You may love the smell of a new car, but do you want that same smell when you lie down on your mattress? Why would your new car and your mattress be giving off the same scent?
Believe it or not, many mattresses actually produce off-gassing. So that “new bed smell” is the same smell that’s coming from your new vehicle’s upholstery. These things that you are in or on almost daily are leaking Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) into the air around you. Meaning that distinct smell isn’t a good sign.
If you’re on our website, chances are you are already into organic products. But humor us for a minute. Why should you care about getting an organic mattress?
Did you know that traditional mattresses contain nasty chemicals? Most of the ingredients are made from petroleum—yes, like the gasoline. Not only is petroleum dangerous for your health, but it is also highly flammable.

‘Tis the season to be . . . sleepy?
OK, let’s be honest—we all have loved ones that LOVE to sleep, probably more than anything. And because they value their beauty rest more than most means they would appreciate some awesome sleep gifts!
Congratulations, you are ready to buy a new mattress!
When shopping, you will likely come across organic mattress options. You probably understand organic when it comes to food and maybe even cosmetics or clothing, but an organic bed? Simply put, conventional mattresses are made with harmful chemicals whereas organic mattresses are not.
