These Etsy Candles Will Reveal Your Hogwarts House

Though its been a decade since our girl J.K. Rowling published the final Harry Potter book, our obsession with anything HP related hasn’t dimmed a bit. Lucky for us, we now have a new treat to keep our Harry Potter flame burning!

If you’re a true Harry Potter fan, then you’ve already sorted yourself into a Hogwarts house (I’m totally a Gryffindor btw). Now you can re-affirm your house, or allow yourself to be sorted the old-fashioned way with these sorting hat candles sold by Etsy seller CraftyWitchesDecor.

These all-natural soy wax candles burn color coded wax to reveal which sorting house buyers belong in:


-Griffyndor is represented by burgundy wax, symbolizing bravery, nerve, and chivalry.

-Ravenclaw is represented by blue wax, symbolizing intelligence, knowledge, and wit.

-Slytherin is presented by green wax, symbolizing ambition, cunningness, and resourcefulness.

-Hufflepuff is represented by yellow wax, symbolizing hard work, dedication, patience, and loyalty.





While these positive descriptions can appeal to anyone, individuals can choose their house if they don’t want to risk getting sorted into their despised house (*cough* Slytherin *cough).





Not only do these vibrant candles create an invigorating color effect, but they also smell amazing according to the seller!


Their description states:


This candle smells like you’re heading to Hogwarts in the Fall. Apples, pears, mandarin, peaches, raspberries and tree bark are woven into dried leaves with notes of cinnamon stick, cloves and vanilla pods. Strong, Intoxicating, Amazing!





The candles burn for an average of 40-55 hours and cost £12 which is roughly 15 US dollars (not including shipping fees). You can check them out more here
