What Are The Benefits of Organic Pillows?
A safer and more earth friendly approach is to replace your current pillow with something that is made from natural organic fabrics, such as cotton, wool or latex.
If you are wondering why you would choose organic over other fabrics, there are a number of benefits that you may like to consider.
These benefits include:
While you are sleeping you body is in contact with your bedding for around eight to ten hours each night. So you need to be sure that what you are using is safe for your health.
The effect of producing organic textiles is kinder to our environment.
Organic products are a good natural health choice as they do not impact the environment in a detrimental way, so you know you are doing your bit for the health of the planet.
Organic bedding is hypoallergenic, so it is a good choice if you are allergic or sensitive. It is important to choose a product that will not cause you any type of reaction that will effect your health.
Disadvantages of Polyester Pillow
Polyester pillows sometimes feel lumpy and don’t offer the comfort level of a down or foam pillow. This synthetic material may feel hot or uncomfortable on a warm day, as it does not breathe well. If you’re sensitive to chemicals, another pillow may be a better choice. Check the care tag to see if the pillow is treated with flame retardants. Polyester pillows need to be replaced every year or two, as the fibers inside compress and make the pillows flat and uncomfortable. This type of pillow also can harbor dust mites.
Old Pillows Hold Dust and Dust Mites! (TIME TO CHANGE YOUR OLD PILLOWS)
You also need to be careful if you are buying a latex pillow, as some latex is a man-made synthetic material, that is made from petrochemicals. Some may also be partly synthetic latex mixed with natural latex.
If you are having trouble sleeping, a new pillow that is made from a safe allergy free may be the answer to how to sleep better.
Pillows can hold a lot of dust, so if your pillows are old and heavy you may want to consider replacing them.
If you have been to the specialist and have been told that you have an allergy to dust mites, you may decide that it is necessary for you to replace them. A good alternative is to substitute new allergy safe bedding.
Always check that pillow is made using 100% cotton, many sellers mix cotton with polyester.
