Modern Essentials 6th Edition April 23, 2015
Reviewer: Donna Robertson from Grenada, MS  
I enjoyed the book but it is not as easy to navigate as the 5th edition. Serval of the specials information from the 5th book has been left out like the aroma touch massage info.  I assume this was an effort to make it more universal but for a doTERRA person kinda disappointing.

Modern Essentials Book April 22, 2015
Reviewer: Monika Knight from Cleveland, GA United States  
I already had the small spiral. The hardback gives more information and is a great reference book to have.

6th edition of Modern Essentials April 20, 2015
Reviewer: Christina Bettis from Roslyn, WA United States  
I love the book, it's absolutely beautiful and very handy.  The only thing I don't like, which is a frustrating point, is that for the oil blends, it uses the sub-names instead of the real names.  I understand why they do that, but I still don't like it.  It should automatically come with a translation chart, so that when you give the book to a new enrollee, they know which oil the book is talking about.  That would be nice.  It could easily be a bookmark type that is inserted into the book.
