A naturally great night sleep


Sleep is essential. We’ve all seen the recommended sleep list for children (and it seems a bit nuts for most of us to send our elementary-aged kids to bed by 7 pm), but we also need to realize that quality sleep is important.

We spend on average, 8-12 hours in bed each day, so being face down in a pile of toxins is not a great idea. When my daughter was first born, we did a whole mattress wrap with a wrap we purchased from New Zealand and had shipped here to the US. Plus we gassed off her mattress by “baking” it in the hot Phoenix sun, but I still worried about the toxins she was exposed to because we ended up co-sleeping anyway. The fire retardants found in conventional mattresses is sickening and really, they’re making us all sick. Even today, I avoid the chemicals, like PBDE, found in kid’s sleepwear because I don’t trust that keeping us around toxic chemicals while we sleep all night is safe.

So, recently when Essentia contacted me about their products, I was excited to try out their natural memory foam pillow.

Organic mattresses, but better. You no longer need to compromise on comfort when committed to a healthy lifestyle. Financing from $20 to $56/month

This unique and patented mattress not only provides top-notch comfort, but also a clean air environment and countless certifications proving Essentia offers the healthiest mattress on the market! These certifications include: Green America Certified, Clean Air, GREENGUARD Certified, Columbia Labs Tested, Worker Safety Tested, GOTS Certified, EuroLatex ECO-Standard and OkekoTex certified to name only a few.

Why is Essentia Memory foam better than the others? To me, it is because it is made with quality, natural products, void of the chemicals used in conventional mattresses or memory foam pillows.

The Essentia patented foam is made with Hevea milk, the milky white sap of the rubber tree, with essential oils like grapefruit seed, cone flower essence and jasmine essence. Plant extracts and water are added to help achieve the feel that helps you fall asleep quicker.

My review of Essentia Classic Pillow

Natural memory foam pillow made from rubber sap and not chemicals

Using this Essentia Classic memory form pillow has been a dream. Really. The pillow is firm and supportive, but leaves a soft touch when you move. I’ve been tracking my sleep with my fitbit and can say that my tossing and turning has decreased. Of course there are other things changing too, but I can definitely tell you I no longer am looking for the right pillow, because I’ve found it! The only issue I have is that my son steals “my” pillow. So, after he falls asleep, I steal it back, but then realize we can share since he’s in bed with me anyway, and then I know that he’s sleeping with quality too!

Natural Crib Mattresses for Babies and Kids (they convert!)

I know many aren’t able to invest in new beds for the entire family, so some may choose to purchase for their baby, since they sleep – a lot. I also know that some babies don’t spend a long time in their crib, so there may be a look at the budget for the investment in a quality, natural crib mattress. Well, if you purchase the Essentia natural (healthy) memory foam mattress for your baby’s crib, they even have a convertible kit available to get your child to convert from that crib mattress and extend it into a full mattress! Basically You’ll just extend and not have to replace! This makes the decision to buy a quality, toxin-free crib mattress more affordable.

  1. We have a natural latex memory foam mattress and really love it. We got a topper on a loft for one of our kids, another natural latex foam mattress for her twin brother and the littlest will hopefully be getting one soon.

    We have found it challenging to find a reputable foam mattress company that is affordable.

  2. Sounds like a good product. I toss/turn a lot when I sleep as well, I have a Fitbit but it’s just the Zip so it does not track sleep.

  3. Thanks for the post. I purchased an organic mattress 3 years ago and it is the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in. I’m glad to know about another brand that has so many meaningful certifications. And, what a great idea to have a crib mattress that converts.

  4. Hmm…definitely something to consider. We’re in the process of replacing our pillows and I have been researching ways to get a better night’s sleep. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Very interesting. I can’t wait to come back to see your review of the pillow. I have allergies and I’m wondering if my pillows are a trigger for me.

  6. This sounds like a great product for a mattress. Coming from a girl that needs 9 hours of sleep plus a nap each day, sleep matters!

  7. This sounds like a pillow I need to look into – I’m super picky with my pillows and always want to have a memory foam one but the one I currently have needs to be upgraded!
