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. Along with candle making, I currently work as a Registered Nurse. I was born and raised in Louisiana and am proud to be a Southern Belle.
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. When you first smell a new scent, you link it to an event, a person, a thing or even a moment.
I’ve always found candles therapeutic. There is something relaxing about a soft, flickering light. When my kids were younger I would try to save money and started out buying the refill candle wax from one of my favorite brand candles, refilling the adorable containers, making new candles.
After moving from the South to the wide open spaces of Peyton, Colorado a few years ago, my longing for home inspired me to create my own candles in the basement of my house. I deeply missed everything about the South. The smell of the rain, Pine trees, Jasmine, Honeysuckle, cut grass. There's no place like home and I am so happy to be back in the great state of Georgia!
I am proud to finally share my creations with my friends and family. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
