Why do I need to "STEEP" my eJuice?
Here at The eJuice Factory, we custom blend your eJuice fresh the day you order them. This is the process of mixing flavors and bases to achieve the final eJuice product. Like fine wine, the flavors and bases need time to mix, oxidize, & rest to combine into a wonderful flavor. The resting (steeping) process allows oxidation to take place in the compounds that are in a state that will react to the introduction of oxygen and let the flavor molecules mix resulting in a “Full Flavor Achievement”. (Your Premium eJuice)

Here at The eJuice Factory, we have tested each flavor we sell. In the flavor description you’ll find that we post a recommended steeping time for that particular flavor. For the most part, each flavor is different.
How do I "STEEP" my eJuice?
Simple, Natural Time! We highly recommend letting “Nature Take Its Course”. In 3 easy steps you can achieve the steeping process naturally. Example: If a flavor is recommended to “steep” for 2 weeks, you would
1.) Place your freshly made eJuice in a cool dark area (like a closet or a dresser drawer) for the 2 weeks.
2.) Vigorously shake the bottle 1 – 2 times a day during the steeping process.
3.) Let fresh air into your bottle once a week for approximately 4hrs during the steeping process. This will allow fresh oxygen/air into the bottle assisting the oxidation process. To let air in the bottle, simply remove the cap and dripper tip off the bottle after 4hrs replace the caps. (repeat once a week during the steeping process) NOTE: Your eJuice steep time starts the day it was shipped (travel time during shipping in counted in your steep time.
