Essentia Natural Memory Foam Pillow {Review}

Disclosure: I received the product mentioned to facilitate my review. Regardless, I only recommend products I feel would be good for my readers. All opinions are my own.


Having a chronic pain disorder I try to do everything possible to minimize the pain naturally. Part of that means sleeping well and being comfortable! When I was presented with the opportunity to review one of Essentia’s Natural Memory Foam Pillows, I was definitely interested! Upon learning more about Essentia I realized their story is similar to ours. We started looking for more natural and eco-friendly products after my husband’s cancer diagnosis and learning more about what is in the products we use.

Essentia’s founder actually got in the mattress industry after a family member’s cancer diagnosis. He became more aware of the toxins in products many people use every day – including their mattresses and pillows. He realized there weren’t many alternatives, though! That’s when Essentia is born, and that’s what makes them different. This is what he has to say about it:

That’s when I founded Essentia, more than a brand; a commitment to comfort and quality, without compromise.

Essentia offers the world’s only Natural Memory Foam. Most foam is filled with dangerous petrochemicals. We spend a lot of time in our beds. That is a lot of time to be exposed to harmful chemicals! Their Natural Memory Foam Mattresses and Pillows are more than just eco-friendly, they are comfortable and healthy, too! They have various Certifications and a 60 Day Guarantee.

Memory Foam Pillow

I received Essentia’s Natural Memory Foam Comfort Pillow for my review. Essentia’s Comfort Pillow combines shredded natural latex and conforms to your sleep style. So whether you are a side sleeper, back sleeper, or a little of everything like me – the Comfort Pillow is a flexible option! Plus it is breathable and hypoallergenic for a healthy sleep environment! It has the nice striped cover that can be unzipped and removed, so you don’t need an additional pillowcase!

I have been using my Comfort Pillow for about 2 weeks now, and I have been much more comfortable at night. The tension I often get in my neck (that often leads to headaches) has been much improved. I did have to get used to it at first because I have never used a pillow with that much support. It seems to be just what I need, though! Of course, the natural memory foam does conform to whichever way I am laying at the time (I move A LOT in my sleep), but it offers that support as well!

There are a couple of additional qualities I noticed about my new Comfort Pillow:

  • It doesn’t have “new pillow smell.” I don’t know how to explain it, but often new pillows have a sort of smell to them. I assume it’s from the materials and chemicals as well as the plastic in which they are sold. The Essentia Comfort Pillow didn’t have that. They didn’t wrap it in a bunch of synthetic materials for shipping, either!
  • Even the fabric is more eco-friendly. The fabrics are 100% organic.
  • The Comfort Pillow is similar to a traditional pillow as far as size and shape are concerned.

I’m very happy with my Essentia Comfort Pillow! It makes my nights more comfortable, so I can sleep better and not wake up stiff and sore! I can definitely appreciate the level of detail and drive they put into making their products eco-friendly. The Comfort Pillow would make a great gift for anyone on your list! They have many stores in the US and Canada, which you can find using their store locator. If there isn’t a store in your area yet, you can also order online!
