“Forest bathing” is a practice to improve our health and well-being that is rooted in Nature and backed by science. Many of us engage in it unknowingly when we are out on a hike or when we spend time in Nature. Don’t let the term “bathing” fool you, forest bathing is most simply defined as immersing oneself in Nature. The beneficial effect of being surrounded by trees in a forest is of great value to our nervous system, immune system, cardiovascular system, and overall health. When we forest bathe, we are steeping our senses in the aromatic compounds released by the trees, and cocooning ourselves in the diverse microbiome of the forest.
Our Forest Bath blend looks to recreate this experience in a mist as a way to take the forest with you wherever you go. We recommend using our Forest Bath as a body mist, a room spray, or linen spray. Breathe in the scent of the forest to ground and center yourself when you can’t be physically among the trees.
This blend includes Coastal Redwood from a biodynamic farm just miles from our Petaluma Barn, in addition to Cypress, Cedar, and a hint of Rosemary. This farmer uses fallen limbs and other reciprocal harvesting methods to preserve the beautiful forest lands on her property, and introduces Rose Quartz into her distillation process. Additionally, we add Sandalwood from a Hawaiian family reforestation farm, and a blend of Ponderosa Pine, Douglas Fir and White Sage; all organically cultivated and distilled by a farmer in the Pacific Northwest. This aromatic blend of plants captures many of the native and bountiful flora growing in the Pacific forests and drylands.
In combination with Anointing Oil: Spiritual Warrior, this hydrosol blend makes a lovely gift for a meditation altar or a busy office desk.

Single Farm Hydrosols – Our hydrosols are distilled exclusively for Laurel Skin by master distillers in small batches. They also happen to be distilled by the same individuals who farm and harvest them. These rare hydrosols take on the aromatic compounds of the plants, as well as the soul of the plants and land. We feel this blend perfectly captures the essence of the forest, and the dedication of the distillers and farmers elevates the experience.

Ritual: My favorite way to use the Forest Bath is in my morning meditation ritual. I begin by misting my space before sitting. Then I apply one drop of Spiritual Warrior to my wrists and take a deep inhale. I care for these plants as if they are my family– they are my companions and support my journey here on this Earth plane. I do my best to stay focused on my breath and body for a period of anywhere between two and ten minutes. I find that when I lose my way in thought, I am often pulled back to present moment by the aroma of one of the plants. This gift is a gentle nudge from them. As I finish, I spray the Forest Bath again, rejuvenated and invigorated to begin the day.
