Finding the Right Pillow

You could be sleeping on the wrong pillow, and missing out on a better nights sleep. Whether you are a side, back sleeper or stomach sleeper; sleeping on the wrong pillow could have cause you aches and pains on the neck, back or shoulders.
But you should not have to worry about sleeping on the wrong pillow.
There are certain things that can be taken into consideration before purchasing your next pillow.
As the images above demonstrate the best sleep relies greatly on the pillow you sleep on. For any type of sleeper the ideal pillow provides enough support according to weight, ensuring proper neck and spinal alignment.
If the pillow is too high it will cause your neck to bend too far forward and out of its proper alignment. But if a pillow is too low it will cause your neck to fall too far backwards also causing unalignment.
The perfect pillow should adjust itself to your head giving you the necessary support for your head and neck all depends on the your weight and height.

What is your pillow made of?


Truth is you just can’t stop yourselves from looking at such a pillow, I mean it’s a bright PURPLE colored pillow! Although the hype for this pillow is very real, there is a pillow that is eco-friendly, all natural and innovative.
Let’s break it down, below we will go into more detail on what the Natural Latex and the Hyper elastic polymer pillow are made of?
What is Hyper Elastic Polymer?
I know we all love the color purple on this pillow, but do you even know what it’s made of? It’s made of Hyper Elastic Polymer, what is this? Basically this pillow is made of food and food contact grade ingredients. “What is that?” Well its food or anything that has come into contact with food that can be recycled, such as forks, spoons, bottles, plates, containers etc. The column design of the pillows allows for increased airflow and pressure releasing support and comfort. Covered with a 55% polyester cover.
Don't get discouraged if sleeping on recycled goods isn't your thing. There are many options available on the market, but here are two important questions for you:
Have you tried heard of natural latex pillows?
Have you ever tried a natural latex pillow?
This is the only pillow that naturally defeats most pillows because not only is it made from the healthiest materials on the market, but it’s extremely comfortable.
Introducing you to Natural Latex Pillow? What is Natural Latex?
Natural Latex Pillows are so underrated, we thought it was time you knew all about its natural benefits. Here is why it’s great, the all natural latex pillow is made from 100% natural latex non blend. The latex trees also known as Hevea-Brasiliensis are grown and harvested in Sri Lanka. The sap extracted from these latex trees is poured into a mold, chilled, and finally heated, to set. This process allows for a unique foam consistency, allowing the pillow to have a controlled density and feel. Creating better bounce and response time to your every move. Due to its all natural properties these latex pillows are hypoallergenic, dust, and mold resistant, making them perfect for those who suffer from allergies. It's also a viable option if you are and concerned about the quality and origin of materials in your home. So if you prefer natural and organic products, this is the right pillow for you.

Gift of Caring

It may seem like it’s not worth mentioning since the act of giving is already an act of caring.
But the gift of caring runs so much deeper.
When we say “Gift of Caring,” we mean gifts that will affect your loved ones lives in a positive way. In the long run we all grow older, but can grow older in different ways. Traditionally, we gravitate towards the convenient gifts, such as gift cards, movie tickets, socks, sweaters, candy.  Although that Santa jars filled with chocolates is a cute idea the though behind always gifting the same old thing is fleeing. We are growing older, even at this very minute. It’s inevitable that we progress to old age, where everything that’s been done in our 20’s and 30’s will catch up to us. As we get even older, we are at an increasing risk for health problems. That’s why the gift of caring is necessary for both the young and old.
The Gift of Organic
When you care about someone, you care about their health, physical wellness and mental wellness—anything to increase their quality of life. What is ingested, what is worn and your environment goes under scrutiny and contributes heavily to health. It’s important to decrease the toxicity exposure from harsh chemicals and pesticides. It’s not just a fad. There are countless studies that have been done. Typically when we hear “organic” we think of dairy and produce; however, textiles is equally important, especially since we spend a chunk of our lives in bed every night. To show we care, giving the gift of a long-term impact is an excellent way of saying “you matter.” - If your loved one is in need of a new pillow, give them organic latex for comfort and better support. - If your loved one has issues with allergy in their old dusty comforters, give them down alternative, which is much more hypoallergenic and microbial resistant. Also the weather is getting colder. - If your loved one has a bed that’s not as comfortable as it can be, throw in latex mattress topper—which is a more natural equivalent alternative to memory foam. - 100% Organic bed sheets are an easier go to if you do not know whether or not they need new blankets or pillows. Here at Well Living shop in Team work with Organic Textiles LLC, we want to stress the holiday season is a perfect time to practice the gift of giving (assuming you’re not the Scrooge before the three ghost visits). Keep a look out for our upcoming holiday sales.

How to Wash the Wool Comforter



Needs some tips on how to properly wash your wool comforter? Well you’ve come to the right place; here you will find insightful tips on how to properly wash for your comforter.
First off, if you just bought your wool comforter there is no need to wash it, unless it’s your preference. Our Wool Comforters are chemical-free and are ready for immediate use. It is important to remember that wool is made of natural fiber; this fiber regulates temperature and maintains its shape for a very long time. For this reason, when washing your Wool Comforter you must be extra careful. It is recommended to wash your Wool comforter every two to six months.
HOW TO WASH: When washing your comforter avoid any loaders that would slowly flip the product. Use a TOP LOADER machines. Manually set your machine to SOAK and to MEDIUM/ HIGH-SPEED SPINNING. Pay attention while washing and stop in the soak and rinse and skip any slow speed spins.
1. Settings- Choose the most delicate cycle. Your machine will either say “hand wash or “gentle
2. Soak – Fill your machine with warm water and add your biodegradable detergent or wool wash. Place your Wool Comforter and slowly push it down to let the water soak in.
3. Skip all Slow spinning cycles- set your machine to medium/ high speed. This will allow the spinning to take out the water out.
4. DO NOT USE DRY MACHINE – hand-dry in the sun or warm place
*Getting Rid of Small SpotsIf the reason you are washing your comforter is because you accidentally stained a spot, use hydrogen peroxide.
Apply hydrogen peroxide to the stain area- let it dry in between application, you will notice the stain will slowly start to lift and disappear as it gets dry. If the stain is not coming off keep applying more hydrogen peroxide until the affected areas starts to disappear. If the stain is too big use your sink and just soak the affected area with your wool wash or biodegradable detergent. After, you can either hand-dry or press the water out with a towel.
Disclaimer: Failure to follow these instructions does not guarantee product. Make sure you follow these instructions carefully when washing your Wool Comforter.

What is Kapok?



Kapok refers to a tropical tree and the fiber from its fruit, it’s also known as silk cotton or java cotton. The fibers are harvested through the seedpod of the fruit. This seedpod produces the fluffy kapok fiber material with hundreds of seeds. A fully grown kapok tree can easily yield up to 15 kilograms of fiber each year. During harvesting, the unopened ripe pods are either knocked down or cut off the tree. The fruits are then opened: hundreds of seeds and fibers are removed by hand, segregating them from the fiber.
Kapok is a very distinguishable fiber. It is described as being softer and silkier than traditional cotton would be. Unlike cotton and other fibers kapok has a bouncy aspect. This makes it ideal for pillows as it can bounce back to its original state. Although occasional fluffing may still be required sporadically.
The waxy coating on the kapok fiber helps give it the silky feel. This also benefits it’s amazing moisture resistant qualities. Meaning if you feel like you get hot while you sleep this might be the pillow for you. It also reduced and almost eliminates clumping in the pillow, as it can easily adjust to the proper shape do to this waterproof like waxy coating.
