Today is the final day of Sherry Burton Way’s Virtual Book Tour. I have something very special to share with you today. Sherry understands how important a healthy life style is and has written a special article just for you.
Organic Bedding For A Healthier You.
We spend nearly one third of our lives asleep, and the quality of this rest period will directly affect our energy levels during the day. Pillows and bedding are like mini-mattresses that your face and skin presses up against for hours on end every night.
Pillows and bedding should be made from natural fibers which allow our skin to breathe, and will not give off toxic fumes during the night. Choose natural colored sheets which have not been treated with bleach, as the residue and odor often aggravates allergic reactions.
The materials that your bedding is made of is very important to consider. Watch out for polyester and polyester-blend percales. These types of sheets and blankets are actually just soft thermoplastic, which is made from petrochemicals. The least comfortable and most harmful bed linens you can buy are polyester 2 no-iron 2 sheets. Not only are these made from petro-chemicals but they are treated with formaldehyde resin finishes. Cotton/polyester blends, wrinkle resistant sheets are also treated with formaldehyde.
We often forget that the colors of our bedding are an integral part of your color scheme. The colors of the sheets and covers can have a physical and psychological effect on you. Insomniacs will benefit from soothing and calming blues and greens, while those who live alone may take comfort in warm pinks and peaches.
Create that healthy bedroom using organic bedding and increase your health and your sleep!
