Organic bedding is often overlooked by those seeking to live a healthier lifestyle with less chemical processing, but it shouldn’t be. We often think carefully about the quality of food we eat and what chemicals we’re putting on to our skin, but forget about the kind of chemicals that could be affecting us while we sleep.
Pesticides, chemical-based dyes and flame retardants are all commonly used in the manufacture of non-organic bedding. Some items of bedding even contain formaldehyde resin, which may result in symptoms such as headaches and rashes on continued exposure*.
If you suffer from MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity) or skin allergies, switching to organic bedding may help relieve your symptoms and give you peace of mind. When you choose organic bedding, you know that no chemical ‘nasties’ such as the above might be affecting you as you sleep.
Choosing organic bedding needn’t mean sacrificing comfort – our organic range of bedding is just as soft and cosy as the non-organic alternatives!
At The Healthy House we take great care in choosing products from our suppliers. With a wealth of experience with allergies – knowledge gained both from personal experience and through years of helping our customers – we painstakingly research every product we stock to minimise the risk of customers reacting to ingredients or chemicals within it. All of our bedding (even non-organic) could be described as ‘allergy-friendly’ due to the quality and type of ingredients used in their manufacturing. However, for people with chemical sensitivity and complex allergies, organic is simply a great choice.
