There is no shortage of free advice in this world, and the website AltUse offers plenty of suggestions for alternative uses of common household products. One of the suggestions is the use of olive oil as a cure for snoring.
Many things can cause an individual to snore, including a deviated septum. Excessive tissue in the back of the nose or throat can lead to a partially blocked airway that causes the sound of snoring. If it becomes totally blocked, this may lead to sleep apnea.
Can olive oil cure snoring? It ultimately depends on the cause. I suppose the theory is that if you moisten the tissues in your throat by sipping a small amount of olive oil, the contact will be reduced. Therefore the air may move through more smoothly and you'll snore less. I rather doubt this will be very effective for most people. However, olive oil has other benefits, including improved heart health, so it may not be a worthless endeavor.
