Well folks, it’s that time of year when the world decides to wake up from its slumber.
The sun illuminates our days a little longer, while the sound of birds rejoicing wakes us each morning as if scripted from a fairy tale. While the excitement for the spring season is well received by most, for others, the reality of enduring allergy season is accompanied by extreme dread. As a matter of fact, seasonal allergies impact up to 30% of the world's population. That’s a pretty substantial amount of people affected on a daily basis. With that statistic in mind we decided to discuss products we know will not only help you manage allergy sensitivities, but help non-allergy prone allies peacefully transition between seasons and maintain a solid night’s sleep.
In one of our previous blog posts, which you can read here, we discussed the benefits of silver. To get you caught up, silver is very hygienic with antibacterial and disinfectant properties. Now since we can’t coat everything in actual silver, the bedding industry has managed to translate the benefits of silver into an ecological antimicrobial treatment that protects you from dust mites, mildew, and bacteria growth.
We acknowledge other individuals enjoy a more natural lifestyle and disapprove of purchasing any type of chemically treated bedding. At Lizanne’s, we fully stand by your decision and offer a complete line of natural fill products for that very reason! During this time of year as the northern hemisphere is warming up, we recommend directing your attention towards our Bamboo and Silk collections. They are the best all-season option that will excel in regards to being naturally hypoallergenic, temperature regulating, and moisture wicking.
Now some of you may be wondering, what’s the difference between antimicrobial and hypoallergenic? Good thing there is a simple answer for that!
> consists of natural fill materials, (bamboo, silk, wool, and down), which naturally reduce the number of allergens present, thus cutting down the likeliness of triggering an allergic episode
> it is also more gentle on the skin, unlike other synthetic fabrics
> consists of chemically treated synthetic materials that prevents the development of bacterial growth, since warm and moist environments are places they thrive in
> antimicrobial bedding can be washed at a high temperature to ensure any current allergens rid themselves leaving you with a fresh, allergen free sleep environment.

As usual it wouldn’t be a post without our Sleep Connoisseurs providing a recommendation from their personal collections. Below are links to products that together, give you a full bed set option.
Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about our non-allergic allies!
We know the inconsistency of mother nature can be harsh on our sleep patterns. One second we’re freezing wondering if winter has made one last appearance, the next we’re ripping off our duvets and sheets in hope of cooling down enough to stop the impromptu sweat spell in the middle of the night. Regardless of the situation, seasonal transitions can be difficult and usually our sleep reaps the consequences. Luckily, we have a solution for you!
