My mamma would dig little holes (though I helped dig one or two) and I’d drop the bulbs in and canopy them with dirt. Eventually they grew into lovely, colourful flowers that I may say I helped plant. it had been one thing we tend to did each year.You shouldn’t stop at flowers although.

What is off-gassing? Why should we care?

Friday, December 30, 2016 11:06:33 AM America/Los_Angeles

What is off-gassing? Why should we care?

Off-gassing are the chemical from manufactured products that emits into the air.There are limited definite studies that are conclusive–however, there are still many reasons to be aware of the dangers of off-gassing. Testimonies and anecdotal reports from customers strongly suggests there’s a link between off-gassing and health. (1)We want to specifically address off-gassing from beds because of how much time we spend a night on our beds. That’s a long time in close proximity to off-gassing chemicals.People believe after the products initially air out and the smell is barely noticeable, the chemical have completely disappeared into the air. That’s not true. (2)The longer we own a mattress, the more the toxic compounds can break down over time, which doesn’t always have a noticeable odor. (2) Health risks become real at this point.

Findings for health concerns:

  • Disrupting hormone levels in thyroid. Studies found flame retardants, like PBDE affect the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is located in front of your neck and takes care of your metabolism, heart and digestion function, bone maintenance, brain development, and muscle control. (3)
  • Affecting neuronal pathway. Pathways in your  brain is affected by the flame retardant, PBDE, according to studies. It can affect development, learning, and memory.
  • Brain dysfunction. Chemical exposure lead to poorer quality of life and neurocognitive impairment. It may lead to disorders that affect the brain including memory and attention.
  • Reducing Fertility. Studies show increase levels of PBDE flame retardants were associated with pregnancy. It could take even longer to achieve a successful pregnancy.
  • Exacerbating Allergies. Off gassing can make asthma worse. It ranges from puffy eyes, red and watery eyes, runny nose, congestion, coughing, and skin irritation.
  • Asthma and other respiratory problems.

 Of course any health effects depend entirely on particular chemicals involved, chemical concentration, and how long the exposure.

What to do?

Ideally, buying new organic or all natural bedding will significantly reduce the chance of off-gassing and its effect.However, it’s not just the mattresses, Bugs like cotton too.  It’s important to take precaution on other bedding as well, especially those with cotton.Twenty-five percent of agricultural chemicals are used to grow cotton. And these residual insecticides are with us while we sleep. Every night.  (1)Organic 100% cotton makes a huge different in off-gassing. Other natural products and alternatives will include wool, latex, bamboo, real down, and cottonTeamed with Organic Textiles LCC, we do our best to decrease the toxicity and off-gassing for our customers, also protecting our own workers and manufacturers from toxicity.To look more in depth of the descriptions of each one, click here.

Give the Gift of Caring this Holiday

Thursday, December 8, 2016 9:45:06 AM America/Los_Angeles

It may seem like it’s not worth mentioning since the act of giving is already an act of caring.

But the gift of caring runs so much deeper.

When we say “Gift of Caring,” we mean gifts that will affect your loved ones in the long run. Traditionally, gifts are movie tickets, gift certificate, candy Santa jars with a chocolate is a cute idea and chocolate can be fine throughout a long period of time—but it’s fleeing. We are growing older, even at this very minute. It’s inevitable that we progress to old age, where everything that’s been done in our 20’s and 30’s will catch up to us. As we get even older, we are at an increasing risk for health problems. That’s why the gift of caring is necessary for both the young and old.

The Gift of Organic

When you care about someone, you care about their health, physical wellness, mental wellness—everything to increase their quality of life. What is ingested, what is worn and your environment goes under scrutiny and contributes heavily to health. It’s important to decrease the toxicity exposure from harsh chemicals and pesticides. It’s not just a fad. There are countless studies that have been done. Typically when we hear “organic” we think of dairy and produce; however, textiles is equally important, especially since we spend a chunk of our lives in bed every night. To show we care, giving the gift of a long-term impact is an excellent way of saying “you matter.” - If your loved one is in need of a new pillow, give them organic latex for comfort and better support. - If your loved one has issues with allergy in their old dusty comforters, give them down alternative, which is much more hypoallergenic and microbial resistant. o Also the weather is getting colder. - If your loved one has a bed that’s not as comfortable as it can be, throw in latex mattress topper—which is a more natural equivalent alternative to memory foam. - 100% Organic bed sheets are an easier go to if you do not know whether or not they need new blankets or pillows. Here at Well Living shop in Team work with Organic Textiles LLC, we want to stress the holiday season is a perfect time to practice the gift of giving (assuming you’re not the Scrooge before the three ghost visits). Keep a look out for our upcoming holiday and gift giving sale.

Choosing And Caring For kid's Bedding

Thursday, December 1, 2016 1:09:54 AM America/Los_Angeles

By getting a set, you not only get a great quilt that will keep you cozy, but you will also receive at least one pillow sham. When buying a twin sized quilt you will most likely get one sham, and larger quilts will come with two or three shams.

What affects the memory topper directly, in terms of firmness and recovery, is the temperature of the environment. Increase in heat also means increase in pliability and recovery rate of the foam. Decrease or cool down of the temperature on the other hand makes the foam firmer and even stiff.

The reason for getting one of the Organic comforter sets is definitely to keep you warm and comfortable. Although you may want to get a set that is of reasonable cost, make sure you do not overlook this requirement. You want both style and function.

Comforter bedding sets are available in many different sizes. They usually include a comforter and matching pillow covers, called shams. Some sets may also include a bed skirt (also known as a dust ruffle) and may have coordinating sheets and curtains that can be purchased separately. This makes it easier to design a room that looks coordinated and put together.

Today, the available bedding sets you will be using are different than they used to be. This choice is an important one, as this is the fabric that your baby will rest on. The most of the popular fabric is cotton, it is durable, easy to clean, yet very soft against your baby's skin. A flannel bedding set is another good choice, especially if you live in a colder region of the country. Flannel is verygood because it keeps your baby nice and warm.

Try to use an omalon foam mattress topper. Omalon foam has larger elliptical structure. They have undergone densification processes. If you are more on the heavy side, you need this not only to prolong the life of your primary bed but also cheap mattress sets to improve the comfort that you feel when sleeping. Elliptical structure of cells is better because it is more resilient. It goes back to its original shape right away. Look for a mattress topper or a mattress pad with this structure.

Guide to Choosing Your Organic Bedding

Tuesday, November 8, 2016 1:58:19 AM America/Los_Angeles

Have you heard a lot of chatter about organic bedding, but aren’t sure what is true and what is just hype? This ultimate guide explains everything you need to know about this bedding so that you can determine what’s fact and what’s fiction.

What Does It Mean to Be Organic?

Let’s start with the basics– What does it mean for a bed set to be organic? Well, the USDA considers a product to be organic if it is made from all natural sources and no pesticides or other chemicals are used to produce it.

For instance, are cotton sheets organic? You might think so because cotton is a natural fiber. However, most cotton sheets aren’t considered to be organic because cotton is almost always treated with pesticides. This is because cotton is very susceptible to parasites and struggles to grow without this extra protection. Additionally, most cotton sheets aren’t 100% natural because they’re treated with chemicals to help them become fire and wrinkle resistant.

If they’re treated with pesticides and chemicals, they’re not organic. However, more and more companies are producing chemical-free, organic bed sets in response to the increased demand for natural products. Today, you can find bamboo and silk sheets and comforters that have never been treated with chemicals. You just need to find a company that prides itself on its high-quality, all-natural products.

Why Should You Buy Organic Bedding?

Organic and all-natural items have become increasingly popular over the past few years. There’s everything from organic food to organic clothes and bedding. Yet, what exactly does it mean for something to be organic? Why should you choose organic products, such as organic bamboo bedding, over traditional merchandise?

Now that you know what it means to be organic, why should you buy a set of natural sheets and a comforter? There are quite a few reasons to buy organic bedding, including:

It is eco-friendly.
It is hypoallergenic.
It is more comfortable.

Benefits of Natural and Organic Latex: Talalay vs. Dunlop

Friday, October 28, 2016 9:23:14 PM America/Los_Angeles

Here at Well Living Shop, we’ve done extensive research on the best organic, all natural products for our customer to have a comfortable night’s sleep.

Our research boils down to organic and natural latex.

It’s breathable with natural temperature control, yet still hypoallergenic; it’s durable and very supportive for our bodily structural needs; and best of all it is much more chemically safe than other products with polyurethane or memory foam.

Latex is a milky liquid that comes naturally from a rubber tree. It turns into latex by two main methods: Talalay and Dunlop.

Which is better depends on individual preferences—there are pros and cons to both depending on needs.

  

Dunlop

Talalay 

How was it founded?

In 1929 (UK), A research scientist working at Dunlop Tyre and Rubber Company accidently discovered that mixing together and heating soap, gelling agents, and liquid latex would create a latex foam.  

Because of this, this method is time-tested for reliability.

 In 2935 (Russia), Ansil, Leon, and Joseph Talalay reinvented the latex rubber products.

 

This new engineering has created a more consistent texture through improvement and evolution of the older method. 

Engineering

After the liquid from the rubber tree has been extracted, it is whipped and frothed, placed into a mold, and baked steam.

 

This is a simpler and less expensive method to manufacture.

Talalay uses a similar formula for Dunlop, except it also includes a vacuum and deep freeze immediate after results in a more consistent cell structure after baked. 

This method uses fewer raw materials for manufacturing. 

Texture

Dunlop can feel more “dense” due to the firmer bottom layer.

During the baking process, sediments in the mixture “settle” towards the bottom, making it more firm towards the bottom.

Talalay has a more consistent texture of latex and may feel plushy when compressed.

Talalay latex can also elongate more due to a better tensile strength.

 

Air Circulation

Dense foam tends to have less air circulation within latex—however the conveniently larger pinholes balance air circulation.

Talalay tends to be breathable, making it an excellent choice for those who sleeps “hot” in combination with the smaller pinholes.

Bouncy or Springy

Customers have reported Dunlop is more bouncy and buoyant since it doesn’t feel like they are “sinking.”

 

They reported it feels like they are “floating” on the mattress.

Customers reported Talalay is springy, easily bounces back when folded or compressed.

 

They also reported Talalay latex to be lighter and softer to sink into.

Support

The lower firmer portion of Dunlop latex creates a higher support factor.

Comparing Talalay with the same density and size of the Dunlop, Talalay does tend to be much softer and springier. However, our firmer Talalay can also provide the support when needed.

Sleeping Positions

Customers have said they prefer Dunlop latex as it provides more support.

Some of customers state that they prefer this mattress especially if they are a side sleeper, as it’s easier to switch positions and will not feel like it’s “sinking.” Again, it depends on preference.

This tends to be the most preferred comfort layer of a mattress.

It’s consistently soft texture will feel plushy and completely conform to the body, making it for back sleepers.

The firmer version can also be made into a support layer as well.
