How To Choose The Best Anti Snoring Spray?

Anti snoring sprays work either by lubricating the throat or opening up the nasal passage.

Their effectiveness varies from person to person, depending on the cause of the snoring, sleeping environment, and the severity of the snoring problem.

Some people find that these sprays completely eliminate snoring, while others get a reduction in snoring frequency and volume.

In this buying guide, we review the best anti snoring sprays in the UK. They are not guaranteed to work for everyone. You may need to try several sprays before you find one that works, or combine a spray with another snoring aid such as a chin strap or nasal strips.

Another thing to note is that these sprays, and other anti snoring aids (e.g. pillows), do not cure snoring. They only help to manage it. For long term treatment of snoring, you’ll have to consider something like surgery.

Key Considerations When Choosing an Anti Snoring Spray

A. Type of Spray

There are two main types of anti snoring sprays: nasal sprays and throat sprays.

Nasal sprays work by clearing your nose to make it easier to breathe, which in turn stops or reduces snoring.

There are different types of nasal sprays. The right one depends on the cause of nasal blockage or stuffiness.

Saline sprays reduce inflammation and mucus buildup, antihistamine sprays clear stuffiness caused by allergies, and anticholinergic help with a runny nose.

Throat sprays target the soft tissue in the mouth and throat that vibrates to cause snoring. It lubricates this tissue with oil, which reduces the severity and volume of snoring.

With both nasal and throat sprays, the anti-snoring effect lasts for just a few hours, usually overnight. So you have to re-apply the next evening before you sleep.

B. Is It Medicated?

Check if the spray is medicated or not.

Medicated sprays tend to be more effective at reducing inflammation and clearing your airways. But you have to be careful about using them if you have a medical condition, you are breastfeeding, or you are pregnant.

If you buy a medicated anti snoring spray, clear it with your doctor before using it.

Non-medicated sprays such as saline and essential oil sprays are safe for most people, including children. But they may have limited effectiveness.

C. Effectiveness

Finally, check how effective a particular spray is.

Generally, anti snoring aids are hit and miss. No single product is guaranteed to work, and you often have to go through several to land on a good one.

That said, some snoring sprays will be obviously ineffective. If the spray has a very low rating and most customers complain it doesn’t work, try another one.

A good spray may not completely stop snoring, but it can reduce how often and loudly you snore and that can significantly improve your sleep quality and that of your partner.

For best results, we recommend combining an anti snoring spray with other changes and habits that can help reduce snoring such as staying hydrated, sleeping on your side, losing weight, and avoiding alcohol close to bedtime.

Best Anti Snoring Sprays: Top 5 Reviews

1. Snoreeze Snoring Relief Throat Spray Triple Pack

The Snoreeze Snoring Relief spray is a throat spray. It works by lubricating the soft tissue at the back of the throat, which reduces dryness and vibration.

Many reviewers say the spray stops snoring completely.

Others say they did not notice a complete stop to snoring when their partners used the spray. Rather, the Snoreeze spray reduces the severity and volume of snoring.

In other words, their partners snored less often and less loudly, such that the snoring does not wake them up any more.

The spray comes with a pump to make it easier to apply it on the back of the throat. Spray it once before bedtime to enjoy snoring relief for about 8 hours.

To make the spray’s effect last long, the Snoreeze spray comes in the form of a thermo-gel that reacts to heat. When it warms up, it thickens to keep it from running down the throat. This keeps the active ingredients in contact with the throat tissue.

This pack includes three spray bottles. Each bottle is good for 50 nights.

What we like about it:

  • Works for most snorers – stops or reduces snoring.
  • Easy to apply.
  • Effects last all night.
  • Good value for money – the 3-pack is enough for 5 months of use.

2. Professnore Anti Snoring Relief Spray

The Professnore anti snoring spray is another good choice if you are looking for a throat spray.

The Professnore spray is a non-medicated natural oil blend that coats the soft tissue in your throat to reduce snoring.

It’s easy to use with a long nozzle that delivers the spray to the right spot at the back of your throat. It has a mild minty flavour so you don’t have to worry about sleeping with a bad taste in your mouth.

Reviews for the effectiveness of the Professnore anti-snoring spray are mixed. A majority of people say it stops snoring or reduces how loudly someone snores.

But a good number of customers also say they didn’t see any results.

So results may vary depending on the exact nature of your snoring. For the best chances of success, make sure you follow the instructions on the label.

Shake the bottle before spraying, then spray it on the back of your throat three times.  Do not eat or drink anything half an hour before application, and do not eat or drink anything afterwards.

If you drink water or eat something after application, spray it again.

What we like about it:

  • Non-medicated – safe to use for most people.
  • Most users say it works.
  • Anti snoring effect lasts through the night.
  • Nice minty flavour.

3. Asonor Snoring Nasal Spray

If your snoring is caused by a clogged nose, we recommend the Asonor snoring nasal spray. It works by clearing up your nose and throat. This makes it easier to breathe and reduces or stops snoring.

Similar to other sprays, the reviews are mixed. The good news is that a majority of buyers say they saw a difference after using Asonor.

The spray either stopped snoring completely, or made it much more tolerable for partners and other people in the house.

But there’s also a decent number of customers who say they did not see much difference.

Based on the number of positive reviews, the Asonor nasal spray is worth a try for people who struggle with a stuffed or clogged nose.

If, however, the cause of your snoring is in your throat (e.g. enlarged throat tissue), try a throat spray instead.

Another recommendation from several users is to use the Asonor nasal spray along with nasal strips.

The spray is easy to use. Just pump 4-5 sprays into each nostrils before you sleep. It can feel a bit uncomfortable at first as it streams into your nostrils and down your throat, but the sensation is short lived.

The spray has no scent or taste.

The anti-snoring effects of Asonor last just one night, so you’ll need to use it every evening.

What we like about it:

  • Works for people with nasal blockage.
  • Easy to use.
  • Small pocket-size bottle that’s perfect for travelling.

4. Nuonove Snoring Nasal Spray

Nuonove is another good choice if you are looking for a nasal spray to clear a stuffy or blocked nose.

Spray it 1-2 times in each nostril half an hour before bedtime. This gives the spray time to clear your airways.

Because it consists mostly of natural ingredients, the Nuonove nasal spray is safe for most people and even children.

When using it with kids, spray only one time in each nostril.

What we like about it:

  • Clears nasal airways.
  • Easy to use.
  • Safe for kids.

5. Helps Stop Snoring Throat Spray

The Helps Stop Snoring throat spray contains a blend of eleven essential oils including peppermint, sage, clove, eucalyptus and others.

These oils lubricate the soft tissue in your throat, reducing how much they vibrate when you breathe in your sleep.

The essential oils also have a breath-freshening effect.

Surprisingly, despite the essential oil formulation, many users say the spray has a bad taste. But the taste doesn’t last long in your mouth.

How well the Helps Stop Snoring spray works varies from person to person. Some people find that it completely stops snoring, while others snore less often and more quietly. But in others, it has no effect.

The pack includes two small 9ml bottles.

What we like about it:

  • Reduces or stops snoring in some people.
  • Cheaper than most snoring sprays.
  • Natural essential oil formulation.
