Our Story

About us

Selah Organics was founded in 2010 after an exhaustive search of the current market for sustainable pain products with no side-effects or harmful ingredients, to no avail. We found that most products on the market, including (and especially) prescription drugs, are designed to cover up the symptoms rather than treat the source of the problem.  For someone facing long term pain treatment, this is defeating and overwhelming. At Selah Organics, we are seeking to change the way people approach pain management and give them hope for effective and natural treatment. All Selah Organics products contain only 100% organic food grade ingredients including high-quality organic extra virgin olive oil, organic therapeutic grade essential oils, organic butters and organic herbs. You can be confident you are buying the finest, most effective handcrafted products available on the market - made exclusively in Colorado.

Our organic pain salves were born after owner Jason Castellano experienced a very serious snowmobile accident in 2009, shattering his femur in three places and breaking his ankle in two places, requiring several major surgeries. He now has a steel rod in his femur and two screws in his ankle.  This came five years after he had already been in a very serious motorcycle accident that nearly took his leg, leaving him with a rod in his tibia causing chronic swelling and wide spread bodily pain. Simple things like barometric pressure changes or a long day on his feet left him with inflammation and chronic pain.  The trauma and the pain were severely affecting his overall quality life and limited his ability to perform daily tasks – at only 28 years old, he refused to accept that he must take prescription drugs for the rest of his life in order to experience any kind of quality of life.

“My doctor would freely prescribe me Percocet and oxycodone, in order to achieve pain relief.  I found that the damage I was doing simply because I could not feel the pain was worse that the pain itself.  I found myself in a cycle of needing more and more medication, more frequently.  My body was suffering from the harmful medications I was taking while only masking my pain.  I found that for pain relief this was not a sustainable long-term solution.  

I have found that inflammation in and around the joints and nerves causes most bodily pain.  After much research, trial and error, I formulated a product that reversed the pain process by treating the source of the pain rather than simply covering it up.  The reason most products today do not work long-term is that they have harmful ingredients and toxins that buildup when used for extended periods of time, only compounding the problem due to the inflammation caused by the accumulation of these toxins.”

Healing Salves

Selah Organics Healing Salves combine a proprietary blend of organic herbs, hand selected for their powerful medicinal properties, and organic therapeutic grade essential oils.  Our products are designed to treat the source of many discomforting ailments, allowing your body’s natural balance to be restored. 

Body Butters

Selah Organics Organic Body Butters are a combination of nature’s most luxurious skin moisturizers made from 100% organic food grade ingredients.  As with all Selah Organics products, every product we make is designed to treat the source and not simply mask the symptoms.  Our organic body butters have a high concentration of vitamins A, E, F and the essential fatty acids that protect and thoroughly hydrate the skin.  Formulated in the simplicity of high-quality ingredients, there is no need for the harmful chemical additives found in most products in today’s market.  The skin is the body’s largest organ and everything that is applied topically is absorbed into the blood stream.  Because of this, we are dedicated to formulating products exclusively with ingredients that can be absorbed without potentially harmful side-effects.

Aromatherapy and Essential Oils

Selah Organics aromatherapy products and essential oils harness the power of natural healing and symptom relief.  Essential oils are the foundation of Selah Organics and we believe that God has provided extremely powerful plants for our use in healing the body.  We handcraft several exclusive essential oil blends for diffusing and aromatherapy inhalers to take these wonderful blends on the road or for use at home.

We are confident that our organic personal care products will be as effective for you as they have been for our current clients and family.  At Selah Organics, our promise to you is to always deliver the finest products available; focusing on the quality of our ingredients and being diligent through every step of the process to formulate and create the highest-quality handcrafted personal care products available on the market.  Blessings and thank you for your support of our Colorado family-owned company!
