Mighty Fortress Essential Oil Blend

Sale price Price $45.00 Regular price Unit price  per 

Delighting the senses with an aroma of the most regal kind, Mighty Fortress is comprised of both exquisite and lovely oils that bring strong support to the immune system as well as the mental and emotional faculties. 

This blend reminds our emotions of the inner strength that the Lord gives His people, as well as the uplifting beauty of His love for us. Yes, oils can certainly strike the emotions and help us linger on the lovely things - and wonder at the strength found in elegance. And this one does just that. 

For gentler immune support (during pregnancy, for young children or the elderly) we suggest Armor, Jr. Essential Oil Blend or Immunity Essential Oil Blend.

      Inhalation:

      Diffuse for a max of 15 minutes out of every hour.

      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" (3. p. 96).

      All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion.
