Aroma Mama’s Disclosures
I am an affiliate to several outstanding companies only aligning myself with companies that I have a personal experience with and feel that their service or product would be of value to the readers of Aroma Mama.
Potentially, I make a small compensation when a purchase is made through one of my affiliate links at no additional cost to you. There will be a disclosure statement on every post where there is an affiliate link. I will always give my honest opinion of the products and services I include in this blog even when I receive forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.
Aroma Mama is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.
The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

Aroma Mama’s Comment Policy
Leaving a comment in the comment section can be a great way of creating relationships and building up a community, but feelings can easily be hurt as well even when rudeness is not intended. I reserve the right to remove any comments that I feel are not kind or inappropriate. And please, no spamming!
You are entitled to your opinions, but please be nice. It is often easy to write what is on our mind when we are anonymous or sitting behind a screen, but remember there are real people on the other end that can be affected.
When you leave a comment, please remember to treat others the way you would like to be treated, and then take it one notch nicer.
