CLOSED ~ Natura World Review and Giveaway!
I am always looking for new Green Products to highlight on my blog. I try to be as green as I can but I know I have a long way to go. I have featured a few and I figure any change I make towards being greener is a good thing.
I recently had the opportunity to review products from Natura World. Here is a little info about Natura World from their site:
Founded by father and son team, Harry and Ralph Rossdeutscher, Natura was created out of a desire to solve the mystery behind having a healthier, more abundant lifestyle. As research led to the discovery of just how much a quality night’s sleep contributed to a productive daily lifestyle, Natura’s founders searched for a solution that would help people sleep well in order to live better.
The products they sell are designed to help you sleep better. The products I reviewed were the 2 in 1 Blanket Pillow, the Dream Mate Aloe Latex Pillow, the Aromatherapy Spray and the Dream Travel Pillow. Can I say I loved these products?
What I liked about these products was the fact that they are comfortable and did help me sleep better. Not only do they look good but you can tell they are high quality products. I never notice the workmanship on bedding but I did on these products. They are very well made. I also like is that these products allow for air circulation so that repels bacteria and common allergens. You can't wash this in the washer but spot cleaning works!
The Aloe Dream Pillow supported my neck as I slept. The pillow has a granulated core that molds to your body and provides the support I needed. I really liked this because I often find it hard to find a pillow that is firm yet soft. I also have a hard time finding pillows that really help me sleep. Some are either too soft or not soft enough. Because this molds around your body, it really made for a comfortable sleep.
The Aromatherapy Spray is fantastic. It has a clean fresh smell soothing smell that you can use on the Natura World products or your other linens. I used it on all our bedding and it was wonderful.
The travel pillow is like a smaller version of the Dream pillow. I like the size and convenience. You can take this in the car or on a plane trip. It is small enough to put into your carry on luggage or a large purse. This is so much better than the airplane pillows. It's like taking a little piece of home with you. This pillow is machine washable!!
My favorite item though was the 2 in 1 Washable Blanket Pillow. I loved it. Basically it is a 15 x 15 pillow that when turned out turns into a blanket. This is the handiest thing in the world. I tossed this into the car when we went on a road trip and it was great to have it as a pillow and when it got chiller, I just opened it and had a handy blanket. This item is soft and comfy like the other ones. But I adore this because you can take it anywhere including a plane. It's the size of a throw pillow so it fits anywhere.
All the products are made with unbleached cotton percale. They also have a wool lining that helps to regulate temperature next to the skin which allows you to sleep deeper.
The difference between these products and the generic ones you buy at the store is huge. Now they aren't inexpensive but pillows and blankets are something you shouldn't skimp on at all. I know I try to spend a little extra for bedding because it makes a difference especially when you are trying to get a good night's sleep. The fact they use organic materials is a plus!! I am always looking for products that also are green and organic. I would highly recommend these products. They worked great for me!
Now if you want to try a Natura World 2 in 1 Blanket Pillow then you know the drill. The Natura World peeps were wonderful enough to offer me an extra to giveaway to you guys!! Yay! Good Luck.
