This version of Orange Liquid Dye is now 25% off the listed price. The discount will be reflected in your shopping cart.

Orange Liquid Dye for candle wax produces a color ranging from light to dark orange depending on usage. 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: Peppercorn Pomander, Mimosa and Mandarin, Peach Nectar, Blood Orange, Orange Blossom

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.

Folks who say this isn’t orange…

…need to visit their nearest optometrist. This is true and super concentrated. Good product…

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.

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!!

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.
