Did you miss out on your invitation to the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry this year? No worries, with our magic sorting candle, it’ll be just like the real thing! Just light the candle and wait, after approximately 2 hours, the wax will magically change colour to reveal which magical house you belong to! Not only that, it will also fragrance itself accordingly too! The colours are as follows:
Yellow – You are loyal, just and hard working. The candle will reveal itself as a fresh vanilla candle, even though you’re clearly sweet enough!
Blue – You are intelligent, witty and creative. You love books, so this candle will transform into a vintage bookshop scent.
Red – You are brave, chivalrous and courageous. This candle will produce a campfire marshmallow fragrance, to remind you of your favourite common room at school.
Green – You are ambitious, resourceful and cunning. You may be used to dwelling in the dungeons, so this candle will make you feel better with its lemongrass and oakmoss fragrance.
These candles will be allocated at random, but you can always send us a message if there is a particular house you feel strongly that you, or the lucky recipient of your candle, belong to.
All of our candles are made with 100% soy wax which is a sustainable, natural and petroleum free alternative to paraffin wax. This means that our candles are kinder to the environment, and are also safer and cleaner burning in your home. They will not release any dangerous toxins into the air or leave sooty residue on your walls. We also use cotton wicks which are soy coated before being added to our candles, and our wicks are all perfectly sized to allow for maximum scent throw and burn time. We create all of our fragrances from our own blends of fragrance oils – we are passionate about creating new and interesting scents for our customers! We make all of our candles in small batches in our kitchen, allowing us the highest levels of quality control over our products (and leaving our home smelling wonderful!)
The burn time on our candles is 36 – 40 hours. We recommend allowing the melted wax to reach the edges of the tin the first time you burn a candle. This will mean that during subsequent burns the melt pool will reach the outer edge of wax, ensuring that all of the wax is used during burning. This is how to avoid ‘tunnelling’ – the process where candles burn down the middle and leave lots of unused wax (common in paraffin candles due to their higher melting point)
Our candles are also suitable for vegans – we are proud to announce that we were voted the UK’s Best Vegan Candles of 2019 at the Vegfest UK vegan consumer awards!
