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.

True to Color

Candle Science liquid dyes are highly concentrated which means a little goes a lonnnnnng way. I used one drop in 16oz of 444 soy and achieved the lighter shade. Oh and try not to get it on your hands or anything else. It can be a bit messy to clean. If you use a damp cloth to wipe it off, it smears. Heaven help the one who spills a bottle on their countertops or floor.

As some have stated in other reviews, this stuff stinks out out of the bottle. But hey, who really smells dye expecting it to be fragrant? The bottom line is that a drop or 3 will be virtually undetectable in scented candles, unless you have the nose of a bomb sniffing K9. I say you get a pretty decent bang for your buck. I prefer this liquid to dye chips or blocks. Four stars because I haven’t tested the strength of the deeper tone and had issues getting the desired color when mixing.


I only use the liquid dies from candle science, perfect every time


Great product, the color is beautiful

I would give CandleScience liquid NO stars if that was an option. Extremely disappointed in the liquid dye (tried red, blue and yellow). VERY noxious smell, gave several people headaches. Smell only slightly improved in finished product.
Wasted 2 pounds wax, fragrance, glass candle jars - CandleScience states this is not defective. Smells like mothballs - very, very unpleasant smell.
