We spend about one-third of our lives in bed. Yet many people don’t think twice about buying a synthetic pillow that contains toxins and even feathers from live animals. That rash buying decision is not suitable for your health, sleep, animal welfare, and the environment.

If you really want to make a simple upgrade in the bedroom that will change all that, then it is recommended that you buy a natural pillow.

There are many benefits of natural pillows as well as many reasons to choose them over synthetic ones:

Natural Pillows Regulate Body Temperature
Pillows that are filled with synthetic materials generally overheat very quickly. This is because synthetic materials, such as polyester, don’t regulate your body temperature well while sleeping. Furthermore, these synthetic materials are also water-resistant, meaning that unlike natural materials, e.g. organic cotton and organic wool, they don’t absorb body moisture.

In short, synthetic pillows don’t breathe like natural pillows. Natural pillows, on the other hand, regulate body temperature well and hence don’t overheat.

Natural Pillows Are Anti-Bacterial
Natural pillows are exceptional when it comes to keeping your bed free from bacteria. Thanks to their ability to absorb most of their weight in moisture without feeling damp, the organic materials in natural pillows repel moisture, allowing it to pass through the fibres without retaining it. This dry ‘microclimate’ that natural pillows create makes it virtually impossible for bacteria, dust mites, and allergens to survive. So, if you want to sleep healthy, it is recommended that you choose a natural pillow and avoid the synthetic materials that attract allergens and bacteria.

You Can Adjust Your Pillow’s Height
Most synthetic pillows available on the market are sewn shut. This means whatever filling is inside, it cannot be added to and removed. This isn’t the case with natural pillows. They are generally very customizable, and many manufacturers allow you to personalize them according to your specific needs and preferences. With a customization option, you can:

Add extra pillow filling so that you have a higher loft pillow (suitable for those who sleep on their side) or
Remove some pillow filling to have a lower loft pillow (suitable for those who sleep on their back).
Natural Pillows Are Safe for You and the Environment
Synthetic pillows are bad for the environment. They are bad for your health too, as they carry carcinogens that can generate problems like heart, lung, and skin cancer. Apart from this, studies suggest that synthetic materials like polyester can cause various respiratory problems. There are no such concerns when it comes to natural pillows because they don’t contain any potentially dangerous, harsh chemicals. As a result, they don’t leave a long-lasting, adverse effect on the environment.

These are some of the top reasons to choose a natural pillow. However, when buying one, make sure that the pillow is actually organic, as some manufacturers can still treat their natural materials with chemicals and pesticides or blend their natural material with synthetic ones to cut the costs.
