I love my house to smell like a luxury hotel. To do this, I use an array of candles and diffusers. I am constantly optimising my selection and St Eval Candles is my latest find. Based on a working farm on the North Coast of Cornwall, they use their rural surroundings to inspire new collections and scents, from the Wild Gorse next to the stables to Sea Salt inspired by their stunning coastal views. The result is a range of delicious smelling candles and diffusers in really beautiful containers. Once you have chosen your favourite scent, their reed diffuser refills are extremely good value for such sophisticated scents.
St Eval Candle Company started 20 years ago with a traditionally handmade collection of Church Candles. Now a well-known name, they have since expanded our range with unique potted candles and stunning signature fragrances. What sets them apart is the personal touch that goes into every single candle they make. They use two methods to create their candles and these ensure each candle has a high quality long superior burn.
Along with their beautifully scented collections, they make sure that every aspect of their business is as sustainable as possible including their packaging which is made from recycled materials. In 2011 they installed the UK’s quietest Wind Turbine and to follow in 2013, their workshop roof was decked with PV Solar Panels. In 2015 a Bio Mass Boiler was installed and now they export energy and are nearing being Carbon Neutral.
It is also with great pride that in 2016 they won three awards. At the Cornwall Sustainability Awards they won Best Managed Medium Business and at the Cornwall Business Awards they won awards for Manufacturer of the Year and Sustainable Business of the Year.
Next up is a brand new shop right at the workshop, so if you are in the area be sure to go and visit and see how they make all of their lovely candles- as well as their gorgeous scenery!
