Why she’s Walker’s Legacy: After becoming mysteriously ill Dawn decided to turn to a more holistic way of living which ultimately began her process for reading the ingredient labels on the products she was using. She quickly became painfully aware of the just how much of what we consume is saturated with unhealthy and unnatural ingredients. Combining her love for aromatherapy and the need to take better care of herself inside and out she began creating her own bath and body products. Just for fun, she took a handful of her products to a local festival and Sold Out. The response was tremendous and she’s been in business ever since. Check her out at Pookapureandsimple.com
