We can’t make the rain go away (And why would we want to!? Flowers and fruit galore, anyone?), but we can sure make the snores (including ones caused by seasonal allergies and colds) go away!
If you or someone you love is a snorer, give this glass jar creation, a DIY snoring stopper, a try. You’ll find that it is the best snore stopper you’ve ever experienced. The reason is that this isn’t JUST helpful for snorers. If you have seasonal allergies or hay fever, tree pollen can trigger symptoms in the late winter or spring.
This snore stopper gel recipe is an all natural remedy-no chemicals! Containing essential oils, it can help those with allergies and sinus to clear their nasal passages that are stuffy and irritated. As a bonus, this snore stopper in a jar eliminates the need for those bothersome adhesive gel pads on a snorer’s nose that disrupts the sleep, not to mention makes the nose sticky.
So, if your family tends to get colds frequently, has allergy issues, or is a snorer, you’ll definitely want to whip up a couple of these DIY snore relief remedies in some glass jars.
Here’s How to Do It.
- 2 packets unflavored gelatin
- 1 Tbsp salt
- 1 cup water, divided
- 2 quality 4 ounce jars with caps
- Marjoram, peppermint, eucalyptus, and lavender essential oils
- Food coloring (optional)
Why Those Oils? Marjoram essential oil is a muscle relaxer and lavender is an overall relaxer, both promoting restful sleep. Peppermint and eucalyptus essential oils are inflammatory agents, which helps clear the airways in the nasal passage.
- Heat 3/4 cup of water in a small pot or pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 Tbsp of salt, and stir until the salt dissolves completely.
- Slowly add the contents of the 2 packets of gelatin to the water, and stir until dissolved.
- Remove the mixture from heat and add the remaining 1/4 cup of water.
- Pour the liquid carefully into your two 4 ounce jars, then add the essential oils. Add 5 drops each of marjoram, peppermint, eucalyptus, and lavender essential oils, for a total of 20 drops in each jar. Add a drop or two of food coloring too, if you’d like (just to make it a bit more visually interesting.)
- Place the jars into your fridge to cool and solidify, then cover with a lid.
Finally, Here’s How to Use It.
- At bedtime, open the jar and hold it near your nose. Take a few deep breaths through your nose, then leave the jar open on your nightstand while you sleep.
- NOTE: As with all gelatin products, higher temperatures can cause this gel to liquefy. Simply stick the jar back in the fridge to make it solidified again.
