Features you should know about Silentnight Wellbeing Lavender Scented pillow
In this section we will talk about the most important features you should know about the Silentnight Wellbeing Lavender Scented pillow and this includes lavender scent, casing, filling, firmness, maintenance and warranty.
Lavender or more precisely lavender essential oil is one of the most used oils for aromatherapy due to its numerous benefits. We use calming lavender scent for anxiety, insomnia and depression which are main reasons why this pillow is lavender scent-infused. Lavender scent helps also with allergies, but you have to keep in mind that if you notice nausea, headache or skin irritation, you are probably allergic to lavender.
When you are surrounded by the scent of lavender before going to bed, you will feel relaxed and you will be able to fall asleep without any problems, and this will lead to a good night’s sleep. Lavender is found in the edges of this pillow and has it in the right dose, to relax you and give you tranquil sleep environment, but without being too strong a scent.
Sleep companies often opt for microfiber when they need to choose pillow casing material. Microfibre is soft and comfortable, and also very durable. You can wash it many times in the washing machine without damage. Also, due to the type of fiber, it does not retain germs, dust mites and the like. Microfibre is a hypoallergenic material, which is why it is a popular option, as it will be suitable for 99% of customers.
Another synthetic material is used for this pillow, and this time it is hollowfibre for filling. As its name suggests, these are the fibers between which there is a hollow space and this makes this material comfortable, and above all very breathable. Hollofibre is low maintenance and also dries very easily. It is very lightweight too. Overall, hollowfibre is a great choice for filling, that is further improved by its anti-allergy properties.
Silentnight Wellbeing Lavender Scented pillow is a medium firm pillow which on a firmness scale from 1 to 10 is certainly closer to soft than firm pillow. We could give it a 5.5 rating on the firmness scale. So it will give you comfort and you will surely be very happy with it. The support is good, especially when we consider that this is a softer pillow after all. That is why we do not recommend it to those for whom support is the most important and stomach sleepers.
This pillow does not have a removable cover but it will not make it difficult for you to maintain because it is fully machine washable. This is probably an even better option because you know it will be completely clean, not just the cover. They dry very quickly because microfibre and hollowfibre are such materials that dry very quickly. We have already mentioned that durability is good and that you can follow it often. One thing you need to know is that after each wash, the scent of lavender will be less and less noticeable but you can count on pillow feeling supremely fresh.
In the sleep industry, it is common for a pillow warranty to last a year or two. When you buy a Silentnight Wellbeing Lavender Scented pillow you get a 2 year manufacturer’s peace of mind guarantee which is great especially when we know this is a very affordable pillow. So you know that you will be able to use it for at least 2 years and you have spent very little money on it.
Review of Silentnight Wellbeing Lavender Scented pillow
Silentnight Wellbeing Lavender Scented pillow is a medium firm pillow whose main characteristics are comfort providing restful night’s sleep and the scent of lavender. Scent of lavender was added due to the natural characteristics of lavender. Lavender scent increases relaxation and that is why lavender is often used for aroma therapy. It is very soft to touch because it is encased in microfibre casing, and filled with hollowfibre. Due to hollowfibre the breathability is great and will suit hot sleepers.

How did we test the product?
It only takes a few minutes to order your Silentnight Wellbeing Lavender Scented pillow as it is available in only one size, you have nothing to choose from, you just need to enter your address and choose between free delivery and fastest delivery, which is charged extra.
We chose the free delivery option and it arrived within the usual 5 to 7 business days. When we opened it, we didn’t feel the usual chemical off-gassing but the smell of lavender which is really great. When you lie down on it you will have the feeling of lying in some garden full of lavender.
During the overnight test, we confirmed everything we already expected from this pillow. It is very comfortable, and the support is fine, but it is certainly not the main feature. Back and side sleepers will be satisfied, we expect side sleepers to like it most. Loft is too high and it is too soft for stomach sleepers. Breathability is satisfactory, which we also expected due to hollofibre filling.
At the end of our testing, we washed it, but not once, as usual, but 5 times to check if the scent of lavender would still be present. It has completely disappeared and that is disappointing.
