As the weather cools down, more candles start to light up. There’s nothing quite like your favorite candle flickering on an evening when all you want to do is crawl under your favorite blanket and cozy up to your TV for the evening.
For those binge-watching Harry Potter movies any night that you get to do so, do we have the candle to lift your spirits as if Wingardium Leviosa was casted upon you. Say hello to The Sorting, a hand-poured soy candle created by Etsy user MLCCo, real name Ashley. Her hobby stemmed from her love for bookish candles, and after seeing others feel the same way, she opened her own Etsy shop.
With the strong universal passion for the Wizarding World that continues to thrive, it only makes sense that Ashley would cultivate a candle that fosters that love. And so, The Sorting candle was born: a product with wax that reveals what house you belong in.
The candle starts off white and, as it burns down, it shows the Hogwarts House color that you are destined to join (or that you predetermined for yourself/your fellow wizard.) The wax will reveal one of four colors that represent each house: red for Gryffindor (The Brave House), green for Slytherin (The Cunning House), yellow for Hufflepuff (The Loyal House), or blue for Ravenclaw (The Intelligent House).
There’s also the “surprise me” option, which allows you to order a candle with the color being unknown—a risky yet exciting move.
The scent is described as a “lemony scent mixed with a musky combination of sandalwood, creamy vanilla, and patchouli,” according to the Etsy description. A product that reflects our obsession for Harry Potter AND one that smell delicious? Count us in.
The 9-ounce candles sell for $21 each and is available for purchase right now. However, the page mentions that the candles are ready to ship within 3-4 weeks, so make sure to plan ahead for the holidays.
