First off, these dyes are amazing! I use Paraffin Wax so a little goes a long way! Literally only a couple drops for a deep color! I will say that the black dye does stick very bad BUT in my finished product all you can smell is the wonderful fragrance! I only purchase from Candle Science and can’t wait to see what other Fragrance Oils they come up with! The more, the better! Too bad I can’t add a picture of my lovely candles!

Usage: 1oz colors 100 lbs soy or 200 lbs paraffin to a medium shade. 4oz colors 400 lbs soy or 800 lbs paraffin to a medium shade.
Deep, rich colors are difficult in soy. They require 2-3 times the dye that paraffin requires, sometimes more. Note that standard dye amounts create a washed-out, pastel color in soy. We suggest making a test swatch to figure out the dye amount you will need to get the color you'd like.
Due to the extreme concentration of our liquid dyes there is a noticeable odor that will not be detectable at normal usages in finished candles.

The only company I buy my liquid dyes from. Some don't realize that in soy type of wax you will need to add more to get a true color. In paraffin you use less. These are great true color dyes.
The only complaint I could have about these liquid dyes is that they can become quite messy, but that's just the nature of the product, nothing to do with Candlescience. All of the colors I've tried are wonderful! Some colors go a lot further than others, but this blue one is incredibly potent. It's nice, also, because any of the colors can be mixed with black or brown for shade variations. Very flexible!
I used this in Soy 464 GB and got a lovely denim blue shade using 6 drops per pound.
I've used these liquid dyes for many, many years, the only ones I will buy. Perfect in parasoy and paraffin applications. Use way less in paraffin with perfect results.
I love this blue dye! I don't think the smell is that bad at all, unless you hold it up to your nose and smell it right out of the jar, and you can't smell it AT ALL in the finished product. This is a wonderfully vibrant blue, when used in soy wax, and I like how easily I can blend it with other colors. It combines nicely with brown dye for a richer, navy blue, and I can darken it up easily with a few drops of black. No complaints here!
I would give CandleScience liquid NO stars if that was an option. Extremely disappointed in the liquid dye (tried red, blue and yellow). VERY noxious smell, gave several people headaches. Smell only slightly improved in finished product.
Wasted 2 pounds wax, fragrance, glass candle jars - CandleScience states this is not defective. Smells like mothballs - very, very unpleasant smell.
I LOVE this color and goes well with my scents; Blueberry Cheesecake, etc. I like the color for my
events I do and my candle themes. Very nice!
