The apothecary’s vision is simple and clear. Produce high quality, delicious e-liquids at an affordable price, while giving back to the industry that has given people close to me their lives back. Despite popular opinion among those who don’t wish to educate themselves, I believe that vaping saves lives. Specifically, lives of people I love. When people I know and love came to me and were tired of paying large amounts for small bottles of house juice that didn’t even taste good, I decided to learn how to do things to help them. This led me to where I am now, and after hundreds of iterations of recipes and struggle with flavor profiles, I’m proud to present my favorite compounds to you as the Apothecary Elixirs line. Every flavor in the Medica line has been an ADV for me at some point.Business claimed on 2016-06-27, updated 2016-08-17.

Elixir 08 (Medica Collection) by Apothecary Elixir Co.
The final flavor to come to the Medica collection, and one of our absolute favorites. Creamy, rich peanut butter meets a splash of toasted coconut, all held together by marshmallows made of Almond milk. Some say this reminds them of a childhood candy that many of us loved, others liken this to a sweet dessert snack. Either way, this is a unique, must-try flavor!
Elixir M (Compound Collection) by Apothecary Elixir Co.
Our attempt to redefine cold. Our friend Matt requested this one. Still getting his taste buds back after 30+ years of smoking, everything on the market he tried had no taste for him and he loves mint, so he requested something SUPER cold and minty. This was our prescription for him. An overload of ice, spearmint, and menthol will hit your palate as you take this one in. Just a heads up, this one is COLD.

I'm typically not a menthol/mint vaper, but Elixir M may have just become my go to nasal decongestant juice. Every time the seasons change, my allergies cause my sinus to practically blow up. It's usually the worst, but a drag of this will clear up your sinuses right quick. It's cold, refreshing, and tastes very good. The primary flavor is definitely the spearmint that reminds me of Wrigley's Spearmint gum. But there's definitely more to it than just the spearmint in this, as there is a big menthol kick that tickles the back of the throat and leaves the tongue and roof of the mouth very chilled. My only complaint--and it's only a minor one--is that there is a ever-so-slight bitterness hanging out in the background that tastes a little off. The slight bitterness doesn't take too much from the juice--it's still very good.

I've been dying to try the Medica line from Apothecary Elixir Co. particularly the Elixir 04 and I have to say it is pretty damn good. It's a real unique juice that has a lot of different flavor profiles happening all at once. It shouldn't work as well as it does, but I find that each flavor compliments the other.
The initial inhale is a flavorful toasted pecan with a nice creamy cheesecake that is lightly drizzled with caramel. It's not an overtly sweet inhale as the pecan balances out any sweet or richness from the cheesecake, but it is rather satisfying. The exhale is more of the pecan but I find this is where the caramel comes to shine with the flavor being sweeter than on the inhale. I have to say I am pretty impressed with Apothecary's crew in making a juice that has a lot going on and making it so subtle that it compliments each other.
I have to say it is a nice and balanced juice and it is a great wind down vape for the evening. It's a solid vape and I would easily pick this one up again.

As a strong mint/menthol kind of person I figured this was right up my alley. I've found I really like juices that almost overpower you first with how cold they are, then after a few pulls you can stand it and the flavors start to come out more. That's how I'd describe this one.
Super in your face cold for the first few pulls which turns into a really nice and sweet spearmint flavor along with the coldness. Likely the best spearmint vape I've had so far. Not so much of a harsh feeling throat hit. Just really cold. I also like how they have the concentrates on their site. This one is spearmint, menthol, extreme ice and koolada.
And for me at least, it tastes much better vaped than when you try some on your finger so don't let that freak you out if you don't enjoy an initial taste test. Smelling it reminds me of green mouthwash. The spearmint/wintergreen kinds. The taste isn't exactly like that, but I'd put it in the same ballpark which to me is not a bad thing since I love those.
I definitely recommend this one if you're into strong menthol and mint vapes. I could honestly see this being mixed with other juices to add some minty coolness as well.

This is some different juice right here, all of there juices seem to have a similar base. There flavors are complex so it takes a long time for them to steep, I recommend atleast three months. When I first tried the juice is was very smooth but bland. After many months of waiting and trying it out periodically the cheesecake flavor really started to come through and became quite a nice vape. It is definitely not overpowering or anything but has good cloud production and good flavor. Seemed to vape better at the lower recommended wattage settings for my coil. Thick premium juice.
So I really like this, but it's not my favorite to be honest. The flavor combo is really great, it's not too sweet and the coconut/almond really stands out-
Having said that, I vape at 100 watts and it leaves an extremely small burn at the back of my throat that tastes substantially of nuts. I'm pretty sure if you work at a lower temp and like sweet nuts, than say no more this is 100% for you
I picked up some of Apothecary's juices early on during the Labor Day sales a couple weeks ago. Despite increased sales volume my order was shipped quickly and packaged with care. Their customer service is amongst the best and the owner is active in the Reddit community. The juice is top notch and, as one other reviewer had mentioned, one of the nice things about their labeling is the flavors are described on the bottles label so there's no having to go back and look up what the flavor profile is supposed to be. IMO, more companies should be doing that. It's something so little and easy to do, but it's nice to have. Anyway, Apothecary is a fantastic company and it's very likely that I'll be ordering from them again.
Apothecary elixer co is a company that everyone needs to try, with a wide variety of flavors to choose from you're sure to find your next favorite flavor.
While AECo's juice has stolen my tongue and my mods, Afflaq himself has stolen my heart. Afflaq is a great guy, helpful on reddit and on the ECR discord, weather you need mod advice or a suggestion on juice he will help you out even if it's not directing you to his own.
You can buy confidently from AECo, knowing that your not only getting a great juice but supporting a great guy and member of the community.
I have had my eye on this company ever since they announced their opening on the ecr reddit, but just recently placed my first order. What a great new company! I ordered 3, 4, 8 and G, and although these may seem like common flavor combinations, they are mixed in such a way that make their versions quite unique. Transaction was very smooth and simple, shipping was lightning fast ( 2 business days even with a sale going on), order was boxed and nicely packaged, one of the bottles was doubled (unnecessary, but always appreciated), and finally price point is reasonable, cheap even, if you can catch one of their sales. Definitely worth trying out.
This is my first experience with Apothecary Elixir Co. I ordered the Dotmod RTA bundle and even though I lived in Sweden Ryan was kind enough to set it all up for me. Shipping went ahead as promised and I received my package without any hazzle, except for the Swedish Customs holding the package 2 extra days.
I can only recommend this store, Ryan sure did give the best customer support and service I have had in a long time. He even emailed me when he got a notification from USPS to check if the package had really arrived. I will most certainly come back and shop here.
I have had a really great experience with Apothecary Elixir Co. They are a fairly new company, but they're doing everything right. Website is nice and easy. Pricing is fair. Packaging is on point and the branding is pretty awesome. I haven't tried all of the flavors they offer yet, but the ones I have tried were clean and yummy. Ah and the owner is just a super nice guy and you can tell he cares about vaping.
No reason not to try them, so you should.
