Mountain Mist Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Bring the spirit of the forest into your living space with Mountain Mist fragrance oil. Originating in Japan, shinrin-yoku, or forest bathing, is the practice of spending time in nature and it’s been growing in popularity. Why? Because unplugging and connecting to nature helps us de-stress, be present, and it just feels nice!

Unlike our other pine forest scents, Mountain Mist focuses on lush green and marine notes. Airy top notes of ozone, green floral, and marine are tinged with apple and mint. Leafy green leaves and fragrant eucalyptus compose the heart of this scent, which rests on a woodland base of moss, sandalwood, and balsam. Capture the spirit of the forest in candles, melts, and tarts. Or, emulate a forest bath with soaps, scrubs, lotions, and other bath and body products.

This fragrance is infused with essential oils, including cedarwood, orange, elemi, guaiacwood, peppermint, eucalyptus, nutmeg, and birch tar.

Blends well with: Fireside, Gardenia and Tuberose

Alternative branding ideas: In the Clouds, Misty Pine, Mountain Air, Forest Bathing

Suggested colors: Green, Light Gray, Light Blue

Cold Process Soap Performance

Dark Yellow

Lye Water Temperature 115ºF (46.1°C) Oil Temperature 113ºF (45°C)

We experienced moderate acceleration and some slight separation. Once we added the lye water to the oils, we made a few quick pulses with the stick blender and could already see some thickening even though a full emulsion had not yet been achieved. We continued hand stirring to help form a stable emulsion which then quickly formed a thick trace that was the consistency of lumpy mashed potatoes. Despite how thick the batter became, it was not stiff, so we continued to hand stir and confirm there were no loose oils or lye water. We plopped the soap in the mold and tamped it several times on the counter to try and minimize any air pockets that may have formed inside. After 24 hours, we observed the soap had reached a full gel except for the corners and had a texture similar to hot process soap. The bars were also slightly weepy after the cut. The scent was strong, and the soap had discolored yellow. After 30 days, the soap discolored to a dark yellow. The scent remained strong but had a slight shift from the out of bottle character. While the soap did fully saponify and created a usable bar of soap, the finished texture may not have the desired look for your cold process soap. You may find using this fragrance in a hot process soap or other personal care application easier.

Can't get enough of it

This fragrance has become one of my new personal favorites. I does take me into the misty mountains. I get the water element as well as pine and other green natural scents. The pine isn't to strong, as in it doesn't take over the scent. There's a good mixture of all the other fragrances to balance everything out. I don't think the fragrance is sickly sweet as other reviewers have suggested. I guess you could describe it as slightly sweet as this is how some people perceive pine as having a natural sweetness to it. I used 10% in a 52/48 percent soy-paraffin blend with an ECO wick and the HT is fabulous. To be honest, I didn't even try to make a pure soy test candle because usually water fragrances aren't strong enough for pure soy. Now, judging from the strength of my test candle, and the recent reviews I just read, I probably should have tried to pour a pure soy candle first.

Very good scent!!!

I used this fragrance at 8% in 100% soy wax and I was amazed at how well the hot throw filled the house. The oceanic/ozone fragrance was strong but not overpowering and made the house feel clean and light. I will be reordering this fragrance in larger quantities.

Cloyingly Sweet, Great Hot Throw

I can’t see a connection to the mountains with this one. It almost smells like over ripe bananas with just a pinch of pine. It has a great hot throw though!

Not my favorite

So I made this into soap - both M&P and Whipped. Both just smell... strange... Nothing reminds me of mountain mist. It smells almost like an earthy mix of salt and well dirt. Maybe it's someone else's favorite, but personally, I can't do it. I mixed this with a few other scents and the earthy tone still overrides everything else.

Trying a new sent.. this is a good one

If you love pine, but want it to have of hint of sweet. This is the one for the holiday seasons! I tried a sample of this one and instantly fell in love!

Slightly sweet

It's slightly sweet, but honestly, it really smells great. There's something in there that smells clean which I think balances the sweetness nicely. I just ordered more!

Apple Shmapple Who Cares!

Intriguing and SO different from run of the fragrances! Hands down this was one of my favorite releases this fall/winter. To me (I know it’s so subjective) it smells of that magical wet and mossy high altitude air. Fresh and bright, INHALE DEEPLY. An excellent thrower in my Coconut Apricot wax. I’d give it a 10!

Fresh and clean!

Absolutely incredible! Made soy wax candle and the scent is just elegant, cool, woodsy and perfect! Great job! I will be adding this to my candle line!

This scent smells so fresh and clean. It smells like cut evergreens and the outdoor air. Used for melt & pour soap but this would smell so good as a candle or room spray too. I ordered a few other scents like cashmere musk, golden sandal, and black cardamom but this one is my favorite.

Love it!

This is a great all year round scent. I see others saying it is heavy on the apple, but I don’t get that feeling at all! Theres a ton of layers to it, out of all of the new ones they released in the all-year round line, this is hands down the best!
