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 ↟

Love Forester John!

These last forever or I'd have placed many more orders over the years - I love the scent profiles of these oils and they're perfect for a piney scent that smells more like a forest than a candle. The Adirondack blend pulls your memory back to NY perfectly with all of the right earthy, mossy, foggy scents of the woods.

Awesome! Thank you for the review. Your description of the smell makes me want to go to the Adirondacks! ↟ぺ↟↟ - 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 ↟

Great scents!!

True high quality scents. I've tried various flavors but all have a positive effect on my quality of sleep. I would recommend this product

Thanks for the review Chris! I am glad it is helping with your sleep :) - Forester John ↟

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 ↟


I am loving the smell of the pine throughout my house, as well as the fantastic emails I receive from Forester John! Keep up the tremendous work!

Hey Amy! Thank you for nice review. Shout out to R Garza! Glad to hear you are lovin' it! - Forester John ↟

I have been looking for the perfect pine oil for a long time and this oil is perfect!
I also love supporting small businesses! Keep up the great work John!

Glad you like this one Lauren! I love the pine scent also. Thank you for the review :) Have a great Spring! - Forester John ↟

Christmas Tree Lot

I loved the smell of this. I live in a small apartment so I cannot have a real Christmas tree and by diffusing this oil throughout my place I felt like I had one. It smells so good.

Awesome! Thanks Charlene! - Forester John ↟

Walking through a Christmas Tree Lot

I am so thrilled to finally find a scent that is exactly what I was looking for. I have tried so many different scents that promise to smell like Christmas trees, but none ever came even close. I was hesitant at first to buy this, but then thought: one last try! And so when the package arrived in the mail, I was so eager and excited to open it up and smell it and diffuse it. To my delight, this was perfect and exactly what I was looking for and hoping to get. It smells so real and natural. Nothing artificial in it. Thank you so much for making the most wonderful scent!!

Great to hear Michelle! You are more than welcome. I am thrilled you came across my Christmas Tree scent and enjoy it. Thank you! - Forester John ↟

Send someone memories

Very cool product, can send your friend the gift of memories via smell. Candles, lotions, etc.

Thanks for the review Donald! - Forester John ↟

Best scent on the market

We wanted to really get the fresh Christmas tree lot smell, and this product delivered! Something we couldn’t do with any other combo using different brands.

Great to hear Ryan! Glad I was able to put this one together and it worked for you. Thanks! - 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 ↟

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 ↟

Great gift!

This was a gift, and the receiver really enjoyed it.

Never disappoints!

I have loved every scent I have purchased from Forester John! As expected, this scent did not disappoint. The smells, the packaging, the bottles. Everything about it is a wonderful experience. Smelling the oil, it is like being brought directly back to the forest. I will be back for this one and for all the other scents as well.

Awesome. Thanks Kevin! Have a great end to your year! - Forester John ↟

Absolutely lovely, couldn't be happier.

These blends are so lovely, I genuinely don't have the words. I want to roll around in them. The only hitch in my particular giddyup was that I had never used a diffuser for oils, and I didn't really know how to do it. Solved easily enough with google, of course. Packaged with care, shipped quickly with excellent communication. Happy happy.

I will definitely be buying more in the future. Thanks for a Nice Thing!

You are more than welcome Catherine! I am so happy you got this to work in a diffuser and are enjoying it :) - Forester John ↟

Smells like a real Christmas tree!!!

We decided to go with an artificial tree this year and I was missing the smell of a real tree. I was not disappointed when I opened up the bottle! I put some drops on real pine cones and placed them throughout the tree. You would never know it’s not a real tree! The scent is invoking memories of getting our Christmas tree and bringing it in the house.

Great to hear this helped make your Christmas tree smell real. Thanks Sharon! - Forester John ↟

Thank you!

My first hike in the Smokies was a wonderful experience I loved the scenery, the smells, and being in nature. It opened a whole new world. My oil from Forester John takes me back to my great love for the Smokies.

Rebecca, I am very happy this scent takes you back to the Smokies! Thank you for the review! - Forester John ↟

Sleeping Bear

I opened the bottle and took a whiff. The scent was delightful and reminiscent of summers along the shore of Lake Michigan and the forests nearby.

Hi Linda. Thanks for the nice review! - Forester John ↟

Into the woods

These are amazing oils!
I closed my eyes and was transported right to the forest with this wonderful scent!
So happy I found Forester John's Oils, told some of my friends who love the woods and they are hooked as well!
Thank You for letting me be in the forest whenever I want! Great presentation in the packaging as well!

I am glad you found me and I could make this for you and your friends :) - Forester John ↟

Fantastic oils!

I was looking for something that would emulate my mom’s Adirondack balsam pillows that she use to have at our farm house when I was a kid. When I received the Adirondack oils I was so excited I instantly put them into our diffuser and the scent nostalgically brought me back to when I was a kid. I completely recommend!! Thanks so much Forester John!!

You are welcome. Wow, balsam pillows! Thank YOU! - Forester John ↟

Relax, De-Stress, Unwind

Combine this aroma of these forest oils with a bubble bath, candles and soothing music for an at-home spa experience!

These smell exactly like the forest!!
The great smoky mountains national park is my favorite, it has a sweet undertone to it that I love.

Finally, a real Christmas tree scent! Love this oil!

Hey Linda! I am so glad you like it. Thanks! - Forester John ↟

This stuff is awesome!

I ordered this a year or so ago because I read that it was a hot commodity. I had ordered other scents and was very impressed . I KNOW why they keep selling out. This is such an amazing holiday scent! It is very realistic and envelops you like you're walking at a Christmas tree farm. And the hand written note from John himself is an incredibly nice touch. Thank you!

You got it Kathleen! Thank you for taking the time to write this review! - Forester John ↟
