Missing critical info October 31, 2014
Reviewer: Jamie Larrison from Rochester, IN United States  
First off, as someone else mentioned the shipping on this is ridiculously high, about double what it should be.
Because the names of the blends are omitted you have to do lots of label reading and manually figure out each and every blend. And there are a few dozen to figure out. This alone makes it almost worthless to give to someone not familiar with doterra. I wish I could have bought the 5th edition. I understand regulations have changed, but there needs to be a better solution than offering a book where the reader has to do research to try and figure out what you wrote.

Modern Essentials 6th Edition October 28, 2014
Reviewer: Sylvia Lewis from Mapleton, IL United States  
This is ridiculous.  I just recommended this book to a new person and it will be completely useless for them.  Now I have to retract my recommendation and try to find a 5th edition out there that will make sense to people.  So frustrating.  What's the sense of buying it if it doesn't give any blend or supplement names?!?

Some great new features October 28, 2014
Reviewer: Jaimie from Spokane Valley, WA United States  
Some of the things I love about the sixth edition: new cover design, detailed description of types of testing with pictures, and the revised personal usage guide. It's too bad that the blend names have been removed, but I understand it is an important step for liability reasons. For those of you who are complaining so much about this, know that there is a note section in the back with the generic blend names already listed. Instead of slamming this good company, you could have spent your time writing in the blend names! Use sticky notes on each page with the blend name. It's just not a big deal!

Generic blend names are worthless October 27, 2014
Reviewer: Frustrated in CA from Anaheim, CA United States  
I agree with the other reviews, changing the blend names to generic make it utterly worthless, especially if you are new.  What is the real reason? to gain market share from other oil brand users?  It doesn't even make sense, because the recipes vary from company to company so how can you list what they do if the ingredients vary?  Change it back!

DO NOT LIKE October 27, 2014
Reviewer: Lou Ann  
I do not like this edition.  Not user friendly without the blend names for doTERRA.  Glad I still have my 5th edition.  Wish I would have known before purchasing one.
