If you find it difficult to sleep at night, you should start searching for the cause. Getting a good night’s sleep is absolutely vital, but sometimes, people go for months or even years without sleeping well. Sometimes, in order to change one has to be sick and tired of being sick and tired.
What’s keeping you awake? For some, it’s allergies. Some people are allergic to the various materials used in their mattress. Sleeping on this mattress causes their allergies to flare up, leading to a lack of good, quality sleep. Organic mattresses, on the other hand, contain no chemicals, pesticides, or other harsh materials. This allows you to rest without suffering from allergies, thus making it possible to sleep again.
What Are Organic Mattresses Made Of?
Mattresses in general are made from many different materials, but organic mattresses are made from very special few items. Latex, wool and cotton. Wool is gathered from sheep from different parts of the world, although Argentina and New Zealand seem to be of exceptional quality. Once the wool is sheared from the sheep, it is cleaned using a non-toxic soap. This soap contains absolutely no harsh chemicals or anything that will cause you to have an allergic reaction. Another material used in organic mattresses is natural latex rubber. Organic cotton is also used in many organic mattresses. Latex rubber, wool, and cotton all replace things like polyurethane, memory foam, and other types of materials designed for comfort. Natural latex rubber is safe, good for the environment, and can provide just as much comfort, if not more, than your traditional polyurethane or memory foam mattress.
Is an Organic Mattress Always Organic?
Just because something says it’s organic doesn’t necessarily mean it truly is. Since organic has become such a buzzword these days, some companies are calling things organic even when they really are not. You need to make certain the mattress you’re purchasing really is completely organic and doesn’t just contain mostly organic materials. Any mattress that has been treated with a chemical flame retardant is not organic. Likewise, any mattress that contains chemical or synthetic foam, formaldehyde, plastic, polyester, or glue is not organic. Natural or organic memory foam does not exist. Avoid any mattress that contains these materials even if it claims to be an organic mattress.
Supplement Your Organic Mattress with Other Organic Products
Buying an organic mattress may not have that much effect on your sleeping habits if you don’t use other organic products with it. In addition to an organic mattress, you should buy an organic or wool duvet, wool or latex pillows and organic cotton or bamboo sheets. These will add to your overall well being by creating a complete, toxin free sleep environment.
Benefits of Organic Mattresses
In addition to providing relief from allergies, organic mattresses have other benefits as well. They can help with orthopaedic problems and assist you in getting more rest. Organic mattresses are also environmentally friendly. The main benefit, though, is for anyone who suffers from allergies. Many organic mattresses include lanolin, which is part of sheep’s wool. Lanolin naturally repels dust mites, so organic mattresses tend to be cleaner and healthier overall. If you need to get a good night’s sleep but have found that impossible to do on your mattress, try out an organic mattress. You may be surprised at just how much it helps.
