Resting Essential Oil Blend
Captivating and soothing, Resting Essential Oil Blend helps to melt away the worries of the day and offers a delightfully peaceful aroma, helping to bring the mind and emotions to a place of restful calm.
Resting helps to still the overactive mind so that one may approach any situation with a sense of gathered tranquility. Often, too, we find that the bodily tensions tend to loosen up as well when the mind becomes settled and quiet.
Resting will not act as a sedative and induce sleep (so it can be used at any hour of the day!), but it does promote quality sleep as it often helps with snoring, sleepwalking, trouble falling asleep, impulsiveness, anxiety, overstimulation, and other similar issues.
If you are searching for a soothing, peaceful blend, this is the one!

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.

Tangerine: If this oil is oxidized, it can cause contact sensitization. Photosensitive: Avoid direct sunlight for up to 12 hours after topical use.
Orange: Photosensitive: Avoid direct sunlight for up to 12 hours after topical use.
Ylang ylang: Repeated use can possibly result in contact sensitization. Take care when using Ylang Ylang, for too high a concentration or using it for too long a time, can give rise to nausea and/or headache. Ylang-ylang essential oil has a deeply relaxing effect and should not be used prior to driving, operating machinery, or doing other tasks that require concentration. Use with caution on children under the age of two due to possible skin irritation.
