AMAZING Snoring Cure!!!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 4 April 2020
I got this product 2 days ago and am writing a review hoping it will help some frustrated couple out there. If your partner snores, it's horrific. If it's happening to you, you know. So much emotional frustration and tension over an issue that is no one's fault, yet a total sleep destroyer.
So my man and I tried many things. Finally resigned to rotating between nasal strips (which help only some, and only when perfectly placed), and ear plugs for me (finally found some that muffle, but none of them block it out entirely). My man has a long history of respiratory weakness, and eucalyptus oi is supposed to be awesome for that. So we got a diffuser for the bedroom and started running strong eucalyptus radiata all night to help him. I was surprised to notice a slight lessening of the snoring volume with the eucalyptus (it has a strong menthol smell).
I've since gotten way into essential oils, self-taught. I'm thrilled with all of the practical uses they have (first aid, etc). Wasn't keen to try thyme because I'm not a huge thyme fan in cooking. Just makes me think of spaghetti sauce. Well, in my research to help hubby with other health issues, I came across thyme being recommended for lungs and immunity. So two nights ago, I fixed up a potent half eucalyptus, half thyme diffuser blend (about 10 drops each for a small bedroom, with the diffuser placed on his side of the bed). Went to bed with my ear plugs at the ready. Was absolutely shocked when he was SILENT the whole night. NO SNORING. Well, that seemed too good to be true. The next day, hubby took a nap by himself, no diffuser. Popped in to check on him and he was snoring per usual. That night, fired up my half and half blend again (eucalyptus & thyme). NO SNORING. This time I listened closely to his breathing. It's like the thyme is relaxing whatever part makes that flapping/constricted sound because he was breathing in and out with far less strain. Noise aside, as a wife who really loves her man, I want him to breathe well. To me, snoring is like a sound of choking. Seems to me that no snoring has got to mean better oxygen delivery and better sleep. Historically my man sleeps lousy, waking up many times. I'm thinking if he gets better oxygen, he'll sleep longer. Anyhow, I didn't want to raise false hopes, so I did a few more experiments. This morning, after running all night, the aroma of the thyme and eucalyptus was very depleted. He began snoring again. I snuck out of bed and replenished the oils just to see. The snoring STOPPED. Later on, we woke up and he turned off the diffuser as we were getting ready to actually get out of bed. But then he drifted off again while the diffuser was still off. Within 5 minutes, he started snoring again. So there is no doubt in my mind that the thyme is a key ingredient here. But the part that I am still blown away by is how effectively it stops the snoring. When he's on his back, he's always the worst, and even with thyme his breathing becomes more strained and small attempts at snoring start happening. So I just have him turn on his side, and SILENCE. Thyme is a relationship and sleep saver!! It smells a bit green, and actually doesn't make me think of spaghetti sauce, so it's doable. There are countless blend opportunities, and you could easily bring this with you to a hotel and put a lot of the oil in some kind of dish to diffuse it without a machine. So this has many possibilities. I am thrilled. And clearly this brand is putting out a quality product, given what I've shared. I really hope this helps someone.
