Affiliate Links

As you read through content on, you may run across something called “affiliate links”.

So, what are affiliate links and why should I care?  

Affiliate links are links where if you decide to purchase that particular product or service, Kati Kleber will get a percentage of that sale.  Think of it kind of like a finder’s fee for linking the consumer to something they’re interested in.  This is at not additional cost to you and does not change the prices of any items.  The only items promoted and therefore containing affiliate links on this site have either been personally used by Kati Kleber or someone she knows and trusts.  It is a part of the FreshRN promoise that we will never promote anything that we do not wholeheartedly stand behind.

Kati is a Wellness Advocate with dōTERRA.  Therefore, if you decide to purchase any oils from Kati’s dōTERRA site, she will recieve a percentage of the sale. If you decide to sell oils with Kati, she will recieve a percentage of your sales.

DōTERRA Wellness Advoate Information and Dislcaimer

Kati uses essential oils in her daily personal life.  She intermittently shares how she uses them.  She does not and will not advocate utilizing oils to cure any disease or condition. While Kati is a registered nurse, she uses oils on herself – NOT her patients, and does not discuss this or instruct on this.

Kati will only discuss safe methods of using oils, meaning they are always diluted with a carrier (like unfractionated coconut oil) if used topically, or they are used aromatically with a diffuser and therefore very diluted.  Kati does not advocate for internal use of oils unless it is a very small amount (a few drops or less) in a recipe.  Essential oils are extremely concentrated and therefore should be utilized with caution.  Kati does her best to provide research when discussing oil usage, but it is up to the consumer to utilize them safely. Kati is not a certified aromatherapist.  Anything related to oils that she discussed is informational.

The FDA has not evaluated anything Kati has said.  DōTERRA products are not meant to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Nurse Gear

Under the Gear tab, you’ll find two shops in which you can purchase clothing, notebooks, coffee mugs and so forth.  Should you choose to purchase something from either of these online stores (Spreadshirt and/or Zazzle), Kati Kleber will get a very small percentage of the sale.  The decision was made to utilize these two companies because they facilitate order placement and fufillment, which in turn makes the items substantially cheaper than if this was completed by the FreshRN team.
