    What is the meaning of steeping?

    I got my e liquid bottle and it says steep for few days. Now I want to know what is steep and what does it mean? Any one can tell me about this.

    I think that steeping means that you should leave the e-liquid in the bottle for a few days so that it "prepares" to adapt for using in an e-cigarette.

    I am still not really aware of this steeping thing, although I have been vaping for quite a while now. Your explanations here somehow give me an idea what it is like but I still don`t feel very familiar with this.

    I am among those who don`t really have a high opinion about steeping the e-liquid and rarely let it do that ; ) Yes, in some aspects the quality improves but it just requires some time and I am too impatient to wait.

    Steeping, true meaning; You have plenty of e-Liquid on hand that you don't touch the new stuff. Personally I don't steep!

    Serious now; This is referred as an undefined time needed in allowing flavor molecules to bind with other ingredients. If your using alcohol in your mix, steep!

    The explanation of steeping is very very complicated, Taurus`s post totally proves that I rarely use alcohol in my e-juice mixes so it is obvious that I rarely steep as well

    Steeping means introducing air to eJuice. This process bonds with the ingredients thus making the flavor taste better or worse. Taste is subjective though

    Sure, this is what steeping is, what I really wonder is how efficient it is to steep and is it necessary to steep every time we mix e-juice?
