Why You Should Choose a Natural Mattress Topper

Updated on August 5, 2015

Natural Mattress Toppers For a Better Night’s Sleep


Are you sick and tired of tossing and turning at night, and maybe thinking about adding a natural mattress topper to help you drift off to sleep? Or perhaps you’re just curious about alternatives to conventional mattress toppers such as down and memory foam. In either case, you’ve come to the right place to learn more! As they say, write about what you know, and I do admit sleeping well in a luxurious and comfortable bed is something I know a great deal about. Call it a passion if you will. Natural mattress toppers can provide better support for your back and joints, reduce the disturbance to sleeping partners when turning, and extend the life of your mattress all while providing a more eco-friendly alternative to down toppers and memory foam. Interested? Then read on sleepy friends!

Natural Latex Mattress Toppers


Natural latex mattress toppers are made from the Hevea Brasiliensis in which latex runs in a layer above the actual sap of the tree. The Hevea tree is a renewable resource, as the tree is not killed in order to harvest the latex, and can be grown and processed organically. Natural latex mattress toppers behave in much the same manner as memory foam mattress toppers, except that they are natural rather than synthetic. Latex provides support for problem areas like the back, and molds itself to your contours. It also has natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, so you won’t have to worry about what’s growing in your mattress topper (eww). I personally love a natural latex mattress topper of about 3 inches on my mattress, it provides just the right amount of cushion. Even my baby, who co-sleeps with myself and my husband occasionally, sleeps far deeper on the latex mattress topper than in his crib with a firm mattress.

Natural Wool Mattress Topper


Imagine falling into a bed that feels just like a fluffy cloud. With a natural wool mattress topper you can have that feeling every night! A wool mattress topper is comparable to a down mattress topper, but with many more benefits, namely that the sheep don’t meet their maker to provide the wool! Also, many people are sensitive to down and the dander in down, whereas wool doesn’t shed dander and leaves your nose blissfully free of such yucky allergens. Obviously if you are allergic to wool this won’t work, but even folks who are wool sensitive can sleep comfortably on a natural wool mattress topper because the wool is usually encased in organic cotton. Wool is a seriously underrated material in my opinion. It works wonderfully in both cool and warm weather as it is a great insulator but is also efficient at wicking moisture away from the skin. Wool can also be farmed organically ,making it very eco-friendly as well. If you are looking for a fluffy, pillow like feel then a natural wool mattress topper is definitely the right choice for you.

Whether you are looking for curve hugging support or cloud like softness, there’s a natural mattress topper that’s right for you!

      Kiera-I think it just depends on what you're looking for. We have friends that LOVE their Sleepnumber, but I've personally never slept on one. I believe Sleepnumbers basically fill with air, so it's a different principal. Also, I'm not sure of how environmentally friendly they are, I've never studied the topic! You will find plenty of rabid Sleepnumber fans out there though.
