PlushBeds is America’s largest distributor of ARPICO organic latex. Rubber tree sap is tapped from the Kegalle plantation in Sri Lanka and grown without chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides. The Botanical Bliss offers a healthier toxin free sleep environment.
Certified organic non-woven engineered cotton
All cotton used by PlushBeds are Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified. To qualify for this certification, it must be grown without chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides. Organic cotton is hypoallergenic and environmentally friendly. This material has exceptional absorption and release characteristics and is soft and comfortable. Non-woven cotton provides greater uniformity and strength than knitting, weaving or other processes.
Only 100% pure New Zealand wool is used in the Botanical Bliss. Wool is a natural heat regulator that creates a breathable micro climate. This allows your body to maintain a constant, comfortable temperature. Organic wool also resists mildew and repels dust mites; ideal for allergy sufferers. The Botanical Bliss needs no chemical fire retardants because organic wool creates a natural flame barrier. High keratin protein and moisture content make it naturally resistant to burning. All PlushBeds wool is Global Organic Textile standard (GOTS) certified. From the farm to the factory, all wools used are monitored at every stage. Keeping with GOTS requirements, flocks are managed in humane, chemical free environment. All wool must meet the highest standard of purity.

Ease of Movement
Overall rating reflects the combined scores of all values. The categories have been weighted in our calculations based on their individual importance.
This mattress offers solid support and body alignment. Similarly specced mattresses we’ve tested in the 10” range tend to perform best for sleepers under 270 lbs. For individuals above this size, we recommend the 13” model. The extra 3” of latex offers more support and structure for larger people.
Organic Dunlop latex offers superior body contouring; combined with a little bit of bounce. Although not as conforming as memory foam, this mattress still ranks high when it comes to pressure relief. For those seeking a bit softer feel with a little more body hug, we recommend the 13" option.
Natural latex mattresses typically rank well in this category. The Botanical Bliss is no exception. Natural organic latex is pressure relieving and limits partner sleep disturbance.
Ease of Movement
Natural latex is far more buoyant than memory foam. Movement is free and easy.
While all foams retain some heat, natural latex sleeps far cooler than synthetic foams.
Natural latex when new sometimes gives off a mild non offensive odor some have compared to the scent of almonds. This quickly dissipates and poses no danger. Natural latex emits absolutely no toxins. It also does not use chemical fire retardants instead the organic wool acts as a natural fire barrier.
Natural latex disperses your weight throughout the mattress. Expect many years of solid comfort and support.
In a seated position on the edge of mattress, edge support is a bit suspect. However, once you lay down, your weight is distributed evenly and proper support and alignment is attained. Lesser edge support is not a flaw so much as a characteristic of any spring-less mattress.
The Botanical Bliss comes with a 100 day comfort trial. If you are dissatisfied with your mattress return it for full credit. There are however, a few stipulations to be aware of. PlushBeds asks that before you return your mattress, that you try it for a full 30 days. Often times there can be an adjustment period when purchasing a new bed. Also, mattress must be returned unstained along with any bonus items received at the time of purchases. If you decide to keep these items, a charge of $99 will be deducted from your refund.
PlushBeds offers a 25 year warranty on the Botanical Bliss. During the first 10 years, defective mattress will be replaced or repaired at the company's discretion. During the remaining years of ownership, defective mattress will be repaired or replaced at company's discretion. Service fees and prorated rates will be applied. See manufacturer's full warranty for complete details.
Note: It's unlikely you'll be keeping this or any mattress for 25 years. Even if a bed is reconditioned to meet warranty specifications, it does not guarantee it will feel as comfortable as when new. Your age, physical condition or recent injuries make each stage of life play a part in how our comfort requirements may change. A mattress that's appropriate when you're in your 30's may not suit your needs at age 50.
PlushBeds delivers free to your door in the continental US. Your order will be custom made to your specifications and will require from 7 - 9 days to be completed. Once ready, a tracking number will be provided and an additional 7 days will be required for shipping. PlushBeds does not offer in home white glove delivery service. They will however, provide a list of local professionals that can perform setup for as little as $99.
Great ease of mobility and natural bounce.
While this mattress is priced higher than many other online beds, this doesn’t mean it’s not an exceptional value. This is a superior quality organic mattress that’s priced way below comparable retail offerings.
Comfort / Firmness Options
The Botanical Bliss is made in a 10” or 13” mattress. Each model is available in either a medium or firm option. By rearranging the layers, you can easily adjust the firmness level to create a custom comfort feel that’s just right for you. The 10” consists of 3 adjustable layers of ARPICO organic latex. Both 10” options can be arranged in 6 different firmness levels.
The 13” adds an extra 3” middle layer of ARPICO organic latex. This increases the firmness choices from 6 – 8. The extra layer expands the softness range for those seeking more contouring conformity. It also provides additional stability for larger body types.
Easily Arrange Or Rearrange Firmness
By changing the position of each layer, a softer or firmer feel can be obtained. Natural organic latex adheres to itself once aligned and requires no glues to hold layers in place. Having the ability easily to tweak the firmness level of your mattress greatly increases your odds of finding the comfort you want.
Note: The 13” offers 8 firmness levels per mattress
Before Considering Your Firmness Level
Physical size can play a role in personal comfort. A larger person’s body will be absorbed deeper into the mattress than a petite individual. A smaller body type will lay more on top of the mattress; making this bed feel firmer. A person with greater body mass will be absorbed deeper; making the bed feel softer. Preferred sleep position is a factor also. We’ll break down what to expect from various firmness options. When making your decision, always consider comfort first.
On your back…
The 10” Model
Natural organic latex is buoyant and has more bounce than memory foam. It also by nature, has less body contouring ability. Most back sleepers typically gravitate towards a firmer feel. However, the 10” firm may be a little “too firm” for many sleepers; regardless of their preferred sleep position. Of course, if you genuinely like a more robust feel (and some do), we’re not discouraging you from purchasing this mattress. We are simply pointing out that for most back sleepers, the medium will be a better choice. Bare in mind, we are talking comfort, not support differences. Even on your back, nobody’s body is perfectly flat. With it’s 6 different firmness options, the firm covers that medium to medium firm range that is ideal for most back sleepers.
The 13” Model
The 13” Botanical Bliss adds a fourth 3” layer of organic latex. This offers back sleepers an additional softness; for those desiring more body contour. This mattress will still have its characteristic bounce; but with a little more contouring pressure relief. Back sleepers with more sensitivity to pressure points will find this bed comfortable.
On your side…
The 10” Model
If you’re a side sleeper and are thinking about the 10” Botanical Bliss, the medium is the clear choice. The firm will be “too firm” for most side sleepers. The medium can be adjusted to accommodate the needs of most, but not all side sleepers.
The 13” model
Side sleepers seeking the most pressure relief as possible should consider the 13” mattress. The additional layer of ARPICO latex offers softness not attainable with the medium. While still buoyant, it offers more contouring for the shoulders and hips. Both the 13” medium and firm offer 8 different firmness levels. There is enough variance here to satisfy the majority of side sleepers.
On your stomach…
The 10” Model
If you sleep exclusively on your stomach, the 10” is the mattress for you. The key for those who sleep in this position is to not let your lower back dip and cause lumbar pain. Although the firm may work for some, we recommend the medium here also. Just as with side and back sleeping, our concern is that the firm may be “too firm”. The medium with it’s broad range of firmness levels should more than satisfy the majority of stomach sleepers.
The 13” model
Simply put, we feel this mattress will be too soft for most stomach sleepers.

- Not recommended if you have latex or wool allergies. We do acknowledge latex allergies are contact in nature and should pose no danger.

Who Will Like This Mattress

If you prefer to sleep cooler, this mattress will be right for you. Organic latex is far less heat retentive than memory foam.
Those in search of multiple firmness options can choose a separate firmness level for either side of a split king or split queen set.
Who Will Not Like This Mattress
Memory foam lovers who prefer deep body hug and conformity will not like this mattress. It’s a personal preference; not a question of right or wrong. For those that fit this description, the Botanical Bliss will have too much bounce.
Latex or wool allergy sufferers should consider other safer options.
Unboxing and Setup
Natural latex is quite heavy, you may need a hand getting it out of the box and into its resting place. Once you maneuver the mattress into the bedroom, it needs to be unpacked from the plastic seal. We recommend placing your mattress on the the bed prior to unwrapping. Being careful not to damage the fabric, carefully cut through the protective plastic. Once the vacuum seal is broken, your mattress will expand quickly. However, It will still need time to decompress and aerate. Although you can lay down on your bed right away, the The Botanical Bliss will fully expand in a few hours.
Note: As with any quality mattress, It’s essential a Queen or King have a frame with a sturdy center support and additional legs on the ground. Over time, Inferior frames can affect the support and longevity of your mattress.
