About CatherineKen
Joined April 2017
What moved me to join Wealthy Affiliate? I just started an essential oils business, specializing in aroma and salt therapy products using plant based medicine, this summer. I set myself up at the local farmers market in May 'til September so now I have time to concentrate on building an online business. My most popular products to date convinced me that going online is my next step to reaching as many people as I can. I have had so many requests from tourists who want to buy my products that it is just a natural outcome of the joy I receive from others who find relief and joy in my products.

What was the motivation that created in me an overwhelming desire to learn about essential oils? Five years ago I suffered from a serious head injury. I began a deep reflection on what I needed to change in my life such as cleaning up my eating habits, stop smoking and start working out. I did those things that I knew would help me recover. I started to eat a clean diet and I started working out at the local gym and it was then that I found out through a workout associate about the power of essential oils. She gave me some to use. This was the beginning of my recovery from severe dizziness, nausea, memory loss and major depression.

As I started using essential oils in my daily life I found it helped me with day to day living. I suffered extreme nausea and dizziness for many months and even started having serious memory issues. I was very scared especially with the memory lapses. It wasn't until I started using essential oils for a few months that I started to gradually recover from dizziness and nausea and memory difficulties. And now my life is dominated by wanting to share the beauty of plant based medicine.

I have a large flower garden and last year I bought a small Steam distillation kit and now I distill flowers and herbs that I use in my products. So my journey into plants and their quintessential powers has brought me back to life. And all I want to do now is to teach people how to safely use essential oils in their lives by living a more natural life and by avoiding manmade chemicals as much as possible. I am currently planning to teach people how to use oils with confidence and I have already booked a place to hold a few classes through the winter. I do look forward to meeting with other members of the Wealthy Affiliate and learning all I can about how to build an online presence. All the best to each and all.

Good day to you Catherine, My name is Ken and I welcome you to WA and thank you for the follow. I'm following you back. I am sorry to hear of your accident but very happy you are progressing with your recovery. So I assume you make your own essential oils? If this is true, then you are a true entrepreneur!
I have read a few studies about essential oils and the effects of their therapies on the human body and must say it is something that can benefit most people. I would like to know more because I have a nutritional site that teaches people how to live healthier without medication from big Pharma.
I look forward to working with you and wish you much enjoyment and success in your online journey.
Ken

Absolutely loving this story Catherine, I'm so pleased you've been touched by the power of nature and are inspired to share it with others. I love essential oils, distilling your herbs and plants is fantastic! I'd love to hear about your products and even try them sometime. I am starting a blog about all things natural and non toxic living. What you're doing is right up my street. Following you and wishing you all the best in your venture.

Very interesting topic as I'm an avid spokesman for one of the serious indoor home purifier products around. Our choices for good health whether in our homes or in our bodies will reflect how long we stay healthy. It's wise to learn the natural techniques than to trust the pharmaceutical industry that really...only wants to ease our symptoms more than cure it. Why would they do that? $$$

Hi Allen, I definitely am happy to know that others sincerely want to take natural techniques seriously. I agree that we don't want to be controlled by Big Pharma and it is timely to invest in the future of natural living. Cheers.

Hola Catherine!

Thank you for adding me to your network and I have also added you to mine.

WOW, can I use your testimony to the value of using essential oils? I am a nutritionist promoting natural weight loss methods. The benefits of using essential oils are one of the methods we tell our visitors about.

What is your URL? Do you have a newsletter, yet?

All the best wishes for a speedy accomplishment of your hopes and dreams right here at WAU!

PS,
You are offically my new best friend!

Hi Keisi, I still am a greenhorn - newbie. I just finished up with the Farmers Market and now i am struggling with changing computers. A just bought a new iMac and I am not getting all my files over yet from my old iMac. Having said that I have been making special products which I plan to blog about but I don't even have a website set up yet. However, I promise to keep you posted because essential oils are such an important base to help teach others the power of plant based medicine. And yes you can use my testimonial with respect to E.Os. Thanks for following and lets stay in touch.

Thank you, Catherine. I, just like you, am working The Plan, which sometimes is working me. I will let you know when and where I will refer to your testimonial. I believe this will be a blessing for our readers.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

I have no problem with a niche. Although I just hit a button and didn't want to go online yet. Help?

It is no problem for your website to be online at this point and you should be publishing content as you create it.

All websites are under construction, a website is never done. It is bad practice to put a site under construction, rather you should be considering just publishing your content as you create it. Within a month or so it will really start to take shape and you will have a decent deal of content on your site.

You want Google to find your site as soon as possible, so avoid the idea of under construction. That is definitely not how you want to go about building out your site.

I suppose I am still having trouble understanding how to change that template that I chose. Is this possible?
Reply
Kyle Premium
You can change your theme at any time within your WP-admin:

Appearance => Themes

There are over 3,000 to choose from there and you will also be able to upload your own from there.

Simply do a search there (the search is pretty good) and you will be able to find a theme/look that you are seeking.

I have created some training on how to do this that you should check out:

That is a very interesting bio and my daughter uses essential oils on a pendant I gave her that she wears around her neck. She says they have a Calming effect on her and she is currently experimenting with different fragrances.
Welcome to WA and I look forward to getting to kow you.

Greetings and thanks for the follow, Catherine! It sounds as if you are off to an incredible start, Catherine since you already have people wanting what you have!

I suffer from intense headaches/migraines (I just had one earlier today); although I have a prescription that does a great job of alleviating the pain, it's an unsettling feeling not knowing what effect those chemicals are having on my body.

I eagerly look forward to hearing about your progress, Catherine!

Hello Catherine,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I just wrote my 100th training for WA. I have categorized them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes
