I have found the answer to my husband's snoring. A few weeks back I searched the 'Joy eGroup' archives and found some testimonials for what has worked for others for snoring. But these things didn't work for my husband, or were minimally effective. Peppermint in a glass of water didn't work. Thyme oil or Valor on the bottom of the feet didn't work. He found temporary relief gargling with Thieves mouthwash, but the effect wore off after a couple of hours.

One night he was snoring so bad, as he also has a bit of a cold and was over-exhausted from work. I put Cypress oil on his throat gland area. I did this as I recently heard on a tape to put it over swollen glands when you are sick. His gland weren't swollen (that I knew of) but I tried it for the snoring, and it worked wonderfully! He slept so quietly that I had to wonder if he was still alive! (just kidding) On the worst nights now he has to do a sedond application when the snoring starts to recur. It is lovely to have a peaceful sleep again.
