What is the one thing you can do to make your bed more comfortable? A natural mattress topper. There are a lot of benefits that come with using a mattress topper, and it's an affordable way to improve the quality of your sleep every night. If you're looking for a hypoallergenic option, then consider getting a natural latex mattress topper, like Snoozel Green's. In this post, we will go over why these options are perfect for allergy sufferers and how they can help improve your sleep in other ways too.
A natural mattress topper brings all of the great benefits of sleeping organic. What do we mean by this? Mass-produced mattresses are often made with petrochemicals based foams, which can emit unpleasant odours. On the other hand, natural latex is made from renewable resources and doesn't off-gas harmful chemicals.
Dust mites love synthetic fibres and can be a trigger for allergy sufferers. Natural latex is dust mite resistant, so it's a great option for people who have been previously affected by allergies.
What other benefits can using natural latex in our topper provide? You'll be able to enjoy more restful sleep and you're less likely to wake up in the night with an ache or pain. Why is this? Our natural mattress topper, much like our natural mattress will mould to the shape of your body, in the same way that mattress marketed as memory foam.
Like the Snoozel Green mattress, our natural mattress topper is also made with organic cotton and wool. The cotton we use is grown without the need for pesticides or herbicides. Wool naturally regulates your body temperature and will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer — perfect for those of us who 'sleep hot' which is often caused by people sleeping on synthetic fibres.
How do you use a natural mattress topper?
Place the topper on top of your current mattress and tuck in all four corners. The topper should fit snugly but not too tightly onto the bed with no overlap or gaps. You can use a duvet, blanket or sheets as usual over the natural mattress topper just like you would normally do for any other normal mattress.
How long does a natural mattress topper last?
It all depends on how you use the topper. The material of your bed will determine how much wear it experiences but also what type of care and maintenance is taken. High-quality cotton or wool (like Snoozel Green's), for example, naturally resists stains and odours so this would be a longer lasting option for a natural mattress topper.
Finally, by trying out our natural mattress topper you are not only being kind to yourself, but you're also being kind to the planet. All of the materials we use (in all of our products) are natural, organic and GOTS certified where possible, ensuring a fair deal for our makers and our environment.
