While going all natural is by far the best thing we can do for ourselves and our families it isn’t always (or ever) the cheapest. And this does not exclude mattresses. ‘You get what you pay for’ really rings true and nothing could have said this louder to me than the $6,000 king size all-natural latex mattress I was looking at years ago online. O.O With prices like that I knew God would have to perform some ginormous miracle for me to ever get a latex mattress.
I assumed only people financially well off could be that healthy.
And then years passed and God did something. He put it on my husband’s heart to want to downsize our mattress so we could sleep closer. Not a bad idea. Not at all. I was totally game! Long story short we purchased a cheap mattress with the intention to buy a ‘better’ one (not latex) in a year or so. We were saving money and thought this would be best.
Then low and behold, only a few months later, we began waking up with arms and legs numb. Now, I have a spine issue but my husband doesn’t. This my friends was freaky! It was also what led us to one of the best investments we’ve ever made! And it wasn’t $6,000!
After MUCH research on my part my husband began to research all natural, botanical latex mattresses. He had heard me cry out to God for years about getting one. You see, my parents had one back in the day and they gave it to me when they decided to get a King size mattress. That was the best sleep I had ever had and I never forgot it!! How could a mama to 5 girls ever forget the best sleep she’s ever had? lol
Sadly, finding well made products of any kind can be difficult in our day and age which is another reason I pray. Some companies are shiesty, money hungry businesses with no interest in us other than our money. By the grace of God we stumbled upon Plush Beds. They were the second place we called.
The gentleman, John, that we spoke to on speaker phone was extremely nice and very informative. He explained in detail where their latex was made, how it was made, and why they didn’t use adhesives like the previous company we had called.
He was very educated on his competition but wasn’t derogatory about them which impressed us even more. Just so you know, we had to leave a message with someone before we were able to speak with John. They’re that busy. You can read their incredible reviews and check them out with BBB.
When John found out how my husband and I were having limbs that were going numb he immediately said that he would rush delivery for us at no extra charge. (even though delivery was supposed to be weeks out) He knew we were buying the mattress. We were already sold. He didn’t have to do this, but he did and at no extra charge. We had our mattress in less than one week from the date of sale!
It’s been weeks now and I can’t say enough good things about Plush Beds ! The service, their products, everything was perfect! Even their price was incredible! We got a phenomenal deal on an Organic, Botanical, all-Natural Latex mattress and we got free sheets, the softest I’ve ever slept on might I add, and two latex pillows! I love my pillow!
I don’t foresee us having to buy new mattresses any time soon but we will be back to purchase some for our daughters as God sees fit financially!
So if you’re shopping for all-natural mattresses, consider latex. It is by far my most favorite mattress ever. I just don’t think springs can compare and memory foam is anything but natural. Also, when shopping for latex, keep in mind that not all latex mattresses or pillows are created equal. Do your research. Read reviews and my favorite… pray.
