Golden Honey Liquid Dye for candle wax produces a color ranging from a golden honey to a burnished amber depending on usage. This dye is more thick and viscous than many of our other liquid dyes due to its strength. Your actual experience may vary depending on what type of wax you use and the amount of dye used. We encourage you to experiment.

In soy, deep, rich colors are challenging and standard dye amounts create a washed-out, pastel color. They require 2-3 times the dye that paraffin requires, sometimes more. 

  • A 1 oz bottle can color up to 100 lb of soy wax or 200 lb paraffin to a medium shade.
  • A 4 oz bottle can color up to 400 lbs of soy wax or 800 lbs to a medium shade.

Fragrance Oil Recommendations: Gingerbread, Cinnamon and Vanilla, Cinnamon Chai, Cinnamon Stick

Note: 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.

Thick, Sludgy, Inconsistent

Color is great and all the other dyes I bought are awesome, but this one, like other reviewers mentioned, is impossible to control and can easily ruin batches of candles.

Too thick

I've bought just about every color of dye candle science makes and they are awesome. This color was just too thick and sludgy. It's impossible to get a consistent color in different batches. Maybe I just got an old bottle because none of my other colors are like this.


Hard to work with

This is maybe the 6th or 7th liquid dye from candlescience that I have bough, and they all have been great, and the first time I used this color it was great too, no problems at all. The second time I used it however, was a nightmare. The color wound up coming out fine, but the liquid was no very thick and sludgy and the eyedropper wasn't working at all. And it became a real guessing game and had to stir way WAY more than usual to get it dissolve correctly. This is the only dye I have had this issue with.

Hard to work with but great color

Just like previous comments stated, this dye is difficult to work with. It is thick and sticky so it is difficult to get an exact drop. But, I've worked with it two or three times now and the color is lovely! Once you get use to it, you can get an exact drop, but it is hard at first. Four drops for me get a beautiful caramel color. I think it is worth the difficult use.


I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!

I used this on 464 soy wax and Cinnamon and vanilla scent, I got and amazing creamy golden color. Will definitely buy again.

For 15oz of 444 Soy Wax, four drops gave me just the color I wanted. Very easy to use and much better, for me, than blocks.

This was my first time using a liquid colorant for my candles. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting but I wasn't disappointed. The consistency of the product is strange and made it hard to do exact drops. I followed the directions and got a really nice caramel color. I am worried about being able to be consistent with the coloring of my candles since it's hard to measure the drops. But overall, I am not disappointed. I will most likely be buying again.



This dye is tricky to use because it is difficult to control. It is very viscous and does not stay in the dropper, so it just leaks out. Every time I use it is a guessing game, so the colors are never consistent.

Very disappointed with this product. Where to start. #1 - Dropper attached to the bottle with a piece of packing tape. #2 - When you go to remove the tape, the label is damaged, rendering the color unreadable and necessitating a new hand written label. #3 - So much residue of the packing tape on the dropper that it has to be degummed and cleaned before it's usable. #4 - Once the dropper put into the bottle and withdrawn to color wax, despite being shaken, when I pulled the dropper out, a big glob of came out of the dropper. I threw the whole bottle out. #5 - I bought a few colors from another supplier and did not have any issues. I will likely not purchase any more colors from CS.


Lovely Golden Tones

This dye gives really nice golden tones, from a lighter honey-gold to a rich golden brown depending on how much you use.

My first time using this liquid dye I was excited. My finished product was not as exciting. I used three drops of golden honey liquid dye for my "Hansel and Gretel's House" fragrance. I feel I either may have used too much or not enough. The color ended up more of a yellow brown than a nice deep brown I was looking for. In other words, the color I created using soy wax did not match the color on the picture shown for this liquid dye. It really isn't that bad, I will be using it again, just not what I had intended previously.

You may find that you need to use more drops in soy wax to achieve the same colors you would achieve in paraffin wax. Keep in mind that melted wax will always look darker than it will once it dries so a good tip is to take a few drops of your dyed wax out on a paper towel or paper plate so that it can quickly dry. Then you can see the dried color and adjust the dye as needed before you pour your candles. Feel free to contact us at if we can help with any other questions or concerns about candle dyes!

Looks good enough to eat.

Twelve drops in one pound of GB464 Soy produced a lovely caramel color. My candle looks like a jar of caramel sauce!
Protect your work surface and your hands from stains. Unlike dye blocks/chips, liquid tends to spill and even a tiny drop can get everywhere.



I have always used the dye chips. Very hard to control the intensity of color with them. And I have found different batches give different results. I purchased a couple of colors in this liquid dye to see how I liked it. The colors I purchased were not available in chips so that is why I chose the ones I did. New colors and new experience with a different media of coloring. I am in love with these liquid dyes! I have used this in paraffin, para soy, and soy and love the results I get. I can control the color so much easier. I will be going to all liquid dyes once I use up all of my chips. I also love the fact that they are measured with a dropper and not a bottle with the flip-top lid as I have seen from other distributors of liquid candle dyes. These are soooooooooooo easy to use and no mess at all! Thanks so much for a quality product! Definitely a repeat customer on this and all other colors as I need them.
