      Inhalation:

      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" (3. p. 96).

      All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion.

      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. 

      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.

      Contraindicated via all usage routes with anticoagulants, antidepressants (MAOIs or SSRIs), diet drugs (Ephedrine), high blood pressure medications, hemophilia, liver or kidney disease, peptic ulcer, Pethidine, cardiac fibrillation, cigarette smoking (inhalation risk), G6PD deficiency, one week before and after childbirth or major surgery. 

      Birch: Do not use this oil if you are taking anticoagulant medication, facing surgery, suffer from hemophilia or other bleeding disorders. Should not be used on children. Avoid using while pregnant or breastfeeding. Contraindicated for GERD. Do not use internally.

      "Wintergreen [birch] oil has some wonderful properties, but I would not like to see it used at more than 5%. No one has died from dermal [topical] application, but there have been at least three reported cases of people taking blood-thinning medication who broke out in internal bruising when they applied methyl salicylate-containing products to their skin. It enhances the blood-thinning action of the drug, and blood leaks out of the blood vessels." -Tisserand

      Wintergreen: Contraindicated if taking anticoagulant medication, having major surgery, and all other bleeding disorders. Do not use if pregnant, breastfeeding, or with children due to possible risk of developing Reye's syndrome. Do not use if there is a salicylate sensitivity or ADD/ADHD. Do not use orally if a history of Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Numerous cases of salicylate poisoning have been reported.

      Peppermint: Peppermint oil will antidote Homeopathic remedies.  Use caution when combining oils with homeopathy. Use with caution if dealing with high blood pressure or cardiac fibrillation. 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 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).

      Clove: THIS OIL CAN CAUSE SERIOUS SKIN IRRITATION. DILUTE IT WELL BEFORE APPLYING TO SKIN. Use caution when applying to hypersensitive or diseased or damaged skin. Do not use topically on children under 2 years of age.  May inhibit blood clotting. Repeated use can result in extreme contact sensitization. 

      Helichrysum: Non toxic, moderate risk of skin irritation. (7. p. 309-310)  Avoid using this oil with homeopathic remedies.  Do not apply to or near the face of infants and children under the age of 10.

      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.
