Natural & Organic Latex Mattresses For Sweeter Dreams

We spend nearly a third of our lives resting and recharging, so isn’t it important that we get the good night’s sleep we deserve? Most mattresses include chemicals, flame retardants, and other materials we can’t even begin to pronounce—but these 5 all-natural latex mattresses will give you the refreshing rest you need, without any of the potentially harmful side effects.

If you’re new to natural latex, here’s the lowdown: natural latex is made from the sap of a rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis), which makes it resistant to dust mites, mildew, and mold. Plus, it’s naturally hypoallergenic and doesn’t have any off-gassing, which is key for those who are sensitive to smells. And it’s worth the investment: while innerspring mattresses typically last 5-10 years, natural latex mattresses can support our sleep—and our bodies—for up to 30 years.

By manufacturing these mattresses in the USA, these businesses reduce their environmental footprint and keep costs affordable by cutting out the middleman. Some even give back to their communities, from supporting clean energy organizations to awarding scholarships. So whether you’re looking to do good for your health, the community, or the planet, these natural latex mattress brands have got you covered.

Avocado Mattress Review | “Recently I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and arthritis in my neck. I'm a stomach sleeper and in order to not make things worse, I needed to learn to sleep on my side. Well, my old mattress caused me all kinds of aches and pains… I wanted the most non-toxic bed I could get for my money ($1400-$1600). I was skeptical purchasing a bed over the internet but all my research kept leading me to the Avocado. And, I have to say from the first night I slept in this bed I've had some of the best night’s sleep I've had in years! I can't recommend it enough!” — Heather L.

2. Zenhaven

Organic Materials | 100% certified organic wool and cotton
Mattress Type | Natural American Talalay latex

The Zenhaven Mattress takes luxury to the next level with their natural latex mattress. Combining their pure tree-tapped American Talalay latex, layered organic wool, and organic cotton cover, the Zenhaven is known for a breathable and cool night’s sleep. What we love most is that they provide a variety of choices to customize the bed in the way that’s most comfortable for you, rather than a “one size sleeps all” option. You can ask for a softer, plush mattress or the gentle firm, you can choose to include an adjustable base for elevation and comfort, or include a foundation. All of this includes free white glove delivery and mattress removal. Not convinced quite yet? Give them a try for up to 120 nights for a home trial—and their 0% APR financing makes this more affordable than you’d think. Zenhaven has also donated mattresses to those in need all over the US, from Los Angeles to the Jersey Shore, so they know a thing or two about being both restful and mindful.

Zenhaven Mattress Review | “After much shopping and research and laying on mattresses at different stores, we ordered a Zenhaven set. We had the delivery team place it on the Luxury Plush side. Took just a few days for us to love this mattress… With the 20 yr. guarantee, this may be the last set we ever buy. I would recommend this mattress to anyone wanting to sleep on top of a bed instead of sinking into one.” — Brenda K.

When it comes to natural and organic mattresses, PlushBeds leads the industry by a mile. Their 9” Botanical Bliss Mattress is no exception: it’s GreenGuard Gold Certified, comes with 5 layers of support comprised of organic latex, cotton, and wool, and comes with your choice of firmness from soft for  side sleepers to firm especially for back sleepers. (And if 9” isn’t enough, they offer 10” and 12” options, too!) They’re so confident you’ll love it—and customers agree—that they provide a 100-day trial period and a 25-year warranty, free shipping and exchanges. PlushBeds gives back, too: they offer scholarships to students pursuing environmentally-related degrees so we can create a healthier, more eco-friendly future.

PlushBeds Mattress Review | “The biggest reason for buying this bed was the natural materials. I am completely sensitive to smells and synthetic materials. The Botanical Bliss bed arrived quickly and there was absolutely no smell when we unpacked it. I've slept on it a couple of nights and love it. Supportive and comfortable, with enough 'give' that you don't have any stiffness or sore spots in your body in the morning. Love this mattress!” — Bill & Catherine S.

4. Spindle Mattress

Organic Materials | 100% certified organic cotton
Mattress Type | Natural Dunlop latex, adjustable firmness
Features | Made in America, 1-year comfort adjustment, 10-year warranty
Sizes | Twin through King
Where To Buy | Online  
Price | Queen starting at $1349

Spindle’s Dunlop Latex Mattress is one of the more straightforward options we’ve found for a natural latex mattress. Their materials are grown and harvested in areas from Guatemala, Texas, India, New Mexico, and the Pacific Northwest, while they come together beautifully in Massachusetts. Plus, you can choose one of four firmness options—and you have an entire year to switch to a different level of firmness if you need. The best part? You can easily assemble the layers yourself so you know exactly what you’re sleeping on each night. More affordable than most, they also include free shipping and a 10 year warranty, though we doubt you’ll need it.

Spindle Mattress Review | "I'm not a handyman but putting together [the] foundation and setting up [the] bed was easy. It probably took about an hour from boxes in garage to finish. I had help from my fiance but could have done it myself if I absolutely had to. We love the mattress. It is comfortable and supportive with no sinking in feeling... I do have to say it feels different than any mattress that either of us ever had. It took me especially a few weeks to really get used to. I actually had a period of doubt but now I love it.” — David B.

5. Nest

Organic Materials | Organic cotton
Mattress Type | Natural latex, organic Dunlop latex available
Features | Made in America, 100-night trial, lifetime warranty
Sizes | Twin through California King (can be split)
Where To Buy | Online, showrooms across US

If you asked us what stands out above the rest with Nest, we’d easily say their lifetime warranty and the option for either a natural latex mattress or an organic Dunlop latex one. Their hybrid mattress weaves together wool, organic cotton, 28ILD-Medium Oeko-tex Certified Talalay Latex, and transitional foam for sleep you’ll simply cherish. Don’t worry if you’re not ready for that lifetime warranty just yet—give it a test run with their 100-night trial, and if you don’t love it, they offer free returns and exchanges. Plus, they offer 0% APR financing plans, so you can enjoy a good night’s sleep at just $89/month. $3 a night is worth it for the quality rest you’ll get.

Nest Mattress Review | "We replaced a traditional queen mattress and box spring combo with this mattress in king size on a platform bed. We first ordered the medium latex hybrid and found it was a bit too soft for us after about 90 days of use. Nest's customer service was great and allowed us to swap the medium latex layers for firm layers, and now we couldn't be happier. Note that you can also order a "split" layer of latex with 1 firm and 1 medium if you and your partner have different firmness preferences. This is the first mattress where I never wake up with any pain." — Graham S.
