What the Best Sleep of your Life? You Need to Sleep Grounded!

Sleeping grounded is the easiest way to absorb the Earth’s natural energy for several hours at a time. And the more time you can spend grounded, the better!

People often report sleeping better when grounded, as well as feeling healthier and more energetic after doing so. We can say the same, having religiously used various incarnations of grounding sleep products of RealyouEarthing. From grounded sheets and body bands, to pillowcase and mattress mat - we’ve slept on them all, and have seen these innovative products evolve into the current earthing sleep collection we’ll show you below. This patent-protected collection is the culmination of two decades of research and development, and what you see now is the result of many years of fine-tuning.


Step 1:

Ground your bed with a connected mattress cover, sleep mat and/or pillow covers.

The mats and covers are what will be connected to the Earth via a grounding rod or the ground port of an electrical outlet.

Step 2:

Facilitate conductivity with semi-conductive sheets and pillowcases made with Solid Silver Strands.

This second step is optional and requires the use of a grounding mat or cover per step 

If you’re new to sleeping grounded, start with one or more of these. If you’re not ready to invest in a grounded sleep system yet, we recommend testing the waters by sleeping on a Universal Earthing Mat - you’ll know in a few weeks if a mat that provides more head-to-toe coverage is right for you.

Earthing mattress covers, sleep mats and pillow covers are made from non-toxic polyeurethane (PU) infused with carbon, which conducts Earth’s electrons. These latest covers and mats are lighter and thinner than prior versions for improved durability and comfort. They are vinyl-free and phthalate-free. Now without perforations, they are also easier to clean.

Designed to envelop your regular pillows, Earthing Elite® Pillow Covers are made from the same proprietary grounding material as the sleep mat and grounding covers and connect into a ground port the same way. You can order a kit with one or two pillow covers, and customize your kit for standard pillows or king-size pillows.

While direct skin contact with each of these conductive sleep systems is ideal, not all people want to sleep without sheets or in the nude. Hence, Earthing has designed its conductive sleep mats and covers to be conductive with a fitted sheet or pillowcase over them, but recommends having no more than one layer of fabric between your skin and each sleep system. You don’t want to be in PJs head to toe - try to sleep with minimal clothing on when on a sleep cover or mat. If you use regular sheets and pillowcases, be sure to choose ones made of cotton, bamboo or other natural fabric. Alternately, you can use Earthing’s special silver-infused sheets and pillowcases over your sleep covers or mat - more on these below.


Earthing® Sleep Mats and Pillow Covers utilize a proprietary conductive grounding material, which is 100% conductive and plugs into the ground port (the lower third hole) of a three-pronged outlet (see pictures above). If your outlet does not contain a third hole ground port, you can either use an adaptor or a grounding rod (more on those below).

To connect with the Earth’s natural energy, you snap the coil cord onto the grounding mat or pillow cover, then plug the other end of the cord into the ground port of an electrical outlet. Plugging into this ground port does NOT connect your grounding sleep product with the electricity that powers your lights and appliances; rather it puts the product in contact with the ground wire that connects to other outlets in your house (grounding ports were developed in the 1960s as a safety feature to minimize risk of electric shock). This will essentially connect your sleep mat or pillow cover to the Earth’s natural energy so you can sleep grounded and reap the benefits of doing so.

Outlet Checker for U.S. ground ports.

You can test whether your grounding port is conductive. If the two yellow lights are lit, you are good to go - your grounding sleep system will connect you to the Earth’s energy once you’re plugged in.

If the two yellow lights don’t come on, you’ll need to test and connect through another outlet with a conductive ground port. If you do not have grounded outlets or prefer not to use the outlet, a simple Earthing Ground Rod System can be used.



  • Regularly wipe down your sleep mat or pillow cover with a damp cloth, especially if you sleep on it without sheets and sweat while sleeping.

  • On occasion, deeper clean with a damp cloth using a small amount of mild household soap. Use another clean damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue (which can build up and block conductivity).

  • Let the sleep mat or pillow cover completely air dry after wiping it down.


  • Don’t wash your sleep mat or pillow cover in the washing machine; don’t use the dryer either!

  • Don’t use cleaning agents containing bleach, disinfectants, oils, or whitening agents. Doing so can ruin the conductivity of your Earthing® product.


Now for Step 2…For optimal conductivity in the comfort of sheets, Earthing offers 200 thread count cotton sheet sets and pillowcases that are woven with AGFlex Solid Silver Strands. While these sheets and pillowcases will not keep you grounded on their own, the silver in them will help conduct Earth’s electrons from your mattress cover or sleep mat to your body. In other words, this silver-powered bedding enhances your grounding experience so it’s like you’re sleeping directly on the conductive polyeurothane-carbon surface - but with a cotton sheet barrier. Best of both worlds…

Pillow kits come in packs of one pillowcase or two, and the covers fit either standard or king-size pillows (you choose which).



  • Wash separately in a washing machine

  • Use liquid laundry detergent

  • Wash on a delicate cycle with warm water

  • Dry in a dryer on low or line dry


  • Don’t wash with bleach or fabric softeners

  • Don’t use whitening detergents, oxi-detergents OR detergents with oils like lavender or coconut oil

  • Don’t use dryer sheet fabric softeners

  • Don't apply lotions or body oils before bed

Bleach, body lotions and oils can tarnish the silver thread rendering it non conductive. Fabric softener builds up on the silver and also ruins its conductive properties. It is advised to wait one hour to use the product after applying lotion to the skin. Iron using low heat.
