Frequently Asked Questions:

Where do I go to purchase the app?

You can purchase the app in the Apple iTunes Store or in the Google Play Store.

If I already purchased the app, do I need to purchase the update?

No. The update is free for all current app users.

Do I need internet access to use the app?

You will need internet access when you download the app and to access the AromaTools™ online store, but most of the app works well without internet access..

Will this app work on a kindle, nook, or windows phone?

No. Currently, we do not have versions for the Kindle, Nook, or Windows phone.

Does the app contain all the information in Modern Essentials™?

No, the app does not contain all the information in Modern Essentials™. Modern Essentials™ has 6 sections: Science and Application, Single Oils, Oil Blends, Essential Oil-Inspired Wellness Supplements, Essential Living and Spa, and the Personal Usage Guide. Out of these sections, the app has a condensed part of the application section (no science information), the full Single Oils section, the full Oil Blends section, and most of the Personal Usage Guide section (called Conditions in the app). The app is designed to accompany the book as a quick on-the-go reference, but we still recommend having the book at home to reference the rest of the information.

Can I get this app in a different language

We currently offer a Spanish version of the previous update of the English app. You can purchase it in the Apple iTunes Store or the Google Play Store.

Why are the blend names generic?

An essential oil company’s blend names are often copyrighted, so we chose to use generic names in the Modern Essentials™ book and app instead. We have created the ability to alter the names of the blends by tapping and holding the blend name. A keyboard should pop up so you can change the name to whatever you desire.

Will I need to purchase the app twice if I want to have the app on my android device and my apple device?

Yes. Because Android and Apple use different operating systems, you will need to purchase the app that correlates with each operating system. If you had an iPhone and an iPad and used the same Apple ID (or had an Apple Family account) for both, you could just download the original app purchase on both since they use the same operating system.

  1. I bought a new Apple IPad, do I have to purchase the modern essentials app for my new iPad? How do I load app to my new IPad?

    • Hi Sally,
      If you have already purchased the Modern Essentials App through the Apple store previously, you should not have to purchase it again as long as you are logged in through the same Apple account. You should be able to log into the Apple store, search the app, and simply select download without having to make a payment. However, if you are using a new Apple ID, or you purchased the app through the Google Play store, you will have to purchase the app again before you can download it.
      If you have any other questions or concerns about this, you can contact our customer service team by calling 1-801-798-7921 or emailing [email protected]. They can answer any other questions you may have.

  2. I bought the app in my Android cell, but I changed cell phone to an IOS. Can I switch the app without me paying again? I no longer will be using the Android.

  3. Is there a blend conversion chart with all the new doterra blends listed? I have one that is old and it shows the blend names in your book along side the doterra blend name. Very handy.

  4. My app has updated, but I cant access the lifestyle section. It says “Cannot load recipes, Internet connection is unavailable, and the requested recipes are not found in local storage” my phone has lots of data and I’ve tried with and without Wifi?

  5. I try to get the app but could not get c. card in before 10:00 pm central time so bummed……
    I hope you will do this again… I really won’t to get this app … just saw it but was not fast enough 🙁

    • We chose not to include trademarked names in this app. However, you can easily change the generic names to a brand name of your choice by tapping and holding the name and then typing a new name overtop of it.

    • This app is only compatible with iOS and Android mobile devices. Please make sure that you are downloading the correct app version to the correct operating system. If you have further trouble, feel free to contact customer service at 1-866-728-0070.

  6. Thanks for the update to this great app! I’ve noticed that in IOS the new oils do not come up when you use the Search function. I can find them in the lists of oils, but prefer the Search function for quicker access.

  7. Yeah! This app is awesome! And when I read the FAQ below I was thrilled! However after downloading and playing with it, I cannot get it to stick. I painstakingly entered each doTERRA blend name and then they disappeared! Help!

    • If you do not have automatic updates selected in your settings, you can either go to the Apple App Store (for Apple devices) or the Google Play Store (for Android devices) and select the “Updates” tab to manually update the app.

        • I’ll check with our app developers. One thing I think may cause this issue is if you have limited space on your device, so you an try to see if it is fixed if you free up a little more space.
