Forest Sampler Pack

I really like the oils and would have given 5 stars if the tiny little bottles in the pack were all full. However, 4 of them had loose caps and the oil leaked into the packing material. They contained less than half the oil when they arrived.

Rita! I am so happy that you like the smell of the sample blends. That's great! I am bummed that you had to experience some leaky bottles:( I have had a few instances where the caps are not sealing properly and I am working on preventing this from happening again. I see you already placed an order for some of the forest blends. I can't thank you enough for still coming back! This order is on me and l will be will be issuing you a full refund ASAP;) Thank YOU!!! - Forester John ↟
Sampler pack

The sample pack was exactly what I needed. The bottles are generously big enough for a few applications each. I have a new found love for my diffuser.

Thanks for the review Brian! I am glad you like them. - Forester John ↟
love this blend

Never been to the Adirondacks, but I am certain now that they smell fantastic...

Hey Christine! You are on a roll! Thank you! I am glad you are happy. It is hard not to enjoy the clean and fresh notes of this blend. Bliss to you ;) - Forester John ↟
a delight to breathe in

I was surprised this blend didn't have more reviews- it really is an excellent mix! One sniff from the bottle and I can hear the wind whistling through the conifers...

When I had all my blends out at a Minnesota Twins game series this one was consistently the favorite by those who stopped by to give feedback. Similar to the BWCA, it has a complex aroma, not quite as sweet but hit more high and fresh notes. Thanks again! - Forester John ↟
a heavenly smell from the PNW

I've never been to the PNW but after having smelled it in this blend, I just might have to go.

Hi Christine. Thanks for the review! The Olympic peninsula is a magical place. I have been there twice. The trees have there own unique smell that differs from the other blends. I am glad you like it! - Forester John ↟
my favorite of the bunch!

I tried Forester John's sampler back and the BWCA blend ended up being my favorite (and not just because I am a fellow Minnesotan, although I may be a bit biased). It is unlike any other blend I've ever smelled before; woodsy but with a sweet, almost fruity twist. I can't get enough of it.

Thanks! If I had to choose one blend I would also go with the BWCA blend. The scent is so fulfilling it is hard to describe. I am not sure how I pulled this one off :) - Forester John ↟
Give them a try (they're all great)!

Getting out in nature is unquestionably good for the heart and soul, but in the dead of winter it can be tough to get one's Forest Therapy in. So glad I discovered fellow Minnesotan Forester John and his essential oil blends! I ordered the sampler pack so I could try them all and it took me weeks to decide which ones to order in the full size. I eventually chose Acadia, Adirondack, Olympic and BWCA - but they are all good, all different, and all worth a try.

Thanks Christine! Yes! I could not agree more with you what you are saying. These oils are a great way to feel a sense of connection to the forest in winter. I also have a hard time choosing favorites. They all are similar yet also different. You made some great choices. Thank you for the review! - Forester John ↟
Sampler Set

Was Very Disappointed that these oils don’t come from the actual destinations these trees are from. Would not have bought them if the description of products were more clear.

Hi Kelley! I am glad you received the oils and thanks so much for the feedback. For your trouble and disappointment I issued you a full refund. I sure don’t intend to mislead anyone and will review the info on my product pages to make sure the descriptions are clear. It would be amazing if all my blends came from the exact location of every National Park and forest! However, being that these forests and National Parks are protected, it would be difficult to make that happen. The good news is that Mother Nature does not follow our boundaries. A white spruce tree that grows in Canada, for example, smells and acts the same as the one across the border in the US. With this principle in mind, I then use my knowledge of forests to take the individual tree oils and blend them in a similar ratio just as they exist in a specific forest. For example, in the flats of Denali National Park there are sprawling forests of white spruce and black spruce trees. I select these two oils from a reputable distiller and blend them in a typical ratio that actually exists in that forest. For me, just knowing that I am smelling the same trees species that exist together in a real forest helps me feel connected to that place. The end result is a peaceful memory, a brief sense of calm, and a stronger desire to get out and enjoy the forest :) - Forester John ↟
Like forest bathing in my house!

I’m so glad that I found Forester John! I recently began the practice of forest bathing and I wanted a way to recreate a bit of its magic in my home. I tried scented candles, but they were so disappointing-they smelled overwhelming and fake and left soot on my cabinets. Although I have ZERO experience with oils, when I saw an ad for Forester John, I knew I wanted to try them. I put two of his oils that are from favorite destinations and a diffuser on my Christmas list, and was immediately in love when I tried them! I ordered the sampler pack to get an idea of which other blends I’d like to purchase in the future and I love them all! The packaging is beautiful, informative, and eco-conscious. I’m hooked and will be purchasing additional diffusers in the future to bring the magic of the forest to more rooms via Forester John. Thank you for this exceptional product.

Hi Amy. Wow! I am so glad you found my oils! Keeping your connection to the forest alive when you can't be there is what this is all about. I too could not quite get the same feeling when burning candles. The oil diffused in water is so pure and fresh:) Thank you for the review! - Forester John ↟

The perfect set to get a feel for all the beautiful smells!!

I am glad you like the sample pack Lauren! Thanks! - Forester John ↟
Acadia wow

The Acadia Park oil brings me back to my vacation to Bar Harbor, Maine. This scent brings me peace.

Thanks David! Bar Harbor is a magical place:) - Forester John ↟
Pretending I have a real tree

I loved this for Christmas! I put my diffuser near my fake Christmas tree and ran it so everyone would come in thinking I had a real tree in the house!! Thanks John!!

Hi Jen! I am glad you like it. Thank YOU! - Forester John ↟
I'm in the kayak!

Purchased the Bound Waters...and Olympic...; filled the diffuser, sat in my recling glider, closed my eyes, and in my mind's eye/nose I was sitting in my SWIFT doing a slow paddle!

Yes! Thank you for sharing this Margaret! Ok, I am going to swing away in my BWCA hammock for a few minutes... ;) - Forester John ↟
Adirondack

This was a present to my husband. He loved it immediately. I love it. It takes us back to camping in the Adirondacks. Our dog is absolutely crazy about the scent too. I guess he misses camping there as much as we do. Can't wait to purchase the Acadia oil.

Hi Stephanie! I am so happy that this takes you to the Adirondacks! Thanks for sharing your review:). - Forester John ↟
The Holidays can Last a Little Longer

Just a little something to get us through the longest months of the year. Awesome pine smell that lasts long after all the holiday decorations are put away and warmth of the season is long behind us.

Hi Laura. Thanks for sharing this and taking the time to write a review! - Forester John ↟
Sampler pack

So pleased you created the sampler pack of your exquisite evergreen oils !!! I purchased three as quickly as I could and was able to share among my family and friends !!! I use passive diffusion since I have fur babies in my home , and love the smell of the forest !! My favorite place to be :)
Much love and light John

Thank you for the kind review Andrea! I hope your family and friends enjoy them as well! - Forester John ↟
BWCA Memento

My partner and I, both in our early 60s, spent a weekend in the BWCA last October - his first time there, my third with a twenty-two-year gap. Fortunately, Mother Nature granted a break in the rain and early snow. Sun and slightly warmer temperatures provided wafts of cedar and pine - scents we both love. In other words, we lucked out, and can now reclaim a bit of that experience through the BWCA blend. My other fir or pine essential oils can't compare, even with an attempted blend. The BWCA "notes" are that distinct.I bought the BWCA blend as a holiday gift which hasn't yet been diffused it. Yet, clearly, it's appreciated. My partner even commented on the quality packaging design! Fun to see him, keeping the metal canister close by on a reading table, occasionally removing the bottle and indulging in the scent. Great work, Forester John!

Hi Karen! Thank you for sharing this! The BWCA is a magical place. If there is any way to help place us there then our day is that much better. I am so happy that you and your partner are able to experience this:) Cheers! - Forester John ↟
The smell of Christmas

I love Christmas time, especially the smell of an evergreen tree in the house. Now I can have that wonderful smell year round! Thanks.

You are welcome Daniel! I like the smell of evergreen trees in my house year round as well:) Thanks! - Forester John ↟
It's like we're cutting our tree!

A great oil, bringing us back to the Christmas tree each time we open it.

Thanks Bethany! - Forester John ↟
A Lot Of Memories

Just discovered Forester John's website..ordered Christmas Tree Lot. It honestly does smell like it's name and being in my 70's I've had a great deal of visits to tree lots under my belt!! I'm a Happy Camper/Hiker and will order, again, in the near future.

Great to hear Margaret! I am glad you found my website and are enjoying Christmas Tree Lot. Thanks! - Forester John ↟
Great outdoors in your pocket

Yes that's what this is. The small bottle falls like I have a small forest of my own personal Christmas trees in my pocket. Whenever I am stressed or need of a soothing smell I open this little bottle and instantly feel like I am in the woods. I absolutely love this and will be buying more when this one runs out.

Who else wouldn't want the smell of the great outdoors in your pocket? Love it! Thank you so much Patricia! - Forester John ↟

Great oils. Very pleased!!

Thanks Sherry! - Forester John ↟
Amazing

My friend got me this blend and a diffuser as a Christmas gift. It is absolutely amazing it smells exactly like you’re walking through the Christmas tree lot. I’m super picky with what scents I like and don’t normally like the Christmas tree candles and stuff because they smell fake and artificial, there is nothing about this that smells artificial or fake, it’s perfect.

Thanks Bridget! I was hoping you would experience that. Happy Holidays! - Forester John ↟
Disappointing

The scents are too pungent

Hi Joe. So sorry this did not work out for you :( Thanks for taking the time to submit a review. - Forester John ↟
Beautiful, sweet smell

A really great compliment to scents like the Hoh Rain Forest. An earthy and slightly sweet smell, it's welcoming. I also dilute it and add to shaving oil!

Hi Brian. Now that is a new way to use my product that I have not thought of! Thanks for sharing :) - Forester John ↟
