a little bit about me
Erin Oberlander is a Doctor of Musical Arts, a Certified Holistic Therapist, Herbalist, and a farmer’s daughter who has returned home to the North Dakota prairie as a modern homesteader. She has been working with essential oils on a regular basis for the past 13 years as owner of her company Prairie Soap House & Apothecary. The Intuitive & Seasonal Living Academy, an online course, was birthed out of this work as she and her collaborator, Kori Ann Faith, saw a need for people to get reconnected with Nature, themselves, and the Divine, and to create leverage in their health with the ancient wisdom traditions of Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine (www.intutiveseason.com).
In addition, she assists people to live healthier lives through improved nutrition, healthier mindsets, entrepreneurship, and leadership development through one-on-one consultations and private group coaching. As a former professor, she loves being in the Girl Gang Evolution wherein she can empower women with information and community. Beyond these interests, Erin is passionate about exploring the medicinal and nutritional aspects of native plants and indigenous lifeways and has begun distilling her own essential oils and hydrosols with plants she grows or gathers on the prairie. When not formulating products and working with clients, Erin can be found practicing yoga, singing, preserving, growing, and foraging food, hunting, and traveling.
She and her husband, Bill, have chickens, ducks, turkeys, geese, guinea fowl, and one magnificent peacock named Norman on their small permaculture homestead, Arcadia, where emphasis in life and practice is harmony with Nature, fellow humans, and the Divine. Erin’s work has been published in the NATS Journal of Singing, Project Light & Love, The Countryside Network, and the High Plains Reader.
