Snoring sometimes sounds like a comical sleeping habit, but it’s usually more serious than a burdensome and noisy habit! It can be the true test between being patient and committing a felony, and sometimes the line separating the two is tested to the absolute limit.

Why do People Snore?

Generally, snoring occurs when your throat structure becomes relaxed during sleep and vibrates. When your breath moves through your relaxed throat it causes vibrating noises, and snoring!

How to Stop Snoring

So far, there isn’t a be all and end all cure for snoring, but there are a couple of lifestyle changes you can make to lessen your snoring or at the very least make it less severe!


6 Home Snoring Remedies:

1. Olive Oil

Olive oil is soothing and has anti-inflammatory agents, which will reduce inflammation and promote a smooth passage for breathing. Have a spoonful of olive oil before bed!

2. Steam

Place a damp towel on the back of your head and lean over a pot of boiling water. The mini sauna for your face will help relieve congestion in your sinuses, making for clear airways!

3. Peppermint

This mint will reduce the swelling in your nasal passage and throat. Just add 1-2 drops into some hot water before bed.

4. Turmeric

Turmeric has potent anti-inflammatory properties, which will help reduce inflammation that may be blocking your throat and sinuses and causing you to snore. Take turmeric orally in your tea!


5. Ghee Butter

Ghee butter has the power to unblock your sinuses and nasal passages, which will make for airways and less snoring. Take ghee butter orally in your tea before bed.

6. Cardamom

There are expectorants and decongestants within cardamom that will make breathing much easier when you sleep. Add 1-2 teaspoons in warm water before going to bed.

Try an Anti-Snoring Juice Recipe


This recipe works to decrease mucus buildup and creates more space for easy breathing.


  • 2 apples
  • 2 carrots
  • 1/4 to 1/2 lemon
  • 1 inch “knuckle” of ginger


Combine all ingredients into a juicer and juice (may help to chop ginger first). Enjoy 1-2 hours before going to bed.

Remember, although snoring seems trivial, it can cause sleep loss for you and whoever is in a close proximity to you! As you age, snoring can get worse and worse so the sooner you find out what’s causing it and how to stop it, the better!
