When it comes to materials in and around your home, we believe natural is best. That’s because this planet was created perfectly and we know for a fact that the things it makes are the best things for us. Fresh air instead of pollution. Natural scents instead of manufactured ones. And products made from Mother Earth’s own stock, instead of the plastics and other manufactured materials we churn out on a daily basis.
Your bedroom should be dressed particularly carefully, because you sleep in there, and you spend approximately a third of your life doing so. When you sleep you are vulnerable and breathe deeply. Plus, sleep is a time for rest and relaxation, and nothing is more relaxing to the human body than nature and natural products.
Without further ado, here are our top five natural products for the bedroom.
We’re obviously going to start with our own wonderful products. Ely mattresses are made from all natural materials, which means they are:
This warm and spicy candle is perfect for before bedtime because of its calming and cozy aroma. It has notes of cedarwood, ginger flower and nutmeg, for a really warming scent that will make you feel ready for bed.
Made with soy, an eco-friendly, synthetic free ingredient, and without the use of beeswax, the pure essential oils used to give these candles their fragrance is made to be long lasting, so you won’t need to have them on long to inspire hours of delicious smells. They come in a really pretty brown glass holder, which will add a touch of class and style to your bedroom.
Dried flowers are so on-trend right now. They’re as beautiful as fresh flowers but they last longer because they’re dried out. Flowers from Mud Urban Flowers can last over a year if they are taken care of, which not only saves you money, but it leaves the more flowers where they should be; in the ground. That’s so important for bees.
So bring beautiful flowers into your home in a sustainable way. We absolutely love this Mini Baked Alaska bouquet, which we think will give a classy and decorative touch to absolutely any bedroom in any colour scheme.
Sticking with neutral tones, we absolutely love this 100% cotton bedspread from made.com. It’s the perfect complement to any neutral decor and, because it’s cotton, that means it will be breathable, which is great for hot summer nights. It means that any moisture you excrete will be wicked away. Paired with an Ely mattress, which is also made from cotton and a wool/horsehair blend, you’ll be totally sweat free!
Jute rugs are made from dried plant fibres, which means they are very durable and low-maintenance. They’re available in neutral materials or with woven patterns, so there will absolutely be a jute rug whatever style your bedroom.
If you’re a fan of the boho or rustic look, a jute rug will fit right in with the rest of your decor.
If you’re not sure if a jute rug on its own is enough, consider using it as a base. Layer another rug made from a different natural material on top for a different vibe. You can then swap these rugs out whenever your mood changes to alter the setting and create a different atmosphere.
If you are looking to buy natural materials, just make sure that what you are buying is actually natural, not just listed as ‘natural looking’. Lots of sellers out there are aware of the natural trend and are trying to get onboard when their products are anything but. Do your research, and always read the reviews.
