Harry Potter theme self care ideas!

I really love making these little themed edits. I've always wanted to try a Harry Potter themed or 'aesthetic' self care guide, so we can throw ourselves a Harry Potter themed pamper party at home aka light a million butterbeer candles yesss!

PS eagle eyed Harry Potter fans may notice the book doesn't actually count shhh! It is Mrs Beetons Shilling Cookery Book from the 1800 something but it seemed to fit the theme so well. I popped Bellatrix's dagger in there too!
Setting the scene
1. Amortentia love potion candle πŸ‘ˆπŸ» inspired by the most powerful love potion in the world, this is the perfect candle for self love, with strawberry, raspberry and vanilla to send you in to a state of dream. Also featuring puffy clouds of rose petals and glitter.

2. Wolfsbane potion candle πŸ‘ˆπŸ» scented like peach myrtle to relieve the symptoms of lycanthropy, finished off with clouds of himalayan salt, hibiscus flowers and gold glitter.

3. Pastel pink magical castle wall art print πŸ‘ˆπŸ» perfect for your little self care setup, this illustration is so pretty! It would look perfect framed above your bed, the perfect girly nod to the wizarding world and magical franchise.

4. Luna Lovegood inspired candle πŸ‘ˆπŸ» a sweet and authentic scent of rose, patchouli and fairy dust, with added dirigible plums!
Everything butterbeer
5. Butter brew candle πŸ‘ˆπŸ» with notes of vanilla ice cream, butterscotch and cinnamon, the most delicious smelling candle ever.

6. Buttered beer perfume πŸ‘ˆπŸ» This fragrance captures the taste of the buttery sweet concoction so now we can smell divine and crave butterbeer all day!

7. Butter brew lotion bar πŸ‘ˆπŸ» these are actual magic - pun! - as you can actually rub the scent of butterbeer on to your skin after your shower or bath and smell like vanilla ice cream and butterscotch all day.

8. Butterbeer body scrub πŸ‘ˆπŸ» I think this sounds amazing, I am totally torn between this one and the one linked below. It sounds like the yummiest bath product ever!

Everything butterbeer - yes more!
9. Butterbeer charm necklace πŸ‘ˆπŸ» this is so precious and there is even real liquid inside! It's possibly the cutest thing I have ever seen.

10. Butterbeer whipped sugar scrub πŸ‘ˆπŸ» just so we can bathe ourselves in the scent of butterbeer and imagine we are actually bathing in butterbeer... just me. This is a sugar scrub so will be extra exfoliating for incredibly smooth and soft skin, it looks and sounds so yummy!

11. Butterbeer inspired bookish tea πŸ‘ˆπŸ» this caramel butterbeer blend sounds incredible, perfect to sit down with for a bit of me time or make your morning cup of tea ritual that bit sweeter.

12. Buttered beer lip balm πŸ‘ˆπŸ» this is said to taste just like butterbeer, flavoured with butterscotch, caramel, toffee and vanilla essences. We can finally get a taste of the coveted beverage!

Candles of dreams
13. The Philosophers Stone candle πŸ‘ˆπŸ» harbours the scent of strawberries, lillies with added golden and ruby fairy dust.

14. The Magic Sorting Candle πŸ‘ˆπŸ» I think this is genius! Incredibly the top creamy glitter vanilla layer will burn away to reveal one of four colour scent combinations. Red is cocoa log fire and cinnamon swirl, yellow is lime, basil and mandarin, green is sea breeze and leather, blue is cucumber, cocoa leaf, jasmine and green tea. This posts from the UK but I have included another below for US readers!

15. The Sorting Hat candle πŸ‘ˆπŸ» I included two of these as I think it is such a cool concept, this one posts from the US! It's scented with rich butterscotch and will reveal your house colour when burned! It burns for 40-50 hours.

16. Hermione's time turner candle πŸ‘ˆπŸ» magically allows time to stand still with blood orange, grapefruit and golden pixie dust for good measure.

Magical bath items
17. Veritaserum truth serum potion, wildflowers bubble bath πŸ‘ˆπŸ» these are incredible and they also have every potion imaginable! I love how beautiful they are on the outside, as well as making incredibly bubbly Harry Potter scented baths.

18. Dragon egg scrubee body scrub πŸ‘ˆπŸ» with pumice powder, activated charcoal and sweet citrus oils, shaped like a dragon's egg.

19. Galaxy bubble bar πŸ‘ˆπŸ» the bubbliest bubbles in the universe, scented with meyer lemon, bergamot, orange blossoms and lavender, with a touch of glitter, these are sure to rival Lush!

20. Sorting hat bath bomb πŸ‘ˆπŸ» the most ingenius invention ever! 

Adorable quirky things
21. Just brew it pastel witchy pin πŸ‘ˆπŸ» this pin is so lovely! Pins can definitely count as self care items, right? Or I think at least, it's so therapeutic adorning your jacket/purse/entire house with them.

22. 'Just one more chapter' girly pastel bookish pin πŸ‘ˆπŸ» I'm swooning over this lovely pin, it's just the prettiest thing, flowers, books and pastels are everything.

23. Harry Potter tee πŸ‘ˆπŸ» I think this is such a cute design and the pink is so cute too, perfect attire for lounging in.

24. Harry Potter character washi tape πŸ‘ˆπŸ» this is so unique, I've never seen anything like these adorable washi tapes!
I hope this post has put you in a magical mood and made you want to read every book watch every single film. I'd love to find out your favourites below!

  1. So much fun! I love HP and THOSE CANDLES THO!

    1. Awww thanks so much! Sorry I am late to reply! :D ♡

  2. Literally everything about this post made me smile. I LOVE Harry Potter so much. I even have a shelf dedicated to all of my Harry Potter collectibles. (Yes, I am obviously super cool, ha!) The fact that there is a butter beer candle and it is not in my life is a travesty! These items are FABULOUS! Best. Post. Ever.

    1. Awww this is so kind, thank you so much! Sorry I am late to reply! :D ♡

  3. What an awesome post idea! I loved it, Elizabeth! However I have to admit that I am not a fan (at all) of Butterbeer... I tried it once at the Studios and it was so sickly sweet haha. I love stuff like the replicas though, and collect them - like the dagger!
    Hope you're doing okay these days and staying safe!

    1. Aw thank you so much Julia!! Haha I'm so happy you liked it - sorry I am late to reply and hope you are keeping safe too! :D ♡

  4. I didn't know that any of these things existed! I completely love it.

    1. Aww thank you so much!! That is so kind :D ♡

  5. This is such a good post! Thanks for sharing, dear. Want to follow each other? Let me know! xx


  6. I never imagined all of these items existed! It is so cool because you can get in the mood while binge watching the movies or reading the books.


  7. One of the greatest post I have ever read. You can see how much effort you put on writing it. Amazing :D
    Xoxo ❤

  8. Harry Potter reverberates with my heart such that no other story ever has. I watch the films and read the books again and again in light of the fact that I discover them ameliorating, yet in addition on the Top leather jackets grounds that there is a profound and significant knowledge in JK Rowling's mystical world. Dr. Red delightfully weaves together that which I love most about Harry Potter with that which I love most about brain research and treatment. She advises us that our feelings and our association with those feelings is our own type of enchantment.

  9. Gorgeous self-care ideas :D

  10. Great post dear ! Hope you are having a great week.
    I love your blog ♥
