Review and Giveaway: NaturaWorld CLOSED



I remember back to Nate's newborn days, when my wiser elders gave me their best piece of advice: nap while the baby naps. While it sounded good in theory, it escaped me in practice. As soon as Nate would doze off, I would look around and see the federal disaster area that surrounded me. Dishes piled up in the sink. Trash overflowing in the bin. Laundry bulging from the hamper. Dust bunnies crawling about. By the time I would straighten up, Nate would be waking with a whimper. Even now, I am rarely able to squeeze in a nap at the same time as my bouncing baby boy.

But tomorrow, we'll all have an excuse to indulge in some much-warranted shut eye. March 15th is National Napping Day! And I have just the company to help you celebrate with a sensational siesta.

NaturaWorld
was founded by a Canadian father/son team who wanted to solve the mystery behind achieving a healthy lifestyle. Their mission is to "help customers achieve a superior night's sleep, alleviate pain and increase comfort through unique and exceptional sleep systems that aid overall health and well-being." At Natura, you'll find green and organic mattresses, pillows, and bedding for the entire family - even children and pets! Natura is committed to transparency, which is why all of their product tags will tell you exactly what components are certified organic so you can make an educated choice. No "greenwashing" here! Natura also provides sleep tips and advice so you can optimize your sleep experience and get the most out of your restful hours.

We received several products from Natura to review.

The Aloe Dream Mate pillow features a granulated Talalay latext core, which mimics the cuddly feel of down but provides springy support that won't pack down for molding support and soothing pressure relief. The core guarantees maximum air circulation, while its Natura SmartWool lining acts as an insulator to eliminate excess humidity, regulate temperature and wick away moisture for a fresh, dry sleep environment. The cotton-blend cover is infused with aloe to further regulate temperature and moisturize your face overnight. The Aloe Dream Mate is naturally antimicrobial, hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant.



I've given a lot of thought to the mattress we sleep on but I'll admit that I never really considered how my pillow could affect my rest. I always just bought the cheapest ones I could find, wrapped it with a pillowcase and called it a day night. Since I've had the Aloe Dream Mate, I feel like I've been floating on a cloud. It's so soft and cushiony, I just sink into it. I like that I can bunch it up to give me just the right level of comfort. The aloe smell is also really relaxing. I find that I fall asleep faster now and that I wake up feeling more well-rested since I've had this pillow.

If you prefer firm support, you would probably want to use a second pillow underneath this one, as it is very squishy. But I personally like something with a bit more give, so this is perfect for me. The only thing I don't like is that the cover is not removable and is spot clean only. But since it is antimicrobial, I am hopeful it will survive my drool much longer than our traditional pillows.

Natura also sent us the Sunshine pillow, which is designed especially for children. It features a latex core and reversible unbleached, 100% cotton/terry cloth cover. As with the Aloe Dream Mate, it provides proper head and neck support, maximum air circulation and moisture resistance. It is also antimicrobial, hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant.



At 19.5 months, Nate is still a little young and prefers to sleep on a flat surface at night. However, during the day, he has been carrying around and laying on his Sunshine pillow. Mommy and Daddy have even stolen it to rest on as we relax on the sofa and we can vouch that it's pretty comfortable too. I know pictures speak louder than words so here's a short video I took of Nate napping soundly on his new pillow:



The last item that Natura generously sent us was the Re-Groove N.8 Aromatherapy Mist. This spray is water-based so it is safe to use on all fabrics - even your body! The Green Tea & Aloe scent smells sooooo good. It reminds me of a trip to the day spa, except I don't have to leave my house! I've been spraying our linens every night before bed and it instantly prepares me for bedtime.



Bottom line: As a mom, I know it's hard, or nearly impossible, to always get a good stretch of sleep at night. But with NaturaWorld, you can get the comfort you need for a deeper, quality sleep - even if it's in spurts or a 20-minute power nap. I love Natura's vast selection of products and that many of them are organic with our health and safety in mind.

BUY IT: You can purchase the Aloe Dream Mate pillow (ARV $84), Sunshine pillow (ARV $31.20), Re-Groove N.8 Spray (ARV $9.60-$14.40) or other Natura products online at www.naturaworld.com. If you'd rather test their products in-person, just use their dealer locator to find a store near you!
