Pine Essential Oil
Carol says, "Selah are quality oils. Website info is excellent. Recipes for laundry detergent, face towels and deodorant are now routine in my house. This year, using Selah EO's I have healed a rash, stopped an allergic reaction to a bee sting, healed acne, repelled numerous bugs, stopped an allergic reaction to cat hair, relieved sinusitis, etc. An excellent year with Selah. Looking forward to 2016 with Selah. Happy New Year!"

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