What is an Organic Mattress?

An organic mattress is made of all natural materials rather than synthetic petroleum fibers and foams. Harvested materials like cotton and rubber tree sap (used for Natural Latex) are grown and produced without the use of pesticides or dangerous chemical fire retardants. Health conscious shoppers recognize the value of limiting their exposure to toxins in our food. Why should our sleep be any different?

No Harmful Chemical Fire Retardants 

Prolonged exposure to chemicals commonly used in modern day mattresses have been linked to a variety of health problems. Organic Wool is a safe, sustainable fire retardant alternative. It’s a healthy solution that is already available. It’s Naturepedic's choice to only use Natural products such as Organic Wool, Organic Cotton and Organic Latex in their mattresses.

Who should buy an Organic Mattress?

Anyone seeking the benefits of a healthier lifestyle and a comfortable supportive mattress should consider buying an organic mattress. Naturepedic offers premium quality luxury bedding at reasonable prices.

Organic Latex

3" of GOLS Certified organic Latex offers outstanding pressure relief and conformity. Unlike synthetic foams, Organic Latex has no off gassing. It sleeps cooler and has more bounce than Memory foam. 

Comfort Options:

Expect Organic Latex comfort foam to offer a little more bounce and resiliency than memory foam. You'll lay more on top and less in the mattress than most synthetic materials. The combination of individually wrapped coils and organic latex limits motion transfer and sleeps cool. The Essentials offers 5 different comfort options. Choose feels ranging from Extra Firm to Plush.

Extra Firm: There is a very small percentage of people who just can't get their mattress hard enough. They are typically back and stomach sleepers who genuinely enjoy this type of rigid support. We can't stress enough how rare it is that someone truly feels most comfortable on the firmest of beds. Often times, people mistakenly equate firmness with support; they are not synonymous. A mattress can be supportive and still have enough pressure relief for comfort.

Firm: This mattress is typically best suited for back and stomach sleepers. Not quite as rigid as the Extra Firm but still quite firm. 

Luxury Firm: This is the safest bet for most individuals seeking a firmer feel. Just enough softness to accommodate the curvature of the spine while on your back. On your stomach it gives pressure relief but does not allow your lower back to dip and cause lumbar pain. The luxury firm may be soft enough for some side sleepers but most will find their sweet spot in a softer bed.

Medium: The medium will be the choice of a large portion side sleepers and some back sleepers who prefer a bit more softness. Here is where body type comes into play. A heavier person will tend to sink further into the mattress. This tends to make the bed feel softer than a lighter individual who will lay more on top of the mattress.

Plush: The Plush is ideal for the side sleeper who wants the utmost in pressure relief and conformity. Some (not all) back sleepers will appreciate this level of softness. The Plush will will be too soft for most stomach sleepers. 


Although Essentials is priced higher than many online mattress companies, It's a great value for the quality you receive. Compared to other Organic Luxury beds, Essentials is a great buy. If your budget dictates you spend under $1,000, this mattress is not for you. However, if you are looking for a quality luxury organic mattress, Naturepedic's Essentials is well worth considering.
