Reminds me of home

Since I now live in the Sonoran Desert - this reminds me of home. I wear it on a lava bead diffuser bracelet along with rose essential oil.. truly it reminds me of home.

Hi Helen. So glad to hear that this blend reminds you of home! Thanks for the review. - Forester John ↟

A Natural Scent That Lives Up To Its Promise!

I was looking for an essential oil that would help put me in mind of a favorite activity (to get through long days of working from home). I came across Forester John's website and was impressed with the mission and the range of products.

The Sax-Zim Bog essential oil intrigued me because I hike in the Ramapo Mountains of NJ, home to many a swampy area! The oil was what I had hoped for - and more - a clean, natural scent that immediately puts me in a better frame of mind!

I've recently purchased the Acadia National Park essential oil and am delighted with that as well.

I cannot recommend Forester John and his wonderful product enough!

Hi AnnMarie. I am happy that the forest scents are helping you get through your work day. Thanks for the review! - Forester John ↟

I have used all of Forester John oils, with the exception of Christmas Tree Lot, and love all of them.Each one reminds me of a different place in the forest during a different season of the year. Sax-Zim Bog reminds me of walking on a dirt path as it has a more earthy scent. I will only use Forester John’s tree and outdoor oils from now on.

Hi Terry. I like your description of the scent. Dead on! Thanks again for the review :) - Forester John ↟

Quality Oils

I love the quality of these oils from the packaging to the scents themselves! Bought many as gifts for family, who also loved them. My mom still raves about them months after receiving! The bog is one of my favorites along with olympic. Recently opened the sampler pack and finding new favorites to order. Highly recommend! Helps you relax and takes you, family, and coworkers straight to the forest!

Thank you for the review Heather. I am glad you and your family are enjoying them :) - 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.

Julia. Thank you for your review and sharing this! I like your description :) - Forester John ↟
