Go Back to Your Peace and Calm

Do you remember that woodsy smell from your campsite?

The ratio and species of trees in this essential oil was thoughtfully crafted to mimic the forest composition of what you would typically find growing in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA).

If you have ever been to the BWCA you may have noticed that the lakes are often lined with northern white cedar trees.

I made sure to put a good dose of cedar essential oil in each bottle to capture that calming smell.

Throw in some pine, spruce, and fir and you are right where you need to be.

Just for you;)

(Did you hear the loon?)



Northern White Cedar (Thuja occidentalis)
Balsam Fir (Abies balsamea)
Jack Pine (Pinus banksiana)
Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus)
Norway Pine (Pinus resinosa)
Black Spruce (Picea mariana)
White Spruce (Picea glauca)

100% PURE Undiluted Essential Oil


Volume: 10 ml
Drops per bottle: ~250

How the essential oil was made:

Through a process called steam distillation.

Hot steam is forced through needles and branches, thereby pulling out aromatic compounds from the plant into a collecting tube, where the steam is cooled and condensed back into a liquid form of essential oil.

What you'll receive:

A grounding experience! Your cedar essential oil will be in a clear glass bottle with a slow-release vertical dropper.

The bottle will be in a custom aluminum carry-tube to keep it safe from breaks and to eliminate exposure to UV, keeping your essential oil fresher longer.


General Use:

The most common use is for aromatics. Diffuse in your essential oil ultrasonic diffuser of choice. Start with 5 drops of essential oil per 100 ml of water and adjust up or down from there.

Google "essential oil diffuser" and you will get a ton of options, including on Amazon, for under $30. 

If using topically, dilute with a carrier oil such as jojoba, argan, sweet almond, or coconut. A good starting point is 12 drops per 10 ml ( 4% solution).

Use Around Pets:

Cats are especially sensitive to essential oils and you should always be cautious if you use near pets. Most resources I have seen say you can diffuse low doses of essential oil as long as your pet can leave a well-ventilated space.

Consult with your veterinarian if you have concerns.


Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas

Smelled just like I had hoped!

I searched for, and immediately ordered, an essential oil blend that would take me back to hikes on Minnesota's North Shore - Lake Superior. I was thrilled to find someone local who seemed to do a good job of compiling the right scents and he nailed it. Now I can put these in my diffuser, close my eyes, and transport myself back. Thank you for creating these, please never stop! :)

Hey Ali! That is so awesome. I love that this blend brings you back to the North Shore. I agree, it truely is an amazing place. Thank you for the review. I promise I won't stop! ;) - Forester John ↟

I live for being outside

I am no camper, but I love to sit in our screened porch which borders the woods. This oil in my new diffuser allows me bring the smells inside. I will order more

Hi Pamela! Great to hear your are enjoying these forest scents inside. Your screened porch sounds amazing too! - Forester John ↟

Sidney F.
Genuinely impressive

Honestly pretty wild how accurately this captures the scent of being in a conifer forest. It’s awesome and I love using it in my diffuser

Thanks Sidney! I am so happy you like it! This blend has 7 different conifer trees in it which make the forest scent deep, crisp and satisfiying :) - Forester John ↟

Love Love Love

Reminds me of camping trips growing up. Waking up in a dense forest with moisture in the air. Somehow that scent has been transported through time, bottled and shipped to me. An absolute delight, I've been enjoying it for a year now and look forward to reupping my stock as I frequently use it for just me and when I have guests over. We ALL love it.

Hello Katie! I am thrilled you all love the scent and are reliving those memories. What a place to be :) Thank you! - Forester John ↟

Jan B.
Beautiful item.

This was a gift for my niece after her first trip to the BWCA. It came very carefully packaged, which I appreciated since I was sending it to her. She loves it! Thanks so much!

You are welcome Jan! Glad the gift was a hit. Thank you! - Forester John ↟

Office coworkers all stop in my office

When I first started working in the office, all my coworkers stopped by to smell the great outdoors and everyone wanted to know what smelled so good! Had a chance to tell them about the oils and the research that shows ( from the book THE NATURE FIX) that the smell of certain trees helped lower blood pressure and increase killer T cells…. That’s a win in my book! Plus, I feel like I’m in the forest instead of my sad little box of an office

Hi Anthony. Thank you for the nice review! I am glad these help you feel like you in the forest while in the office. The Nature Fix is a great book! - Forester John ↟
