Is Snoring Affecting Your Relationship?
Try these gentle, non-invasive remedies for a better night's sleep!
Lack of sleep can affect your energy level, your sex life, and your ability to communicate in loving way. Young Living's therapeutic grade essential oils have been used by couples to solve their snoring problems.
Here are my top recommendations:
Lavender: A gentle sleep aid & natural anti-histamine
- Diffuse in the room prior to bedtime
- Rub 2-4 drops on each foot, back of the neck and on the pillow
- Apply a few drops to a cotton swab and rub the inside of the nostrils
Valor: A blend of essential oils found to help energy alignment in the body
- Apply 6 drops on each foot for a relaxing, deep sleep
Peace & Calming: a gentle, fragrant blend. When diffused, it helps calm tensions and uplift the spirit, promoting relaxation and a deep sense of peace. When massaged on the bottoms of the feet, it can be a wonderful prelude to a peaceful night's rest.
- Diffuse in the bedroom
- Rub 2-4 drops on bottoms of feet
R.C.(TM) contains powerful therapeutic-grade essential oils that are invigorating when applied, especially to the chest and throat area:
- To help with snoring due to congestion, dilute 1 drop with 1 drop V6 oil or olive oil and apply to chest and throat
Thyme: supports the immune, respiratory, digestive, nervous, and other body systems.*
- Apply 2 drops undiluted on the bottoms of the feet
I started using Lavender on myself for insomnia. I started diffusing it and to my surprise my husband stopped snoring. I tried it 3 nights in a row to make sure I wasn't imagining it and sure enough he wasn't snoring. He rarely snores now. When I go to bed I put Lavender on his pillow or on his neck. Works for both of us! ~Sandra G.
Lavender: I tried to rub a few drops in mine and my family's pillows before sleep and also in their back neck and this morning hubby ( who always gets a headache because of minor sleep apnea due to snoring and increased weight) said he slept good and the snoring was not as loud… ~Antonette
My husband has sleep apnea and uses Valor on his feet every night. 6 drops on each foot ~Ladonna H.
Been using Valor on my husband's feet to lessen his snoring. He suggested I use it on mine also. Three nights so far, still some snoring, but we both feel it is not as loud or as much! ~Susan R
Ok seriously my husband was snoring so LOUD last night I swear the neighbors could hear him! I remembered seeing a post on here about it so I grabbed my phone to look it up. I put Peace & Calming in the diffuser and rubbed Valor on his feet (he didn't even move that's how out he was) then I put a little Valor on his arm that was right under his nose. He was much quieter within minutes! If he got louder I put the open bottle right under his nose. I swear when I did that it was complete silence! Thanks for the tips ladies! I was happy that I finally got to sleep! ~Kim S
I woke up in the middle of the night sneezing and was congested. I went out and put my RC on my chest. I immediately felt better but here is the cool part: My children who were snoring due to congestion were peacefully sleeping within 10 minutes! Woohoo! ~Dawn S
My friend Carol told me something that fascinated me. Her husband has a very bad snoring problem which developed into a sleep apnea. This is a more serious problem where you even stop breathing in your sleep possibly hundreds or thousands of times per night. Because of this, he has slept with a c-pap machine now for about 18 years. He sleeps very peaceful when he uses that machine. Due to a bad storm they lost their electric; Carol decided to use the Young Living Oils mentioned for snoring, the Thyme essential oil. The recommendation was to rub 4-6 drops Thyme oil diluted 50-50 on the soles of both feet at bedtime. She had put 2 drops neat (undiluted) on each foot. She said that after applying the oils, it wasn't but about 20 minutes that the snoring STOPPED! ~Olga H
