What you may need to know about buckwheat pillows

Some people have actually call the buckwheat pillow a ‘miracle pillow’. Buckwheat hulls are actually the husks that protect the buckwheat kernel while it’s growing. The hulls are very carefully cleaned so no buckwheat flour or residue remains on the husks.

Some benefits of these buckwheat pillows: They’ll conform to a person’s head and neck exactly-unlike other types of pillows that try to retain their own shape.

They can be put into freezer for cold therapy if needed.

NEVER put them in a microwave though- it’s not safe. One person doing this started a fire.

They are naturally allergy-free pillows because they are actually fruit husks, not fiber like most people would think. They don’t outgas any fumes like foam or latex pillows might. They don’t attract dust mites, mold or other little critters.

Buckwheat hull pillows last from 10-15 years, need little cleaning, and actually get smoother and better as time goes because the hulls are polishing themselves as the pillow is used.
