Natural Bedding / Summer Cool

Natural bedding is so soft and comfortable and also cool.  It breathes unlike mainstream poly fiber sheets and bedding. Natural fiber bedding, natural bedding is so much better for your health, your sleep and the feel is like non other.  I love getting into my bed at night and feeling the softness of organic cotton sheets.

Mainstream bedding can be so toxic and scratchy it can cause sleep issues from the at time undetectable odor of the poly fiber fabric.  Open up a new pack of poly fiber fabric bedding and you can smell the chemicals.  Non organic cotton sheets have many toxic chemicals as well, not only in the production of the sheets, but the farming of the non organic cotton. Cotton farmers have to use tons of chemicals to keep the cotton from being over taken by pests.  This process alone is laden with pesticides.

Imagine spraying your bed with pesticide before lying down to sleep at night.  Not a inviting idea right?  The price of Organic cotton sheets and natural bedding is out weighed by the health benefits of keeping your bed , chemical free.

Having a clean, toxic free bedroom is important, organic bedrooms are the ideal. Our sleep is important and the quality of sleep has a great impact on the quality of our health.

Natural bedding includes, natural fiber pillows such as eco wool, raised without chemicals, organic cotton pillows.  Chemicals in our bedding have been linked to allergies, asthma and MCS.  Taking the time to purchase natural bedding and providing yourself and your children with a organic bedroom is a priority. After all, if we don’t sleep well it takes a toll on our quality of life.

Buying an Organic Mattress

Buying an Organic Mattress

There are a few things to keep in mind when deciding to buy an Organic mattress.  If you have medical conditions, it would be good to speak to a medical Dr. or a Chiropractor about what might be good for your back.

Do research before you buy. Not all Natural mattresses or Organic mattress are created equal.  You need to know what you are buying the contents of the mattress and chemicals, if any, that could cause issue with allergies, asthma etc.

One of the biggest complaints I hear from people is that they just purchased an expensive mainstream mattress and now they can’t sleep on it due to the odor from off gassing. They then have an expensive mattress they cannot use.

Check out the complaints and the reviews to make sure what you are buying is highly rated.

Ask about return policies to make sure that if your unhappy with your mattress, you can return it.  Our mattresses come with a guarantee.

Check the warranty on the mattress, good quality mattresses have a good warranty.

Remember that firm mattresses aren’t always best, depends on your body type, weight and your health condition, same with pillow top mattresses.  Marketing campaigns will convince you that you need a top of the line pillow top mattress, not necessarily true.  Studies suggest that light weight people don’t need a pillow top mattress. Their weight doesn’t weigh them down enough to get to the underlying support, heavier adults might need more cushion under their body. I’ve heard many complaints of people buying the memory foam mattresses thinking they would be soft, only to find out they are too firm, and uncomfortable.

Not all Organic mattresses are created equal.  Check out the mattress contents, reviews and ratings before buying an Organic mattress. You investment will be worthwhile.

Why Are Organic Mattresses Important

When thinking about going green and living a healthier lifestyle it can get overwhelming the amount of information and choices.  There is so much to choose from and where do you begin? The first thing to take into consideration is your budget.  Make a list of the most important areas of your home and life that need change.  As a parent our children’s health is most important. From the moment we hold them, they become the most important part of our lives. As a parent we want to be educated on the choices that are most important to their well-being. Infants are very susceptible to their environment. Children spend as much as 14 hours a day sleeping.  Because of the toxicity of mattresses whether you co-sleep, have a bassinet or crib you need a good, healthy, non-toxic sleeping environment for your newborn as their immune systems, lungs and brain are still developing. Organic mattresses are the most healthiest you can provide for your child.  Not only Organic Mattress but one that is fire retardant, safe and non-toxic.  Some may argue that even Organic Mattresses have chemicals for fire retardant. Ours uses natural sources for fire retardant and we offer the healthiest green mattresses, without the use of chemicals.  So whether or not your shopping for a Organic Baby Crib Mattress, a Organic Queen Mattress, or a Organic Bassinet or cradle pad, we have what you need.  Remember that mattresses can be the most important purchase you make as a parent.  Chemicals from mattresses have be attributed to SIDS, Asthma and Allergies among other health issues.  Give your family the very best in Organic Mattresses.
