Cleanse your Nasal Passages
The less easy you breathe, the more you snore. A blocked nose ceases free flow of air through the nostrils that further creates vacuum and leads to snoring. However, explicitly clearing your nose will cleanse your throat and help you breathe easy.
Drink Warm Beverages
Warm beverages efficiently cover the trachea walls. Drinks such as honey and warm water, a glass of hot milk with a pinch of turmeric and pepper, green tea and organic tulsi tea prepares you for a sound sleep.
Chamomile tea is a mild sedative, which will help you soothe your mind and get a sound sleep. Ginger Ale, also gives you relief from snoring. Boil fresh Ginger in water and add sugar. Drinking this mixture will relax your throat muscles effectively.
A humidifier is an appliance that increases moisture in the house. Dryness irritates the membranes in the nose and throat, thus causing snoring. However, keeping bedroom air moist expels the arid air. Put on the device before sleeping and let it push the dryness out. The best one is a Vaporizer that boils water and releases steam into the room. It is a low cost appliance and best suited for household use.
Keep Your Head High
Sleeping with your head in a higher position (four inches above body) empower your tongue and jaw to move forward. This prevents frequent mouth opening and stops snoring.
Specially designed pillows keep your head in a higher position and avoid your neck from crimping.
Sleep on One Side
Sleeping straight on back has a gravitational effect on snoring. Gravity makes tongue tissues to drop and obstruct the air passage. The most effective way is sewing a tennis ball at the back of your pajamas. In deep sleep, it would discourage you from sleeping straight and force sleeping on one side.
A Pair of Nasal Strips

Comfortable enough that you don’t even feel something on your nose is working to suppress the loud noise. Start wearing them today and use regularly.
Open Face Chin Straps
Snoring Chin straps resemble a monkey cap, open in front, covering your chin and stretch over your head. Specially designed to keep your mouth closed while you sleep, they force breathing from nose and subsequently clear the blockages. Chin traps in different sizes and fabrics are available.
Besides these, little lifestyle changes such as cutting down on your smoking and alcohol will significantly control snoring. Moreover exercising regularly or practicing Yoga improves blood circulation that indirectly check snoring tendency. Consulting a doctor is wise, but home remedies produce better results, always.
