Ref Guide for Essential Oils App Reviews

Update please

I love this app & use it a lot. But it would be of better use if you would please update with all the new oils this past year...

Info Never Updated

I like this app, and I use it often. That said, there are tons of spelling/grammar/design errors that make it unprofessional. There are also tons of YL products and new oils that aren’t on this app. It’s a HUGE BUMMER especially since I spent $7 for it! They haven’t updated in 2 years, and I they really should. I will not be recommending this to anyone until they do.

Update needed

Love this app is great to find a cure for almost anything. But they haven’t updated the new oils that has come along. Please update!!!!

The Best EO Guide App out there!

I never spend money on apps. However, this app is worth every penny! It is so handy and informative for Essential Oils. I love being able to quickly locate some oils to suggest to friends and family to use. The Application section is so informative and I have learned so much about the Flex Points and applying certain places on your feet, hands, even your ears to help with specific situations. My friends and family are always amazed at how much info I can pull up so quickly for them. Of course, I do recommend they purchase the app for themselves and most do. You definitely need this app!

Please update!!!

Best app but needs to be updated!!!

Great for a beginner

This app is excellent for the new oil groupie. You can find an oil or blend for just about anything and everything, things you would have never thought of. I have 2 complaints that are keeping me from giving it 5/5 stars. 1). I have issues saving “blends” to my notes. Originally it was allowing me to 4 but now only 2 and it occurred in a matter of 2 mins. And 2). I wish there was a separate section for recipes - for rolling and diffusing! Other than that it’s a great app and I would recommend it to the new user.


Will there be an update to with new blends? Last update was a year ago.


I would love to give this app 5 stars but it so badly needs an update. Young Living has come out with so many new oils (and blends) that this needs to be updated. BADLY

Amazing app but needs update

Love this but please update to reflect new oils

My go to app but needs updating!

I love this app as it is my go to for YL essential oils but it needs to be updated with newer oils.

Love it BUT time for an update!

Full of great info but needs to be updated!


This company has stolen information from Young Living without their permission. Shame on you! Delete!

Reference guide for essential oils

Thorough east to use

Love it! But time to update

I absolutely love this app! I purchase it as a “thank you” gift to my new distributors for them to have at ease access to information when they need it, wherever they are! Because it is YL specific, this app makes sense for me and my downline versus other apps out there. The extensive information provided is an amazing resource, especially for the rookie oilers out there! It has been my EO “bible.” Is it perfect? No. It is definitely time for an update. The company is continually adding, removing, and reformulating their singles and blends according to specific crop availability. Kudos to YL for leading the way in the EO industry and bringing quality essentials oils into our homes. Since the app developers are marketing an app specific to one company, there is a need to update based on company availability. Again, still your best app option for an EO reference guide.

No longer on my phone

Mine is gone off my iphone ??

Need updates!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The app hasn’t been updated since 2016 and I just spoke with Abundant Health and they said they’re working on it but probably not for another six months I can’t recommend this to my new members if it’s not gonna be up-to-date with the recent oils hire more people get the job done!

Update the app

Seriously the app is $6.99 and it isn’t even formatted for the iPhone X screen I want a refund.

I love this app - needs updating tho

I have to say, for it being a free app, it is very useful for a quick go-to reference when I need to know what oil/oil’s are best for a certain condition. It would be lovely if it could be up dated, however!

Please update

There has not been an update in a year! It seems since you came out with a 2018 hard copy reference book, you can surely transfer that information to the app.

Great app

It’s my go to for most ailments. Love all the info. Only thing I would improve is updating with newer oils coming out. Other than that i love it.

When will there be an update?

I have used this app multiple times daily not two years now but it is badly in need of an update of info!!! When will this happen???

Superior App

This is a great app for people looking to understand the science of essential oils. I have even used it to create my own blends with great success. Offers twice what other apps offer. Even has a shop to purchase containers, oils, bottles, and equipment of great quality at a cheaper price than I have ever found in any store. If you are serious about essential oils this is the only app you will ever need.

My go to ap

I have reference this app more than my reference books. It easy to use, has pleasant graphic but, it drives deep into each oil. Gives, the use, the chemical constituents, the folklore and much more. Suitable for bother newbies and experienced oilers. I love the extras it offers too much to list. $6.99 might seem pricey, but I found its paid for itself 10x, everyone a customer calls with a question the answer is right there at my fingertips....and that confidence builder is priceless!

Please update already?!

I would give more stars if the issues being addressed in most previous reviews were being answered. I have 2 other ref guide apps for my EO’s that were free and they both allow me to add the oils I have to a “My Oils” list for easy reference. Seems for $6.99, this app should provide the same and do one better...allow a “shopping list” where we can list the oils we have and are running low on so we can place our next order with ease. Finally...I’d pay a few dollars more, if you could add to a “My Oils” list a function where the app spits out what ailments we can treat with the oils we have and what blends we can make with the oils we have. I know that last one is wishful thinking...but please provide a better service than the free apps! Finally....the oils need some updating, especially the blends section. Thanks for hearing my review!

Great App, but needs updating

This app is my go-to for looking up helpful info for my YL essential oils. I’ve noticed that updates to some of the blends have not happened. Would love to see an update. This is the app that I suggest to everyone.

Decent, but in need of an update!

I have used this app for several years, along with several others. I find it user-friendly, however, it is in some serious need of updates. The blends, and other product ingredients are not updated when a product becomes reformulated, making the information a bit misleading. Abundant Health, you can do better!

Notes function is disappointing

I have added notes to 15 of the oils but only 8 appear when I click on the notes oils tab. I was hoping this app would help me track my use but it seems to be more work than what it is worth.


Will there be an update soon with the new products released for 2017

Not Helpful

Hard to use. Confusing. When you look up a condition such as acne, you get a list of about 20 oils. TMI. Just give me the best 3-4. They don’t give any direction on best usage, inhale, consume, rub on. Of course there is a section to buy more from them. Not designed to help the user, just to put more money in their pocket for a crappy product. If their app is this bad, I would not trust buying their oils. They are likely as diluted and ineffective as this app is.

Very helpful

I use the app daily. I would love an option to pin/flag the oils I have and also the ability to create a wish list. Another great option would be a place where I can create a daily (morning/noon/night) routine list.

Update needed badly...

I used to love this app, it was hands down the best! Not saying there wasn’t room for improvement because added features are always a plus, but it had the info I really needed readily available, however, the app is no longer working for me, it will not being up any of the topics and only some of the oils now, maybe it’s not compatible with the last iPhone update? Anywho, I can not access info I used to be able to use and I emailed costumer service and never received a reply...☹️

Needs an update

Newer oils need to be added and corrections made. There are 2 listings for myhrr each with a different Latin name, however, when listed by common name, biblical sweet myrhh is shown with both Latin names. Not correct. Please fix.

I like the app, but....

It could use an update with the new oils added.

Pretty good

Pretty good, but it needs to be updated with the new oils that have been put out along with more topics in the personal guide.

Needs updating

Great source. Just needs updated. I use this frequently but have been disappointed that all of the oils are not in it. Most of them are but some that I have been wanting info on are not in it.

Needs updating.

Would really like to see an update with updated products. Great reference for what it has.

Wonderful Reference

I have this book (several editions), and I'm so happy to see it in an app form that will be updated!! I will use this app all the time! Thank you!!!

Please Update!

Please add ALL of the products, not just the oils: personal products, supplements, seedlings line, etc.


Need other brand of oils ... Not just YL

Great app, but much room for improvement

I love this app & use it daily. However, many of the newer oils are not listed, which is rather frustrating. Also, it would be great to have the supplements & personal care items included as well like they are in the hard copy of the Abundant Health Reference Guide. The book has so much more information than the app, but it's quite bulky & not easily transportable. I love having the app on the go, but it needs the newer oils included & more information from the book.


I love this app. I've been using it for years as a quick reference guide for my Young Living essential oils! I recommend this app to everyone!

It's a good generic guide, needs customization

I'm just starting in EO, so it would be nice to have the ability to create a bookmark section or a "my oils" section that allows me to see what the oils I own are for and what recipes I can make with what I have.

Please update this useful tool!!!

Paying for an app that doesn't get updated...

Really great app

Thorough, clear, informative, pretty, easy to use, great suggestions, a place for notes. Highly recommend and worth the money.

What happened?

I love this app and use it all the time, but now all I get is a blank white page.


Love this app and I use it almost daily!!! Just needs to add the supplements and it would be perfect!

Great App

Perfect and quick reference guide for all YL related oils. I love how you can search my single oil, blends and by symptoms.


I like this App but I would like it to have an update setting where you could read in different languages ​​not only English, it is very useful but it would help me more if I had the option of reading in Spanish. I hope you take it into account soon, thank you.

Great app!

Love the app; only suggestion would be to update it more frequently and if we could click on the oils in the guide section and it would take us to the specific information for the specific oil.
