Benefits of Organic Buckwheat Hull Pillows


Buckwheat hull pillows have been used for centuries in Japan and many Asian countries. Buckwheat is a fruit (fagopyrum esculentum), not a grain wheat. The hulls of the buckwheat are the husks that protect the buckwheat seed from the elements of Mother Nature. There is a very intricate process that goes into the de-hulling process. The buckwheat has three sides. Removing the seed from the shell should end up in two pieces. One piece should be one sided, and the other side of the seed should be two sided.

The two sided shell are called fluffy one, which adds for the best cushioning. We use the two sided shell with our organic buckwheat pillows, so our customer’s get quality and comfortable buckwheat hull pillows. All of our organic buckwheat hull pillows are 100% natural buckwheat hulls.

The lifespan of an organic buckwheat hull pillow can last most people around ten years and longer. The lifespan depends on how you use and care for your pillow, but for regular use the hull pillow can last up to ten years and longer. Over time, the buckwheat hulls will start to settle. This will mean that the pillow is less compact, but it will still offer the same support. Many of our customers can refill their pillow as needed. The lifespan is much longer than the traditional pillow.

Are the Pillows Washable?

The organic buckwheat hull pillows cannot be put into the washing machine. Soaking buckwheat hulls with water will ruin them, and this is why the pillows cannot be put directly into the washing machine. The cotton pillow cover is safe to be washed in the washing machine, and then the buckwheat hulls can be set in the sun to dry.

What Happens if the Buckwheat Hulls get soaked?

Accidents happen, and if your buckwheat hulls get soaked, then you need to replace the soaked hulls with new ones. For example, if your daughter spills her orange juice on your pillow, and half of the hulls are soaked, then immediately remove the wet hulls. There is no safe way to remove any liquids that have soaked the hulls. Trying to wash the hulls can lead to mold growth on the hulls. If your hulls are damp due to a dab of water or just a humid environment, then you can dry the hulls out in the sun safely.
It’s a great idea for organic buckwheat hulls pillow owners to place their pillows in the sun once or twice a year. The warmth of the sun will refresh your hulls.

The correct pillow should support the curve of your neck along with support your head without any collapsing or compressing of a pillow. The buckwheat hulls pillows can provide this, and much more.

Back Sleepers:

When back sleepers are laying on their back, their pillows are not properly supporting the space beneath the neck, which causes muscle strains. The organic buckwheat hull pillows can fill that space allowing your neck and back muscles to be relaxed, and reduce any muscle strains.

Side Sleepers:

Side sleeping is the most common sleeping position. Sleeping on the wrong pillow can lead to serious back and neck pain. Traditional pillows collapse under the weight of the head. When you sleep on your side, your pillow needs to be thick enough to keep the spine straight. Having too thick of a pillow will bend the neck out of alignment, so the pillow should conform to your neck. The buckwheat hulls pillow are perfect for side sleepers, because they offer adjustable thickness, and they supply the support that the neck needs. Some side sleepers fold their pillow in half if their pillow is too soft, but this doesn’t allow the spine to be straight, which can lead to back and neck pain. The spine must be straight, so the back and neck muscles can relax properly.

Stomach Sleepers:

Stomach sleepers should avoid sleeping on their stomach. Sleeping on your stomach will force your head, neck and spine to be in an unnatural position, and can result in pain, discomfort, and a very restless sleep. Stomach sleepers can get a good night’s sleep without pain and discomfort by having your buckwheat hulls pillow less filled than normal. This will distribute the hulls properly, so you are in a more natural position.

    I bought a long narrow buckwheat spine cushion at a large public holiday (crafts?) in San Francisco a couple of years ago. It was a good 30″ if not longer, muslin covering, then a removable zip cover over that of sturdy washable cotton. It was SO helpful to have one the full length of my spine that took it everywhere and eventually left it on an airplane, and was unable to retrieve it. Would you know where I might find one again?

    Good morning I have two pillows made by Natures Pillows,Inc. with natural buckwheat hulls ; I have tried sleeping on them for a week and no matter how I set it under my head, neck , back or legs I wake up with stiffness. I do not have the zipper lined pillow covers so I do I get them I would like to know if that could help for the comfort of the pillow for a restful sleep. I do hope that will work because a regular pillowcase does not.
