This is to every one who would like the anti snore potpoouri that I had mentioned. This is a really busy week end for me so I don't have time to check out the recipe until Monday-ish. I put a lot of different things in it and I want to make sure I odn't forget anything.

I have to tell you that altho' I feel it does help, what helps best are ear plugs and a closed door between he and me at night...except I get lonely and can't hear the alarm.


Anti snore potpourri seems to help and I am just looking into the jar to let you know what is in it. Since we all have different amounts we want to make I will use "pts" (parts) as the measure, so if you want to make lots...your 1 part can be a cup or it can be 1 tablespoon.

2 pts rosemary leaves
2 pts bruised dried juniper berries
5 pts eucalyptus leaves
2 parts linden leaves (soother...always good in sleep pillows)
2 pts penny royal
4 pts peppermint
2 pts cloves
1 pt anise seed
3 pts pachoullie
3 pts pine needles
some cedar shavings

soak about 1 tablespoon (15 milleliters) of chipped dried orris root with a few drops each of the following oils: pachoullie, cedar, peppermint, rosemary, eucalyptus and pine.

When the orris root is completely saturated mix in with the dried herbs seal for about a week and keep sealed during the day. Open it and set in on the snorer's bedside table.

Good luck.
