Each oil is my favorite! I love this sampler!!!!

As a big fan (addict) of evergreen trees and their fragrances, I love the idea -- and the reality -- of these oils. The sampler is a great way to explore the different choices, but... so much for deciding: Each one I try becomes my favorite one... until I try the next one. I LOVE THEM ALL! Also, John responded very quickly to my inquiry, and the package was quickly mailed and delivered with perfectly sustainable and wonderful packaging! Thanks so much for these great oils and fantastic customer care!


Where do I start? First of all John’s customer service is a 10/10! I purchased the Hoh Rainforest as soon as I saw it. My daughter took me there last summer. It’s the most magical place. Everything was so green and so refreshingly alive. The air was so clean smelling. It’s my daughter’s most favorite place in the PNW so I bought the oil to make her a candle. I can’t wait to try it out!!


I was hoping my boyfriend would use these as a substitute for cologne since he's not a huge fan of the fake, chemically smells. He does, and he loves them, and I love how natural he smells. We also put these oils in our diffuser, and when we come back inside the house, it's as if we're walking through a forest. These are beautiful scents and well worth the purchase!

Amazing scents

It was very hard to choose just one scent from the samples because they all smelled so crisp and like you were waking up in the middle of the forest during winter. Very happy with my purchase and the oils are very natural.

I smell the forest in my house.

I smell the forest in my house from now on. For me living in the desert, it means a lot, I have always been a forest person. I am going to purchase the same set for my best friend, she will get crazy having those!!! I love them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! To sum up, if you are forest person, love the smell of pine, fir and fresh rooty gound, you need to get those oils!!!!!!!!!!!!

A rollercoaster of emotions!

First, I was shocked by the price tag. But the reviews, plus a past promotion swayed me in. It all made sense when I opened my first delivery. The smell that comes out of these lil bottles is incredible. Nature. Camping. Forest. That feeling you get when you wake up in your tent, in the middle of nowhere. If you could condense forest smell into a liquid, you would get just that. No disappointing chemical smells, weird fillers, fake "woodsy" scents = just pure bliss of God's nature. I don't know how you do it, man, but it is pure magic. First I ordered a sample kit, then a big bottle of Hoh Rain Forest ( to relive some sentimental hikes in that area, years back ) and now I am on the bedrock conifer forest. I.can' Each bottle lasts me about 3-4 months with moderate use. Yes, I understand. They cost 3x what you will pay on amazon or whatever, but nothing - and I mean it - nothing comes ANYWHERE close to FJ bottles of magic. It is worth it, and you should stop reading and just buy it. ( maybe start with a sample pack first? ).

Also, the packaging is super dope. You will understand when you get it :)

Waking up in a luxury campsite!!

I just LOVE these oils!! The Smoky Mountain blend is put into my diffuser each night and I wake up smelling the scent of my favorite thing, hiking in a National Park! A great way to start my day since I can’t be in a park daily!! Highly recommend this and the other oils!!!

This PNW girl loves this!

I've had so many fun memories vacationing to the area. Hoh Rainforest is breathtaking, this blend lives up to its name.

Alaska Verified

You can’t fake authentic fragrance. I gave this product the ULTIMATE test by giving local friends (all Alaskans) the task to simply close their eyes and tell me what came to mind when breathing in this scent. Everyone (!) responded “correctly.” Yes, this is really (white) spruce. Genuinely impressed by the commitment to capturing authentic forest fragrance. Truly amazing product.

Fresh, natural scent

We loved this essential oil. Use it in our diffuser and in our sauna. Very authentic and natural.

I'm getting younger

The Andirondacks were a haunt when I was younger. I've moved far away. I put a few drops in a warm bath and put on sounds of a babbling brook. Back I go, my head filled with rustic cabins, trout for breakfast, a little white water, and one brief but worthwhile romance. ♡

I can smell the cold.

I so love winter, and winter birding in Sax Zim Bog. This scent brings me there, far away from the strains of my urban life.


I chose this sent because it had a very woody smell. It gave my house a forestry feel. Thanks for developing these scents.
Thank you!

A slice of home for when you can’t make it outdoora

Purchased the sampler of “Which Forest is Calling You?” to experience each unique blend before I purchased bigger bottles of the ones I most enjoyed. I had a feeling I would deeply appreciate each oil blend, and was proven right! Which also made it difficult to choose my favorites! Aha. All of these blends are so woodsy, but then somehow have fruity undertones, which I love, and make for a pleasant sensory experience! You’re definitely going to want to just sit by your aromatherapy diffuser and breathe deeply, if you’re like me that is! The oils came is all eco-friendly packaging and very quickly!! Also, the thank you email was such a welcome moment of light to read even before receiving the oils!

To briefly summarize, you’ll want to buy them and spend a moment to relax! And hopefully go back for more, and maybe do something for the Earth we all inhabit as thanks!


Earthy Soul

This brilliant sample pack will have you wanting more. I'm an Herbalist, and these oils are worth every cent.

Forest Sampler Pack

I love the sampler pack so I can experience every scent and choose my favorites. I have already shared them with friends & family. I will definitely order more over time! Thank you!

Smokey Mountain Blend

I love how the scent reminds me of the forest while at home and at work! I use a candle diffuser which keeps the scent for hours. Thank you! I'll definitely be back for more and have already been telling others and sending them your way.

Great Product!

I look forward to trying each sample, they all smell amazing. Its like taking a hike in an exotic forest each day!


The Boundary Waters blend smells like home! The northern Minnesota memories of hiking the trails, taking in all the beauty and freshness, and the excitement of the wildlife that share this land with us!


All of the Forester John oils are great! I've never been to Alaska but this Denali blend was one of my favorites from the sampler pack. It has a rich, forest smell to me! All of the oils pull me back to the forests and nature! I especially enjoy them when I feel stressed and need calm.

A Mountain Lady’s go-to…

Each scent is exquisite and pure. The richness of the scent will transport you to the creaking of forests in a breeze. “Denali” is a favorite already. Having climbed That…Mountain, I was hopeful Forester John had caught the essence - and he had.
The care in the vegan packaging was superb.
I definitely will be purchasing from again.

So worth it!

These oils transport me. Was wondering if I would even like these oils and the sample kit let me test it all out for a lower entry fee. And I am glad I tried them. Each has its own unique textures and I can have a little variety when I need it.

Simply amazing

I adore all of the different oils I have received. The Hoh oil is my favorite. It takes me back to my childhood with fond memories of spending time with family camping and exploring the mighty Olympics! Thank you Forester John!

Love the Entire Experience

Everything about my interaction with Forester John has been professional. The web site. The ordering. The imeeidate reply to questions. The almost instnat packing and shipping of my order. The package I received was minimalist and well-designed.

And the oils? Lights out fantastic. The smell is so rich and fragrant and gives me the sense of the forest. I have the Sampler pack and the Hoh Rainforest and each time I use any of them, I close my eyes and I am standing in the middle of the forest again.

Thank you so much. Would highly recommend to anyone.

A perfect blend

I just returned from a trip to the Hoh Rainforest, and this essential oil blend brings me right back to the forest. Like forest bathing in a bottle!
