We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service.

All content and photography, unless stated otherwise, is owned by Earthy Embers. Please do not use any of the content on this site without permission from the owner.
Earthy Embers occasionally uses photos from free stock photo websites (such as Canva) and we will do our best to credit the photographer when we are able to. Sometimes Canva does not list the artist, making it difficult to give them credit. If we haven’t credited the artist/author, please let us know their name so we can give them credit. We would never knowingly steal any content that isn’t available to use on our site. We do our very best to make sure this doesn’t happen but if you find content we shouldn’t be using on our site, please notify us so we can remove the content as quickly as possible.
We often read through scientific articles to give you the best information possible. This means we will sometimes use quotes from these articles. We will always list any sources we have used not only to credit the author(s) but to allow you the opportunity to research for yourself.
