If you are aiming for healthy lung function, you are going to want to start here.  Inhale Essential Oil Blend delivers swift support to struggling lungs and takes quick action against viral issues, bronchitis, asthma, and pneumonia. 

This is a powerfully refreshing blend when combatting respiratory issues.  

*We offer a very similar blend called Breeze that more effectively targets seasonal allergies, bacterial issues, and fungus.  While the two are much alike in action, our Inhale Blend is more specifically formulated to take action against viral issues, bronchitis, asthma, and pneumonia.  But honestly, you really can't go wrong with either one of these fantastic blends.

    Maximum Adult Topical Dilution: 12%

    Inhalation: 

    Diffuse or rub a drop on palms and inhale. 

    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.

    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. 

    Contraindicated via all usage routes with anticoagulant medication (such as aspirin, heparin and warfarin due to Birch), salicylate sensitivity (may apply with ADD/ADHD, oral use due to Birch), cardiac fibrillation (due to Peppermint), G6PD deficiency (due to Peppermint), Cholestasis (oral use due to Peppermint), cigarette smoking (inhalation risk due to Peppermint per Rhiannon Harris - May cause increased lung permeability to nicotine and menthol slows the ability to clear nicotine; as a precaution, allow several hours to lapse between cigarette use and inhalation), GERD (caution oral use due to Birch and Peppermint; several studies suggest that enteric-coated peppermint oil capsules may help relieve common symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, whereas non-enteric coated forms may worsen heartburn and nausea), one week before and after major surgery and childbirth due to Birch, peptic ulcer (due to Birch), hemophilia and other bleeding disorders (due to Birch), severe hepatic or renal impairment (contraindicated orally due to Birch). To avoid skin sensitization risk, do not use old and oxidized oils.

    Ravintsara: This oil may antidote homeopathic remedies. May cause skin sensitization if oxidized. To prevent oxidation, store in a dark, airtight container in a refrigerator. Do not apply to or near the face of infants and children under the age of 10 (can cause breathing problems in babies and young children).   

    Eucalyptus Radiata: Do not apply to or near the face of infants and children under the age of 10 (can cause breathing problems in babies and young children). Avoid using this oil with homeopathic remedies. 

    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 breastfeed 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). 

    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.

    "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 

    Lemon:  Photosensitive: Avoid direct sunlight for a minimum of 12 hours after application. Can cause extreme skin irritation. 

    Frankincense: None known.

    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.
