We recently discovered an amazing product that we at the Root and Petal are excited to share with you. This little device takes all the guesswork out of deciding what oils you should use in your blends for you, your family, and friends. Within a minute or two this little gizmo sends a complete and detailed report to your phone of someone’s oil needs which you can use to make very informed decisions about oil selection and their relative proportions. After years of reading books and consulting manuals about what oil is good for this or that this little guy almost makes blend creation a little too easy! What is this thing I speak of?
The iTOVi scanner!
We had heard of iTOVi a little while ago, but it wasn’t until recently we took the plunge and tried one out. In all honesty I was a little, I don’t want to say skeptical… let’s go with cautiously optimistic about their performance. I mean how could some little scanner with two electrodes actually read someone’s body completely from just contact with the skin? It just seemed a little too good to be true.
I was wrong. Way wrong.
When we received the iTOVi we had been going through a somewhat hectic period. Home repairs were happening, work was piling up, the schedule was booked solid for days with no breaks, friends were coming to stay with us from out of town with no time to clean the house… Life stuff. Anyway we were too excited about trying this thing out to not do a quick scan of ourselves so we took it out and downloaded the app that goes with it. Within a few minutes our phones were synced and we were up and scanning. What did our reports say? Grounding blends all around with other oils to support peace and focus with citrus oils added in to support natural energy.
Ok. Lucky guess right? We scanned our son who is a happy playful and very chill toddler. He surely wouldn’t need grounding oils or peace blends. He scanned pretty high for some immune system support. Hmmm… He wasn’t sick and didn’t seem to feel off at all. We didn’t really take his report too seriously until he woke up with the sniffles the next day. The iTOVi saw something brewing in his immune system before he exhibited any symptoms. After picking our jaws up off the floor we started him on a blend based on his scan immediately.
Time and time again we have seen the iTOVi make incredibly accurate readings of people’s needs both physically and emotionally. It has made recommendations for blends to help physical pain to people dealing with injuries, sleep assisting blends for new parents (good luck there!), digestive blends for people who had those issues, headache relief for people with headaches, emotional wellness blends for people dealing with past emotional trauma that had been recently rehashed, and many others.
So how does it work?
You mean besides voodoo? Just kidding. When you are actually running a scan a video plays on your phone in the app that gives you a brief rundown of what it is actually doing. It’s pretty fascinating. It has to do with electrical frequencies and bioimpedance. I’m certainly no scientist so I’ll let you look it up yourself. You can find all that information here.
I understand. All we can tell you is what we’ve seen it do first hand. We’ve used it on friends who are oilers, friends who aren’t, family members, and even our dog — that didn’t work too well. I don’t think he’s a fan of sitting still enough to complete a scan. Oh well. Had to try… The point is we’ve seen it work. It does exactly what it says it does and it does it well. It’s actually a lot of fun to scan yourself and guess what you think it results will be. Sometimes it’s very surprising.
I can go on and on about how much we’ve loved using our iTOVi, but at the end of the day you have to try this out for yourself. Step into the new era of modern aromatherapy and essential oils. Get your blends right every time for you and those close to you. Make better and more informed decisions about your family’s wellness with iTOVi.
