Cleanse Essential Oil Blend
Cleanse is a refreshing blend that stands up to its name. Whether it be a cut or a scrape, a spill or a stain, the room you are in or the musty box you just pulled out of the attic, Cleanse will disinfect it and deodorize it.
This blend is also fantastic for dealing with all things bug - cleaning and soothing bites or stings, and even repelling the pesky critters in the first place.
This is an incredibly functional blend to keep on hand for an endless list of daily uses.

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.
