If you’ve ever slept next to someone who snores or have woken up with a sore throat from snoring, I have something you’re going to want: my DIY Anti-Snore Salve!
Featuring all-natural ingredients and a quick 5-minute prep time, you finally have a solution to help open up those airways and get a great, restful night’s sleep.
So, what makes this recipe so effective?
First, my DIY Anti-Snore Salve features eucalyptus essential oil, which is known to help fight congestion.  This is due to the main active component in eucalyptus oil, 1,8 cineole, which has been shown to help relieve nasal obstruction due to sinusitis. 
Eucalyptus oil is also effective in breaking up mucous in the nose and throat.
Meanwhile, thyme oil has been known to not only fight inflammation but also contain anti-microbial properties and even help relieve coughs! And since we know that congestion and colds can cause snoring, this is especially useful.
Finally, the cedarwood oil has been shown in several human and animal studies to promote relaxation and restorative sleep, which can help to hinder snoring. 
Now that you know why the main ingredients in this DIY Anti-Snore Salve are so effective, let’s give it a try. Keep reading for the recipe.
