Judith Atkinson is an ex-head teacher, business owner, wife, and mother, and now has the time to be an essential oils junkie!
I exist to change the way people think about their health through oils, diet, exercise and spiritual development. Especially, I enjoy educating people about Essential Oils and natural products. My mission is to show that you can get results without the use of potent pharmaceutical drugs. The peace of mind that comes from using natural products is also huge.
Health, Healing, and Happiness to as many people as possible.
Dee Tavener Craig
Dee writes her articles with a “Tongue in Cheek” approach, enabling her to cover many areas concerning politics without upsetting readers. Dee achieves this in a most intriguing way when explaining certain politics. People reading Dees “Political Patter” have mentioned how enjoyable the monthly articles are. Politics is sometimes a difficult subject to write on but Dee passes through those barriers and keeps the articles out of the ordinary. Well Done.
