Safe Haven Essential Oil Blend
The deep emotional effects of Safe Haven Blend may seem contradictory at first as it can both soothe and empower. It is not only light and uplifting but also supports the emotions in settling and stabilizing.
Safe Haven can be used to help reset the nervous system and balance the body. Used by many aromatherapists in their techniques, this blend is one that we all find ourselves reaching for again and again.
This is one of nine oils used in popular aromatherapy techniques.

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.

Bergamot: Photosensitive. Avoid direct sunlight for 12 hours after topical use. May cause skin sensitization if oxidized. To prevent oxidation, store in a dark, airtight container in a refrigerator.

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 (9, p. 315). 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 (8, p. 421). Use caution when dealing with low blood pressure (13). Use with caution on children under the age of two due to possible skin irritation.

Overall a wonderful experience. My favorite was opening my package and having a personal handwritten note, that made my day. Safe Haven is my absolute favorite oil! I homeschool and I notice a difference in my mood and patience when I'm diffusing it when in school session.
