Love these and they work fine for what I use them on, how ever if you want Christmas green you need at least 3 for a pound of wax.

For a similar candle dye we recommend our Forest Green 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 used a full chip in 1/2pound of soy wax and ended up with a color MUCH better suited to cucumber melon than to the Victorian Christmas scent I was using. Unfortunately I had an order for a Christmas scented candle and no other green dye available so I have some minty colored Christmas candles... Wish I had known but I guess I should have checked first.
I used 2 dye chips in 12 oz of IGI 6006 and with most colors I get what's pictured but this one was quite a bit lighter. I definitely wouldn't purchase this particular shade if you're looking for a deep green. I used this with Oakmoss and Amber FO and I was shooting for a darker green but the light green will be okay. As previous comments have said I think this color would look fantastic in Cucumber Melon candles.
We've had success with this color in the past, but now it comes out looking great and then changes to a light brownish/peach color- is anyone else having this problem? We're trying to figure out if it's the dye or the temp of the wax or the room. There are so many variants... just wondering if anyone has come across the same thing and has any suggestions to keep them nice and green? If so, please let me know! roxie.lubanovic(AT)gmail.com
I wouldn't call it "Christmas" green but it's still a very nice color. I used half a chip for my Cucumber Melon and it came out wonderfully. A nice pastel green.
I too used this color for my Christmas Tree oil and found the same problem. But after re-reading the notes on the dye chips at the CandleScience website, I see it says to use 2 dye chips to obtain the deep color if using soy wax. I am going to try again.
I used 1 dye chip to 1 lb of wax. I wanted a dark, spruce green to match a Christmas Tree fragrance. The colour when the wax was liquid was a wonderful dark green, I thought it was going to be perfect. As the wax cooled and hardened, the colour got lighter and lighter. Nothing like a Christmas tree, more like a avocado green. I will try the darker green dye chips you stock and keep my fingers crossed. A real shame.
