Our long-awaited app upgrade is here—and worth the wait! Of course, we’ve added all the new 2018 essential oils, but there’s so much more. In fact, Modern Essentials® Plus is a complete app makeover for an amazing user experience. Here’s an introduction to just a few of the fabulous features and how to use them!
First, your options. You can simply download the “Basic” option for a one-time fee. Or, you can add a “Full” subscription at a low monthly or yearly rate for added features and updates.
Let’s look at some features that both “Basic” and “Full” share.
dōTERRA® Brand Names (They’re back!)
- Basic: An easy editing feature changes generic product names to brand names.
- On the home screen, click on the blend icon on the right side of the content wheel.
- Then, for example, pick the Anti-Aging Blend at the top of Essential Blends (pictured upper left.) Or, use the vertical alphabet strip at the far right to choose another generic blend name.
- Tap-and-hold on the generic name itself until a window appears. (Don’t check the box.)
- Tap once to the right of the generic name, and then backspace to erase it.
- Now type in the dōTERRA® brand name. Again, for example, change Anti-Aging Blend to Immortelle (shown above left).
- The new brand name will appear in the list and everywhere else throughout the app!
- Your Essential Blends list will re-alphabetize to reflect the new brand names (pictured upper right).
- Full: All generic names are changed to dōTERRA® brand names automatically.
(Because of government regulations, this feature in English is available only in the U.S., U.K., and Canada. “Full” subscriptions in other English-speaking countries—including Australia—must use the “Basic” tap-and-hold editing feature.)
