Color Blocks Dye


Natures Garden includes color suggestions for each of our fragrances in the description area of each fragrance. Note:  The picture that is shown above are wax tarts made using our 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.

Reviewer: A viewer from Warren, OH US 02/17/08

I have tried both color blocks and liquids, and since I started dealing with NG I decided to try both the blocks and the liquid. The liquids are really great with the exception of black, it is really weak even when mixed with used wax of many different colors. But alas I stray: back to the color blocks, they are really just about exactly as advertised, not quite as good as the liquid and they do tend to leave a rather large amount of specks that drift to the bottom but there are a few colors in the blocks that NG doesn't have in the liquids and instead of trying to mix liquids, it's just so much faster to use the blocks to get the wanted color and the minor specks really aren't that bad.

hot pink!

Reviewer: A viewer from Grosse Ile, MI US 02/03/09

Cranberry makes an excellent hot pink color when used in smaller amounts. Add a little blue and it makes a great purple. Since I only make small batches of candles for personal use I ended up chopping these up and keeping it in small containers so I can grab little bits at a time.

These are very nice... but some issues...

Reviewer: A viewer from Baltimore, MD US 07/10/06

I am a newbie and bought these dye blocks to use in test candles... I eventually want to try Liquid Dye... I found these Dyes VERY easy to work with... I use a mini cheese grater that I got from Bittercreek to shave off pieces... Before that tool arrived, I used a carving knife. It doesnt take much to get the color you want whether it is a light or dark color. The only color I did not get was the Cinnamon because I read a few reviews that had some issues with that color. However, I believe that I am having the same issue with 3 of my Block colors that people had with the Cinnamon. The Red, Yellow, and Coral/Peach blocks leave small dots of unmelted chips. These are very small and usually go to the bottom of a candle. I do everything I can and stir a lot to get them dissolved, but the still wont disappear. It is always an Orange/Red speckle... therefore.. I think it has something to do with the RED... the yellow block looks orange.. and you can see red speckles... It does not happen as much with the Peach/Coral... and I have figured out how to not let it happen with Yellow... I do not use any pieces that have a red speckle...
Other than that... these are very nice dye blocks... they work very good.. and color very nice... I get a lot of compliments on the colors of my candles!

Wonderful Products

Reviewer: A viewer from Cape Coral, FL US 07/29/08

I purchased a few different colors of the blocks. They all worked out great and I will definately buy them again. I was able to mix colors easily and in any shade. I highly recommend them.

I love these color blocks. They have such a deep, rich beautiful color. They melt down very nicely!

All colors great except for Cinnamon...

Reviewer: A viewer from AL 11/10/05

All the colors I have tried are true to color. The cinnamon color, however, leaves chuncks of color all throughout the candles. I have used the cinnamon several different times and each time I end up with the same problem... which is not pretty in a jar candle.

As another review said, the cranberry makes nice, vibrant shades of pink. Even though I did grate my color with a cheese grater, I did end up with a few small red specks in the larger candles that I poured first, but not a significant amount. I may just need to heat to a little higher temp. Will definitely buy again.

Color mix up?

Reviewer: A viewer from New York State 11/16/05

The color blocks worked great and gave a strong color to the wax. I am pleased with all the colors that I have used except the cinnamon. When I used cinnamon color in the candle wax it was purple in color. Is it spose to be Purple?

Not red, But Orange

Reviewer: A viewer from Texarkana, TX US 07/27/08

I have tried the Red block several times and the color always turns to Orange. A bright beatuiful Orange color, but what I needed was the red.

not very pleased

Reviewer: A viewer from Aliso Viejo, CA US 04/01/06

Even when I put a small amount in the wax I did not get a nice light color. These are very hard to work with. I think I will try the liquid dyes next and see how those do.
