Our Wimbledon Studio, Where The Magic Happens

Candle making, preparations, UK Candles 2023

Here at EVA Candles all of our luxury soy wax scented candles are hand-poured and finished at our boutique UK studio in Wimbledon, London. We take pride in individually crafting each candle with skill and care to ensure a premium product that meets our high standards.

A lot of our customers are interested in how our handmade luxury scented candles are created, so we thought we’d take some time in this blog post to tell you how the magic happens.


First Stage - Preparing The Glass Candle Container

The first step is preparing the candle container. Our beautiful containers are carefully selected and designed to complement your home with beauty, elegance and a uniquely refined style. Before anything else happens, the container is carefully cleaned and allowed to dry to ensure that there are no impurities. Next the right wick is selected. All of our wicks are cotton and paper to ensure a clean release of scent and a long and even burn. The wick is attached to the centre of the base of the container and then held precisely upright in the correct position using a special wick centring tool. The process is now ready for the next stage, which is pouring the candle.

Second Stage - Pouring The Candle

Before the pouring happens, the wax is gently warmed until it has all melted, and then cooled to the correct temperature for pouring. We use 100% soy wax, which is paraffin-free, sustainable and environmentally friendly. Our fragrance oils are mixed in by hand and, if the candle is coloured, then so is the dye. We’re very proud of our amazing range of astonishing fragrances, and they’re an important part of our design philosophy. Take a look at our Products page to see what we mean. With everything in place and ready to go, the candle is carefully and evenly poured by hand, and this is where all of the elements combine to create a perfect scented candle. The candle is now nearly ready to leave our Wimbledon studio and light up someone’s home, maybe yours.

Third Stage - Getting The Candle Ready For You

The next step is to allow the poured candle to gently cool, undisturbed, for twenty four hours. Then the wick is trimmed to the correct length and the candle is ready for a quality control check. Any excess wax is trimmed and cleaned and the melt pool is checked, ready for our stylish branding and elegant packaging. With all these steps complete, the candle now meets our high standards and is ready to delight you or someone in your life with flame, warmth and scent combined in a premium soy wax scented candle, handmade in the UK with skill, love and care.

We hope you enjoyed this overview of our production process. The benefit of a premium handmade candle is that you can be sure that every step and every detail of crafting the candle has been done with care, attention, love and skill. We believe that all of these elements shine through every time you light up your home with one of our beautiful candles.
