Love the new edition of Essential Life.
I used my order for MetaPwr order insentives. My girls love them.
It is the best oil reference guide!
Filled with so much new information.
I love the new book, but it doesn’t have the new Hope blend, it has the old one, VERY disappointing! And it would be really nice if it would include the LTO oils, like Yellow Mandarine and Blue Lotus, etc…When I saw it was the same size as last year, and no bigger, although the price was much higher, I knew there was missing information. I haven’t had time to thoroughly go through the book yet, so I’m not sure what else is missing. But overall, I love this book and it’s explanations and graphics.
We are so happy to hear that you are loving the new edition and we greatly appreciate your feedback. We did not get any information about the hope blend being updated so we did not know to make that change. We will definitely be fixing that in the new edition. The amount of research, time and effort that goes into creating the content for this book, we have always left out the LTO oils as they usually are not available for long. As you may know we have had some quality problems with our previous printer as well as the ongoing troubles with sourcing paper. With these issues in mind we had to find an alternate printer that we feel confident in with the quality and supply of materials to keep the Essential Life book in stock. We know it is hard to see the book price increase but we want to assure you that the quality of the book and quality of the content is worth every penny. Thank you again for your feedback. We greatly appreciate you and your support.
I must agree with Sherry who reviewed about 10 days ago. I do love The Essential Life since the first edition but the most frustrating thing about it is not only the size of the typeface which I can appreciate given the enormous content (all good) but also the terribly hard to read colors chosen for background and typeface. I know the aim is to make a visually appealing book but the lack of contrast makes for so much unnecessary eye-strain and like Sherry said, so many, many pages are completely unreadable unless I get out the magnifying glass. Grandparent-aged people make up a huge population of doTERRA oilers and I am disappointed that publishers do not recognize the #1 importance of readability for their entire audience. Also, the digital version is NOT a viable alternative! I don't want to be on a tiny screen! More of the same! Thank you for listening and passing this along for the 2023 edition.
We are sorry to hear you are not satisfied. We have forwarded your feedback onto our management and the publishing company and we are thankful for your feedback so we can improve this product in the future. Thank you again!
