Iceland’s got some amazing landscape, and that’s mostly because of the volcanoes that reside on the island. Ash from the volcanoes contributes to the lush greenery, as well as the beautiful hot springs that Iceland is best known for.
While volcanic ash contributes to the land, it isn’t so healthy for human consumption. Volcanic ash is known to be harmful to human health, as it can cause breathing problems and damage eyes and skin. However, in clay form it has been traditionally used for treatment by many cultures since it possesses anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-yeast and disinfectant properties. It's great for the skin!
Eyri Iceland’s, Arctic Rest mattress contains a layer formed by volcanic ash in clay form. This layer ensures that the mattress stays in great condition and repels bacteria and mould, so you can rest easy knowing that your mattress is clean and not crawling with gross microscopic creatures. You're welcome.
