DIY Snore Relief Jelly for a Better Night’s Sleep

Keep this 4-ingredient Snore Relief Gel near your bedside to open up your sinuses and give you a better night’s sleep.

Snoring plagues millions of people and can disrupt sleep for those who share a bedroom with them. While it’s often considered a common annoyance, snoring can be indicative of an underlying sleeping disorder associated with a high body mass, depression, and negative sleeping patterns.

But before undergoing any extreme methods to correct it, try using this nightly gel remedy to gently curb your snoring without any adverse side effects.

Eucalyptus oil is an antibacterial ingredient that can be found in many over-the-counter nasal sprays, humidifiers, and seasonal allergy products. It’s been used for hundreds of years to treat respiratory issues in eastern medicine and is an anti-inflammatory that could help alleviate the underlying causes of snoring.

To make your bedside snore gel, heat water over medium heat until steaming hot.

Add in a green tea bag and steep for two minutes to allow for a stronger potency in aroma and color. Gradually whisk gelatin into the hot water and add in the eucalyptus essential oil.

Pour the mixture into an eight-ounce glass jar, cover, and refrigerate for one hour. When ready to use, remove the lid before bedtime and inhale the aroma from the jar. This will help open up your sinuses and improve your breathing.
