OMI Introduces Certified-Organic Pillow Toppers

To pair with OMI’s Certified-Organic Mattresses, we have introduced a line of Certified-Organic Pillow Toppers. The pillow tops have the same guaranteed purity as the mattresses, because they are made from the same certified-organic raw materials.

Made with certified-organic Eco-Wool or certified-organic latex, our pillow tops offer a welcome layer of plushness. Wool is a wonderful natural choice for a sleep surface. Cool in summer and warm in winter, it wicks away moisture and dissipates it into the air over time. Natural rubber adds a supportive softness, cushioning pressure points while resisting body impressions. Covered in certified-organic cotton sateen fabric, our pillow tops add a luxurious feel to any mattress.

The Wooly Lite (1.5”)

The economical 1.5”-deep Eco-Wool Wooly Lite is perfectly suited for the sleeper who needs just a little extra surface cushioning.

The Wooly (3”)

The 3”-deep Eco-Wool Wooly is well suited for sleepers who need a softer surface depth or who enjoy a bed with a “nesting” feel.

The Wave (3”)

The new Wave pillow top is made of 3” of GOLS-certified organic natural rubber latex encased in certified-organic cotton knit fabric. The Wave features a sculpted surface to provide comfort for sleepers with pressure-point issues. This comfortable and resilient natural-rubber pillow top provides added surface depth for sleepers, but with more firmness than a wool topper and without reducing the support of the mattress.

Our 2”-thick natural rubber topper offers surface softness. It is made with a single core of GOLS-certified organic natural rubber latex sap, and is covered with our signature OrganicPedic® knit quilting.

Why Your Brain Needs Sleep

Posted on

Many scientists have studied sleep and why it is that we devote so much of our time to sleeping. New evidence from a recent study by Maiken Nedergaaed and colleagues at the University of Rochester in New York has refreshed a long-held hypothesis that during sleep the brain cleans itself. The scientists studied mice to find that sleep allows fluids to easily run through the brain and clean out metabolic toxins, essentially cleaning the brain of garbage. Check out this video from D News about the study and it’s findings.  

Make sure you get your sleep so you can dump the junk from your brain!
