Blocked nose using CPAP.
The Vicks didn't really work that well for me the second night. 

I might try your oil idea, but I will put eucalyptus oil on the cotton ball - seeing as that is what I have on hand. 

If I keep the room temperature up a little by leaving the reverse cycle aircon turned on to take the chill off the air in the room it seems to reduce the clogging a bit, but my Mrs. doesn't like the heater being on.  [this from a woman who came from a tropical country and loves high humidity and very warm temperatures Oh-jeez ]
If I can find a way to breathe at night without causing annoyance to the wife it would be a bonus. 

We already spend five nights a week in separate rooms, the heater will help me, but ensure we sleep in separate rooms seven nights a week... I'm seriously thinking of becoming single, CPAP has really ruined our personal relationship by being the 'final nail in the coffin' of a marriage that was already struggling.  Annoyed-and-disappointed Hate-cpap
