handmade scented candle tins, pots and church candles
Handmade in Cornwall, St Eval candles are unique with scents inspired by their Cornish roots and earthy designs that make a home complete. St Eval use traditional methods in creating their candles using the highest quality materials. Their drawn candles are made using a gradual process where the wick is drawn through a bath of molten wax, increasing the diameter of the candle layer by layer until the required size is achieved. The candle is then polished, cut into lengths and milled to expose the wick in preparation for lighting; a process demanding great skill and craftsmanship. Making candles in this way produces a unique and elegant marbling effect running through the candle and gives it a superior burning quality..
