Natural Awakenings Central New Jersey


Sleep Deeply with Hibernate Bedding

A family business, Hibernate Bedding opened in 2012 and is owned and operated by Pamela Nardone, a lifelong resident of the Somerset Hills.

Pam recognizes that shopping for a mattress can be a difficult, annoying and for some an extremely painful experience, but not at Hibernate Bedding. “We try to make it fun for people to shop,” says Nardone, whose warm, friendly personality helps put customers at ease. “Many of my customers are now my friends and come visit me all the time.” 

Hibernate’s product selection is geared toward organic, natural, and chemical free mattresses such as Vispring Luxury Beds, Millbrook Luxury Beds, both from England, OMI Organic Mattresses, IVY Organics, Naturepedic, Savvy Rest, Harvest Green, and Paramount.

They also carry the more well known traditional mattress manufacturers including Stearns & Foster, Sealy Posturepedic, and Beautyrest along with organic crib mattresses and a nice selection of headboards, platform beds, adjustable comfort bases, sheets and toppers.

Having the right pillow is just as important as having the right mattress.  Hibernate has a huge selection of pillows including organic options filled with wool, cotton, and latex. Customizable down and down alternative pillows are available with monogramming and embroidery options, which make wonderful gifts.

Pam does her best to educate people on the benefits of sleeping on an organic or chemical free mattress.  Most conventional mattresses contain polyurethane foams, flame retardants, and glues that off gas VOC particles which can cause various symptoms from itchiness and sore throat to lethargy, sleepiness, sleeplessness and obvious signs of poisoning.  These particles are also known to be carcinogenic and exposure to them can be linked to a number of serious health conditions including cancer, developmental brain disorders, and obesity.  Nardone says, “Why take that risk?  We are exposed to enough chemicals in our daily lives.  Our bedrooms should be a healthy and safe place for all of us, especially our children.”

Most importantly, Pam and Mike want you to have fun and feel relaxed while in Hibernate Bedding, so be prepared to have a good laugh and an easy process in purchasing your new mattress.

Tick Talk

Spring officially sprung on March 21. We have turned our clocks ahead. We are looking forward to warm winds, sunny skies and the smell of fresh cut grass. The daffodils and tulips have recently bloomed and we are just starting with the yard work that comes with the warmer weather.  Sadly, another season has started ramping up.  Tick season.

•             The best form of protection is prevention. Educating oneself about tick activity and how our behaviors overlap with tick habitats is the first step.

•             According to the NJ DOH, in 2022 Hunterdon County led the state with a Lyme disease incidence rate of 426 cases per 100,000 people. The fact is ticks spend approximately 90% of their lives not on a host but aggressively searching for one, molting to their next stage or over-wintering. This is why a tick remediation program should be implemented on school grounds where NJ DOH deems high risk for tick exposure and subsequent attachment to human hosts.

•             Governor Murphy has signed a bill that mandates tick education in NJ public schools. See this for the details.  Tick education must now be incorporated into K-12 school curriculum. See link:

•             May is a great month to remind the public that tick activity is in full swing. In New Jersey, there are many tickborne diseases that affect residents, including Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Lyme disease, Powassan, and Spotted Fever Group Rickettsiosis.

•             For years, the focus has mainly been about protecting ourselves from Lyme disease. But other tick-borne diseases are on the rise in Central Jersey. An increase of incidence of Babesia and Anaplasma are sidelining people too. These two pathogens are scary because they effect our blood cells. Babesia affects the red blood cells and Anaplasma effects the white blood cells.

•             Ticks can be infected with more than one pathogen. When you contract Lyme it is possible to contract more than just that one disease. This is called a co-infection. It is super important to pay attention to your symptoms. See link.
