The One Breath at a Thyme team has created a health and wellness community, working to empower individuals and families to make positive, health-focused changes in their lives. Although we work with a base of plant-based, toxin-free products, our goal is to help our members get out of the constant cycle of sickness and reactive practices, instead being able to focus on well-being and preventative measures.
As a mom of twins, I was terrified about the amount of chemical-based products that were around me. As soon as I started eliminating them and replacing them with toxin-free options, we saw immediate positive changes in our health- fewer mood changes, drastic reductions in tension headaches, and the confidence in my post-baby body.

Gold Leader with Young Living
With a medically fragile toddler that spent 10 months in the hospital, I wanted toxin-free solutions to transform our personal care and household products, as well as find ways to support ourselves through self care. After switching to Young Living, we began to see all of the health and wellness benefits essential oil and essential oil infused products provided! Our daughter has stayed out of the hospital during the winter, we are happier overall due to using essential oils in combination with self-care, and now I am an advocate to assist others in doing the same!
Silver Leader with Young Living
I am a full-time working mom of 2 awesome kiddos (with a third on the way), married to my high school sweetheart. I started with Young Living in 2015 after hearing so many great things about essential oils and, in particular, Young Living. After months of research, asking questions, attending classes, and sampling oils, I decided to take the plunge and become a Young Living member. My favorite oils are Lavender and Thieves (though it’s hard to choose just a few), and I have also switched out nearly all of my home and beauty products for items from Young Living (my favorite is the Sandalwood Moisturizing Cream which keeps my face hydrated without feeling greasy or heavy). I love trying new products and learning about Young Living and Essential Oils- I'd love to help get you started on your oily journey, too!
Executive Leader with Young Living
As a new mom of twins, I began to realize there were products I shouldn't use while breastfeeding. This idea made me really think, "If product X isn't safe while breastfeeding, is it really safe while not?" With this thought process in mind, I joined Young Living in May 2015 and haven't looked back. I have oil-infused health and wellness products that I feel confident about using on and around myself and my family. Our family loves the Thieves Household Cleaner and I love that my twin toddlers can help clean, too!

How often have you just felt stuck? The world is moving all around you, but you feel like you just aren’t going anywhere. So many of us go through life and have things that hold us back from achieving what we feel we are meant to do. Small or big challenges - long-standing or more recent feelings. If it keeps us from our true purpose, then we must work to tear them down.
Through a series of deep breathing, meditation, visualization, and aromatherapy, a certified practitioner will guide you to help break through their mental blocks and work towards your goals. The technique was developed by Dr. Benjamin Perkus, a Clinical Psychologist for 20 years. He created AFT based upon his 15 years of integrating essential oils with traditional and energy psychology techniques. He has written a book using the Aroma Freedom Technique.
AFT is a process of 12 Specific Awareness Steps that leads to powerful and profound changes. It helps to release negative thoughts and beliefs. AFT helps you get from where you are now to where you desire to be. It also can help by clearing a pattern related to your work, relationships, children, habits, parenting, etc.
It is recommended that your first AFT clearing be led by someone certified in the technique, but then you can follow the steps on your own as needed.
Initial Meeting & Clearing:
- Individual: $45
- Group (3-9): $35/person
- Group (10+): $25/person
Subsequent Clearings: $35/person

Utilizing iTovi body scan technology, we are able to match the frequencies of your body to generate a personal wellness evaluation.
- First time free for all OBAAT Members
- Free continuing scans for OBAAT Members enrolled in Essential Rewards
- $15 for non-members
Every biological or non-biological thing has a unique energy signature that vibrates at certain frequencies. A frequency is simply the number of times a wave repeats itself within a second, called an oscillation. iTOVi has measured and recorded each unique frequency as it relates to biopoints and the vitamins, minerals and oils of each product company. Through the electrodes on the iTOVi scanner, these frequencies are sent to the body, inducing a measurable response from the body.
During the scan there are 273 biopoints that are introduced to the body. iTOVi passes small electrical currents through the skin to measure the skins resistance. These unique frequencies are sent to the body through the iTOVi scanner. Each biopoint and supplement has a natural energy frequency, which is easily recognized by the body. The passing of frequencies then induces a measurable response from the body.
THE BODY’S RESPONSE
Bioimpedance relies on the body’s autonomic nervous system in order to elicit reactions. The autonomic nervous system is the body’s central command system, connected to every other part of the body and can, therefore, be relied upon to give us reactionary results. There are lots of ways to measure those results (i.e. blood pressure, blood flow, skin or body temperature, breathing patterns, eye dilation, sweat glands/skin moisture, etc.) One particular way to measure the reaction is the tissue will become more or less resistant to electrical current flow. Changes in temperature can also help us understand how the body reacted. During an iTOVi scan hundreds of frequencies are sent to the body, one at a time. The body has a unique reaction to each of these frequencies. As the body reacts to the electrical current flow, iTOVi measures these reactions.
The way iTOVi calculates the body’s reaction is highly accurate. It uses a complex algorithm to organize the data from the reactions. An algorithm is simply a set of mathematical equations. This process is often referred to as the translation process. The iTOVi algorithm translates what your body is communicating to you. While running one scan, the iTOVi scanner is actually running the algorithm several times to find the body’s true response.
As the iTOVi scan runs, your body will naturally react to these foreign frequencies and the scanner will record these changes, identifying them as unresolved biopoints. Biopoints are simply parts of the body, such as organs, vertebrae, or other biological systems. If a recorded frequency falls outside a predetermined range, it is classified as “unresolved”. Please note, a high number of unresolved biopoints is not an indication of poor health.
As the scan ends, the number of unresolved biopoints are recorded, analyzed, and compiled into a personalized iTOVi report. Based on the information gathered during each session, the iTOVi App will recommend the oils or supplements to which your body had the best reactionary response. These recommendations are presented in your report, ordering each product by the number of unresolved biopoints. Using the recommended oil or supplement will then help reduce that frequency to fall within that particular range, bringing your body and its frequencies back to its optimal state.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I SCAN?
Those looking for supplement recommendations should scan once every 2-4 weeks. This gives users the opportunity to experience the maximum benefits from the products the scanner recommended. Once the user has taken the supplements for the recommended 2-4 week period, a follow-up scan can be conducted for an updated product recommendation report.
Some iTOVi customers like to incorporate a different oil each day, or an “oil of the day”. Users that do this may choose to scan more frequently to learn which oils are most beneficial at that specific time. iTOVi suggests individuals that fall under this category scan every 3-4 days. However, also iTOVi suggests that users incorporate the product recommendations for a longer period to see maximum benefits.
The iTOVi scanner is highly accurate at measuring and displaying reactions from your body. iTOVi’s algorithm follows frequency patterns it sees and takes an overall wellness snapshot at the time of the scan. The scanner determines which products from your company are best connected to those frequency patterns.
iTOVi measures the reactionary portion of the body, which changes at surprisingly quick speeds. Once the pattern from the scan is captured, the scanner makes intelligent, and personalized, product recommendations.
If you run a repeat scan within a short period of time, the technology takes into account your previous scans and recommendations. This is very important. As the scanner gathers more information about your body’s responses, the more intuitive the results become. Over time, past information influences the scan less and less, allowing the recommendations to be impacted by your current needs.
Our foundation has always been education, and that will always be our primary goal.
As a team, we teach weekly in-person and online classes that can focus on the following:
- common products to avoid
- babies and children
- household and personal care
- mental health
Time wasted is money wasted. With the influx of “green” options at the stores and online, it is increasingly difficult to know which brands to trust. After years of research, we can honestly say that we trust one company as an all-encompassing lifestyle brand: Young Living.
More than just essential oils (though they are the leaders with over 23 years experience), Young Living is a wellness company with products for personal care, home, fitness, cleaning, and supplements.
While Young Living has over 500 products in its current catalog, we also have done research on other brands and varieties, so we take the guesswork out of the other options available for you.
I will forever be grateful for Dory who invited me to learn more about Young Living. I’m a mom to a medically fragile toddler and oils were such a blessing to our health and mental wellness during such a crazy time in our lives. 2.5 years later we are consistently healthy and have learned SO much about wellness! These little bottles have been incredible and I’m so glad I’be had Dory to teach me all she knows!
When I first started using oils, I wasn't sure what the heck I was doing! My husband made fun of me and said I was a witch doctor mixing up stuff. The more I learned about their uses, the more he loved them and now asks for specific things. This team has played a huge part of our healthy living journey in our home. We are so lucky to have the knowledge in this group, because a lot of other teams don't have that. Using essentials oils and clean products is a lifestyle and it helps to have a group to learn from!
I have seen so many ways to get away from harmful chemicals and use the oils to enhance my living space in ways I just hadn't imagined. The classes with Dory and the awesome retreat we had in our location left me really excited as a "new" user of essential oils. I grab it now for getting relaxed, and having a better quality of sleep, and so many other uses. Love the many ways Kristen has shared with using Thieves to have a clean home without the awful chemicals. I'm so much more focused about "clean" living to get the chemicals out of my cabinets! Thanks so much to my One Breath at a Thyme team!
