August 15, 2011 – If you or a loved one ever had to deal with snoring, you know how frustrating it can be to get a good night’s sleep. Not only can snoring be frustrating, it can also be dangerous. Not getting enough sleep is harmful to your health and daytime drowsiness can be more dangerous than you think!
How Snoring is Dangerous to Your Health
If you aren’t getting enough sleep your body is not able to regain it’s strength and keep a strong immune system. You need to be operating at optimal levels to fight of diseases and illnesses and lack of sleep will only hurt you in the long run.
If snoring is keeping you awake at night, you are likely to be suffering from daytime drowsiness and that can also be quite dangerous. Operating machinery or a vehicle presents dangers if you are not alert and doing daily routines that require alertness will suffer as well.
High blood pressure, anxiety, and decreased emotional state are some of the health risks that snoring can present.
Treating Snoring Naturally With Essential Oils
I have read many articles on using natural essential oils to treat snoring conditions and one thing always stands out: Using a combination of essential oils. It would seem that just one essential oil isn’t as effective as a combination, so be sure to find something that uses many essential oils.
Personally, I like to stick with Snoreox, a blend of essential oils mixed in with reusable rocks. Simply open the jar at night, shake and let the natural fragrance fill the room. When the rocks lose their scent, I add my own blend using a couple drops of Chamomile, Peppermint, Marjoram and Lavender.
Benefits of Using Natural Essential Oils to Stop Snoring
There are many devices on the market to help stop snoring but they are often very costly, take awhile to custom make and can be messy and invasive. Essential oils are pleasant and non-invasive and not nearly as costly as stop snoring devices.
By getting a good night’s rest you will be able to function better the next day and keep your immune system functioning strong. Many couples opt for separate rooms (if available) and needless to say, that can put a very large strain on a relationship.
