Candle Color Information

Natures Garden includes color suggestions for each of our fragrances under the description area of each fragrance.

Color Blocks

Candle coloring blocks. Available in Red, coral/peach, yellow, blue, green, purple, burgundy, brown, teal, cinnamon, and cranberry.  
One block is enough color to deeply dye 15 pounds of wax. 
Each block is between 1/2 ounce and 1 ounce each. 
For use in candles only. 
NEVER use these color blocks in cosmetic products!
Color blocks are dye dispersed in a wax medium. 
Color blocks do not produce as vibrant colors as our liquid candle dye or powdered candle dye.
Color blocks may produce specks of color on the bottom of your candles.  Make sure your color blocks are fully melted before pouring your candle wax.
Using too much color in your candles may clog your wick, create more smoking, may reduce the melt pool of your candle, and may inhibit scent throw.


Spectrum Liquid Candle Dyes 

Please note that these candle dyes are VERY CONCENTRATED!
If you are doing small batches or you desire to achieve pastel colors, you will need to dilute your spectrum dye with vegetable oil before adding to the wax. 
Never use any more than 10 drops of liquid candle dye per pound of wax or you may smell a slight chemical smell.
NEVER use liquid candle dye in cosmetic products!
Using too much color in your candles may clog your wick, create more smoking, may reduce the melt pool of your candle, and may inhibit scent throw.
Using liquid candle dye will allow you to create candles that have consistent coloring each time because you can simply count the number of drops you add to your wax.


Powdered Candle Dyes

The most concentrated form of Candle dye!

Use these dyes in very small amounts for rich coloring results.
For better dispersion, melt in stearic acid first before adding to your wax.
Colors can be easily mixed to create any color in the rainbow and more!
NEVER use powdered candle dyes in cosmetic products!
Using too much color in your candles may clog your wick, create more smoking, may reduce the melt pool of your candle, and may inhibit scent throw.

 
This product is added to candles to help prevent discoloration or fading from the SUN. The colors which have the tendency to discolor are: Blue, burgundy, violet (all any combination of these colors). Add 1/8 tsp UV light inhibitor per 1 lb. wax.
NEVER SET CANDLES IN DIRECT LIGHT....FADING WILL OCCUR!

Never use crayons to color candles.  Using crayons will clog your wick and can cause smoking.
