What is it: Sina Room Vaporizing Jar
$26.95 (100 ml)

There is no way a jar of oil will clear my loud, annoying and regular snoring habit.
OK, I will admit I was skeptical when I first received this product, partly because I was in denial about my own snoring habits. But after accepting the truth, I thought I would give it a try. Instructions are simple: shake the jar before bed time, let the oils fill up your room, and go to sleep. In the morning, you should close the jar again. The oils help reduce inflammation of the mucus membrane and other tissues in your nose, basically opening up your airways and making you avoid mouth breathing.
After testing out the product alone, the first thing I noticed was how less groggy I was every morning — the oils definitely opened up my nose. I found it was a lot easier to wake up as well and for someone who doesn't like the smell of oils, it was kind of soothing. For the actual snoring, it didn't get rid of it, but my snores weren't as loud as usual. My breathing was lighter and wasn't disruptive.
The main con is that it didn't actually stop the snoring, but I wasn't expecting it to either. The only other complaint I have is the jar (and your hands, table, etc.) can get super oily — especially if you drop it or shake it while opened.
For anyone with a snoring problem, I get it, it can be embarrassing. But if something as simple as opening a jar beside your bed before going to sleep can help decrease the sound, I say, go for it!
