Things to Consider When Choosing Organic Cotton Pillows

Posted by TheOrganicMattressStore on September 9th, 2015

Pillows are an extremely personal accessory—one that you are literally face-to-face with every sleeping hour. Because of its nature, it is important that you think about what goes into the soft cushion that cradles your head every time you recharge for the day. Cotton organic pillows are common options, but apart from these hypoallergenic choices, there are so many other types of organic pillows that you can choose from if you want a healthier sleep. When making your decision, there are four key things that you should consider, including your sleeping position, your body size and shape, the material or materials that the pillow is made from, and your personal preferences.

Sleeping positions vary from person to person. A lot of people toss and turn as they sleep—which can indicate discomfort in bed. If you are one of these people, it is best to choose a pillow type that best supports your predominant position. To make this determination easier, think about the very position that you fall to sleep in. choose a pillow that supports your neck well and doesn't cause strain to the rest of your body. This is where the case for your body shape and body size enters the picture. Consider how tall you are and if you have broad or slender shoulders. A pillow can provide good support to your neck, but may hunch your shoulders—this causes your spine to misalign and cause other problems. Different body forms and sizes will find great support and comfort with different types of pillows. Remember this when shopping for organic pillows for the rest of your family.

Pillow material is another major thing to consider. The key to making this decision is thinking about how much of your day is spent with your face buried in a slew of soft (perhaps toxic) materials. Organic pillows offer a healthier alternative because they are made out of completely organic materials that don't have the chemicals as traditional pillows often do. Organic cotton pillows, for instance, are made out of cotton that has been cultivated in the most protected manner, preventing the occurrence of toxic chemicals in the mix of materials. Other organic materials you can choose from include natural rubber or latex, wool pillows, and even pillows made out of kapok, and buckwheat or buckwheat hulls. Depending on your personal preference, you may find one of these more appealing or more appropriate for your needs. Give them a test try at The Organic Mattress Store.
