About St. Eval

Nestled on our farm in wild Cornwall we create unique candles, home fragrances and body care products inspired by nature, with people and planet at our heart. 

Sustainably manufacturing for over 28 years, we blend both traditional and contemporary methods, perfecting the art and science of candle making with grounded beliefs in using business as a force for good in the world.

SUSTAINABILITY  

 St. Eval's Wind Turbine

Our company values are focused on keeping traditions alive and treading softly on the Earth, respecting, renewing, and recycling. By using recyclable packaging and reducing single-use plastics alongside our sustainable candle production we are proud to say that we are close to being carbon neutral. We love that we can produce our own energy via wind, solar and biomass power, and further care for the environment by protecting our local flora and fauna. 

In recognition of our sustainable ethos, we were honoured with a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development. As the first ever Queen’s Award for a candle manufacturer, this represents the highest accolade for business success and sustainability in our industry. As a company we are determined to set the standard for actions to preserve and nurture the natural world around us.

NATURE 

Cornish Coastline and Sea

Our products and fragrances draw inspiration from the beautiful coast and countryside surrounding us here in Cornwall. From the rolling Atlantic waves to the bright gorse bushes along the coastal paths and meadows of wildflowers bursting with colour. 

Our farm is a wonderful setting for thriving wildlife and our constant source of inspiration. We’ve curated our own wildflower haven onsite here in Cornwall to encourage biodiversity in our area, and we are a proud Corporate Partner of Cornwall Wildlife Trust. As a business, we are delighted to help raise much needed funds for the Trust, so that it can continue to protect Cornwall’s wildlife and wild places, now and for the future.

SENSORY 

Candle Drawing Machine

Inspired by nature we create long-lasting, evocative scents to transform our wellbeing. Our unique blend of wax and fragrance is crafted to ensure a consistent aroma, superior burn quality and beautiful appearance, perfect to lift the spirits and enrich our candle experience. 

Smell is a strong sense, powerfully acting on the limbic part our brain which controls emotions, memories, and stimulation. When we surround ourselves with beautiful scents from nature, we can evoke wonderful feelings of happiness and wellbeing.
