Nothing beats a good nights sleep and for that nothing is more important than to find a pillow that will support and pamper your neck in just the right way. For thousands of years buckwheat hull pillows have been recognized as an environmental friendly and orthopedically healthy sleep support. A buckwheat pillow not only prevents or eases neck, shoulder and back aches and pains while you sleep but also eliminates allergens from your pillow.Not all buckwheat pillows are the same: PREMIUM QUALITY HULLS: We use the highest quality full not flattened hulls, grown without the use of harsh chemical and pesticides. CLEAN: We run the hulls several times through the dust ventilator, thus separating almost all dust particles, buckwheat flower residue and all foreign matter. This dramatically reduces the chance of dust mites and other allergens. UNBLEACHED COTTON COVER: Every pillow is made of a natural cotton case, double seamed to counter the heavy weight of the hull filling and to prevent a wear-out. ZIPPERED: This gives you the ability to adjust the size to your individual needs by removing or adding back filler so the pillow fits you just right. NECK PILLOW: An unique design with built-in neck-roll provides better and consistent neck support than standard buckwheat pillows.Besides the orthopaedic reasons buckwheat pillows are recommended by chiropractors, massage therapists and physiotherapists to aid in: sleeplessness, allergies, reduce headaches, migraines, snoring, TMJ syndrome, cervical and lumbar subluxations, sleep apnea, etc.Includes a buckwheat hull pillow and quilted cotton casing. size: ... x ......... color: natural unbleached cotton - no dyes or chemical used or applied in finishing buckwheat hulls:5kgs, grown in IndiaSome advice on how to use your pillow: May take a little getting used to because the hulls rustle a bit inside the pillow as you move your head. In some cases this can take up to 2 weeks. Customise your pillow by removing (if needed) hulls to adjust to your own body size and comfort level. If the smell of the hulls disturb you, try spraying some of our aromatherapy mists; Nidra sound sleep mist. Cleaning: Pillow case is machine washable. Hulls are not washable. If hulls become soiled or wet they should be replaced. Set the buckwheat hulls once in awhile, in strong sunshine to freshen. Storing: Although dust-mite resistant, any natural filling kept in storage for long periods of time that is not in use may provide a habitat for any number of organisms.Therefore if you are going to store the pillow for long periods of time it is recommended to keep the hulls in a freezer at least for one day per month as a preventive measure, especially if you live in a hot and humid environment. Alternatively, you may use a vacuum pack sealing system.
