Soft Essential Oil Blend
Named for its quick and effective results on the skin, this cleansing and relaxing blend may be used anytime the softness of the skin has been compromised and needs to be restored.
The most common uses are for injured or damaged skin such as: wounds (for initial cleaning and continued care), cuts, bruises, scrapes, stings, eczema, psoriasis, dry skin, sensitive skin issues, rashes, calming and soothing, emotional relaxation, and to ease pain and headaches.
Because it is impressively gentle, Soft is widely used during pregnancy (and after the baby arrives) for a multitude of issues for both mama and baby. (Soft, Jr. Spray is already safely pre-diluted for children 2+, for pregnancy and lactation.)
"Because the oils used in this blend were selected for particularly tender things, Soft is the blend most used in our home when targeting delicate issues. It is the safest, most gentle blend of essential oils in our store while also being the most effective." -Brittany, Owner

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" (Schnaubelt 96).
All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion.
Geranium: Dilute before applying to skin. Repeated use can result in contact sensitization.
Rosewood: None known.
Lavender: No known issues.
Roman Chamomile: This oil can irritate the skin.
Palmarosa: Skin irritation.
