How to Create a Healthy Organic Bedroom

Getting enough quality sleep can not only eliminate those nasty bags under your eyes, but also improve your overall physical and mental health. However, even after knowing all the benefits of a good night’s sleep, we still tend to neglect our Zs. So, today, it’s time to set our priorities straight and turn our bedrooms into healthy and organic spaces perfect for relaxation and sleep.

Remove the Carpets

In order to create an organic and healthy space, you must start from the bottom. Remove your old carpets that are not just ugly and worn-out, but also serve as a breeding ground for all sorts of nasty critters like dust mites and germs. Replace your carpets with natural and hypoallergenic cork, natural wood flooring or recycled linoleum. These materials are easy to clean and don’t provide a home for allergens. For some warmth, use small area rugs you can regularly wash.

Opt for Organic Bedding

We spend almost a third of our lives in bed, so making it comfortable and healthy is the least we can do. Replacing bedding made of artificial and treated materials with all-natural and organic bedding will do miracles for your well-being and comfort during sleep. You can also opt for pillows made of natural and untreated cotton and natural latex. There are also buckwheat hull pillows that offer great neck support and wool ones with moisture-wicking properties perfect for hot climates.

Replace Your Old Mattress

Another way to make your bedroom more organic and healthy is to get rid of your old mattress. This might be a costly investment, but when you consider the number of chemicals used in the production of old-fashioned mattresses and all the allergens contained in them, you’ll see the importance of this step. The best and healthiest option is to choose a natural latex mattress that offers great back support and is naturally anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and resistant to dust mites. Just make sure your pick carries a Good Environmental Choice label which makes it safer for you and the environment.
