Have you been searching for the best organic pillow? Finding a pillow shouldn't be a hard process, but it can be if you don't know how or where to even start. In this article, I’ll take the guesswork out so you can find your perfect pillow.
To start off, most pillows out in the market are either filled with polyester, or cotton. Polyester contains a toxic chemical called ethylene glycol, most commonly known as the toxic substance in anti-freeze. Cotton also may contain harmful herbicides and pesticides- many are carcinogenic. If you think about the amount of time you spend sleeping on your pillow it adds up to a toxic load.
Memory foam pillows are a toxic recipe as well since it gasses off VOC's(volatile organic compounds). As you sleep you are breathing in those harmful substances. These VOC's have been known to cause a myriad of health problems from irritation in the throat, nose, eyes, headaches, nausea, damage to liver, kidneys and nervous system.
As you can see, choosing a new pillow requires a little more thought. Since you spend so much time sleeping, the toxic release from the pillow adds up. As you learn more about it, it is best to keep in mind what could be a silent killer during your beauty sleep.
To sum up everything, it is important for us to consider what type of material we are sleeping on everyday. Most of us use a pillow to sleep on 365 days a year and using an organic pillow is not only good for our overall health, but for our environment as well.
