Is SSL recommended for this setup?

I host my own personal website. I also host my own DNS, email and MySQL server.

The server runs FreeBSD 10 using jails. I have BIND9, Apache, Postfix/Dovecot and MySQL server in their own jail.

Each jail has its own IP address. I setup four network aliases in my rc.conf file to give me a total of four + one main different IP addresses on one adapter.

Since Wordpress/phpMyAdmin/Roundcube communicate to the MySQL server through this method of network aliases, should I be concerned about using SSL even though it's on a local network?

Or is this method similar to a MySQL server communicating to Wordpress on the loop back adapter?
