FTC Disclosure

The FTC requires bloggers to disclose whenever there is a financial interest or bias related to a recommendation or whenever a blogger’s opinion may be financially motivated in any way. More importantly, I have a desire to always be transparent and honest with readers and to disclose how I make money from this website.


I am an advisor/investor to ThriveMarket.com and may make money at some point in the future if Thrive Market does well financially. I agreed to be an advisor to help create a budget-friendly online resource for healthy food (think Costco + Whole Foods + Amazon), and while my interest was not just financially motivated, I may one day make money from this advisor/investor relationship. Since I am an advisor, I was able to negotiate a deal for my readers and you can get a coconut oil gift box at no cost (just $1.95 shipping) if you want to try out Thrive. Find out more here.

Affiliate Links

The FTC also requires disclosure about any affiliate links. I specifically note at the top of a post when affiliate links are present, but for disclosure purposes, assume that any link you click on is an affiliate link. This means that I will earn a small commission from Amazon or other company if you decide to purchase the product linked to.

This means that if you order natural toothpaste or a banana slicer from a link on WellnessMama.com (like those) I earn a small commission (as much as a whopping $1.65 or $0.32, respectively), and these small commissions eventually add up to help me do things like pay for hosting and feed my kids. For this reason, I’m very grateful when you use a link (like this one to Amazon) because it helps me keep WellnessMama.com up and running and avoid an army of tiny children (otherwise known as pajama terrorists) complaining of hunger.

Many of the links on Wellness Mama are purely for informational purposes, but I do earn a small commission on many such links including links to books, products and services so please assume for any given link, I may earn a commission of some kind if you purchase a product.

I evaluate potential advertising partners on a case by case basis, whose products, mission, and values align with mine. I do not work with or allow the following:

  • Paid or sponsored blog posts
  • Free products for review
  • Paid links or link exchanges
  • Brand ambassadorships
  • Ad networks or other non-curated advertisements
  • Third party promotional companies or services
  • Network marketing, multi-level marketing, or other pyramid structures
  • Unsolicited joint venture promotions

I do not write paid posts. I do not accept free products for review. My thoughts and opinions are my own and not of those of any sponsor or advertiser. If I link to a product on this website, it is because I have purchased it myself, use it for my family and think it is high-quality.

I make a sincere effort to be respectful, kind and transparent on WellnessMama.com and ask the same respect from you. For this reason, rude, offensive, or harmful comments will not be tolerated. You are welcome to disagree, just do it nicely. Read my full comment policy by clicking here.
