Eucalyptus sheet

Is there anything worse than tossing and turning all night because you’re not able to sleep comfortably in your sheets? If you’re having difficulties sleeping because you’re a hot sleeper, I am with you! As someone who once spent most nights flipping my pillows to the cooler side, believe me, I’ve been there. Luckily, I’ve found a set of ultra-soft sheets that are super breathable and 100% TENCEL lyocell derived from eucalyptus wood. These cooling sheets have been a life saver to my sleep and for preventing night sweats.

When it came to sleeping, I often felt like the temperature conditions in bed made it difficult for me to sleep comfortably – it was always too hot or too cold. My sleeping issues became significantly worse after I went through menopause. I could not get comfortable and would roll around in my sheets at night, wavering between too hot and too cold. I would often wake up drenched in sweat with my sheets sticking to my skin, feeling alone in my pain.

But I wasn’t alone! A study released by the National Sleep Foundation found that “post-menopausal women are less satisfied with their sleep and as many as 61% report insomnia symptoms.” If that doesn’t describe my experiences in a nutshell, I don’t know what does. Sleep is so important in its restorative properties to your body and health; not being able to sleep well was especially frustrating. At my wits end, I began looking for an alternative to cotton that would keep me cool and satisfied in bed all night.

My search was long, but I finally discovered Eucalypso’s 100% TENCEL lyocell sheets, and they have been life-changing. They’re naturally temperature regulating, so they won’t make you too hot at night. They’re cooling to the touch and very breathable, so they keep me comfortable all night. I used to constantly wake up in the middle of the night from sweating, but ever since I got these Eucalypso sheets, I haven’t had that issue at all. It was such a relief when I was able to sleep the whole night without being woken up by my body heat.

Eucalypso’s sheets have been tested to enhance the quality of sleep: they’re 2x softer and 3x more breathable than cotton sheets. I’ve discovered that cotton sheets trap sweat and bacteria, making it hard for your skin to breathe while you sleep. This makes you hot and leads to hot flashes and night sweats. On the other hand, TENCEL sheets are cooling and breathable, making them the perfect sheets for hot sleepers. In fact, they wick moisture from the body 70% better than cotton sheets!

The benefits of Eucalypso’s sheets are endless. These Tencel sheets are also silky soft, hypoallergenic, and perfectly gentle on sensitive skin. The quality of the fibers minimizes the breeding of bacteria, helping prevent breakouts on the skin. They’re so wonderful on the skin, it feels like you’re sleeping on silk.

As if that’s not dreamy enough, Eucalypso bedding is also super sustainable and kind to the earth. Their products are made in a closed loop process where 99% of the water, solvents, and fibers that go into the making of the product are reused and recycled. Unlike most other fabrics, like cotton, bamboo, and synthetic polyester, that use harmful chemicals that pollute the earth, this TENCEL bedding only uses 1 organic solvent that is great for the environment.

I can’t speak highly enough of how incredible these silky soft sheets are; they’ve totally transformed my sleep. I love how luxuriously soft they are, and how comfortable and cool they keep me. My husband loves them as well, since they also cure his night sweats. Eucalypso’s sheet sets come in sets of 4 (flat sheet, fitted sheet, and 2 pillowcases) and they’re super easy to take care of. There’s no better gift than the gift of good sleep, so what are you waiting for?
