Sleep Apnea and Valor Essential Oil Blend


Do you sleep with someone who snores, or has sleep apnea?  I do.  My husband could wake the dead, or join them.  My husband was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea in 2008 or 2009.  We purchased a CPAP; the doctor would not let us leave without having one for him to use.  The sleep test told us that for every minute my husband slept, 35 seconds was spent NOT BREATHING.  That’s more time NOT breathing than breathing!




But he’s lived with this all his life.  His dad (I don’t know if he’s been diagnosed officially) has it too!  These men sounds like they are dying when they are sleeping.  Others who have shared sleeping spaces with my husband have absolutely no idea how I sleep through the racket every night.


Jason tried to use the CPAP machine; we visited the doctor a number of times, trying to get the settings correct; tried new and different styles of masks; changed the levels of humidity.  After a year of fits and starts, Jason finally gave up.  He hasn’t even attempted to wear the machine in years.  (And when it burnt in our house fire we never replaced the machine.)


So, I looked in my Reference Guide for Essential Oils to see if there were an oils / blends suggested for sleep apnea.  There was!!!


Valor 15 ml 3429

Valor Essential Oil Blend. 


Valor® is an empowering combination of therapeutic-grade essential oils that works with both the physical and spiritual aspects of the body to increase feelings of strength, courage, and self-esteem in the face of adversity. Renowned for its strengthening qualities, Valor enhances an individual’s internal resources. It has also been found to help energy alignment in the body.

New Valor Roll-On

The Reference Guide to Essential Oils says to use 6 drops on each foot every night.  When we are too tired, or just simply forget, it’s not long into the night that I am waking Jason up to put Valor on his feet. Without the Valor, Jason has what I call a “death snore”.  When I imitate the sound, the children roar with laughter, so I’ll spare you that, but I can’t sleep as well when he’s in “death snore” mode.


At first, Jason didn’t notice the difference from one day to the next; he was still tired all the time.  Until one night I actually got through the whole night when he hadn’t applied the oil, he realized what a difference it was making for him.  Whenever he slowed down that day, he was falling asleep – at the table, on the couch, while talking with the kids or me.  Since then, he’s really made a point to apply Valor to his feet each and every night.

What is Sleep Apnea? (National Heart Lung and Blood Institute)

American Sleep Apnea Association I have not explored this site; when we were researching J’s diagnosis, I didn’t find it; I will be interested to see what they have available now!

Wikipedia – Sleep Apnea One thing that caught my eye on this site is an alternative treatment – learn to play the didgeridoo. (2005 study)

  • Dear Justourthoughts,
    This question may be a little off-topic, I have been suffering with sleep apnea for months now. After waiting three stressful weeks for the machine to arrive, I used it but only managed to get 3 hours of sleep. I also noticed, that before I had the machine my average time spent sleeping decreased. Tonight I am fully awake and I cannot sleep at all. Is it possible to have sleep apnea and insomnia together? I have serious depression already, so I think that this is a logical explanation. What do I do?

  • I would like to try VALOR for my sleep apnia. Where can I purchase a small test amount. I need to make sure it works before I jump in feet first. No pun intended

    I totally agree with comments above Valor Essential Oil works alot better on Sleep Apnea than the annoying CPAP mask. I could not get the mask to fit right without leaking area when I moved during the night. I had a lot of trouble sleeping with the mask. My Dad is 70 he had Sleep Apnea his whole and never used CPAP. Before Valor I was not productive at work, was very sleepy during the day, was depressed etc. With Valor I sleep much better, I more productive at work, not sleep during the day and not depressed. Thank God my wife turned me on to essential oils.

  • If you are out of Valor you can also diffuse Cedarwood for your sleep apnea. It turned my husband’s sleeping habits around.
