Convenient Resources!

This essential oil app is wonderful! I love having the most up-to-date info accessible anywhere I have internet or cell service! I use oils on a daily basis. I love the textbook, the spiral book, and the many other resources from associated with the Essential Life. But my favourite things are that I don’t have to lug a book around, I can easily share solutions and uses, I know it will be automatically updated as new research is done and oils added, I don’t have to remember to pack one more thing when traveling, and I can save solutions. I have shared this with so many people because it’s so simple! And the price is remarkable for the amount of info and support I get!

I was so happy when I saw how beautiful and simple this app is! I had the previous version of this app and there was almost no information in the app. I paid $6 to get premium content and it was lacking a great deal of information. I have the fourth edition of the book and I don’t plan on getting the fifth edition anytime soon, so I am very glad that this is available to us at an affordable price! The only thing I would to further improve the app is to add a “Basic overview on how to use oils” within the app. I have a very supportive upline, but I didn’t get an app like this or the “essential life” book until about a year after I joined. I know they might not want to make it too dense, but I see the need of adding a section for beginners. Some people might want to remain paperless, so that is another thing to consider. Overall: GREAT APP!

Essential life is awesome!!!

Love this app and very easy to use! I find that I get so lost (lost meaning: there is so much good information) in the app that I lose track of time. It’s very educative. There are tons of recipes and Remedies to many problems. The information I am most interested in is Diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, Anxiety, Sleep, PTSD, weight loss, curbing your appetite, and stress...and that is just some of topics you can read about. The only thing I wish there was an area to list what essential oils you have in your closet at home, to keep track of and know when you are running low, like other paid apps have. Other than that O love love love this app.
