Candle dye blocks produce vibrant colors in both soy and paraffin waxes, and are an easy way to add a unique touch to your candles, melts, and tarts. Break them in half or cut into smaller pieces for lighter shades. You can also experiment with adding single dye blocks to different amounts of wax for a variety of custom shades. Our candle dye blocks are packaged in foil bags that prevent color from bleeding through to other surfaces.


  • 1 full block per 2 pounds (0.9 kg) of soy wax
  • 1 full block per 4 pounds (1.8 kg) of paraffin wax

Fragrance Oil Recommendations: Black Currant Absinthe, Frankincense and Myrrh, Leather

perfect for gray!

I had a private order for wedding wax melts, and the colors requested were teal and gray. Not sure if I got lucky, but managed to get the perfect shade of gray the first time! Great quality dye....

I used 1/2 of the block that came in the pack. I'm not sure if the double block counts as one or two. So using half of the double block, I colored one lb. of soy wax. The color came out a deep gray. Very rich looking color. Absolutely gorgeous. There was no frosting whatsoever with 464 wax. I can't wait to try the other colors!

Weird Smell

Used the whole block (the whole 2 units you get) to color approximately 3 lbs of wax but this gave my candle an awful burnt butter smell in soy. Did a blind test between an uncolored variant and a dyed variant using the same fragrance oil and the dyed one totally ruined the fragrance. I wouldn't say it was because of the fragrance because when I melted this dye on its own, the smell of burnt butter, was already there. CS should look into this...
