Good morning! I’m sitting here, at my kitchen table, fresh as a daisy this morning! Why you may ask? Well……. I slept last night. What a feeling.
You see, along with my own sleep issues, my beloved (herein referred to as Pete) snores like a freight train. Seriously. The walls shake. The house rattles. If we’re watching TV in the living room, and Pete is asleep in our bedroom, we have to turn the TV up considerably to be able to hear what’s going on. When the kids are home, they can hear his snoring in their bedrooms, on the second floor. It’s bad. The kind of snoring that, in the middle of the night, makes you want to smother him with a pillow. Nobody sleeps.
Pete has tried all of the OTC stuff, to no avail.
As many of you know, I use essential oils for everything. I use them every single day. Pete, not so much. He doesn’t need oils, according to him. ha! I read about a remedy for snoring that uses Reflexology points on the foot to apply the oils. So, last night, we experimented – unbeknownst to him.
He was already snoring when I went in to bed. I glanced at the extra pillow. It would have been so easy…. but instead, I reached for the bottle of essential oil, lifted the covers from the bottom, and doused his big toes in it. This took about 3 drops of oil in total (a bottle has 250 drops) I got into bed and I waited. Nothing. Silence.
I was up a few times in the night, as usual. I didn’t hear a thing. I was able to go right back to sleep because he was quiet. This is nothing short of a miracle. Seriously. I can’t believe that I’m saying this out loud but we were actually at the point where we were considering one of us sleeping in another room. Not how I want to live my married life! Essential oil provided an effective, natural solution. Not only can it be used to stop snoring, it can be used to support respiratory health.
This morning, he says “I know I was out when you came to bed but I felt you lift the sheet and I knew what you were doing. Within about a minute, I felt my throat open up, it’s like it relaxed or something. I can’t explain it.” I didn’t dare tell him how close he came to the pillow remedy and his throat closing! Thank you nature for a simple, natural solution to a very serious problem. Sleep is vitally important to your health and it’s something that we’ve been struggling with for years.
