Welcome and thank you for your interest in me, my business, and this website!

I have been through a lot in life–food allergies, eczema, Asperger’s, adrenal burnout, heavy metals.  I have learned a lot, and though it seems the learning is endless, I love sharing what I can with my great community of readers.

Before contacting me through this form, please read the following.

And remember. If your question or comment has to do with a certain topic or post on my blog, please post your comment there, if at all possible.  My email box is way.too.full so I need to trim it down. Also, by asking in the comment form on my blog, you allow others to benefit from your comment/question and from my response as well.  Thanks for understanding!

1.  Advertising, Sponsorships, and Giveaways:

If you are interested in a sponsorship, giveaway, or advertising opportunity with Whole New Mom, you can find current statistics and more information here.

2.  Questions about Diet and Health:

I receive emails daily from readers wanting to know if I have ideas regarding their health situation.

First of all, as I have stated many times, I am not a doctor.  Or anything like that.  I was Pre-Med in college and read a lot about health.  One day I hope to get more training.  However–not yet.

I so love helping others, but this blog takes a lot of time and while I would love to give out free advice all the time, I just can’t afford to do that.

If I can respond quickly to your question, I will try, but please understand that I am a busy homeschooling wife, mom, and blogger and my family has to come first.

3.  Essential Oils Company Questions:

I get loads of these daily, asking me what I think about different companies.  I so wish I could answer all of these, but I can’t.  I am trying to juggle this blog, family, community, church and homeschooling and I just can’t investigate every company out there.  Most are buying from the same “experts” and so my answer will typically be the same.

If you are wondering about a company and whether I would recommend it or not:

Please read this post that has some guidelines on the qualities of a good essential oils company.

Thank you :).

General Questions:

Have a question about a recipe, health topic, etc.?  The best way for you to ask is to leave a question / comment in the comments section at the bottom of a related post on my blog.  That way, all of my readers benefit from your question and my answer as well.  You will also get an emailed response of my reply.

    Hello, I have been reading your site. THank you for all the valuable information. I am now a YL distributor, but I’m not selling the product, only did it for the oils (for family and self). I only have had them for 3 days. I have sinsus infections and acid reflux (hiatal hernia) constantly, but I see everyone talking about the sinus infections and how they were cured, but not telling what products to use. I see where you tell others to email you. can you please let me know what products you’re using for sinsues.

    Thank you

  2. THIS WEBSITE IS DRIVING ME CRAZY. I was trying to send you a message about how page 7 – final answer of the essential oil research – cannot be viewed. It only freezes up. I gave it a break, tried looking it up a different day and in every different way I could thing of, same results. SO frustrating. When I went to the comments page and began to send you an email it just redirected me randomly to here. I don’t even know where I’m posting and I don’t care any more. I’ve wasted more time on this site without getting the info I was trying to. PLEASE get it worked out. I read your whole essential oil series years ago and found it super informative. I just couldn’t remember which oil you ended up choosing. I think I’ll go with the Native something or other, the one you have advertised somewhere on your site, since I remember you ended up being an affiliate. Whatever. Thanks.

    Hi! I am interested in essential oils, and read all the posts you had on there, leading up to recommending Native American Nutritionals. I have looked at their oils, and blends, especially, and have a little concern about the “spiritual” overtones in some of them. Do they do anything”spiritual” while producing their oils? What company was Paul Dean from?
    I just have a little caution on that note.

    What would be your second best choice of oil companies?

    Thank you for doing all that “legwork” for us – it was very helpful.


    • Hi there. They don’t do anything to them to my knowledge, whereas some of the companies that I talked to did muscle testing (perhaps spiritual) and more than that during the preparation of oils and blends.

      Mr. Dean used to work with Young Living. I can ask if there were other companies but I don’t believe that there were.

      If there is a sentence or 2 that you are concerned about please let me know. Mr. Dean claims to be a Christian. I have talked to him about some similar concerns with other companies so I know he is open to hearing criticism on this. Thanks!

    Thank you for all your research, it truly is apprectiated. I homeschooled and taught once a month cooking. My children are out of the home but bless you and your family. I noticed you mention about church being important and you lived in Japan. What denomination affiliation was that with? Just curious as I love hearing stories about people who have done that. Thank you and God bless you

    Cant wait to try the oils I ordered from you

    • Hi there. Thanks for commenting! I wasn’t affiliated with any denomination. I just went on my own – which wasn’t entirely a wise decision :) I didn’t have much support there and it was pretty rough going. I didn’t know much and chose to be a tentmaker. Good to be in touch and hope you like the oils – they aren’t “from me” per se but I do like the company :).

    I am wanting to order a 5 tray dehydrator 3000 series w/timer black. Do I do that through you here? I want to be sure to receive the discount price. This is a gift and I wondered how long it takes for shipping? Thank you so much. My daughter in law and both of my grandchildren have Lyme disease and I want to help them get the best possible nutrition.

    • Hi there. It’s easiest if you email me at wholenewmom at gmail dot com. I will give you the discount for sure. The machine is shipped right after I order it and comes FedEx from the West Coast so it depends on where you live – what a great gift!!

  6. i tried to contact do terra about the titanium dioxide in their Onguard toothpaste. what is the latest on this?

  7. N Alberstadt says:

    You stated you have used the oils internally. How? By mouth or some other private way?
    And would Lavender be a good oil to use internally?

    Please reply via my EMail

  8. You mentioned in one of your posts that you had been using the Nutritional Balancing for yourself and your family. I just wanted to know how long you tried it and what your results were. I’d really appreciate it if you could respond as I am seriously considering this for my family. Thanks :)

  9. Amanda Klepper says:

    Just wondering what kind of make up you recommend. I am switching to more natural and I have no idea where to start. I am so glad I found your blog just in time, by the way! I will be ordering from Native American Naturals very soon.
