Poor sleep can do more than just perpetuate pesky under-eye circles. Going to bed after a late night of work and Netflix (consider me guilty of both!) can sabotage your metabolism and cause a variety of problems including weight-gain, impaired functioning and even chronic diseases.
If sleep is that important to our health, it makes sense to invest in natural and organic bedding to allow your body to reset without absorbing toxic substances commonly found in synthetic fibers. We spend a third of our lives in bed, and the body absorbs substances through the skin and lungs while we sleep, choosing non-toxic bedding is essential to keeping ourselves healthy.
Some stores like West Elm carry organic sheet sets and duvet covers, and others, like Keetsa, White Lotus Home, Cozy Pure, and Coyuchi carry a vast collection of bedding essentials to keep your bed toxin-free. If you’re thinking of swapping your regular sheets and bedding for safe and natural options, this list of organic bedding picks might help!
Natural Bedding Essentials
Yes, an organic mattress is an investment. But one that’s worth it in the long run. Essentia’s Tatami Mattress uses natural memory foam on top of organic latex for a comforting fit that contours your body.
Duvet + Pillows
Natural materials like wool naturally repel dust mites, mold, mildew and bacteria. Or try a natural memory form if you want more support from your pillow.
One of the easiest ways to go organic with your bedding. Washing once a week in hot water will also help reduce allergens and dust mites.
