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.

Fragrance Oil Recommendations: Amaretto Nog, Blueberry Cheesecake, Clean Cotton, Coconut, Lush Linen, Creme Brulee, Juniper Breeze, Sea Salt and Orchid

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.

Product Update: We are converting our glass liquid dye containers to plastic containers for easier shipping.

Works Great, Use Little

The people who are complaining are using way too much, to get a light creamy color it's one drop per pound, not one dropperful! I used 3 drops in 2 lbs of the harmony wax, and got a beautiful cream color. 3 drops per lb was a cappuccino color.

I wanted a creamy white

used less then the amount given on the directions - the color turned out a orangish brown? how can you achieve a creamy white? any suggestions>>>

Great color

I was looking for a cream color for my candles and got this one. I just tested it and love it! I'm using GoldenWax 464 soy wax, so I put one drop of dye into 5.4 ounces of wax (approximately 1/3 pound or triple the dye strength on the bottle) and the color is perfect.

Cannot get the lighter shade

I have made two batches of tarts using this dye, hoping to achieve an ivory color and I was unsuccessful both times. The first time I used the recommended amount on the bottle and they came out dark brown. The second time I used half the recommended amount (half of a dropper) and they still came out the same dark brown color. While I can appreciate a little goes a long way with this liquid dye, it makes it impossible to achieve the lighter of the two shades on the bottle.


makes a great ivory color

Love it!

I was looking for a sand color - the lighter shade in the picture matches exactly what I was looking for and my candles look awesome.

Very disappointed. I used the suggestions on the bottle and the shade was much darker, almost a tan. Not at all what I expected. I will not be able to use this when making a small batch of candles as I can not add less than 1 drop. Not as good as the other liquid dyes that candlescience offers.

Ivory dye

I was sorely disappointed. I was looking for white, ivory is white, or so I thought. I opened the bottle and thought, this isn't white. Then I though, maybe if I place a very small amount on a papertowel....well lets just say it wasn't what I was looking for. Sometimes I just want a pure white look for certain things. This wasn't it. Oh, I will use it, but not what I expected. I also wanted to be able to really lighten some of my colors.
