry: 10-15%, 5/5
  • Chocolate: 5-10%, 5/5
  • Citrus Mix: 10-15%, 5/5
  • Cocoa: ~5%, 5/5
  • Coconut: 5-10%, 5/5
  • Concord Grape: 10-15%, 5/5
  • Cookie: 5-10%, 5/5 Recommended for combining with other flavors, not standalone.
  • Mango: ~10%, 5/5
  • Panettone: 5-10%, 4/5
  • Pear: 10-15%, 5/5
  • Peppermint: 5~%, ?/5
  • Pineapple: ~10%, 5/5
  • Strawberry: 10-15%, 5/5
  • Vienna Cream: 5-10%, 5/5

LorAnn

LorAnn's [7] (all sizes) Individual 1-drams LorAnn Oils Gourmet Flavoring .125oz. Multiple 1-drams eBay Store - chocolate2live4: Animals Bugs, Valentines Day, Easter Individual 1-oz. LorAnn Oils Gourmet Flavorings LorAnn's in Australia (mostly 1-dram)

WARNING: For newer DIYers, avoid buying those that are insoluble in water at first - they are very strong and more difficult to work with. While I have not included ratings for insoluble LorAnn's, many are good. Some people use the oils, but they usually mix them with alcohol first so they mix better with the final solution.

Use food coloring and additives at your discretion - they haven't been fully tested.



RED= Bad. Oil base, sugar or insoluble in water


Color Coding provided by Mistress of Design

The Perfumer's Apprentice

A relatively new DIY supplier, they are great for the price. They also sell other DIY materials and basic ingredients for mixers, notably Menthol Crystals and pre-diluted Menthol drops, diluted Sucralose sweetener (although I recommend using pure Sucralose), and Ethyl Maltol (links are to forum threads about how to use them, products are available on PA's site).

  • Honey strength needed: 5-10%, 5/5


Tasty Puff Flavors

These underdogs have received little attention but have gotten some consistently good reviews all around -here's the most extensive one. Their range of flavors isn't huge, but they seem to be worth it. Their flavors are safe for vaping, but some have artificial coloring.
