To be in compliance with the FTC ruling that bloggers need to disclose if they are being paid or compensated for their posts, the following is my full disclosure policy and how I do business here at The Oils Chat.
On this website you will find information about essential oils, how to use them, network marketing practices, pursuing a network marketing business, and more. All of the posts on this blog, unless otherwise noted and credited, are written by me.
The various home information you will find here is from my own personal experience and I’m definitely not an expert, just a woman who likes to live a natural lifestyle and pursue my own business. If you attempt to do any project or follow any advice found on or via this blog, please take precautions and make sure to research to find out the best method for your needs. The Oils Chat cannot be held responsible and is in no way liable for your personal safety or the outcome of your projects. If you choose to link to a project, recipe, tutorial or otherwise instructions listed here or any information on this site, please provide a full follow link back to its original page and source.
All photos on this site that are not sourced are taken by me are right protected and should be credited to The Oils Chat if utilized on another site for promotional purposes of this blog only. If you want to share my projects and ideas, please do NOT share full posts, multiple images or present content from this site as your own. I ask that you paraphrase and share no more than two images and link back to the original post, not my home page. Failure to link back and credit this site as their source constitutes a copyright violation. All photos not taken by me are credited and linked to their outside source. They are published according to the U.S. Copyright Fair Use Act, title 17, U.S. Code.
Advertising and Sponsorships
To support the cost of running this business, I do accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, and other forms of compensation. I also participate in advertising and affiliate networks. You will know when I do a sponsored post, or if there is a post that contains affiliate links, since I will write that in the post itself. Compensation is for my time in writing and preparing the post, doing the project, using the products, photography and all that behind the scenes business fun you don’t get to see often. Ad networks are in the blog area and sidebar.
Since I believe in true partnerships with brands and companies, write this blog with true integrity and keep the experience of my readers as my top priority, I will not be influenced by any form of compensation. This means, that I will be honest in my review of a product and in my recommendations to my readers.
Occasionally I’m given products, ask for products or paid in exchange for promotion. Since I only select to work with brands and companies that I believe are a good fit for myself and my readers, I will always be honest in my opinions and experiences. All opinions expressed on this blog or in my various social media profiles are strictly my own. I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider. This site does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
