Natures Garden's Mauve Color Block Dyes work wonderfully in both candles and wax melts. This mauve candle dye will work very well in candle wax like 464 Soy Wax, Palm Wax, WOW Wax and any of our other waxes. One mauve color block will color about 15 pounds of candle wax in a deep shade. The photo shows our mauve color block in wax melts. When using color blocks, add a small amount of a mauve block directly to your candle wax, stirring until the mauve colorant is fully incorporated. Make sure your colorant is fully blended so that you do not end up with specks of dye in your finished handcrafted candles. In addition, do not use too much of the dye as it can inhibit your candle wick's burn. Each color block weighs approximately 1/2 oz. Our mauve dye blocks are for use in candle wax only and should not be used in body products.
