Natures Garden's Ivory Color Block Dye is for use in both candles and wax melts using any of our candle waxes. This ivory candle dye performs great in all of our candle waxes. One of the ivory color blocks allows you to color approximately 15 pounds of candle wax. The photo shown displays the color block used in wax melts. To use your color block simply place a small amount of a block into the melted wax and mix it in completely. If it is not fully mixed into the candle wax, you can have specks of dye in your finished candle. Also, using too much of the dye can inhibit your candle's burn. Each color block weighs approximately 1/2 oz. The ivory color blocks are for use in candle wax only and should not be used in body products.
