Organic Buckwheat Hull Pillow - Japanese Makura and Sobakawa Pillows
Buckwheat pillows provide exceptional comfort without worries of allergens. Buckwheat is a fruit related to rhubarb plants. It is not a grain. Insect pests do not like buckwheat, so you don't need to worry about things like dust mites. In addition, buckwheat pillows last years.
If the hulls do wear down due to friction, you simply unzip the outer cover and buckwheat hull pouch and add new buckwheat hulls.
Avoid Waking in the Middle of the Night
Polyester fiberfill bed pillows often trap heat against your head and face while you sleep. The hot pillow leads you to feel overheated and you'll wake up uncomfortable. Falling back to sleep is difficult.
With an organic buckwheat hull pillow, air between the hulls flows readily keeping your pillow and head cool throughout the night. You'll sleep better and wake up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day. Menopausal women who suffer from night sweats and hot flashes will find the pillows to be extremely useful.
Benefits to an Organic Buckwheat Hull Pillow
Buckwheat bed pillows support your head and neck preventing pain. Because the bed pillow provides exceptional support, you'll find that it holds your head in position to prevent snoring and even sleep apnea.
If you suffer from migraines or headaches due to allergies to down, foam or polyester fiberfill pillows, buckwheat pillows are a perfect solution. Buckwheat has little scent and is always hypoallergenic.
Add Lavender Blossoms to Your Buckwheat Pillows for Stress Relief
Those who find it difficult to fall to sleep, adding dried lavender blossoms to your pillow may help. The soothing aroma helps relieve stress and tension making for a great aromatherapy bedroom pillow.
Caring for Your Buckwheat Pillow
You should not put an organic buckwheat hull pillow in the washing machine. Once wet, buckwheat hulls are extremely difficult to dry properly. You risk the growth of mildew.
Purchase a buckwheat bed pillow that comes in a machine washable cover. Purchasing a second cover is helpful if you tend not to wash and dry your laundry all the the same day.
Do not put your buckwheat pillow in the microwave. Heating the buckwheat hulls increases the risk of fire. You may not know the hulls are burning until it is too late.Copyright 2004-2013 S&T US LLC
