Inspired by Life

Updated: Jul 25, 2021

Sleep is one of the few places where we're supposed to be completely relaxed and safe. But, as I've recently learned, many mattresses don't hold up to my standards of safety.

Many of us know the scents that come off a mattress after a couple of days. This is known as off-gassing, but. Many people don't know that off-gassing, put super-simple, is the airborne release of a chemical, a chemical in vapor form. Whenever you smell a product, it’s off-gassing.

So, what happens when we inhale these vapors? What happens when we inhale any kind of harmful chemical?

Well, the effects range, depending on how long you've been breathing them in, and any pre-existing health conditions, but. The most common dangers after prolonged exposure can cause headaches, respiratory illnesses, and a variety of cancers.

Personally, I spend a lot of time in my bed. Whether I'm just too lazy to get up, or enjoying sleeping in, the last thing I want while I relax is to be breathing in chemicals that could give me cancer.

Thankfully, all-natural products do not do this. Our all-natural or organic latex mattresses do not off-gas, and they do not release harmful chemicals into your bedroom. Not to mention, any other smells that mattresses may give off thanks to mold or mildew simply don't happen with latex mattresses, as they are anti-microbial and hypoallergenic!

As I've said before, I absolutely detest the thought of mold and mildew anywhere, let alone on the bottom of my mattress, spreading spores into the air whenever I lay on it. But, with latex beds, it makes me sleep a lot of sounder knowing that I'm not inhaling that as I sleep.

Especially here in the summer, when we all need plenty of energy to deal with this heat. After all, we need our beds to support us so we can live our lives to the fullest. We can't do that if we're suffering from respiratory illnesses or non-restful sleep. It's why we're inspired by and for life, to make sure the world around us is as wonderful and as healthy as possible. :)
