Generally regarded as safe (GRAS) by the FDA


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.


Repeated use can result in contact sensitization.

General EO 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.

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.

I ordered Copaiba and it arrived at my home in just a few short days. It is a great oil for pain and helps numb the area, providing some pain relief. I would definitely recommend this product and the Selah Oils company.

Love this Oil!

You can tell these oils are truly high quality. So happy I found them!


Favorite oil

I love Copaiba! I have not taken any oral pain reliever for over a year. For aches and pains (knees, back, etc.) I use Comfort and Copaiba and it works better than an Advil. I also love to add Copaiba to my baths.

Acne solution

My teenage son really struggles with acne. He has completely stopped all of his other treatments and now only uses Copaiba oil and a natural moisturizer. We have seen a much improvement.

This is my go-to oil for severe pain relief. It is also one of the oils I use in my mixture for migraines. Cant be without this one. Its always in my purse and one is beside my bed.
