A note about internal use of essential oils: 

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).

CAUTION:  Do not use essential oils on sensitive areas - even diluted!  Do not use essential oils in your eyes or ear canals.  That's just bad and hurts a lot! Thanks!

"Cystitis (urinary tract infection) responds quickly to 1 to 3 drops of essential oil in a glass of water.... can be drunk repeatedly during the day.  In the beginning of an acute condition, this can be done every 20 minutes and symptoms will diminish quickly.  Then the frequency of consumption of the tea tree drink can be reduced.  Treating cystitis with Tea Tree oil is highly effective.  Nonetheless, if the cystitis is recurrent, diet or lifestyle changes may be required for a full resolution." (Schnaubelt 134)

Frankincense Oil and Cancer...

"And frankincense oil, if you look at the research today, it is probably the most powerful essential oil, if not the most powerful supplement period when it comes to natural cancer treatment, in my opinion... There’s a study that came out of the UK pretty recently showing that frankincense oil is effective at shrinking tumors. It’s effective against ovarian cancer, colon cancer, and breast cancer. And so that boswellian in frankincense, very, very powerful compound at fighting and treating cancer." -Dr. Josh Axe
