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: Peppercorn Pomander, Mimosa and Mandarin, Peach Nectar, Blood Orange, Orange Blossom

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.

This is nowhere near orange. It make a nice light to medium brown, though! Do NOT buy if you want orange.


Orange Dye

There is basically nothing wrong with the orange dye. It depends what kind of wax you are mixing it with. For me and I used more orange dye with yellow dye to achieve the color I wanted with Palm Wax. You have to stir it, take a wooden spoon and wipe it on a papertowel to see the true color. If its not dark enough, add another whole dropper of orange, and test again. My candles came out beautiful and I received 14,000 likes on Facebook. You really do have to experiment before you make a big batch of candles with any dye.



If you are looking for a true orange, don’t waste your time with this. I used 12 drops to 2 pounds of wax expecting a darker orange and it turned a light brown instead. How could you advertise this as orange if it’s not actually orange? Not even a hint of orange for me and now I’m stuck trying to figure out what to do with candles that I needed for my business. This was the worst dye I’ve ever purchased from CS.


great dyes

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.


Used to make red

I haven't used this dye on its own, but I mixed it with the Red liquid dye to get a truer red, since that dye errs on the pink side.

Emerald Owl Candles

Wish this was a true orange...

As you can see through the pictures, this is really more of a brown-orange, and through my testing required a higher concentration (compared to other candlescience dyes) per lb of wax to get a darker color. I really wish they had a true, brighter orange color!!

WorldWicks Candles

Nice color when done and goes so well with my scents I use!


Good strong color

I use this with crystal and feather palm when making pillars and it is a wonderful earthy color. I use 5 drops per pound and get a deep orange color.
