03 Jun Dormeo Octasense Pillow in the Spotlight
Cast your mind back… Do you know how old your own pillows are? If you’re struggling to remember, it’s probably time they were replaced. The Sleep Council recommends that pillows should be replaced every two years and duvets every five.
Your pillow is vitally important to getting a good night’s sleep. After all, it supports your head (which, for an average adult, weighs an impressive 11lb) and aligns your neck with your spine. Anyone who has ever fallen asleep upright and woken up with a crick in their neck will know how incredibly important this is. Some experts say that if you can fold your pillow in half without it flipping back into shape, it has lost its support and needs to be replaced.
Even if you only manage 6 hours sleep a night, your pillow will be doing its best to aid your sleep for over 2000 hours per year. A worn out pillow can’t do its job properly – it can lead to neck pain caused by a lack of proper support but it is also a common cause of allergic reactions in allergy sufferers as dust mites and other bacteria just love to make pillows their home.
Memory Foam Pillow
Amongst all the doom and gloom, there is some good news…
Memory foam pillows are made from inorganic fibres. As such, they don’t provide any tasty, life-sustaining food for nasty, hungry dust-mites to feed on. As a result, dust-mites can’t thrive and will avoid them. All Dormeo memory foam pillows are therefore naturally hypo-allergenic. They inhibit the growth of mould, fungus and dust mites and are therefore a fantastic choice whether you are an allergy sufferer or not.
Introducing the Dormeo Octasense pillow!
You may have already seen the Dormeo Octasense Pillow on TV, take a look at the video below if you haven’t. The Dormeo Octasense pillow uses a revolutionary 2-in-1 design and patented Octaspring® technology to bring you the latest innovation in sleep comfort.
It’s unique design combines classic and anatomic support all rolled up into one pillow. The Octaspring® tube is our next generation, patented sleep technology that adapts 3 dimensionally to your neck and back whilst offering 5 x better ventilation versus traditional foam.
Two-sided Comfort with Reversible 2-in-1 Design
The Dormeo® Octasense pillow offers a unique reversible 2-in-1 design, which combines two different support levels in one pillow.
Choose the anatomic side with breathable Octaspring® technology for added neck support or flip it over and enjoy the classic feel of a deep, soft pillow with extra soft microfibers.
The whole pillow is encased in a plush knit pillowcase with built in air mesh sides, which allows heat and moisture to escape throughout the night ensuring you remain cool and refreshed.
The Dormeo® Octasense pillow includes a special anti-bacterial, anti-dust mite and anti-fungal treatment which makes it the ideal choice for allergy sufferers and, for extra hygiene, the pillow is also machine washable at 40 degrees.
Green tea has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries to treat everything from headaches to depression. The leaves are supposedly richer in antioxidants than other types of tea and contain B vitamins, folic acid, manganese, potassium, magnesium and other antioxidants. It is alleged to boost weight loss, reduce cholesterol, combat cardiovascular disease, and prevent cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
Infused with green tea, the Dormeo® Octasense pillow brings all of these benefits right into your bedroom, helping you to relax, unwind and experience a deep and rejuvenating sleep. The Octasense pillow is designed to suit everybody, every sleeping position and every pillow preference.
Pillow Buying Advice
– Allergy sufferers should opt for memory foam pillows. The Dormeo® Octasense pillow is highly recommended for allergy sufferers due to the addition of a special anti-bacterial, anti-dust mite and anti-fungal treatment.
– No pillow is 100% dust mite free unless it’s brand new, so all pillows should be fitted on day one with washable, anti-allergen covers. Wash the covers frequently.
– If you have a machine washable pillow, kill dust mites by washing it regularly. If you don’t, put it in the freezer for 24 hours. The Dormeo® Octasense pillow is washable at 40 degrees.
– Front or back sleepers should pick slimmer pillows than side sleepers. The Dormeo® Octasense pillow is suitable for everybody, no matter what your sleeping position.
– Look for a pillow that fills the gap between your head and shoulders when you lie down.
– Don’t rush to buy the first pillow you see. Quality memory foam pillows offer superb support and benefits – they are worth the investment.
