Ancient Forest Tree Mists

Therapeutic, Exquisitely-Scented Forest Energy

“I find the Tree Mists to be such wonderful tools in personal transformational work. They keep us firmly grounded while providing a safe space for us to explore and expand our inner work.”
Shelley Adams, Artist & Medicine Woman

The Tree Mists are handcrafted by Melissa Krige, producer of the African Tree Essences. By blending the therapeutic infusions of her African Tree Essences with oils derived from the wild Fynbos of the Cape Floral Kingdom, she has created a truly unique product that captures the essence of Africa.

The essential oil blends for the thirteen different Tree Mists are each carefully selected to enhance and amplify the actions of the African Tree Essences. A further synergy is added in the form of a colour essence – these are vibratory in nature and carry the energetic properties of the particular colour. Combined, these create a tapestry of healing that echoes the energy, scent and colour of the rich forest atmosphere from whence they originate.

The harmonising energies of the Tree Mists engage directly with the electromagnetic field that surrounds the body, instantly raising the vibrations. Each Tree Mist enhances a different quality of being. For example, the Cherry Wood enhances calmness and peace, whilst the Wild Peach fosters confidence, courage and focus.

The Tree Mists vs Perfumes

The Tree Mists, whilst beautifully scented, are not perfumes. They do not contain chemical fixatives so their scent will not remain for hours like a perfume does. Their use is intended for their therapeutic properties: they lift and transform energy. Think of them as the next best thing to visiting an ancient, old-growth forest! The Tree Mists are also not gender-specific: both men and woman can benefit from their energy, and children love them (with parental guidance).


Handcrafted and bottled in the wilderness setting of Platbos Forest, every care and attention is given to ensure that the Ancient Forest Tree Mists contain nothing but pure, ethically sourced ingredients. The essences hold an exceptionally high vibration that is reflected in their elegant glass bottles. The Tree Mists are beautiful: inwardly and outwardly.
