Applications

Topical:  Apply on desired location for sunburn relief.

Safe for use on children 6 and up.

Pregnancy safe when used topically.

Do not diffuse this blend.  It has Aloe Vera in it and could clog your diffuser. 

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).

Cautions

All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion. It is not advised to take essential oils internally unless under the guidance of a licensed physician who is also certified in aromatherapy.

Aloe Vera:

Aloe may lower blood sugar levels. Caution is advised in people with diabetes or hypoglycemia, and in those taking drugs, herbs, or supplements that affect blood sugar. Blood glucose levels may need to be monitored by a qualified healthcare professional, including a pharmacist, and medication adjustments may be necessary.

Aloe may increase the risk of bleeding. Caution is advised in people with bleeding disorders or taking drugs that may increase the risk of bleeding. Dosing adjustments may be necessary.

Use cautiously in people with heart disease or electrolyte abnormalities. Use cautiously when taken by mouth or used as a laxative.

Use cautiously in people taking agents for the heart, agents for the stomach or intestines, agents that increase potassium excretion, cardiac glycosides, oral corticosteroids, oral hydrocortisone, sevoflurane, thyroid hormones, topical hydrocortisone, or zidovudine (AZT).

Avoid in people with abdominal pain that is sudden and severe, appendicitis, bowel obstruction, fecal impaction, kidney disease, liver disease, or in people taking agents toxic to the liver. Avoid use as an injection, during postoperative incision healing, during pregnancy or lactation, or for prolonged periods as a laxative.

Avoid with known allergy or sensitivity to Aloe vera, its parts, or plants of the Liliaceae family, such as garlic, onions, and tulips.

Although topical application is unlikely to be harmful during pregnancy or lactation, internal use is not suggested, due to theoretical stimulation of uterine contractions.

Lavender:  No known issues.

Peppermint:  Peppermint oil will antidote Homeopathic remedies. Please use caution when combining oils with homeopathy.

A note about Peppermint oil and Pregnancy: We have found that several professionals recommend that peppermint not be used by pregnant women. However, Tisserand and Price both categorize peppermint as ok. In an effort to give you only the best information possible, we contacted Mr. Tisserand and asked 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. If others think differently, I don't know what their thinking is based on.”

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).

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 oil inside the ear canal.
