Quiet Nights! Stop Snoring Naturally

Written by Kari, Contributing Writer

Sometimes certain subjects aren’t exciting to talk about, but they affect our lives in more ways than we know. One of those is snoring. Yes, snoring and this is something that I have had to deal with in my 15 years of marriage. After 15 years of trying almost every way to eliminate this problem, it is FINALLY solved and we’ve had two months of snore-free nights. Now, I want to share with you how we got to this amazing place of peaceful and restful sleep – naturally!

First, lets look at some realistic statistics on this topic:

  •  30% of people 30 or older snore
  •  40% of people 40 or older snore
  •  19% of adult females snore
  •  59% of people who say their partner snores
  •  5.6% of children snore habitually
  •  28% of people who say they experience sleep apnea
  •  38 decibels – the average decibel level of a snore
  •  Approximately 9% of all men and 4% of all women between the ages of 30 and 60 are affected by sleep apnea.
  •  Sleep apnea may occur in as much as 20 to 40 percent of the adult population that are snorers.
  •  The partner of someone afflicted with sleep apnea loses approximately one hour of sleep per evening and may wake up as many as 21 times per hour, a side-effect of apnea known as “Spousal Arousal Syndrome”.
  •  People that are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea are as much as six times more likely to be involved in a car crash then those without sleep disorders. This is due to the fact that they are drowsy from the condition.
  •  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drowsy driving is responsible for at least 100,000 automobile crashes as well as 1,550 fatalities per year.

Now that we know this, isn’t it time we do something about it? On top of it, do something about it naturally.

Many of you already know the wonderful benefits of using therapeutic grade essential oils. Now, for me, I was always skeptical when it came to the properties of essential oils, although I’ve used them over the course of the past 22 years – mostly just for the scent, not the health benefits.

A few months ago, I came to a point I was pretty fed up with my husband’s snoring. Not fed up with my husband, but with the nearly sleepless nights I was getting because of this issue. Not only that – but sleep apnea had become a part of this issue, which is never fun. Laying awake at night, listening to the person you love stop breathing for short periods of time, waiting to hear them start breathing again. I also knew how this was affecting him. Read the statistics above if you need a reminder.

As a last resort, I asked a friend who used essential oils if there were any known oils that would help with snoring issues. She went through her book and gave me the names of some oil blends that were said to help eliminate snoring. I went ahead and ordered them along with the handbook, still skeptical, but desperate for something to work. Something that wouldn’t involve pills, surgery or machines.

Before we began applying the oils, I read through the essential oils handbook twice to make sure I had knowledge before blindly slathering therapeutic grade oils over my husband. I learned the why and how of using oils, the application, the cautions and everything I needed to know to understand why these should work.

Finally, the experimenting again. That’s how I looked at it – an experiment and I only gave it a week. I didn’t even jump in with both feet – I guess I was just hoping for the best and going for it.

Well, long story short, I began applying these 3 oil blends alternately (very important when using blends) every night on my husband’s chest and back and I am happy to say that we have had two months of snore-free nights! At first I thought it was a fluke, so we decided to stop using the oils for a couple nights, but the snoring returned, so we went back to using the oil blends.

Since seeing the results personally of using therapeutic grade essential oils, I pulled out all the books and information I’ve collected over the past 22 years and have had my nose in those books drinking in everything I’ve overlooked all these years. I am now also taking classes through a highly respectable certification program and have become a distributor of certified therapeutic grade essential oils through a non-MLM company.

I chose this company because it was the brand I first used and saw results with and I liked the fact that I can offer them to my clients a lower price than those from other companies since all middle men are removed. They are a wonderful, small company that sells high quality, therapeutic grade essential oils that work wonderfully!

  1. This sounds awesome! Would these blends be ok for high blood pressure? My husband has sleep apnea. Many years ago he had surgery for it, which didn’t help and I believe they now say they don’t even do that surgery any more. He snores very loudly and stops breathing a lot.

    • Hi Tara! These blends are fine with HBP. Many essential oils are also good to help lower blood pressure – so typically there aren’t many contraindications with EO’s, except for a few (and those are mostly with pregnant women). These blends target the respiratory system and have made such a huge difference for my husband. He never tried surgery, but he had sleep apnea and the snoring was truly out of control :o)

  2. Such an important topic. We have the same problem and we always look for ways to improve our sleep quality. Thanks for the great post!
