Let me give you the lowdown on these oils:

TLDR: These are strong, stable, well sealed, well packaged, and effective oils. The eucalyptus and peppermint have all but cured one of my relative's migraines, and the tea tree oil saved my relationship with my roommate when I accidentally left wet clothes in the washer for a week. (It was smelling good as new by the time I was done)

Now for the details....if you're willing to read them (Highly recommended)

ARE THESE OILS FAKE?

First of all, define "fake?" There are several posts on here talking about how these oils were proven to be a scam. One of the methods that they use to define purity is Gas Chromatography. I used this when studying organic chemistry, and basically, you run the oil through a machine, and it gives you a graph with "blips" where certain chemicals react. I have attached one of these graphs so that you can see an example. It's the graph of the Basil's essential oil. (Also, everything is a chemical, so please don't say "I want my essential oils free of chemicals.) If a substance is "pure," you should expect "blips" at a very specific pattern in the graph with NO deviations, but apparently, with these oils, there are "blips" where there shouldn't be.

That being said, these are authentic essential oils, but in order to distill them to be 100% pure, it takes time, patience, and frankly, luck to keep them from decomposing into a chemical you don't want (which means extra "blips" on the graph). Trust me, I've distilled orange oil and clove oil in ochem lab (never again....please God)

So you may notice you're not paying a premium. This is because these oils were not painstakingly distilled to 100% purity. It costs exponentially more for just a little more purity, so that's why these are so cheap. They could be 97% pure, but it takes tons more time and money to get them to 100%, so why not just enjoy them? I've been using them for months for aromatherapy, and have experienced nothing but healing. Obviously if you're going to be consuming them, you should go for something more expensive. But these are PERFECT for aromatherapy, and you shouldn't pay a premium if you're just using them for bath bombs and homemade cleaner.

I hope this helped you guys. I love these oils, and if they're good enough for me, they are good enough for you!

This set is great, 8 oils allow me to use them for a couple of the recipes that work for me (70ml diffuser):
Focusing attention: 2 drops of orange, 2 drops of peppermint
Clear Breathing: lavender (2), lemon (2), peppermint (2); during winter - lemon (1), eucalyptus (1), peppermint (2), rosemary (2).

The oils have a great smell and sealed tightly in a box (no leaks). This one was new to me: they have an expiration date. So, you may want to note that they expire in two years.

I only wish that cinnamon and bergamot were included. I'll have to buy them separately. Frankincense and bergamot is a great combination for stress relief, while frankincense, cinnamon, and orange combination give you an energy in the mornings.

You should know I don't have any experience with Aromatherapy. You should also know I didn't even consider Aromatherapy. I am a sixty nine year old man suffering from more than a few medical conditions all the results of Parkinson's disease. It has progressed to where I'm in a power wheelchair. I'm not looking for any sympathy as I'm doing very well. I'm enjoying life and look forward to each new day. Because of the Parkinson's I must rely on a whole bunch of people to take over many of the things I can no longer do. These aides have become almost like family and have become very special in my life. One of these aides mentioned Aroma Therapy and its possible benefits. We got into a running discussion on the subject and basically to quiet her I purchased a diffuser and this eight pack of essential oils. When it arrived the aide set it up and we put a couple of drops of Sweet Orange in the diffuser. She set the timer and continued to get her daily chores while I sat myself in front of the computer researching Aromatherapy. My goodness, there are literally volume after volume on the subject. With in minutes after plugging the diffuser the sweet smell of orange peel filled the air. It made the room smell good but in all honesty that's all it did. Once the timer shut off the diffuser the aide started it again using the same water and oil. Again the room was filled with orange but as far as I was concerned nothing else. From the bedroom where the aid was working in she yelled how nice my apartment was smelling. From around the corner she appeared and said " Do you realize you are humming " ? She's been with me from the beginning and does know me well and knows my good and bad moods. When she returned to her work I indeed did catch myself humming. I can't remember the last time I had hummed. Could it be? When she left at the end of the day I returned to my research and investigated what each oil in the sample kit. Frankincense, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Sweet Orange, Tea Tree and Rosemary. Each oil offers its own benefits to the human physic. The next day I was up and making a cup of coffee and caught the diffuser out of the corner of my eye. I wheeled over to the diffuser got the measuring cup with water and picked out the Lavender oil for no other reason than it was supposed to be a mood changer. Maybe I placed a few more drops than necessary,but soon my apartment smelled like a flower shop. Not a bad fragrance to have. Now you expect me to say how this oil got me out of my chair and dancing right? I did notice a change in my mood however. It was like, it was like, I don't know what it was like. I wasn't thinking about what needed to be done or looking for the times people were coming. It was like I didn't need to know what needed to be done nor what time people were coming by. My aid noticed the fragrance the second she walked in. We chatted for a bit and she asked if I would like a cup of coffee from Duncan as we have one close by. She's been with me for close to two years and in all that time never once went for coffee. Could it be the Lavender? Over the next few days we tried the different oils. We have found Lavender the best and the Peppermint second best. The peppermint reminded me of my mom baking Christmas cookies. Since then I have ordered a diffuser and the oils for my two aides. I truly now believe Aroma Therapy with the oils has made a difference.

I have purchased many different brands of essential oils (Doterra, Young Living, Aura Cacia, etc.) and found that these are of equal quality to a lot of big name brands such as ones listed above. This set is great quality at a great price and includes all my favorite oils! Not all oils are created equally, so it is important to do your research especially if you are wanting to ingest the oils.

New to essential oils, but scents were strong, packaged well, and loved that there is a book that comes with it that gives you some basic blend and uses. I received them today and have already used the sweet orange, lavender, tea tree, and lemongrass.

These are a great kit if you are looking for inexpensive good quality oils. Stand up to oil test, which means they did not leave a stain and dried clear on a white surface. Smell great. I always get compliments using them in my diffuser. Great addition for baths, cleaning products, and the many other health benefits.

Excellent sampling! Works very well with my diffuser. From this sampling I can determine my future fragrance choices; I have also experimented with blending certain fragrances together, etc. This is a great sampling for learning about the different fragrances and deciding which ones you want to buy in a larger size next time.

I used these oils with Housmile Essential Oil Diffuser, 350ml Wood Grain Aromatherapy Diffuser Ultrasonic Cool Mist Aroma Humidifier with Adjustable Mist Mode, Waterless Auto Shut-Off, 7 Color LED Lights, so if that is different than yours, this review may be a bit different.

Overall, good smelling oils, they seem of pretty high quality. I love the smells that come with them, I originally had 6 of them from a different company but now have all 8. It even comes with a basic recipe-book, which is my favorite part about these, as it gives various combinations/uses of various oils. This way I'm not just putting in Sweet Orange over and over.

The oil did seem to have minor troubles coming out of the bottles, some were too slow and others way too fast, but you can easily get used to it.

I am not an expert on oils as this is my first set. But I have to say I think they are wonderful. My daughter came home sick with a cold/allergies so we used the peppermint and eucalyptus in the diffuser. We suffer from allergies here in Texas quite a bit so this is great. My whole family loves these oils I will definitely order again.
