What are the best non toxic pillows to avoid chemicals and toxins? In the past, I have had a hard time finding a pillow that I like that is supportive yet natural and healthy. And I’m not the only one. I’m surprised at how many of you have messaged me looking for the pillows that I recommend because you can’t find a good one, too.
I’ve finally found some pillows that I love. So I knew it was the perfect time to share my best picks of non toxic pillows. These use one or more of these natural materials:
- Natural latex
You can see my three favorites in the video below.
I’ve listed many more best options for safe pillows below. And you can check out my guide to the best non toxic body pillows for additional recommendations.

Best Non Toxic Pillows Shopping Guide: Natural and Safe
I’ve got to say, our Savvy Rest pillow is among the best we’ve ever had. And we’ve gone through A LOT of pillows trying to find one that’s soft but supportive.
We tried the Organic Wool and Latex pillow that Savvy Rest gave us to review. And my husband absolutely LOVES it! And he rarely find a pillow that he loves. In fact, he’s known for switching them out every few months trying to find something better.
It has a good amount of fill in it, so you’ll have a pillow with a high loft. He actually needed to remove some fill so that it was a little thinner. So you’re definitely going to get your money’s worth with this one!

Naturepedic is also one of my all time favorites!
When I was first searching for natural pillows almost a decade ago (long before there were so many brands to choose from), a Naturepedic pillow was one of the only (and the best) options. I bought their Trio pillow and absolutely loved it!
In fact, I used it for so many years that I wore it out. When I went to replace my Trio pillow, I was surprised to find out that it had been discontinued, but the Organic 2-in-1 Latex Pillow was very much the same. Naturepedic sent me a couple to review, and I fell in love with them! It’s the one I sleep on every night.
This Naturepedic organic pillow is somehow magically soft and cushy, yet firm and supportive. You’ll feel like you’re sleeping on a cushion, yet you’ll never have that feeling of your head sinking inwards toward the bed because there’s no support. When I was out of town for a week, I suggested that my husband try it out. He said the same thing – how can something so soft still have support?
Naturepedic has several other safe organic pillows to choose from, including:
I bought a Happsy pillow to try out. This natural bedding company is a great, affordable option. They have one type of pillow, a latex core wrapped in organic cotton.
This is definitely a firmer pillow and it’s a bit thinner than shredded latex pillows. It’s also a bit smaller in size compared to standard pillow dimensions.
The Happsy pillow is not a great fit for me as a sometimes side-sleeper. But I do think it’s a GREAT pillow, especially if you only sleep on your back or don’t like a pillow that’s too thick.
The only truly non toxic memory foam pillow, Essentia offers a variety of molded natural memory foam pillows. I have reviewed an Essentia pillow that they gave me and an Essentia mattress.
I think they are both great options if you like the feel of memory foam. However, I feel that memory foam is too heavy and sleeps too hot. Also, the price of these natural memory foam pillows is pretty expensive. So it can be cost prohibitive for some.
