A bit inconvenient/clunky while using
There are three things that I wish were better:
1. I wish I could mark/flag all the oils I have into one list. Something easier to manage than the massive list within the app (which also has benefits).
2. I wish the app had live links. If I'm looking in the guide and it says use Thieves, I wish I could click "Thieves" on that page to jump to the oil info page.
3. Finally I wish the blends had a "common primary uses" section like the single oils do.
While the app has lots of information, the actual interaction with the app is a bit of a bummer for the price.
Made the mistake of downloading a different essential oils reference app in search of this one and it was the worst app I've ever used. This one is so easy to find exactly what you're looking for.
Love but blends need updating
By Home frie
I love this app, remember it is a guide. You still need to do some research and use common sense. I do wish that they would update the blends, many of the oils listed in the blends are not correct, many have been reformulated. This seems like an easy fix. I recommend this all of the time but can't if there is too much mis-info. Will this be happening soon?

Use it all the time. Worth the money!
Love this app and I use it daily!
Love this app! It keeps getting better, with more info being added :) So convenient! Thank you so much!!!
Really intended just for Young Living oils
By From the 80s
I'm sure it's useful if you only use oils from that company, but I was hoping for something not affiliated with any particular company. If you have strong brand loyalty for Young Living, you'll probably like this.
Good info, but room for improvements
I would like to be able to flag the oils that I actually have, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do this. Ideally I'd be able to flag the ones I want too, which would help when I place my next order. Also "have, but running low on" would be nice!
You can make notes on essential oils, but you don't seem to be able to access more than 4 notes from the Single Oils section, and 3 notes from the Blends section. The notes also do not appear in either alphabetical order by oil, nor in the order in which I entered them. And they can't be sorted or reordered.
Not all of the oils are listed (Valor II, for example, is missing) so it's time for the maker to do an update.
And just in case it's not clear from the product description, the blends it lists are all Young Living blends. If you have oils from elsewhere you might find the single oil section helpful, but probably not the blends (unless you want to try mixing your own I guess!)
Bottom line: none of the above would be issues if I didn't find the underlying information helpful. So I'm glad to have the app, but they could do a lot to make it more user friendly.
So quick! So thorough!

I have the big, heavy, spiral-bound Essential Oil Desk Reference, which is great and comprehensive. And did I mention? ...heavy. This app is so quick and easy to use and gives me a lot of the same info, at my fingertips - literally! While I'm out and about... while I'm lying in bed... it's right here! It's definitely one of the best uses of my $6.99 in a long time! I'm recommending it to all my "oily" friends! Thanks SO much!!!
Not enough info Modern Essentials better for your $$
I wish I had found the Modern Essentials Guide App before this one. Although this will tell you an oil you can use, not much more info is given. Modern Essentials will tell you blends, where to apply, or how to diffuse to help with symptoms. Wish there was a way to get a refund for this app because it's really not useful at all.
On The Go Info!
Since purchasing this app nearly two years ago, I don't know of many days that I haven't opened it to use! I love my YL oils, and I love to help friends and family with great information on best uses! This is absolutely worth the cost, and I'm grateful for its ease of use!
I use this app several times a day! It's perfect for looking up a wide variety of ailments and which oils work best. And it also has a list for single oil blends with very detailed descriptions for each one. Also another list for oil blends. This is a must have for any YLEO lover and totally worth the $$
Perfect to learn how to use YLEO
If you have spent the money to buy the best essential oils, then you really need to learn how to use them. This app is a perfect way to learn how to use Young living essential oils. I love the fact that you can share that information with others. Thanks for a great app for keeping it up-to-date.
