I am a firm believer that in order to achieve and maintain good health, one must maintain a healthy home. Our bodies absorb and respond to toxins not only from the food we eat, but also from the air we breathe and what we expose our skin to.
I am moving with my partner in a few months, and as we prepare for our first home together it’s been so exciting to seek out all-natural furniture, products and cleaning supplies. My hope is to live with as few chemicals as possible. We want to make our dream home a healthy home!
One of my favourite projects has been creating our new bedroom. To me, the bedroom is a sanctuary. It is a place for me to relax, unwind, and get the restorative sleep I need to be at my best. Consider your bed – you spend (hopefully!) 8 hours there every night. Your place of rest and rejuvenation should be pure, clean and free of nasties. It’s truly the most intimate place in the home!
Recently, I had the opportunity to try the Protect-A-Bed Mattress Protector. What a brilliant find! It’s amazing what a difference one simple product can make. It’s made from all-natural Eucalyptus based fibers, which wick moisture away from the surface. This keeps your mattress clean and dry, preventing bacteria and other toxins from building up where you sleep. It’s similar to human skin, in fact, as it’s waterproof but also air vapor porous. It’s naturally thermo-regulating, too, which keeps me comfortable even as the seasons change here in Sydney.
I love the simplicity of it – the fitted sheet style allows it to fit easily on a variety of mattresses, and it’s machine washable. The unique fiber – which is manufactured without pesticides – helps prevent allergens like bacteria and mould, as well as dust mites, that can reside in unprotected mattresses. Knowing that Protect-A-Bed is protecting me from nasties while I sleep honors my commitment to using clean, nontoxic products.
Best of all? It feels absolutely luxurious. Eucalyptus fiber is even smoother than cotton and is so soft and soothing on the skin. It would be a phenomenal product for someone with allergies and sensitive skin – or just for someone who wants to sleep like royalty! And we all deserve that.
The Protect-A-Bed Mattress Protector has a permanent place in my bedroom and will be making the move with me to my dream home in a few months. I love that I can rest easy, knowing that even while I sleep I am treating my body well.
