Natural ways to stop snoring
Snoring affects many men and women in the UK.
Not only can it be irritating and uncomfortable, for many couples the problem is enough to force them to sleep is separate bedrooms.
This can be incredibly disruptive to a relationship - affecting intimacy, confidence and sex life.
It can make the person snoring feel embarrassed and guilty for something they have no control over. The partner may feel irritated and anxious about their lack of sleep.
There are some simple natural tips that can help stop snoring.
Changing your sleep position
Although it is difficult to change a lifetime habit of sleeping in a certain way, it is thought that sleep position has the biggest effect on the level of snoring.
Many people have found that sleeping on their side reduces the amount they snore - for the majority of individuals it completely stops them snoring.
Sleeping on your back is the main cause of snoring as the base of your tongue and soft palate move to the back of your mouth. This causes a vibration.
Although slim people can snore as well, people who are overweight are more likely to snore.
Of course the way to lose those extra pounds is by exercising more and eating more healthily.
A simple and effective exercise that helps you lose weight without the pain is yoga.
Avoid alcohol and tobacco
Both of these vices have been known to increase noise levels at bed time.
Alcohol in particular is a sedative which reduces the resting tone of the muscles in the back of your throat. When you’ve drank a few hours before sleeping, you are far more likely to snore.
Of course, many individuals love a bed time drink. Instead of reaching for the wine, try a relaxing herbal tea.
As well as stopping snoring, these drinks have been developed to treat and assist with a vast array of other conditions.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
