buckwheat pillows and heat bags

Buckwheat Pillows

Buckwheat Hulls have been used for many centuries in some Asian cultures.  It has only been introduced to North America in the past few decades as an alternative to the standard pillow fillers.  The buckwheat hull has many desirable qualities that make it an excellent choice as a comfortable, supportive and therapeutic pillow.  It contours and supports the head and neck in any sleeping position and maintains proper alignment of the neck and shoulders.

  • The seed from inside is removed and what's left is the outer shell which is what is used inside the pillow therefore it cannot be heated as it doesn't contain a the endosperm within the seed that holds moisture.
  • Because of their shape and smoothness, they shift and contour to the curves of your head, neck and shoulders filling in the spaces so your cervical spine is more aligned and relaxed.
  • It does not encourage dust mites - it's too hostile of an environment with the hulls shifting.  Another wonderful feature of the buckwheat pillow is that it regulates heat, making it both cooling or warming depending on one's preference.
  • Interestingly enough, buckwheat is not a part of the wheat family, it's from the rhubarb family of plant (polygonaceae).
  • The Standard and the Queen sizes are adjustable to add or remove hull according to your comfort needs.
