So much is being said these days about buying and eating organic foods. The world is becoming more aware of the dangers of chemicals being used to grow these foods and their effects on our bodies. That’s why we see more and more organic food choices popping up in our groceries stores, and even in some high-end restaurants. But, what about the other chemicals used in our every day lives? What about everything else that we touch, wear, and even sleep on? Do those things need to be organic too? A little research suggests yes.
What is an Organ Mattress?
What is an organic or natural mattress? I didn’t know myself until recently. It’s been around longer than what you may be sleeping on right now. Organic mattresses are comprised of natural materials such as rubber, pure wool, organic (chemical free) cotton and chemical-free bamboo. These mattresses are made by using age-old practices and pure materials from around the world. Many times the materials used as a base for these mattresses are harvested the old fashioned way, by hand. Manufacturers go to great lengths to keep these mattresses pure and whole. They believe in their products and want to protect your health.
As with any organic or natural choice, there are health benefits to sleeping on an organic mattress. Because they’re comprised of natural components, they are naturally hypoallergenic. In fact, organic mattress makers tout these natural wonders as mold, mildew, and dust-mite resistant. That is great news for people who suffer with allergies, hay fever, or any type of respiratory problems. Another benefit from organic mattresses is that they shut the front door on bed bugs. The bugs are a worldwide pest growing more and more pestilent every day, but cannot breed in an organic mattress.
Comfort of Nature
So you see the health benefits to this age-old wonder, but I know there’s a looming question on your mind. Are organic mattresses comfortable, or does it feel like I’m sleeping on a rock? Actually, these natural mattresses come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and densities. There are no metal coils inside these mattresses. They’re made of natural rubber and covered in a soft natural padding made from organic cotton.
Similar to a Memory Foam mattress, the organic mattresses provide an almost motion-free night. The materials absorb any moment your partner might stir up getting in or out of bed during the night. The organic materials are also durable with a life expectancy of twenty years or more. The durable rubber won’t cave to significant body impressions so your mattress should stay as firm as the day it was delivered. Manufacturers ask you to rotate your new organic mattress once or twice a year.
Giving organic mattresses a second look is certainly worth your time, especially if you have children or you, yourself, suffers from respiratory issues. The natural elements are long lasting and will be a good investment in
