Natural Snoring Remedy
As I have stated before, my husband snores. Listening to my husband snore at night is the worst. He finally surrendered our desire to use a natural stop snoring remedy and just went with an anti snoring prescription medicine. We didn’t like it, but it was all that worked! We really wanted something natural, but nothing we tried worked. Many things can cause snoring, my husband has a deviated septum. Our doctor did suggest surgery, but said that surgery did not guarantee that he would stop snoring. We tried everything and we found one thin that is natural that worked for his snoring. I can’t wait to tell you all about the Natural Snoring Remedy that has worked for us! I suggest everyone who wants to try a natural option to try Valor Essential Oil for snoring. Honestly and truly, Essential Oils are the only thing that have really worked for my husband. Thankfully, I can sleep because of this essential oil that helps relieve my husband’s air ways so he can sleep quietly!
The prescription medicine he was using worked pretty well for a while. Most nights it kept him from snoring, but over time it became less and less effective. After a while it was suggested he get a stronger prescription since it didn’t seem to be working as well as it had in the beginning. While the doctor reminded us this was a very small amount of steroids, we just didn’t like the idea of that going up his nose every night, even in very small doses; and now they were suggesting more.
Now I know there are many different reasons for why people snore. My husband was told by his doctor that his was caused by a deviated septum. He was told he could have surgery, but there was only about a 75% chance that would end his snoring. Considering the surgery was only covered at 80% and we would have to pay 20% out of pocket (what are we, billionaires?) we decided to continue to look for a natural snoring remedy.
Well, as many of you know, I finally was worn down by my oil loving friend Renee. I was the skeptic to end all skeptics. Now I hate to be that person that is all…..
Natural Snoring Remedy
Because they don’t. But I can tell you – my husband uses Young Living Valor every night and he does not snore. Just like that. Teensie drop on his temples every night and it has been the end of his snoring. Seriously – world’s easiest natural snoring remedy folks – essential oils.
We thought it was a fluke the first night and then the second. After about a week I was sold out. Hallelujah. I believe.
Harry still thought it was crazy.
“How can a tiny oil dropped on my skin make me not snore? That’s really crazy Babe.” He said.
“I don’t know, but see how I am all nicer to you today, and yesterday, and the day before? Like nicer than I was the week before?” Me
*thinks about it* “Yeah.” Him
“That’s because I got a decent night’s sleep.” Me
“Yeah, but how do you know I didn’t snore? ” Him
“Because your snoring always wakes me up, and this week I went to bed shortly after you did and then I woke up at 6am, because the grizzly bear I typically sleep with has been silenced.” Me
A couple times he tried to not use it and guess what – he snored. He put his natural snoring remedy oils on and guess what? He stopped.
I am no doctor, I am no scientist. I am just a wife who listened to 12 years of snoring every single night and then one day I didn’t anymore, and you just can’t fake that. Natural snoring remedy did that?
I think it is kinda silly when someone blogs about how they made this new change and you come to find out it was only for like a week. I waited on this for nearly two months before I started writing this post. I wanted to make sure it wasn’t a fluke, I wanted to make sure it wasn’t something his deviated septum would eventually overcome. I wanted to make sure that Valor was really providing lasting snoring relief for him. At this point he has been using Valor for nearly 3 months and his experience is it is the easy fix to his snoring problem. I can honestly say he does not snore when he puts Valor on his temples before bedtime!
A bottle of Valor is tiny – but it lasts for a very long time. He has used it every night I was home (I have traveled several days over the last three months, but I was home far more nights than not) and he still has about half a bottle. The bottle costs about $17. The prescription we were using was $20 with our crummy insurance – he typically ran out in less than a month. That is some pretty legit savings for our house! *A reader pointed out shipping is pretty high for one bottle – I actually was not aware of the shipping charge for just one bottle because mine came in a starter kit that had an OK shipping cost. Anyway, I thought I should make a note of it, shipping makes it a bit pricier.*
In our experience, Valor has been more cost effective than the prescription steroid we were using before.
In our experience Valor was more effective than the prescription we were using before. Could your experience be different? Absolutely. Could your experience be the same? There are many other people who have said it was the only thing that has helped them or their partner stop snoring. I would personally give it a try!
Even if it doesn’t work for you – you would be out $17 for trying. (Or less if you buy it wholesale!)
We personally like the smell (combination of Spruce, Rosewood, Blue Tansy, & Frankincense) far more than the medicines he was using before as well.
Anyway, it has been such a simple solution to a chronic issue in our house that I had to pass that information along. I am not one for multi level anything, I am not a hard seller, but I must admit I am a huge believer in oils. If you are looking for a natural remedy to snoring I HIGHLY suggest giving it a try! You can sign up for Young Living here!
If you are struggling with snoring and you want to find a natural snoring remedy I suggest Valor to all of my friends! I am so glad we found Valor and could ditch the medication that only worked ‘so so’ anyway! Pleasant dreams!
* Update – I have received a fair amount of feedback that people would like an option that does not include the Multi Level Marketing aspect – while you can purchase Young Living products only as a consumer (you never have to sell), I still totally get it. Here is an option of the same oil combination (Spruce, Rosewood, Blue Tansy, and Frankincense) as found in Valor (my assumption is it is slightly different amounts, but very close) that several readers have told me also works for them …
* note the “Align”by Eden’s Garden is only slightly less expensive than the Young Living version but it is twice the size. While it is not eligible for Amazon Prime it’s shipping is a little less than Young Living as well. I have not tried Align but when we run out of Valor we plan on using this to save money and it has come highly recommended.
Now I now that there are some folks that just love one particular brand and I won’t dispute your love for one brand over another – BUT certain labels such as “Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade” are actually trademarked phrases by the oil company that puts them on the label. When a company says something like “No other company can say it is ‘certified pure therapeutic grade'” it is NOT necessarily speaking of the quality of the product but the fact that the phrase is trademarked. That’s silly and not worth extra money in my opinion. Now that isn’t to say you might not like one brand’s mix better than another, but it is worth noting in my opinion. I have put in links for Young Living if you want to try to original (which is the only one we have tried) and also for Align which appears to be a very similar product that is much less expensive (but comes with no fancy phrases).
