We bought the energie opus about 5 years ago, encouraged by the breath ability claims. It was and still is very comfortable (hence the two stars), however there is one big flaw. My husband still has excessive night sweats. We were discouraged to use any mattress protection to keep the breathability. Now, a few years later, our mattress is a stinky stained mess. We've removed and washed the covers multiple times, have regularly turned the mattress as advised, but the sweat has penetrated into the actual foam - which can't be washed. We've returned to our old mattress while all the covers were being washed and dried and immediately noticed that my husband's night sweats were a lot less intense on the conventional mattress.
We bought this bed 10 months ago and really REALLY wanted it to be perfect. After the first couple of months we weren't 100% sure, but I am SO happy that we kept it! I have serious back and joint problems and there was no quick fix to that, but after about 4 months I noticed on a trip away that I was experiencing pain... the same pain I had before my Energie Opus... it just took a week away to realize how much worse I feel without my new bed! Chronic pain can be confusing sometimes because it takes awhile for any improvements to become apparent. Moral of the story: My king size Energie Opus has been WONDERFUL! Not too soft. Not too hard. Fully supportive. My husband loves it. I love it. Whenever we have to sleep away from home we lie down and the first thing we say to each other is, "I miss our bed!" And we were never those people before! We will definitely buy our son a twin XL Energie Opus when he is ready for a "big boy" bed.
I LOVE this bed! My purchase was through the internet with a few phone calls with questions to the main office. I bought a queen size with the zebase. The delivery was great. They set everything up in a matter of minutes. I will admit, the first few nights I still woke up with shoulder aches (I'm a side sleeper) and thought I may have made a mistake with this purchase. I read on the site that it takes 1-4 weeks to get used to the bed. I'm now on day 8 and Oh My Goodness! I am in heaven on this bed! It is so comfortable! I sleep so well and don't wake up with any shoulder aches! The zebase is constructed very well too. I'm really glad I purchased it with the mattress. I used to sleep on a spring mattress and I always had feather bed toppers on them to soften them up. This Energie Opus by far surpasses a feather bed topper! I researched for over a year on which least toxic mattress to purchase and settled on this one and am very happy I did. I also have the comfort pillows and those are just as dreamy. They're hard to describe. Not hard and not soft, they're just right. They're very comfortable. I typically fold my pillows during the night but with the comfort pillows, I don't need to do that. They're a perfect compliment to the Energie Opus. FYI -- I'm 5'-10 and weigh 135 pounds so I don't sink in, I'm cradled by the bed. I would most definitely make another purchase with Essentia!
Five years ago I bought a tempurpedic cloud and I love it. It feels like heaven but I don't love the chemicals. I was so excited to find these bed. I wanted to get my son a bed that he will have for a long time. He is only 2 years old and we do co-sleep (he and I) and so I got him a queen but the bed is a little noisy. When I roll over, it does creak like a spring could creak which is weird because there is no springs in it (is there?). So I love my tempurpedic because it is quite and you can't feel anyone move next to you but with these essentia you do feel the person moving next to you and for our bed you hear it too but they are healthier. I would still buy this bed again for my son though. I think it is the best product out there that I have seen but there still are some quirks to be worked out.
After countless nights of numb arms, sore backs, and restless sleep, we decided that it was time to make a real investment in our sleep -- after all, (if you're lucky) you spend 1/4 to 1/3 of your life sleeping! If that isn't worth the money, then I don't know what is. We were also swayed by the 'clean lifestyle' marketing, as we would rather avoid all the toxic chemicals put into conventional mattresses. I don't regret spending the big bucks for a second. We purchased the Energie Opus, and I have never slept so well in my life. I bought it when I was 7 months pregnant, and it was a lifesaver. I couldn't get a minute's rest anywhere else. The body pillow was a bonus, and it made my pregnancy that much easier. It is a BEAST of a pillow though, weighing in at about 40 lbs, so keep that in mind. We had a few hiccups with the delivery, mind you. If you don't get the white glove delivery, UPS thinks it's ok to leave the mattress at the front door, which may be ok at a house, but not at a condo -- how is a pregnant lady going to take a 100+ lb mattress from the front entrance up to my unit?! Also, the wrapping was dirty and it was very difficult to open it without the mattress itself getting dirty. Customer service was apologetic, and offered a couple of pillows to make up for it. I appreciate the gesture, but would rather the issue be addressed so that it won't happen to anyone else in the future! Overall, we are VERY VERY happy with our mattress and pillows, and would recommend them to everyone we know who is struggling with their sleep.

We had an excellent experience selecting and purchasing our Essentia mattress in the Seattle store. The staff was fantastic - helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Mattress delivery to our home was simple and on time. While we still find the process of selecting a mattress a bit difficult, Essentia made it more simple and we would gladly buy from them again.
Purchased an Energie Opus mattress. It is so hard to sleep anywhere else now. We purchased another memory foam mattress for the cottage. We didn't want to spend as much so didn't get Essentia. How different could they be? Very different it seems. There is no comparison. Essentia is worth every penny.
I purchased the Essentia Energie Opus mattress a couple of months ago, and it is by far, the most comfortable mattress l have ever owned. It is amazing, that a mattress so comfortable could also provide such great support. The spine is evenly aligned and supported, without the pressure points of metal coil mattresses. My hip and shoulder soreness have vanished. This mattress costs more than regular mattresses, but the savings will be seen in the long run, as there's a twenty year warranty. I think it's actually a great deal, for what you get - a high quality mattress, allowing you a sound sleep for the next two decades. What could be more important to good health and quality of life, than a good night's sleep? Every time I sink into my cushy, comfy bed, l know l made the right choice by choosing Essentia! Many thanks!
Never slept better in my life. My favorite pillows, soft form fitting and hold their shape!
Finally i got a great night sleep, including for the dog. Thank you Essentia!
My goodness, I feel so lucky that I came upon Essentia while looking into another memory foam mattress. It is a big investment and I decided, after researching online, to go into the store by Herald Square. I was a bit intimidated at first because you have to buzz and go upstairs. But, I entered and Debrah offered me a cup of tea and advised me to spend at least 15 mins on each bed to get a more accurate feel. I stayed in the store for about 1.5 hours and changed my mind many times. I finally narrowed it down to the EO and it was delivered on Thanksgiving Day. I truly love this bed so much. And I tell everyone that's in the market for a memory foam that Essentia is the Only way to go. Thanks y'all!
We drove to Santa Monica to "The Clean Bedroom" and "Essentia" to try out chemical free mattresses. The staff and karma were much better at Essentia. We laid down on all the mattresses - except the Energie Opus becuase it was "the softest" and we didn't think we'd want that. We ordered the Dormeuse because it was next to softest and felt right in the store. We had it delivered without a hitch but after a week or two of sleeping on it felt it was too firm - called up Essentia, they traded it out for the Energie Opus and all slick as can be without any guff. We love Energie Opus. I personally think they run a little firm so recommend the softer - but just make sure you go in and try them all out. Great company and product. The mattress is very heavy (we got king) and finally figured out to move it around, keep the big plastic it comes with, fold the mattress in half and slide it on the plastic where you need to go - otherwise takes a few people to move it.
The Energy Opus is truly one of the best mattresses I have ever had. It's comfortable and keeps its shape. I love the fact that it is all natural materials. Only minus: it's hard to get out of bed when it's so comfortable!
I've had my Energie Opus bed for a little over a month now. I purchased the bed online without even trying it first as there are no store locations near me. I was torn between the Energie Opus and the Dormeuse based on customer reviews and research. Essentia's awesome customer service personnel helped me narrow down my choice to the Energie Opus based on our needs. I love this bed! It is so comfortable and my boyfriend does not sleep hot in it which was one of his concerns. Thanks Essentia!
Our Essentia mattress might not look as sophisticated as the commonly sold multi layered mattresses and boxsprings, but in my opinion it performs better. There is absolutely no transfer of movement and our bodies immediately sink into a comfortable position. This allows both my partner and I to have a more refreshing sleep.
Purchased the Energie Opus July 2011. Customer service was excellent. A few days after we purchased the mattress, a promotion came up over the 4th of July. The company honored the new promotion and sent us 2 free pillows. I called a few times to ask questions and always received good answers and excellent service. The mattress itself is as comfortable as the tempur-pedic that we tried. We haven't noticed any off gassing or any other untoward odor. Would certainly recommend to others.
We have slept on a "generic" memory foam mattress for 10 years and didn't think our "sleeps" could get any better - but they have. We love our energie opus essentia! And I especially love that I'm not sleeping with toxics anymore - it's just my husband in bed with me! We received it days before a trip to Palm Springs and it was hard to leave it....but so nice to return to.
Many thanks for the prompt delivery of my new mattress. It is an absolute delight to sleep in my new bed without the usual aches and pains! Best money I have ever spent!! Also, the new pillow that was included... best thing since sliced bread. Many thanks again.
Bought an Energie and a pillow 3 years ago. Here's my problem, i find it difficult to sleep on cruise ships, hotels, at the cottage. Once you sleep on a Essentia, every other bed is torture. Best purchase i have every made!
I purchased an Energie Opus, Ergonomic, and Classic pillow for my girlfriend and me roughly 8 months ago. I have not had one night struggling to fall asleep since. I go to sleep in 15 minutes on average compared to when using traditional spring mattresses my entire life it varied where some nights I would literally spend an hour or 2 in bed trying to find sleep. Also, the dust mite resistance has really helped my allergies. I have less and less sinus congestion days ever since I began sleeping with the mattress. Kudos to Essentia for developing such a wonderful product!
I purchased the Energie Opus mattress and Forma Spa pillows. The mattress feels like you are sleeping on a cloud. It is sooooo comfortable. I am sleeping better than I ever have as an adult. The pillows give great support for your head and neck, but they still allow you to sleep on your side, as well as your back. Great products. And, I don't have to worry about being ""chemicalled to death""!
I really shopped around for mattresses. Very concerned about "eco-friendly" because of what I would be breathing in from my mattress. Also wanted comfort. Essentia delivers on both. I am really loving the mattress-- It is wonderful. And I had a great experience here in NYC. Robert, the sales rep was absolutely helpful. No pressure. Gave me lots of support even helped me to do the research I wanted to do about the "health aspects" of memory foam. The natural quality of Essentia was just what I was looking for.

We purchased the Energie Opus over a year ago. It is very nice, but it was a little too hard for my wife and I. We are both very thin and did not sink into the mattress enough. We then ordered a 2 inch natural memory foam pillowtop from Essentia, for a total of 5 inches of memory foam above the 5 inches of latex on the Energie Opus. Now it works perfect. By the way, we tried all the mattresses in their store and the Energie Opus was the softest--even more so than the Dormeuse.

This mattress is worth every penny. Not only is it healthy, but it is beyond comfortable. It is one of the best investments we have made, not only for our comfort, but for our life. This bed is part of an all encompassing life change, a commitment to healthy living from morning to night. We have never slept better. It was a risk to purchase it solely on reviews as we were not able to actually try it out at a local store... but this one is a risk worth taking. It is not too firm but still supportive. You comfortably sink in to softness but are not squashed. It is comfortable for any kind of sleeping (sides, on belly, on back). Also, a bonus to the purchase was dealing with the company-- Essentia is well-managed, organized, polite, and timely. Refreshing. Thank you!

I'm crazy in love with my Energie Opus mattress from Essentia, so I'm obviously sleeping with it. The plush comfort makes me swoon. The botanical latex, free of cancer-causing toxins, helps me sleep better at night. And I love knowing that I invested in something that will last about 25 years and biodegrades at the end of its life, thereby adding one fewer consumer disposable to our landfills. Energie Opus, je t'aime. (I speak to my lover in French).
I have had my Energie Opus now for a week. I am in love!!! I have never slept so well. We actually look forward to going to bed. It is the most amazing mattress!!! Thanks for the Zs!!!!!
My partner and I ordered an Energie Opus from you last summer. Essentia's customer service was fabulous. You helped us select a mattress that would best fit our needs; you were very responsive to all of our questions; and you shipped our mattress on time. The mattress has been fabulous from day one. I cannot imagine a more comfortable, supportive sleep, and it makes a huge difference to know that the mattress is not off-gassing anything that I don't want to be breathing. Essentia mattresses are the only way to sleep! Thanks again.
We're very happy with our new mattress. It's extremely comfortable, though memory foam does take a little getting used to after sleeping on a hard, rutted futon for the last eight years. We're looking forward to 25+ years of service from this amazing mattress. And we sleep better knowing there are no cancer-causing chemicals in bed with us! and also no chance for bed bugs, which the newspaper says are making a comeback in North America. Thanks again for a great buying experience and a terrific mattress. I hope it is a small step toward shifting the mattress industry to greater sustainability.
This mattress is the real thing, since me and my husband are sleeping on it we have no more back pain or numbness. In the morning it is so comfortable its amazing, it is worth the price. I would recommend this to anybody. We sleep like babies.
I am very happy with my mattress and felt the difference from the first night. I have a chronic back problem and mattresses which are hard and do not "give", as well as mattresses that have uneven surfaces cause me pain in my back, hip and legs. Since sleeping on my Energie Opus, every night has been pain free. It cost more than any of the other mattress that we checked out but it has been worth the financial sacrifice. Other memory foam mattresses were also comfortable and cost quite a bit less but the fact that this one does not contain chemicals made it worth paying the extra money. I highly recommend this mattress.
I cannot believe the comfort of this mattress!! I bought it for my toddler's first bed, and since she is a bad sleeper, I spent a fair amount of time on it too:) I get up without any aches or pains. While I sleep on it I feel like I am lying on air, no pressure points anywhere that make you toss and turn. Just love it and am coming back for one for our bed!
