It’s no coincidence that 2018 is a banner year for both AromaTools® and dōTERRA®. Our signature book, Modern Essentials®, has been the reference guide of choice for Wellness Advocates since dōTERRA®began 10 years ago. The new Modern Essentials® 10th edition once again features dōTERRA® brand names for all 2018 oils, blends, supplements, and personal care and spa lines.
Modern Essentials® and Modern Essentials® Handbook: Similarities and Differences
The full title of our hardbound reference is Modern Essentials®: The Complete Guide to the Therapeutic Use of Essential Oils.You really won’t find a more complete treatment of what essential oils are and how to use them—not only for supporting health but also for enhancing daily life.
Last year, AromaTools® also introduced the Modern Essentials® Handbook: The Premier Introductory Guide to Essential Oils.This compact, softbound guide is carefully condensed for widespread use among new oil users. Unique to the handbook is the most visually engaging and easily understood introduction to essential oils anywhere. It is ideal for both independent learning and group teaching. The handbook’s smaller size and lower price are especially helpful to Wellness Advocates expanding their businesses worldwide.
What’s New and Improved in the 10th Edition Books?
Of course, our biggest news is the inclusion of dōTERRA® brand names in both reference books—and in all Modern Essentials® publications. This makes using, learning, and teaching about the oils all the easier.
Equally important, we’ve integrated all the new 2018 products—single oils, blends, supplements, and personal care products—into our publications. When you look up new oils, you’ll get researched information on common uses and effective application methods. And, when you go to “My Usage Guide” for health conditions, you’ll also find new oils recommended there. Important: “My Usage Guide” is complete, not condensed, in the Modern Essentials® Handbook.
We’ve expanded “My Usage Guide” in both books with essential oil support for these contemporary health issues: chilblains (lupus), GERD (acid reflux), Lyme disease, and opioid and technology addictions.
Finally, we’ve added some scientific notes back into the Modern Essentials® Handbook (even beginners wanted to be science-savvy). Chemical constituents of single oils are at the end of that section. And research citations are now included with conditions in “My Usage Guide.”
