Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


I am notorious in my family for my snoring, sometimes waking people in another bedroom down the hall, even with doors closed. I've tried using nasal dilator devices and adhesive nasal strips, no difference.

When sharing a bedroom during out of town sports tournaments with my daughter's ringette team, my daughter tried using foam ear plugs (didn't work) so she finally put her iPod earbuds in and cranked up her music which for some reason she could sleep through!

I started using the Breathe Again roll-on blend before I went to sleep, rolling it on my chest, the side of my neck and on my pillow since it doesn't stain.

We recently shared a hotel room at a family reunion and when I asked my daughter in the morning whether my snoring kept her up, she hadn't even noticed it at all during the night! My wife also reports that my snoring is MUCH less and no longer wakes her up.

The roll-on is also a very convenient way to apply it compared to applying the oil with fingers, and prevents accidentally rubbing it in your eyes.

I also seem to sleep better and awake more rested.
