Armor Essential Oil Blend
Legend has it that during the Bubonic Plague a band of thieves armed themselves with a blend of herbs as they robbed and plundered the homes of the dying and deceased. The unique antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antiviral properties of the herbs protected the thieves from "Black Death" as they stole from the wealthy.
This select blend of essential oils is formulated from what we know of this legendary, protective blend of the thieves. Whether the legend is true or not, we can't be certain - but there is mounting evidence proving the efficacy of this blend of superior quality essential oils and their phenomenal results.
For gentler immune support (during pregnancy, for young children or the elderly) we suggest the Immunity Blend.

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.
