Favorite Purchase

My favorite item that I have purchased is a set of cooling eucalyptus sheets from Sijo. Throughout the sweltering summer in my tiny New York apartment these sheets not only regulated my body temperature, but also acted as a hypoallergenic barrier to keep seasonal allergies at bay.
