Hard to Read November 13, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Santa Ff, NM United States  
The color of the print makes it hard to see. Missing Blend info... I am using the older book and then going to the new one for the new oils... PITA..

ME book November 5, 2014
Reviewer: Kathryn Tewes from Jackson, MN United States  
My order 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.

No blend names is a small problem November 5, 2014
Reviewer: SHARON LOPEZ from LAKESIDE, CA United States  
My first response was very much like everyone else's,
" What! no blend names, how will newbies know what they should buy from Doterra". There is a very easy fix, put cap labels next to the blend titles before you hand out the books.

Not as user friendly November 4, 2014
Reviewer: JR from Mount pleasant , MI United States  
I hate that they no longer put the blend names in the book, it makes it less user friendly. I do prefer the older version for that reason. That being said, I do like the updated cover, it looks modern and fresh.
