How do you get a good night sleep?
I've been having a reaction to soaps and detergeants, so for me, having natural products and natural soaps is the only thing that keeps me sleeping ALL night. I recently received 2 products to review that have greatly helped me to get a GREAT night's sleep!
Yorkshire-Mayfair Tencel Bed Sheet Set. If you don't know what Tencel Fiber is, it is a natural man made fiber made from real eucalyptus trees! Its has a natural breatheability and 50% greater moisture absorption than cotton, which also makes it anti-bacterial. So it will keep you cool during Summer and warm in Winter! Note that when you order on Amazon the color is MUCH more muted in person, than the color swatch shows. This is natural to Tencel fabric- it tends to mute the dye. Personally I like softer colors for bed sheets, so no problem to me. the sheet sets come in Queen and King sizes right now.
I am used to sleeping on high count cotton sheets, so I wasn't sure how these sheets would feel. But I was pleasantly surprised! The feel is very similar to a sateen rayon, but when you actually lay on it, it is more like a silk sheet! The sheets are SUPER lightweight and I've found that my hair is less knotted since using the sheets, so the pillow case seems to be acting like a satin pillowcase in that regards! The seep pockets really help to keep the mattress topper from getting 'smushed' at the corners. You can wash and dry it (may shrink a very minor tad on first wash, but then be perfect after that). The sheets are easy to wash and dry, and if you put them on right out of the dryer, you will barely have ANY wrinkles!
The other product that is REALLY helping me to sleep ALL night long is
Original Bamboo Pillow!
This bamboo fabric covered pillow is unique in that it is stuffed with special shredded memory foam that allows you to use your pillow anyway you want! Side sleeper, back sleeper, stomach sleeper- no matter which way you lay, the pillow goes WITH you. If you remember I had been using The Proper Pillow, to keep away back pain, as it aligns your spine. Well after 2 years, it's getting pretty flat and not working very well. So I was interested to see how this pillow would work instead.
First off the bamboo cover keeps you cool, no more head sweating at night! Their special stay cool technology allows for air flow, so you never get over heated! Plus it has antibacterial properties. No need to worry about allergies, dust mites, and any other nasty parasite! I actually wake up even MORE rested than using the other pillow! I was really surprised that sleeping on memory foam was not only so comfortable, but so cool! Normally if I sleep on my mom's memory foam bed, I always wake up super hot! Best off though is it doesn't bed which way I turn my head, my neck is supported. It feels like your head goes into a supported dip and is cradled all night)- you can still see mine in the picture-LOL And I don't wake up with ANY back pain! Woo hoo!
One lucky BTHM reader will win their own Original Bamboo Pillow!
Note: Initially your pillow will be extremely flat for shipping efficiency, to fluff up the pillow for sleeping just toss it in the dryer on low for 10 - 15 minutes! Easy peasy!
