The Sorting Hat - 4 oz Soy Candle


Have you ever wanted to be sorted into one of the illustrious houses of Hogwarts? With a little simple candle magic, you can make that wish come true! Each 4 oz tin comes with a layer of white wax hiding your true house beneath. Once you light the candle, the white melts away to reveal the color and scent of your chosen house. To keep it interesting, you can choose to be surprised, or pick your house in advance (great if you are buying a gift for a loyal house member). You are also given the option to switch up the scents, or keep the candle totally scent-free.

Scents to choose from:
Apple Strudel & Cinnamon
Fresh Pine & Balsam
Magnolia & Peony
Orange & Berry
Sea Salt & Orchid
Caramel & Buttered Pralines

Soy wax, lead-free cotton wick, dye, aluminum container, natural & synthetic fragrance oils.

4 fluid oz of wax, total weight is 4.5 oz. Tins are 2" tall and 2.6" in diameter. Each candle is carefully hand-poured in small batches, so color and appearance may vary slightly from photos. Due to the nature of soy wax, frosting is considered normal.

Soy Wax burns nice and clean and is eco-friendly! You'll be able to clean out the tin and either recycle or reuse it. Burn time is approximately 20+ hours. Do not burn for more than 4 hours at a time.

Absolutely. If you are interested in a candle, but aren't sure you'll love the scent, shoot me a message! I'm happy to send you a wax sample for your olfactory pleasure.

I haven't actually burned the candles yet since I'm waiting for my wedding and I'm having these on the tables. But I love everything about them so far! The smell is great and the shipping was fast too!

Update: I did give a star back because I finally received my candle. This is my second order with this shop, and while I didn’t have issues with my first, Ive had some with this order. I ordered a month ago and still haven’t received anything. I wrote to the shop two weeks ago, she said she was mailing a candle that night, never did. I reached out again and she refunded me my money which was good, but she said she was mailing a candle on her and never did. It’s just frustrating and I’m not expecting to get anything at this point.

Ordered almost a month ago, was surprised not to receive any updates on status. Due to my health it slipped my mind, however it was meant for a gift for a date that has come and gone. I sent an email the owner was immediate to respond, although she responded immediately offered to refund money, send candle & inc extra candle. I responded to thank her, however its been a week & no further emails rec Re:refund, shipment, etc.
