I use this mainly for the Cinnamon Buns scent, but have also used it with pumpkin dye blocks to get a perfect pumpkin pie color. I use IGI 6006.
As of 12/28/2018:This product is discontinued and no longer available.
For a similar candle dye we recommend our Brown Dye Blocks. It is more concentrated, so you can use less of the dye block to achieve the same color as the dye chips.
Our dye chips are packed in foil bags that virtually eliminate color from bleeding through the bag and staining other surfaces.

The candle in the picture was made with 1 dye chip in a pound of IGI 4794 paraffin wax. For soy, parasoy, or other natural waxes you may need to use 2 or more chips to achieve a similar color.
Add dye chips to wax at 185 degrees or higher to ensure they'll dissolve completely.
I've made several pumpkin spice scented candles with the brown dye chips. They looks amazing for a while, but I put them in a storage cabinet (so they're in a dark space, under 70 degrees) and 3-4 weeks later as I'm starting to fill orders parts of the candle look bleached, the color has faded and it looks really weird and ugly! I am not sure what has happened but it seems to only be happening with the brown dye chips. I've had this happen in tin and glass containers.
I used 2 chips in IGI 6006 and it was the perfect milk and coffee brown to go with the hazelnut coffee fragrance!
After putting 1 chip in 1 lb of GB 464, it looks just like the picture here! Very nice, rich color!
1 chip to 1 lb of GB 464 is a true brown. To get a wonderful dark brown use 2 chips. Paired with Very Vanilla it is a bit hit.
