Organic Body Pillows for a Better Night’s Sleep (Savvy Rest Review)

Savvy Rest Organic Kapok Body Pillow

According to the American Sleep Association, 35.3% adults report less than seven hours of restful sleep each night. There are many things that contribute to unrestful sleep, but the quality of your bedding actually has a lot to do with it. And the thought of replacing a whole mattress might sound daunting to you (and your wallet!), so today I’m going to share a less expensive option that can have a HUGE impact on your quality of sleep! 😴

Enter the body pillow. Have you ever tried one of these? I never have until recently – but then I started using a Savvy Rest organic kapok body pillow. I have always been a side-sleeper and even used a small pillow between my knees, but even that was not totally comfortable. So this body pillow has literally been amazing because it provides a cushion between my arms, knees, and legs while I sleep on my side.

Savvy Rest was kind enough to send me a body pillow for free, but all opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.

Benefits of Sleeping with a Body Pillow

What makes a body pillow so great? So many things!

  • Super comfortable, especially for side sleepers, pregnant women, or those with back pain and injuries
  • Body pillows support your top leg, torso, and upper arm while you sleep, which keeps your spine in alignment
  • Relieves pressure on the lower back, spine, and hips, and pressure points
  • Lessens tossing and turning (I totally have noticed that I sleep like a rock since using my body pillow!)
  • Relaxes muscles along the spine
  • Improves weight distribution and blood circulation

Why Use a Savvy Rest Organic Pillow

The reason I use Savvy Rest pillows compared to other brands is that they are organic (and also a great brand)! You might think that sounds crazy, but it’s actually super important! Especially since you’re using it against your body for 8+ hours every night 🛌

  • Organic kapok is a natural alternative to down pillows
  • They never use pesticides, bleaches, or harmful dyes (conventional cotton is heavily sprayed with pesticides!)
  • Chemicals and flame retardants on most conventional bedding has been linked to numerous health problems
  • They use only the purest natural latex from trusted suppliers that have been independently tested and certified
  • Their warehouse, woodshop, and sewing facilities are all GOTS-certified (Global Organic Textile Standard)
  • Savvy Rest is GREENGUARD certified, which means their products have low chemical emissions and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) into indoor air
  • Pillows come with an unbleached, organic cotton casing with a soft flannel finish
  • They offer many different fills and textures, so you can customize your pillow to your liking (also available in different lengths – I have the 15”)
  • Certified B Corp with a commitment to sustainability
  • Great customer service

P.S. even my dog sleeps on an organic Savvy Rest dog bed. My husband and I also have their regular pillows and love them! (he uses the Organic Latex Contour Pillow and I use the Shredded Latex Pillow)
