Not bad but not worth the price yet


This is a good starter app for people needing to learn about oils but I think they should add a search button to allow you to enter a word and search all the oils for that word. For example, if you look up "jock itch" nothing will come up but if you look at Melaleuca and Helichrysm they are 2 of the top oils to use for jock itch. You would not know this unless you read up on every oil listed. Just a thought this would be so vital in an app like this. There is so much vital information that you could miss without a proper search tool. They allow you to search for the most common uses like "disinfectant" or "whooping cough" but an actual word search would be amazing and would make this expensive app very efficient. Overall at this time I don't think it's worth the asking price. Maybe half of that.

WAY better than a $6.99 app I just bought...


I love this app. and I hope the developers don’t stop working on it. I just purchased a different doTERRA app that is inferior, yet people are no doubt drawn to it because the graphics are sleeker - I could care less about the graphics! This one has tons of info on each oil, including historical info and uses - so interesting! I love the way it tells you what each oil blends well with. Keep adding new oils, (i.e. copaiba, etc.) and add the feature that allows you to keep track of your oils and keep notes on them. Once you do that, this is app will be beyond five stars.

Great app


This is a great reference app, but it desperately needs to be updated! They still haven't loaded up the new products from last year, and now we have a bunch more new oils this year! Would be great to have information on those as well.
I agree, they need to have the search engine allow you to look up things by a word, like Bladder infection, instead of having to look up Lemongrass, because the point is, a person knows what they are dealing with, but not necessarily the oil(s) to use and not all people are familiar with body systems, just saying. That is the point.
