Essentia Natural Memory Foam Pillow Review

On our journey to living more naturally healthy lives, we have to think a LOT about our sleep. After all, we do spend 1/3 of our lives in bed! You want to be choosy about what mattress you have, what linens, what pillows, and you want to think about what helps you have great quality sleep. Good quality sleep is so key to great health.

I decided to go organic with our family's bedding several years ago. It took me a couple months to make the switches, since it is not cheap. I look at it as an investment in our health, because the difference it makes in our lives is tremendous and well worth it. I can sleep better just knowing that my family isn't breathing in toxic flame retardents and other harmful chemicals.

You can imagine my excitement at finding another company that believes in natural and organic bedding products for the whole family - Essentia! This company was started by Jack Dell'Accio when a family member was diagnosed with cancer, and physicians made them aware of all the toxins in everyday items. Their family had been in the latex foam business for years and supplied most major brands. Jack studied the industry and realized that mattresses were manufactured with poor quality components, filled with toxic foams treated with harsh chemicals and layered together with glue. He wanted to create natural, nontoxic foam products, which is when he founded Essentia, which is the world's only natural memory foam.

I graciously received the Essentia Classic Natural Memory Foam Pillow.

I had never purchased a memory foam product before, because they were not on my "safe product" radar. Little did I know that I could have the benefits of memory foam and be assured I wasn't breathing in toxic chemicals while I sleep soundly. Since using this pillow, I have become addicted to the comfort it brings me as I sleep! I love how the pillow molds itself to my head's shape and keeps me from waking up with a stiff neck.

I was also really pleased with the lack of odor that came with this pillow. I have a natural latex mattress, and for the first several months, it smelled a little like milk. It was more annoying than anything else, but I am happy to say that this pillow only had a slight scent for about a day or two after I started using it.

Overall, I love my Essential natural memory foam pillow, and I don't think I can ever go back to my old organic wool pillow. I not only sleep in comfort, I also wake up with no pain, feeling refreshed and ready for the day! Thanks, Essentia!
