Inhalation: Diffuse or inhale directly.
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.

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 if dealing with high blood pressure or cardiac fibrillation. 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).

Fennel: Repeated use can result in contact sensitization. May cause skin sensitization if oxidized. To prevent oxidation, store in a dark, airtight container in a refrigerator. Use with caution if susceptible to epilepsy. Contraindicated during pregnancy. Avoid using if diagnosed with estrogen dependent cancer, endometriosis, or clotting disorder.
Lemongrass: The usage of this oil should be restricted while pregnant and breastfeeding. Not suitable for use on babies under 2. May interact with analgesic, anticonvulsant, and antidepressant, some chemotherapy medications.
