Green Cart Farm is home to a herbery, perfumery and candle company – all made in Cornwall. Enter their workshop or gift shop and be assailed by delicious smells coming from their fragrances and ask for a slice of one of their hunks of homemade soaps in an array of bright colours.

Ben and Shonna Hands have been making hand poured candles in Cornwall for 15 years. The farm provides the plant waxes and essential oils which are then blended and boiled, coloured and moulded in their workshops. And always looking to expand they have since begun to expand with their apothecary – home to exotic perfumes, herbal remedies, natural cosmetics and hand made soaps created from natural, organic and exotic ingredients grown on the farm – and more recently into essential oils and Frankincense. n
