Sleep Better Experience the calming effects of Baloo's weighted blankets Weighted blankets are incredibly popular right now, especially since studies published in journals, like the Occupational Therapy in Mental Health and The Journal of Complementary Medicine, indicate that the gentle, even weight they apply to the body, simulates the effects of Deep Pressure Touch, which has been shown to encourage the body's neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, which work together to stimulate melatonin. It basically feels like a gentle hug. "When serotonin naturally converts to melatonin, your body takes the cue to rest. This means a calmer mind and deeper sleep for a healthier life," says Baloo's website. Baloo's luxurious, eco-friendly weighted blankets boast fine glass microbeads and are made with the cleanest, highest-quality, all- natural, 100% cotton materials. Their cool cotton weighted blankets are available in three sizes: throw size/twin (12 pounds), full/queen (15 or 20 pounds), and king (25 pounds). Their double-quilted stitching keeps the weighted filling in place so that it will never bunch. They also tout duvet covers in a range of colors made from 100% stone washed French linen that becomes even softer with each wash. You can dry clean or wash your weighted blanket on the gentle cycle with cold water and dry on the delicate setting. Washing actually softens the texture of your blanket. Each purchase comes with a download of three relaxing Tibetan and crystal singing bowls tracks. And Baloo gives back. When you review your Baloo product on Amazon or tag them on social media @balooliving, Baloo donates $5 toward a new pair of pajamas and a new book for a child to read at bedtime.
