Review by:
This is just the best book out there for doTERRA users and wellness advocates, and it's great for anyone who wants more info on single oils, what they do, etc. I don't necessarily buy it every year but I had to get it THIS year since the doTERRA names made their comeback (I missed them!).

I'm just in it all the time, looking stuff up - great resource! (Posted on 7/5/2019)

I really love the newest edition! It is great with having doTERRA brand names on the blends! The bold and vibrant new pictures are awesome! Love the new material in this book and will definitely be reading over it! Thank you for a great update on a gorgeous book that I feel naked without! (Posted on 3/7/2019)

I've always purchased the large hardcover book. After listening and watching the video on these books, I decided on purchasing 2 of them, one for my niece and one for me. I can carry this with me in my purse and refer to it any time. I also love the addition of doTERRA oils since I'm a consultant.

And, I also ordered the book "SPOIL YOUR PET" because I use oils on him and love to learn more and more about anything which may come up...hope nothing does, but the book is a life saver! (Posted on 2/5/2019)

This book has a lot of great information! I'm really excited they added the dōTERRA brand names to this edition.
The pages are of the book are... paper thin? You can see through them, when you turn them they crease. I would be more than willing to pay a little more for a book that I don't have to be extra gentle with for fear that it will tear. Again, the information contained in the book is awesome, I think it's the best one yet. It's a shame the quality of the product is not as amazing as the information within. (Posted on 1/23/2019)

I have bought every edition of Modern Essentials that there has been. I have never been disappointed. It's so helpful that the blend names could be put back into the book. My builders are given this book to help them with build their business. Knowledge is power! (Posted on 11/29/2018)

I depend on Modern Essential book a lot. The 10th Edition is the best edition ever! Thanks for putting so much great information in an easy to find and understand format. (Posted on 11/16/2018)
Review by:
Fantastic book. I use it daily. I just wish the oil chart in the back cover still had the oil blends included or added a page before. But I love everything else about this book. The oils listed by name is a great improvement! (Posted on 11/9/2018)

Love it. Wait for the new edition as I am a new oiler. Great information. Not only on the oils but for looking up things you want help with. Use it all the time. It is a must have book. (Posted on 10/28/2018)
Review by:
I must say, I've been a huge fan of the competitor book. But you took a good book and made it great. I love that there names are now the same as my oil bottles and all the "Additional Research" that's included.

But the new appendix items are so awesome. I love knowing that the antifungal properties in Melaleuca are greater than in Oregano. I would never have guessed that. And the last two pages give a great snapshot of every oil, and clear dilution guidelines. This is genius. Thanks for putting all this information in an easy to find and understand format. I highly recommend the new Modern Essentials 10th edition. (Posted on 10/12/2018)

I have every edition beginning with the 4th, and the Modern Essential is such an educational resource for me, my family and my business. I depend on it for guidance and education. I am always excited to get the new release every year, but this year even more so! I can identify products much easier because the products actually are doTERRA’s product brand names! Thank you!
