So what, exactly, is that earthy scent in my mattress?

A customer writes: "My new green cotton and wool mattress has a scent, not unpleasant, but I just wonder what it is. Can you identify it? Will it go away? Thanks (it's a beautiful bed!)."

Dear @Merlin Saami,
What you're experiencing are the great scents and feel of sleeping as mother nature intended.
White Lotus Home uses the most natural and organic fibers on Earth, so when you go to sleep on our cotton and wool mattresses, you'll smell what it's like to be in the middle of a cotton field. And yes, the scent, just like the smell of flowers, will  dissipate over.
Thanks for the compliment and for supporting US jobs, and for helping save the Earth while you sleep and for creating a healthier sleeping environment for you and your family :)
