Christie! (Street Articles Author)

Hello, I'm Christie. I'm a busy wife and a mother of 6 children. I've always had an interest in health and nutrition because it plays such a crucial role in my family's happiness from day to day. I'm sure you'd agree that when you or people you know are struggling with fatigue, stress, depression, sleep issues, anxiety, illness or disease it is more difficult to enjoy life to it's fullest. I love life and I want to enjoy every minute of it as healthy as I possibly can!

I'm always on the lookout for natural ways to improve my health. As a child my mom used herbs for a variety of every day problems. Now as an adult I've learned about essential oils and the powerful way they can promoting health and healing for our bodies. I am empassionated about this and want to share my knowledge with others so they can achieve greater health and happiness as well.

I love people! We are all so different from one another and yet I know beneath the outer layers we share similar concerns, fears, and even desires and needs. My goal as a writer is to inform and education people on ways that they can take control of their health and thus find greater peace and happiness in their loves. I hope to be able to share content that is both engaging and encouraging.

I look forward to your feedback. If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions please leave your feedback. I will make sure to get back with you.
