EcoChoices Natural Latex Pillows
One of the next purchases I'm going to make for my home and health: an EcoChoices Natural Latex Pillow (100 percent natural, with a knit organic cotton cover). When you consider the fact that you spend about eight hours a day with your nose smooshed right against the pillow, it suddenly seems very important to breathe in something other than the gross chemicals that you'd find in a product made from synthetic materials.
Good idea....Memory foams often cause heat generation. I even tried another mem foam topper claiming it was cool. NOT! So mem foam pillows would be one heat trap. Not so with latex. Try your pillow! It's a fast recovery foam where mem foam is not. One sinks into a pit and must use muscles to roll over with memory foam by whatever name it might be called. Latex doesn't make one struggle. Enjoy! Look for wholes in the actual latex so it breathes better. I hope the site from which you are purchasing shows this. If not, it will still be awesome. It might be a bit warmer w/o the holes. Most latex has holes when used in pillows these days. This pillow won't stay squished. Ever. Be prepared for that if you're used to a "flat, thin pillow." Also, there are many good things about this textile. I love the toppers. I can layer latex toppers to what I like. I prefer that than to trusting the trends of bed manufacturers to layer foams for me, including polyurethane and memory foams. Poly is like an off gasing, cheap foam. It is a bit more firm and a tad less heat generating. But I don't want it. I have three thin latex foam toppers on top of my air mattress. I can adjust the firmness of the mattress and have a bouncy surface via the latex toppers! I support and like your tastes and choice. Do consider adding a pillow protector that breathes as latex can shred a bit. Consider adding a bamboo pillow slip. It will breathe much better than any cotton. Before buying a special cotton pillow case, try a terry towel made of cotton first, unless this is a special purchase where both the latex and cotton cover are both included. . Cotton... I love cotton but not in my bed unless it's in flannel form. It's like sleeping in a diaper if I get a night sweat! The wet doesn't dry. Instead the "wet spot" endures. But that is my problem, not yours! All believe cotton wicks away moisture...who started that "rumour?" Cotton manufacturers. Best to you! Great choice!
