Magical Candle Will Sort You Into A Hogwarts House

While we might not have received our invitation to join the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry when we turned eleven (we just keep telling ourselves it was lost in the mail), it turns out we can at least find out which house we were destined to be in!

A company called Muggle Library Candles that sells their products on the online platform Etsy, has created a candle that acts just like the sorting hat in the films and will sort you into either Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin.

The product, which is aptly named 'The Sorting Candle' is described as smelling like "excitement, fear and nervousness" or what muggles would describe as sandalwood, creamy vanilla and patchouli.

How do they work? Apparently the candle starts out white but once it has been lit, the wax magically starts to change colour into either red, blue, yellow or green.

So for a mere $18.63 you can take part in your own sorting ceremony! BYO great hall and feast though.

The only downside? You can't choose your house and we all know that not EVERYONE can be in Gryffindor. And we don't think you'll be able to convince the candle not to put you in slytherin like Harry did either...

But I mean it could be worse, at least now you'll know that you're definitely not a muggle and were meant to be at Hogwarts all along! No matter which house you're placed into.

Time to accio myself one of these bad boys (because we wouldn't want the post office losing this like they did our Hogwarts letter) to find out my magical destiny!
