Our Story


Keeping traditions alive

Nestled 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.

Heritage and craftmanship

Today, we're celebrating over 25 years of perfecting the art and science of making candles. We use a combination of traditional, artisan methods so that each candle is made with a personal touch to ensure superior quality in style, fragrance and burn.

Please see Making Candles for a behind-the-scenes look at just how we roll.
