Diffuse or inhale directly.
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.
Tarragon: May inhibit blood clotting. Use this oil with caution if on blood thinners, have fragile skin or blood vessels, hemophilia, or other bleeding disorders.
Ginger: Use this oil with caution if on blood thinners, have fragile skin or blood vessels, hemophilia, or other bleeding disorders. Repeated use can possibly result in contact sensitization.
Peppermint: Peppermint oil will antidote Homeopathic remedies. Use caution when combining oils with homeopathy.
Some professionals recommend that peppermint not be used by pregnant women. However, Tisserand and Price both categorize peppermint as ok. After contacting Mr. Tisserand and asking his opinion regarding peppermint essential oil and pregnancy, this was his reply:
“I have always believed that if peppermint oil was risky in pregnancy there would need to be warnings on peppermint-flavored gum and candy. There is evidence that menthol is safe in pregnancy (p. 592 of my book) and there's none that I am aware of that either menthol or peppermint poses any risk.”
Use with caution if dealing with high blood pressure or cardiac fibrillation. Use with caution during breastfeeding as it may reduce milk supply. Do not apply to or near the face of infants and children or other inhalation methods under the age of 6 (can cause breathing problems in babies and young children).
Juniper Berry: Avoid using with liver and kidney disease.
Anise: Anise oil is potentially carcinogenic based on estragole content. May inhibit blood clotting. Avoid using if pregnant or breastfeeding. Avoid using if you have or have had an estrogen-dependent cancer. Avoid using at all on children under 5 years old. Can irritate sensitive skin and has been known to cause dermatitis in some individuals. Use in moderation.
Fennel: Repeated use can result in contact sensitization. May cause skin sensitization if oxidized. To prevent oxidation, store in a dark, airtight container in a refrigerator. Use with caution if susceptible to epilepsy. Contraindicated during pregnancy. Avoid using if diagnosed with estrogen dependent cancer, endometriosis, or clotting disorder.
Lemongrass: The usage of this oil should be restricted while pregnant and breastfeeding. Not suitable for use on babies under 2. May interact with analgesic, anticonvulsant, and antidepressant, some chemotherapy medications.
Patchouli: Do not use patchouli in cases of anorexia or with elderly people who have lost their appetite as it can reduce appetite. May inhibit blood clotting.
Frankincense: None known.
Tarragon: Use with caution as it "may inhibit platelet aggregation based on in vitro data either for the oil or a major constituent." (7, p. 117)
General EO Cautions:
If for any reason you get essential oils in your eyes, put carrier oil along the eyebrows above the eyes and on the cheekbones below the eyes.
Do not put essential oils inside your ear canal.

This product specifically is amazing. Most of the time I don’t even have to take or apply any just the smell is enough to cut any nausea.
Great help with indigestion
Have been suffering with severe reflux over the past several months. I ordered this oil and have been using it for just a couple of weeks. It seems to be making a big difference. I’ve been able to sleep without the problems I was having.
Tummy Troubles Blend is a Favorite
Tummy Troubles has become a staple oil that my husband and I both use. It truly does calm any feelings of bloating after heavy meals, heartburn and just general stomach discomfort. I would recommend this to be one blend that everyone should keep on hand.
Keep on hand at all times
This is an essential for me because I have frequent tummy aches. This is not medically authorized or deemed safe (I get that) but I put a few drops in an empty capsule and take with water. It helps with nausea and cramping so quickly!
Love Tummy Troubles Oil
I want to always have this oil on hand. I use it for indigestion, acid reflux, upset stomach and other tummy issues. It works great and I use this oil before I use any other medications. Highly recommend!
