I feel like I’ve been spending MOST of my time in hotels lately on mattresses that are too soft and pillows that are too hard. It’s like Goldilocks and the three bears…this pillow is too hard, this pillow is too flat…ah, but when I get home – this pillow is JUST RIGHT.
The pillow that I find to be JUST RIGHT is Natura’s Eco Green Pillow. That’s right – not fiberfill, not down, but a pillow that’s totally fluffy and made of…..recycled water bottles. YES! Sounds strange doesn’t it? I’m kind of particular when it comes to laying my head down to sleep. Frankly, I have a difficult time drifting away since getting older. I’ve spent a fortune on CHEAP pillows that last a few weeks and then lose their support. I guess it just took a while for me to figure out that a GOOD pillow was worth it’s weight in…..water bottles.
I don’t like a pillow that’s too hard, and the Natura Eco Green Pillow gives me just the loft that I need and cushions my head and neck muscles for healthy spinal alignment. Plus anyone who’s had night sweats (um, YES I AM THAT AGE) knows the importance of your pillow having a 100% cotton cover and the Eco Green Pillow does.
Mr. “Z” likes his pillows just the opposite of me. He GRABBED the Natura Dream Mate Pillow from the box AS I WAS OPENING IT. He’s one of those guys who scrunches his pillows up until they’re no good. It drives me CRAZY.
To tell you the truth, I never got the chance to try the Dream Mate Pillow, but I’m okay with that, because if he’s happy and sleeping well on it – I know that it’s the perfect fit for HIM and not ME. It’s firmer than the Eco Green one and it’s antimicrobial, hypoallergenic and dust-mite resistant breathing environment is great for a guy with allergies like him. It’s totally squishable, which has kept him happy, but it’s HEAVY and retains it’s shape when I go to make the bed in the morning. I think he FINALLY found the perfect pillow for him, since he can squish and scrunch to his heart’s content and NOT RUIN the PILLOW.
All of Natura’s products are Green, Natural and Organic, so not only do they help you get a sound sleep, but they also give you the peace of mind that buying green offers.
Because I was driving to BlogHer in my Chevy Tahoe Hybrid, Natura sent me a cute travel pillow that we all shared (um, fought over really) as we took turns sleeping in the backseat. It was a lifesaver! We simply sprayed the pillow with Natura Protect to control the germs, bacteria, mold & mildew (since we were sharing). This is a MUST if you or any members of your family go to the gym. Just one spritz and you get rid of that AWFUL gym smell (sweat). I also brough along the Natura Clean natural odor and stain remover.
My FAVORITE SPRAY is their Re-Groove-N8 Mist with Green Tea & Aloe. I spray it on my pillow and my sheets and the fragrance lulled me into sleep. I started using it on the dog’s bedding as well, to calm him a bit.
Right now Natura is running a SPECIAL to celebrate Back to School. Simply, LIKE THEM on Facebook and you can take an extra 10% off of any of their products. Hmmm….it might be time for a new mattress or a dog bed here.
Natura Products can be found at Locations around the US and Canada or directly from their website.
