As there is local shortage for simple candle supplies alone, not to mention dyes, I have a question for chemically savvy person. Is it OK to dissolve aniline based dyes for textile into mineral oil and use this mixture to color paraffin wax?

I haven't made candles, but I am going to guess that it might not work because textile dyes are usually water soluble.
