When making my first 2 candles I wanted to use natural dyes to make them.
I set up all my tools and everything I would need
I decided I wanted a tan color candle
I took 4 Earl Grey tea bags (standard size) and added them to my already melted wax. Steeped them for approximately 5 minutes in the hot wax, checked them then let them set for another 15/20 minutes, occasionally steeping them. The wax will pick up some of the scent from the tea bags but not much.
Yes, tea gives a very nice color to candles and a sweet (but very difficult to detect) scent. Just don't forget to add a little UV inhibitor because the color fades away much faster than with regular candle dye...
