Great for restful sleep and a wonderful aid for snoring caused by allergies and/or inflammation caused by infection.
German Chamomile or Roman Chamomile
Also great for snoring due to allergies or seasonal changes. As an antihistomatic oil, these oils work by providing relief when inhaled and counteracting allergies.
You’ll love the slightly medicinal smell of thyme oil. It’s so addicting to me. Thyme oil is good for curing snoring due to blocked airway.
This is strong-smelling, airway opening oil that you will recognize if you have ever smelled Vicks Vapor Rub or similar. You can use this to help open blocked airways and help easy breathing.
Peppermint, tea tree, cedarwood, or pine
These oils are effective decongestant oils.
Bergamot and rosemary
These oils are best for their anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. They help with bacterial and viral infections.
How to Use Essential Oils
Its important to note that essential oils are powerful so you only need a few drops to do the job. First, identify the source of snoring. If due to allergy or seasonal changes, you’re gonna apply a couple drops to a tissue and inhale. You can do this during the day or at bedtime. You can also use a diffuser like this one, placed in your bedroom at night to diffuse the oil.
To clear blocked airways or congestion, apply 1 or 2 drops diluted in fractionated coconut oil and massage liberally onto your chest, back or feet.
Try these oils above to get relief from snoring and more restful sleep. For best results don’t forget to identify the source of snoring first, before you select the oil and application method.
