Shipping. October 20, 2014
Reviewer: Kathryn Tewes from Jackson, MN United States  
I don't usually complain about shipping costs, but I felt shipping cost was quite high.  And when I received my package, one end go the box was completely open. It had very little tape securing the ends of the box. Thankfully all items were still in the box, but I don't quite understand how some had not slipped out. The box contained one large ME book and four packs of  ME reference cards.  I find that all of these items are not very user friendly due to the lack of the doTERRA names for the oils. I think it would be very confusing to use them.  I bought the large ME book just to use as a reference. If I had known the reference cards used only the generic names, I probably would not have purchased them.  I doubt if I will use them, unless i
can find or make a "cheat sheet" that is quite compact to attach to the reference cards.

Modern Essentials no longer user friendly October 20, 2014
Reviewer: Malcolm Otis from MADISON, AL United States  
The sixth edition omits the doTerra products names making this formerly "must have" reference very difficult and frustrating to use.  Some excuse about international regulations or something.  Unless this gets corrected I'm afraid I have purchased my last one.

I hate the blends section October 14, 2014
Reviewer: Dianne Cox from Blythe, GA United States  
This is a doTerra book why not use the name of the blends?  It is crazy to expect a new person to be able to figure out from the generic title of the blend, I've had some experience with it and I still can't tell you what one there trying to talk about without looking at the ingredients on a bottle that I have,,,,,,, what if someone doesn't have a bottle to figure things out with????   VERY POOR DECISION to do it this way, I sure hope in the future you go back to what works.  I hate this book, only wish I hadn't given my 5th edition away to a new advocate now I have to buy another.     Also Why on Earth don't you show pictures of the actual bottle if I could give this no stars I would,,,,, Give me the 5th edition and I will copy the new oils and blends and stick them in the back.   I bought 6 copies to give to new advocates now I feel I have to edit those books myself to allow them to properly use them.

Reviewer: Susan Chambers from Magnolia, AR United States  
The only problem is the incredibly high shipping rate. I appreciate that you got that down. Pls revise your site to give options that are more affordable. I like your products and would like to refer your page, but the shipping rates are crazy! Thank you!
