This Color-Changing ‘Harry Potter’ Candle Will Reveal Your Hogwarts House

It's the next best thing to a Sorting Hat!

We mere muggles may never have a true Hogwarts experience, but that certainly doesn’t mean we have to miss out on all of the fun. This color-changing candle will reveal which Hogwarts House you’re in, so you can go through the same anticipation of Harry, Ron, Hermione and the other wizards in “Harry Potter.”

Yes, that’s right! Thanks to Etsy, you’ll finally know what it feels like to await while the Sorting Hat decides your fate. Well, sort of.

The candle’s wax starts out as a white color, but as it burns, it reveals one of four different colors: red, yellow, green or blue—with each color belonging to either Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff of Gryffindor.

As you burn the sorting hat candle and wait to see where it decides to place you, you’ll also be able to enjoy the candle’s scent which is described as “lemony ” on the Etsy listing and has hints of vanilla, sandalwood and patchouli.

Whether you’re buying these candles as a gift or just for yourself, they couldn’t be more fitting for this time of the year, when the warmth of a flame is greatly appreciated! A single candle will cost you $14 through Etsy.

And that’s not all this Muggle Library Candle page has to offer, either. You can also find other candles inspired by some of your favorite books and movies.

For instance, there’s the Hobbit Hole candle inspired by “The Hobbit” as well as The Last Petal candle inspired by “Beauty and the Beast.” So, you’ll have the chance to cross everyone off of your list this season when you shop from this Etsy store!

And if you just can’t get enough “Harry Potter” gear, the Internet will provide you with plenty of ways to get your fix. There’s everything from coffee mugs to slightly spooky-looking bathrobes with a “Harry Potter” theme.

So, get ready to add a wizardry feel to basically everything you own—but, before you shop around too much, you may want to see what house you belong to first. You’d hate to purchase Hufflepuff gear if you actually belong to Gryffindor, after all.
