Frankincense and Myrrh Essential Oil Blend
Among the most costly substances of the ancient world, Frankincense and Myrrh have been used together for medicines and perfumes for ages. Biblical history reveals the value of Frankincense and Myrrh when the Magi traveled endless miles, following a star, to deliver these costly gifts to the young Messiah.
When blended together, Frankincense and Myrrh comprise an astounding antimicrobial blend and a fragrance of sweetness, strength and dignity. There is a great deal of wisdom in this ancient combination.
Frankincense and Myrrh is a select blend of essential oils including:
Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha), Cedar Wood (Cedrus deodara), Frankincense (Boswellia frereana), Frankincense (Boswellia carteri), Cedar Wood (Juniperus virginiana), Cistus (Cistus ladaniferus), Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata) and Vanilla (Vanilla planifolia).
The 10 mL roll-on is in a base of fractionated coconut oil (diluted at 5%).

Inhalation: Diffuse or inhale directly.
Internal: Although the quality of Selah Oils is excellent, it is not advised to take essential oils internally unless under the guidance of a certified physician who is also certified in aromatherapy. We recommend getting internal dosing instructions from a licensed physician as some essential oils are not recommended for oral consumption. This is in no way a reflection on our oil quality, only a matter of safety and caution with respect to how concentrated essential oils are. When used within safe parameters, and under your physician's care, the quality of our essential oils is such that they can be used internally if deemed appropriate.
However, with that said, it is important to remember the extreme concentration of essential oils. "Using essential oils by rubbing them into the skin or via inhalation is in many cases more effective than oral delivery" (Schnaubelt 96).
All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion.
