My youngest son, Alex was recently diagnosed with severe allergies. I’ve always known he was a little allergy boy, but testing finally confirmed it last week. Everything from peanuts and eggs to environmental allergies. Ugh, where to begin? As an asthmatic myself, I know how important it is to keep our home dust-free but I never really considered our bedding. In the face of this new challenge, I need to consider every possible allergy trigger. Today, my focus will be on organic bedding but especially Why Organic Pillows are Better. Not just for allergies, but for a good night sleep as well!
Me and my Alex:
Bedding and Allergies
Bedding is a popular home for dust mites, a well known trigger of asthma and allergies. YUCK! It makes me feel itchy and gross to think there are little bugs living in my pillows and bed. No wonder I always wheeze and little Alex sneezes all night long. And did you know most standard mattresses are made with petroleum based chemicals, foams, plastics and controversial flame retardants? I’m really becoming intrigued about organic bedding now! I was recently introduced to a great company that offers organic mattresses and pillows, Mountain Air Organic Beds. My experience with them has been incredible. Let me tell you more.
About Mountain Air Organic Beds
Mountain Air Organic Beds offers a variety of natural and organic bedding, from pillows to mattresses. The products they offer are free from: synthetics, petroleum, chemical flame retardants, glue, pesticide and chlorinated tris. All of the products they offer are carefully selected for the health of you and your family. I’ve been personally working with Joyce, the owner of Mountain Air and she is truly passionate about her organic company and the products they offer. This is a wonderful company to buy from and their products are top notch, in my opinion.
My Experience with the Mountain Air Natural Latex Pillow
I’ve been struggling for years to find an adequate pillow. I swear, I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on fancy pillows from memory foam to buckwheat. But I was still suffering from a stiff neck and headaches in the morning. So when Joyce at Mountain Air Organic Beds contacted me about their unique organic pillows, I couldn’t wait to try one. She sent me the Natural Shredded Rubber Pillow. This pillow is made from natural latex and comes with 100% organic cotton casing.
Let me tell you, this is by far THE BEST PILLOW I’VE EVER USED. From the moment I took the pillow out of the box, I was excited to try it. I’ve slept with it every night and I never want to be without it. Seriously, it’s that good! The latex provides unparalleled support. Other pillows I’ve tried were either too bulky or flattened out throughout the night leaving me with a horrible kink in my neck. This pillow provides the perfect amount of support and doesn’t settle or flatten during the night.
It also has a zipper, so the pillow is customizable. If you prefer a flatter pillow, you can simply remove and discard the excess rubber. Make the pillow exactly the way you want it! If you’re worried about latex allergies, you can request a free sample and Joyce at Mountain Air will send you one at no charge. It’s really her mission to make sure you’re choosing the best bedding items for your family. They also offer wool pillows and mattresses so everyone in your family can sleep comfortably. Seriously, get in touch with Joyce and she’ll help you choose the best option!
Celliant Pillow Cover
Now let me really blow you away. This is amazing! Joyce sent me a Celliant Pillow Cover that goes under my pillow case. Celliant is a revolutionary fiber that’s said to alleviate pain and increase tissue oxygenation. This pillow cover is the only thing Mountain Air carries that’s not organic, but it has so many health benefits, Joyce decided to add it to their product line.
What is Celliant?
Celliant is ground up crystals blended with polyester that works with the infarred red rays of your body (the light you see with night vision goggles.) Celliant uses light therapy to promote healing through the ground up crystals. These crystals are so small but can not be washed out of the bedding and works through your pillow case to promote healing and oxygenation. It aides in recovery and relaxes muscles from a stressful work out, I know it sounds crazy but I have researched it there are clinical studies and it seems pretty amazing. They even offer accessories like: mattress pads, blankets and organic pet beds that use Celliant technology. Joyce the owner of Mountain Air Organic Beds tells me they get rave reviews on Celliant from her customers who’ve tried it. I told you Joyce is awesome!
Organic Fleece Pillow Cover
Joyce at Mountain Air has designed an awesome system with the natural latex pillow, celliant cover and organic fleece pillow cover. This is a delightful combination that will leave you dreaming the night away. The organic fleece pillow cover has millions of pressure relieving curls and a breathable organic cotton knitted backing so no animals were harmed in the making of this cover. Wool is dust mite resistant and regulates body temperature, helping you get a more restful sleep. It may seem like wool would make you hot, but it actually helps whisk away moisture to keep you cooler and drier. Mountain Air’s wool cover isn’t itchy either because it’s soft and refined.
These 4 items combine for an incredible night sleep. The pillow case and Celliant pillow covers can be laundered as much as you like. Here’s how Joyce recommends layering the pillow, covers and case:
- Organic pillow
- Organic fleece
- Celliant pillow cover
- Organic Pillow case
Get a Good Night Sleep
If you’re ready to get a good night sleep, or better yet give the gift of a good night sleep you should visit Joyce at Mountain Air Organic Beds. I prefer supporting family owned and operated businesses and that’s exactly what they are. The folks at Mountain Air really care. They want to ensure you get a great night sleep. With the holidays quickly approaching, keep them in mind. They have a variety of great gifts from organic fleeces and pillows to a new line of organic pet beds and fleeces for baby.
