This hardback book is such a blessing! It is also a nice gift to provide to clients after they've enrolled with doTERRA. There is more included in here, since it does state COMPREHENSIVE after all, than the softback book. I highly recommend this! I have noticed since the 2016 to the 2017 production there are more aliments mentioned (as the common ones we started to see come about). (Posted on 3/29/2018)

I bought the latest edition as I expected updates to the "old" blend names. Such as "Protective Blend" being changed to it's current name of On Guard. I was truly disappointed. The book had a lot more info about how to make things that I will enjoy. I think it does a more thorough job of explaining symptoms and giving options of treatments.

I have several copies of different versions. Just as well, as the Ninth Edition is missing definitions of the inner area of the ear. When the auricular internal body points image was "blown up" on the page, some of the definitions of those letter abbrev. "disappeared". Hopefully, they will be in the next edition.

AromaTools says: Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We'll pass this along to our Publications team. If you experience any other issue with your product, please contact Customer Service so that we can help you resolve your concern.

I don't sign up a customer without giving them a Modern Essentials. Though sometimes I find it difficult to associate the blends from one company to Aroma Tools names. Please add the chemical wheel that associates the similar type of oils for reference. Its my go to for oils first.

We do not current offer a chemical wheel, but we do offer doTERRA Blends/Generic Names Comparison Bookmarks (item # 1159) that matches generic blend names in the Modern Essentials and Modern Essentials Handbook with corresponding dōTERRA® essential oil blends.

The book is wonderful but was very disappointed that it did not have the index tab set with it. All the previous versions had the tabs which are very helpful

Overall I thought the book was good but I would like to see a couple of tweaks. I think there are to many redirections in the index, it is time-consuming and confusing. Also, I think it would be helpful if you included the pronunciations of the oils. (Posted on 11/28/2017)
Review by:
This is the second year that you have omitted any information on the Restful Blend Soft Gels. I wish I had said something last year when that product was introduced and omitted from your book. I was truly expecting it to be in this year's edition, but again, it was omitted. I sent an email informing AromaTools, and they told me "Thanks, we'll add it next year."(paraphrase) Makes me kind of frustrated that I didn't send an email last year when I first noticed it missing.
