An organic mattress is the new luxury mattress of this day and age. They are eco-friendly, chemical free, and organic. They are also flame retardant without clogging up your lungs and head space with harsh chemicals.
Many of these mattresses are made with age old products, namely cotton and wool. Organic latex is also thrown in, and these three ingredients make a comfortable and organic mattress. It’s true that many people want a memory foam mattress, but unfortunately these products emit an odor that is unpleasant and sometimes harmful. With these organic ingredients, there is little to no odor, and whatever odor does exist will not harm you.
Recently, mattress producers have to ensure that their mattresses are flame retardant. This is in response to mattresses catching on fire, resulting in injuries and deaths. So, many producers added in flame retardant products. Unfortunately, some of these chemicals are toxic, particularly for children and the elderly. Organic mattresses do not contain these toxic chemicals because cotton, wool, and latex are naturally flame retardant. So you’ll be able to rest easy knowing that what you’re breathing in from your mattress won’t harm you.
Organic mattresses come in many different sizes, whether it be for your baby, toddler, yourself, or someone else in the family. Depending on how the organic mattress is made, such a mattress can last five to twenty years. Of course, like your car or home, your mattress should be well maintained and cleaned. An adult size organic mattress typically runs for about the same amount as other mattresses, although it depends on the quality of the bed and where you’re purchasing your mattress from. You can find them at a green mattress store or online. Just be sure that you get a certified organic mattress, or you might be paying for something that’s falsely advertised, or worse, something that is harmful to you and your family.
