Hi Friends,

Oh do I have an awesome treat for you today! A new Essential Oil Blend. One that I make and use throughout my house and life. I have been keeping this secret for so long that if I don’t let you in on it I might just burst! Ok Ok.. It’s called Minty Mugger’s Oil! Although it has some of the same ingredients as other known brands like Young Living’s Thieves’, it’s definitely not the same and in my opinion SO. MUCH. BETTER!  Check it out.

What makes it different?

I mentioned in my post about Clove oil that it was used in a blend to protect Thieves from the bubonic plague. Besides the Clove Oil, it is said that Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary Essential Oils were also used to make this protective blend. I took those oils in a similar ratio and added 2 of my absolute favorite essential oils. Peppermint and Frankincense! Peppermint as well as Frankincense give the blend a more pleasant smell and added benefits.


These oils blended together provide an amazing array of benefits. With the antiseptic, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties, this blend can just about knock down anything harmful to you! Then add the antimicrobial, disinfectant, anti inflammatory benefits of the peppermint essential oil and the frankincense essential oil. I mean what more can you ask for?

Cleaning with Minty Mugger’s Essential Oil Blend

Cleaning with Minty Mugger’s Essential Oil blend or any blend related (ie Thieves, 5Guards OnGuard) is basically all you need. Besides some water, glass spray bottles, and a couple of reusable rags if you have a similar blend you are good to go.

How I clean with it.

I add approx 15-20 drops to a glass spray bottle with distilled water. This is strong enough to kill most surface bacteria and wipe right through grease and grime. I use it in the kitchen, bathroom, and even in the car! Spray on surface lightly wait a couple of seconds for it to “WORK” and then wipe away with a clean rag. It is that easy.
