Have you been looking for a more bouncy alternative to memory foam? Do you want your next bed to be more organic?
PlushBeds believes they can offer the healthiest and most comfortable mattresses on the planet because of their dedication to sourcing only the highest-quality organic materials and they are constantly innovating to provide the best fit for individual sleep needs.
Our in-depth review of PlushBeds Botanical Bliss, which is part of the company’s natural latex line, will walk you through all the certifications and special features that make this product stand out, including support, responsiveness, cooling, and bounce.
This model is available in three different firmness levels: Soft, Medium, and Medium-Firm. You may also choose your preferred thickness: 9 inches, 10 inches, or 12 inches. This review is focused on the Medium 10-inch mattress, which should be the most versatile and accommodative.
Leave no stone unturned with our deep analysis or plunge ahead and get right to the score and summary.
You will love Botanical Bliss if you:
- Want bounce – These quick-responding latex layers have a lot of bounce both at the surface and base level that helps with repositioning, so you should not ever feel like you are stuck. Unlike some innerspring beds, this bounce remains localized and should not disturb your partner.
- Prefer an eco-friendly mattress – This product has received environmental certifications, such as OEKO-TEX® and GREENGUARD Gold, which means the materials have been rigorously tested for harmful levels of dangerous chemicals. The cotton, wool, and latex meet global third-party standards for organic materials.
- Sleep hot – Latex does a great job resisting body heat, and PlushBeds has aerated the layers in this model for even more airflow. They have also included a breathable cotton cover and layer of wool that wick away moisture.
You might not like Botanical Bliss if you:
- Are on a tight budget – This mattress was built with a lot of premium natural materials, including certified organic latex, cotton, and wool, and it costs substantially less than comparable beds in the retail space that have this amount of natural materials. PlushBeds’ latex line does include the Natural Bliss and the Eco Bliss if you are looking for a slightly lower price point.

Construction (Materials & Quality)
Botanical Bliss is a latex bed-in-a-box that is built to order and delivered to your door from the company’s factory in California. The King and California King sizes may arrive in two separate boxes due to weight restrictions and require some assemblage.
Because of the mattress’ weight, the company strongly recommends only stable, flat surfaces, like platforms or slatted frames, with no more than 2 inches between the slats. This bed’s elasticity is suitable for adjustable frames, and you can order sizes Queen and above split so that each side may adjust independently or be customized to different firmness levels.
The cover is made from GOTS certified organic cotton that is circular knit for an added elasticity and breathability that stretches with you and wicks away moisture. It is also fully-removable, which makes it easier to spot clean.
This review is for the 10-inch Medium mattress, but there are different comfort levels and thicknesses available that will change up the dimensions and specifications slightly.
- The first layer is a 1-inch thick layer of 100% New Zealand Wool that provides moisture wicking (it can absorb 30% of its weight in water without feeling wet) and breathable temperature regulation while being naturally resistant to dust mites and mildew. Wool is also an all-natural flame retardant.
- The second layer is a 3-inch 100% Natural Talalay Latex Comfort Layer that is an aerated latex that was processed to have a lighter consistency, which works well for contouring and pressure relief. Its immediate response time and bounce ease repositioning, and the material is naturally resistant to mold, mildew, and dust mites.
- The third layer is a 6-inch ARPICO Organic Latex Core that is also aerated but poured using the Dunlop process, which produces a denser foam that is elastic enough to relieve pressure while still providing solid and more durable support. ARPICO is one of the world’s leading providers of all-natural latex, known to produce quality product straight from rubber trees and free harmful additives, such as carcinogens, dyes, and pesticides.
Firmness (Support & Feel)
On our firmness scale that scores mattresses between 1 and 10, with 10 being the firmest, the 10-inch Medium Botanical Bliss scored right in the center at a 5. A mid-range firmness tends to be the most popular because of its versatility and ability to accommodate different sleep styles. If you prefer something softer or firmer, this model is available in two other comfort levels: Soft and Medium-Firm.
The cotton knit cover is soft to the touch and just pressing on mattress’ surface, you immediately feel the Talalay’s springiness beneath the wool layer. Climbing into the bed, you will notice how plush and quick-responding the comfort layer is and how it conforms to your curves without hugging you tight like traditional memory materials can.
With latex, softness often correlates with sinkage, and latex layers that are softer will cradle you deeper than latex layers that are more firm. With the Medium firmness of this model, you can expect a gently cradled feeling that will relieve your pressure points but should not make you feel stuck.
Because you sleep closer to the surface, more of your body is exposed to the air, which helps keep you cool while sleeping on the bed. The naturally breathable foams have also been aerated and topped with breathable cotton and wool to wick away moisture and promote temperature-regulating airflow.
Moving around on the surface should not be difficult because of latex’s natural bounce and the denser support layer. Combination sleepers, who like to alternate between sleep positions, will enjoy the versatility of the Medium.
Back sleepers will feel the comfort layer conform to and support their lumbar region while the supportive base layer works on holding their spine straight. Why is that important for them? Find out more about sleeping on back here.
Most side sleepers, who commonly develop the most pressure points because they sleep with their weight concentrated on a smaller surface area, will enjoy how the comfort layer conforms to their curves and relieves pressure (find out how the mattress type affect side sleepers here).
Stomach sleepers need a bed with good support to keep their hips from sinking too low and holding their spine at an awkward angle. Most should be comfortably supported by the Medium, but those needing extra support, especially those with heavier midsections, may find the Medium-Firm is a better fit (or you can browse through our top belly sleeper picks here).
Everyone’s body is unique and experiences firmness differently. If, after you have received your new mattress, you feel like you have chosen the wrong comfort level, the company will work with you for 100-days to swap out layers until you find the perfect fit.
In general, foam beds perform better in this category than innerspring mattresses, and memory beds typically score the highest. Though not as adept as traditional memory foam, the all-latex Botanical Bliss does an excellent job isolating motion. Light sleepers who share their sleep space with a partner who changes positions a lot should sleep undisturbed in this bed.
Bed-in-a-box brands do not typically excel in this category, but the Botanical Bliss performs slightly better than industry expectations for all-foam mattresses. When you sit on the edge with all your weight in one spot, you can expect to compress through the comfort layer to the support foam beneath. Lying on the side, you should not experience any difference in support compared to lying in the middle.
- Multiple Firmness and Thickness Options – The Botanical Bliss model is available in Soft, Medium, or Medium-Firm comfort levels that are each available in three different thicknesses: 9-inch, 10-inch, and 12-inch.
- Customizable Firmness – Sizes Queen and above are available split, and you may specify different firmness levels on either side by placing a custom order over the phone.
- 100-Night Comfort Guarantee – The company offers a free consultation during the sleep trial to adjust firmness levels by swapping out layers.
- Trial Period – To ensure this mattress is the best possible fit, you may try it out for 100 nights or return it for a full refund.
- Warranty – The company offers a 25-year warranty on this product.
- Shipping – Free shipping through UPS is available within the contiguous U.S.
- Optional White Glove Delivery Service – When you place your order, you will be given a listing of independent contractors that can install your new bed on the day it arrives and carry your old mattress away for an additional fee.
- Eco-Friendly Certifications – The foams are CertiPUR-US® certified, which means they were evaluated for the safe levels of formaldehyde, ozone depleters, and heavy metals like lead. The textiles are OEKO-TEX® certified, meaning they are evaluated at all processing levels for acceptable levels of hazardous chemicals. The GREENGUARD Gold certification indicates that the product passed some of the world’s most strict emissions standards.
- Certified Natural Materials – The wool layer is 100% natural New Zealand Wool. The latex is naturally sourced and certified by the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS), which guarantees it is free of harmful substances and emissions and that the final product contains at least 95% raw organic material that can be traced to the plantation of its origin. The cotton cover was certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) which guarantees at least 70% of the fabric is organic.

When I’m not learning about sleep, you can find me hanging out with my wife and close friends.
I absolutely love entrepreneurship and learning how to improve yourself daily. We only get one life, and I want to make it the best one possible.
I hope that everyone that finds our site takes a new approach to sleep. The world needs to stop thinking about it as something “we just do,” but rather something that allows us “to do every day.”
