Our Origins

My name is Truly Benton. I am the proud owner of the Dough Bowl Candle Company located in Hoschton, GA,  a small town Northeast of Atlanta. I was born and raised in Ruston, Louisiana and am proud to be a Southern Belle. Along with candle making, I currently work as a Registered Nurse.


I have two beautiful children. My adult son, Nick, is autistic and continues to live at home and help out in the candle factory and is the shipping and supply manager.  Autistic individuals can have an extremely fine sense of smell and he is one of those! That's why he makes the best fragrance tester  in the South!

My daughter Abby and her husband Jordan, live in Virginia where they both went to college at Liberty University. Abby is a graphic designer and helped her momma design the logos you see on my products and website. Thanks Abs!  


Our role in the life of our customers is to provide the most highly fragrant, ultra-chic, modern rustic candles that take you back to simpler times! You don't need to have a barn, bake an apple pie or plant a yard full of Magnolias, Jasmine and Peaches to bring Southern into your home!  A smell can bring on a flood of memories, influence people's moods and even affect their work performance.  

I’ve always found candles therapeutic. There is something relaxing about a soft, flickering light. 

My journey in candle making began years ago after discovering one of my favorite brand candles sold refill candle wax for their adorable containers.  This inspired me to create my own line of scents and containers. 

I am proud to finally share my creations with my friends and family. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! 


Yours truly,
