Importance of the Organic Cotton Pillow
Pillows are an essential part of a good night's sleep and while some people choose not to use them, the majority of them simply cannot do without a good piece of cushion to cradle their head and neck for a comfortable slumber. A pillow which is too flat or fluffy, has gone musty, and simply does not offer the support you need, may leave you restless and uncomfortable, which can definitely interfere with the quality of your sleep.
On an average every person spends a third of his life, with head-on-pillow, unless you sleep face down. Even in that case, you spend a third of your life buried in fluff, inhaling chemicals that off-gas overtime. To avoid these dangers, choose an organic pillow that reduces your exposure to chemicals significantly, thus giving you the most healthful sleep.
More than the covering, it is what's inside your pillow that you should pay great attention to, if you want to make sure that you are not inhaling toxins while enjoying a seemingly healthful and restful sleep. The ideal pillow filling that you should choose depends largely on the kind of sleeping position that you are most comfortable in.
If you are a side sleeper, you might prefer a pillow that offers firm support, while back sleepers need a medium amount of firmness. Stomach sleepers on the other hand, often prefer thinner pillows. Like any other type of bedding, you might need to give your new pillow and yourself a few nights of getting used to.
Organic pillows come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. As said earlier, it is important to note what's inside of your headrest to make sure you are sleeping healthy. Some of the best materials that you should hunt for include natural latex, buckwheat, , kapok, organic wool, and organic cotton. Organic Wool is the biggest seller.
Materials like natural latex are naturally hypoallergenic. Pillows that use natural latex are great for side sleepers, as they offer the perfect firmness, along with an often contoured shape, which helps increase neck support to keep spine alignment. Buckwheat and Millet are also becoming a mainstream choice, as the materials mold to the head, and as the hulls move with the sleeper's movement. Kapok is also worth a try, if you want something that is softer than organic cotton. Organic wool on the other hand, allows for firmer neck and back support and provides higher elevation. Lastly, an organic cotton pillow is the best choice for stomach sleepers to provide comfort to twisted necks. Cotton pillows will compress down over time making them extra thin.
