A Great British Brand | St Eval Cornish Candles
With so many requests from our customers to stock the beautifully fragranced St Eval candles, we knew after sniffing them on our annual visits to Cornwall and the surrounding areas that we couldn't miss out on stocking them. Nestled on their working farm in North Cornwall, the St Eval Candle Company was born from humble beginnings.
How was the St Eval Candle Company formed?Cotswold Life Magazine Best Family Start-Up BusinessNestled on our working farm in North Cornwall, St Eval Candle Company was born from humble beginnings, crafting candles by hand in the family farm house kitchen. Keen to keep traditional crafts alive and with our spirits rooted in all things natural, we sought inspiration from our beautiful surroundings in the Cornish countryside; creating pots, candles and fragrances inspired by nature.
What are your environmental credentials as a business?
We are always looking to upgrade and improve our packaging and recycle as much as possible, sourcing recycled packaging as much as possible including reusing old packaging, sourcing environmentally friendly paper for labels (FSC Certified) and reducing plastic use across the company and re-designing collections to minimise plastic and non-recyclable plastics.Most of our candle pots can be re-used. After enjoying the candle and letting it burn to the end, our customers have then creatively re-used the pots for potting herbs and plants and also for use as a desk tidy for pens etc. We love these creative recycling ideas - do send us any more you have or share on our social networks.
