Just a few things to clarify from other reviews. First, every dōTERRA essential oil blend has "the generic" name of the blend ON the bottle, and this is the same name used in this book (as well as the Emotions and Essential Oils book). Someone mentioned not being able to figure out what the cellular complex was. It's DDR Prime.
Second, the REASON that THIS edition has removed ALL dōTERRA references from the text is to comply with FDA laws. This book uses language that, if used with ANY specific brand of EO, would not be FDA compliant. The FDA will shut down any and all references to EO BRAND NAMES that claim to treat, cure, or prevent any disease, illness, injury, malady, sickness or disability. Any BRAND NAME that is MARKETED with claims that it treats, cures, prevents etc has to be labeled a drug and thus be regulated by the FDA. Therefore, to keep this edition FDA compliant, the publisher, AromaTools, removed all references to trade names used by dōTERRA so that it could provide disease specific information. If this book were a dōTERRA brand specific publication, all disease names would have to be omitted, and only claims to support natural structures and functions of the body would be allowed. So which would you prefer: generic blend names that take just a few seconds of time and effort to look up, or generic body functions and structures that are vague and confusing when trying to find the right oils to address specific wellness needs that could take much longer to research and sift through?
And third, I don't know if it was a review on THIS book or the Usage Guide (spiral bound edition), but a reviewer claimed that they rejected the book based on moral grounds, alleging that the founders of dōTERRA had worked for another oil company, defected to start their own, and stole recipes and so on. I would like to address this here. Yes, the founders of dōTERRA worked for another oil company. They left (at different points) because they did not like the direction the founder of the other company was going with his business. They had a different view of what an EO company should be, that did not fit in with their current employer's "vision". So they left. It was some time later, a couple years, before they ever considered forming their own company. So they did. They did not "steal" any recipes or secrets. What they DID do is fund their new company on their own so the COMPANY would be debt free from day one. Why? Because they believed in their vision of what a wellness company should be. If you want to reject an oil company based on moral turpitude, maybe you should look at the founder of the other company and take a look at what LEGAL charges have been leveled against him. Take a look at the things he has done that placed lives in danger. Then talk about rejecting something on moral grounds.
It has beautiful photography and is laid out in a user friendly fashion.
