I've tried various essential oils over the years trying to find the right scents . I can't believe that I haven't come across John's website before , but thank God I finally did . I have fond memories of camping as an adolescent , the sights , the smells , etc ... . As an adult I'am mired in a corporate atmosphere with its attendant anxieties and spend much of the time behind a computer screen which is not conducive to either my mental or physical health .
These oils are FANTASTIC ...THE REAL DEAL ( I got a kick out of the ingredients list on the aluminum containers which merely says , " trees in this bottle " ) . I plan to dilute them as use them as a linin spray ( especially pillows so that when I go to sleep at night can image myself in the REAL WORLD instead of the artificial man - created world that is passed off as reality ) .
I couldn't be more pleased with these scents , and am looking forward to " Christmas Tree Lot " when it becomes available after Thanksgiving . Thanks John
I go to the BWCA every year and one of the things I miss the most in between visits is the sweet smell that is unique to the North Woods. The first whiff of the forest air signals my mind and says “you are home now, relax”. This product is amazing and makes me feel that special feeling.
Thanks Forester John!
A friend told me about Forester John. I appreciated his website and journey. The blends focus on the trees specific to each forest. The aroma is bright, energetic and opening. Given his unique background and approach it will be interesting to see where the blends go - I expect they may adapt given forest fires, climate change, harvesting consderations, different plant species represented and the overall dynamic nature of each forest.
Purchased the sample pack. Would have liked 1 pipette for each bottle. Appreciated the packaging and shipping.
Thank you Forester John
I like bogs, I like the smell of bogs, but when I saw this I couldn’t quite imagine what it would smell like. Answer: bogs. It smells cool and refreshing, piney but also a little grassy. A unique scent for sure, someone might even choose to wear it as a light cologne. I enjoy this one when I get home from work, comforting and smells like hiking.
I previously lived in Estonia and enjoyed not only our forests but those in neighboring Finland and into Sweden. The taiga is one of my favorite landscapes in the world and this smells so deliciously piney and good, not like a cleaning product but very much like northern Scandinavia. The smell of midnight sun and aurora borealis! I know each tree smells differently, but having also ordered the Sax-Zim Bog scent (also accurate!), I can attest to each of these smelling very unique from one another.
Awesome stuff !!! Love it and great experience ever fast shipping!!!
I loved being able to sample all of the oils, I have my favorites but they are all amazing. The oils are earthy and grounding, no artificial/purfumey smells at all. Very happy with the oils.
Transported to the forest
It sucks to be stuck inside all year but at least it smells like a Forrest in here :))))) my faves are hoh rains Forrest and Denali ✨
used as a gift. Incredible idea to allow a person to pick and choose. Highly recommended.
a beautiful scent, fresh and clean, exactly what I hoped. I used this as a gift and it was extremely well received.
I’ve been working at home the last few months and feeling so tense with everything going on in the world. Ordered Forester John’s sample set and received them quickly and promptly added one of the oils in my diffuser. Pure bliss and relaxation! Not overpowering or fake like some other oils or candles. Very happy with my purchase
I grew up in and around the Rocky Mountains. When I visualize my "happy place" it's not a beach, it's on a mountain, with my feet in a babbling stream, the warm sunlight filtering though the pines and aspens. The scent of the fresh air in the trees is indescribable.
Obviously this is NOT a smell from the Rockies, but it's sooooo close that just opening the bottle takes me to my happy place ... Even if I'm in a tiny apartment in the city.
I was hesitant to purchase this, having had my heart broken too many times by sad pine-sol and fake Christmas tree smelling candles, room sprays and essential oils. But I'm too glad I did. This is the real deal.
Really like the scents. Forester John keep up the great work.
This is a clean and wild scent. Very high quality and well designed product.
I'm never happier than when I'm hiking in the woods. I love being embedded in the fragrance of the trees, earth and surrounding water. This essential oil blend allows me to bring part of that experience indoors -- pure joy!
I am so glad you like the BWCA forest scent Susan! Thank you for sharing your experience! - Forester John ↟
I ordered the sample kit. I was glad I did because I found out the ones that really worked for me. They do not all smell the same (who knew not all pines smelled alike)
They all are wonderful but there are two that I really love. It does take you to a place when you use them. Sometimes the aroma takes me to
a peaceful place, some times it invigorates me and often it seems to sharpen my mind. So if your wondering which one you would, like I suggest ordering
the sample kit. Who knows what you may find out about your self. ;)
How can you go wrong with the rich scent of trees!? This one happens to be my favorite after getting the sample pack, but none of them smell bad. Somewhat expensive, but high quality.
I was looking for a something to help connect me to the forest when I can not go to them. After I put the diffuser on it really does give the scent that you are in the forrest. I would definitely recommend the oils to anyone looking to get the authentic forest smell and bring a little nature inside
Also the emails from John are an added bonus.
... I am going to Acadia. Nice clean oil. Beautifully packaged. Very thoughtful touches added. Continue your good work. Thank you for a wonderful product.🌲
I love all the smells! They make my home feel like a forest. Tiny cute bottles, but bold scents!
I love my essential oils from Forester John! I couldn’t decide which one I wanted so I got the sample pack, I love every scent. You absolutely cannot go wrong with any scent you choose.
I am a mental health therapist and have been researching the benefits of nature on mental health. After learning about the many benefits of "forest bathing" and phytoncides from conifer trees, I stumbled upon this website. Essential oils from conifer trees contain phytoncides, and this company reportedly uses great care in harvesting these oils. After ordering 2 different blends, I fell in love immediately. I then ordered oils for 2 friends, and have since ordered more for myself! I diffuse these to help sleep, in my home throughout the day, and in my office to aid my clients in promoting calm. I highly recommend these oils for any nature lover and also for anyone having issues with depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, sleep issues, or really anyone wanting to add more tranquility to their life. Thank you, Forester John!
I love that a sample pack is offered. Although it didn’t make the choice on which one to buy any easier because all the scents are fantastic. So many scents bother my allergies, and none of the oils from Forester John have given me any difficulty. I was also very pleased with how quickly I received my order.
You are an artist. Beautiful product. Thank you John.
