Essential oil blend showing trees in the BWCA

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;)

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 ↟
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 ↟
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 ↟
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 ↟

Exceptionally strong and crisp. Easily the strongest and best essential oil I’ve ever used. Recommended 100%

Thanks BJ! - Forester John

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 ↟
