Wonderful scents that are fresh, clean, and just the. right blend. I can close my eyes and return to the forest in Acadia or the Smokeys. I will be ordering again.
These oils are exactly what I am looking for! They let me experience the forest again here at home. This is my second purchase from Forester John and it does not disappoint. I am a fan for life and will purchase more for sure. Thank you for offering such care in everything from the packaging, the delivery, the bottle design, and of course the scent!
I bought this for my husband, who is a fellow Bog Buddy. He's usually not too interested in essential oils, but after smelling the Sax-Zim Bog blend, he was absolutely delighted! Particularly during a Minnesota winter, it's nice to have a fresh pine scent in the air that is not an overly processed candle. I also appreciated the packaging - 100% biodegradable yet protected the product perfectly. Thanks for your work and passion!
I was pleasantly surprised! I’ve been trying to find an essential oil that smells like a Christmas tree for several years- this one does not smell artificial at all!! Customer service is absolutely amazing too!!! I texted Forester John with a few questions prior to purchase and he got back to me immediately! I was very impressed! I highly recommend this company!!
I have 75 Christmas `s under my belt. Being from New England, and spending thousands of hours in the woods, camping, photographing and Kayaking, I know what a Balsam tree should smell like. The scent of the Balsam is unmistakable. To most of us, that small takes you back to another time, a better time. A friend in New Hampshire told me about your oils and she raved about the Christmas Tree Lot oil. I went ahead and purchased it. The little bottle arrived today. When I opened the cap and took a sniff, the smell was that of cut branches and bark but not even a hint of the sweet balsam fir I was expecting. I heated up a small amount of water in a clean diffuser and added two drops of the oil. After a short time, the smell of fresh cut branches and other scents came through. I did not find them pleasant. On many occasions I have taken the resin from the blisters of a balsam and used it for a topical balm for minor scrapes and cuts. It also makes an excellent fire starter for a tinder bundle with a wonderful smell. Like you I have collected many types of resin from may conifers in New England. I heat them in a diffuser for amazing smells.
I will say this about the oil you offer. It does smell as you say it does. If people are looking for the raw smell of cut pine
branches , bark and other parts of the tree, then this is what they will get. In that respect the oil is pure but not for me.
I ordered Christmas Tree Lot for myself and a family member. For those of us who don't decorate a real tree, this is a game changer! Scents from other companies smell fake and I can't tolerate them, throwing them in the trash almost as quickly as I buy them. Using these essential oils brings the outdoors inside! Love this! :)
