Pure Organic & Luxurious Pillows by Obasan

Second to the kitchen I consider the bedroom to be the most important room in the house.  The bedroom is a sanctuary, a place to relax and refresh.   After an exhausting day there is nothing like crawling into a nice comfy bed.

I just recently read an article concerning the dangers of toxic chemicals of mass produced mattresses and pillows.  Sleeping is about restoring and refreshing your body and immune system, however, when we put ourselves in close proximity to these toxic chemicals we are not only defeating our purpose, but we're compromising our health.

Polystyrene, polyurethane foam and polyethylene are commonly found in pillows today.  They are made with toxic chemicals and I'm sure you will agree this is not something you want near your face. Mold and bed bugs pose another threat.  So what are we to do for a safe nights sleep?



Sleeptek has been in the business of producing safe, comfy bedding for over twenty five years.  All the materials used in their bedding are Fair Trade and their Organic Cotton is G.O.T.S certified.   Their Obasan line features organic mattresses, bedding, pillows and even pet beds. 


Traditional cotton is inundated with toxins.  Obasan, however, uses the finest and purest cotton.  "...  cultivated in a centuries-old traditional, cooperative manner in the Canete and Chincha valleys found high in the Peruvian Andes."


Void of Toxic chemicals inhaled during sleep, comfortable and soft to touch, absorbent and breathable, maximizing air circulation and minimizing perspiration.


"Obasan uses only the finest grade A natural rubber.  Obasan rubber is harvested by tapping the milk (sap) of Hevea brasiliensis (the common rubber tree). The trees grow in North Malaysian plantations especially selected for their high-quality product."  The process of keeping the rubber pure requires much effort and Obasan has kept their integrity by not compromising their standards.  

Retention in Shape and firmness
Flexibility combined with stability (for continuous sleep comfort)
Excellent heat and moisture regulation
Superior air circulation (for preventing the growth of molds and mildew

Happy sheep make happy wool.  Obasan wool comes from Argentina where the sheep happily graze in a 100% Chemical free environment.   The wool is washed with vegetable-based agents only!

The benefits of happy wool:

Naturally flame-retardant and repellent to dust mites
Absorbent (able to absorb 30 percent moisture and remain dry-perfect for "night sweats")

Cool in summer, warm in winter 


My goal is to eventually replace my mattress, but for now I'm starting with a pillow.  Obasan's pillows are as luxurious as they are healthy.

I received the standard size Saguenay Shredded Natural Pillow by Obasan.  For starters this is a rather big pillow, much bigger and fuller than my last pillow.    The pillow is very malleable yet buoyant. That is, the pillow will mold to the shape of your head without losing its shape or firmness.  Overall the pillow is soft yet firm which is important for a healthy neck and spine.

 I find the pillow to be incredibly comfortable and I like that I'm not waking up with neck pain. 

The perfect temperature. This pillow retains a nice temperature throughout the night. The Obasan natural rubber pillow can really help with night sweats. I tend to get night sweats during the night due to getting over-heated while I sleep, because the pillow remains at a neutral temperature it helps my body to not get so over-heated.  Whereas my last pillow would get too hot during the night, waking up soak and wet is no fun.

The pillow comes with a nice, thick cotton covering.  Don't keep it in the drier too long or it will shrink.  The pillow itself is also machine washable. The pillow is durable and will no doubt last for years and years.

So many benefits to be had by choosing a truly organic pillow.  Obasan has done a great job and I couldn't be more pleased.

Jeannette said...

(blog post comment re request on copter)
It is amazing to me that anyone could have such issues with finding a good pillow, but I have...I can not tell you how many I have purchased over the years and ended up throwing away for one reason or another. One of the big reasons is that I have horrible allergies and react to just about anything. I am really hoping I can win this giveaway and perhaps try out these pillows and finally find the right one for me;0) Thanks for such a great giveaway opportunity!
