Benefits of Organic Buckwheat Pillows

In this post, we are going to talk about the benefits of organic buckwheat pillows. Because buckwheat pillows aren’t really considered “mainstream”, there’s a lot many don’t know about. But we’re here to change that. We’re aware of all the benefits of organic buckwheat pillows, and we want to share them with you! What do you say?

Cooling Effect of Organic

Buckwheat Pillows

 

One of the benefits of organic buckwheat pillows, is that they’re very breathable.

And you might wonder: “Is it so important that my pillows breathe?”

Yes it is.

Indeed, air gaps are important in order to release heat. And organic buckwheat pillows don’t trap heat – at all. They’re resistant to pressure, and thus allows air gaps to remain in the pillow. Unlike many synthetic pillows (like polyester, and polyester blends), organic buckwheat pillows don’t trap heat. 

While many companies offer gel layers in memory foam pillows, this technology isn’t that efficient for most people. Indeed, if you tend to be hot at night in bed, gel layered pillows might take slightly longer to warm up, but the cooling effect is very minimal. Ultimately, this is because memory foam isn’t breathable. Neither is the gel layer.

Only truly breathable materials will provide the cooling effect you need. And organic buckwheat pillows are one of the most breathable pillows you can get!

If you don’t like firm pillows, but still want to experiment with organic buckwheat pillows, you could try a combination. Organic wool and organic buckwheat pillows are slightly softer, less firm, and are still very breathable.

Organic buckwheat pillows do wonders for you if you’re a hot sleeper.

However, if you’ve never slept on an organic buckwheat pillow, it could take at least a week to get used to it. But we believe that is 100% worth it.

Support in Organic

So, organic buckwheat pillows are perfect for those who want to keep a good posture.

Indeed, a good posture is vital for long term wellbeing.

Thus one of the benefits of organic buckwheat pillows, is that they can also drastically improve your posture. And because they always adjust to the shape of your head and neck, and don’t flatten, getting a buckwheat pillow can change the way you sleep (and feel) forever. Not just at night, but during the day, too!

Keeping your body in the right position while you sleep, is extremely important.

If your body is poorly supported while you sleep, this could leave you with head, neck and back pains during the day. And these pains can persist weeks, months or years.

So sleeping with a pillow that keeps your body in the right position, is obviously one of your top priorities. If you already suffer from mild or accute neck and back pains, organic buckwheat pillows could potentially help you a lot. Indeed, while organic buckwheat pillows aren’t considered a medical device, medical practicionners often advise their patients to get them when they suffer from back pain.

Organic buckwheat pillows have also shown to help people who have persistant migraines, too.

Lifespan of Organic

Buckwheat Pillows

 

Organic Buckwheat is a resistant material that doesn’t bend or flatten over time. That’s another one of the benefits of organic buckwheat pillows.

Because it doesn’t flatten or fold, the organic hulls keep their shape for a very long time. When you buy an organic buckwheat pillow, you’ll have it feeling like new for a good 10 years!

Our organic buckwheat pillows come with an extra bag of organic buckwheat hulls.

This allows you to:

  • Adjust the hight of the pillow, and
  • replace the hulls with new ones whenever you feel like it.

If you ever find yourself missing organic buckwheat hulls for your pillows, you can always order brand new ones.

So, while you may find that organic buckwheat pillows may be pricier than other pillows, you won’t have to replace it on a regular basis. Unlike synthetic pillows, down and feather pillows, which often need to be replaced at least once per year, organic buckwheat pillows stay new for much longer!

 

Adjustability of Organic

Buckwheat Pillows

 

As mentioned above, our organic buckwheat pillows are 100% adjustable in height.

Indeed, with every buckwheat pillow, we include an extra bag of organic buckwheat hulls. Like this, you can adjust the height of the pillow by adding or removing the hulls from your pillow.

Why should your pillows be adjustable?

Most pillows come in standard sizes and fillings. However, we aren’t all a “one size fits all”.

Every person is different. And every person sleeps differently.

That’s why, all of our pillows are 100% adjustable.

And depending on your sleep position, you’ll need a different pillow height.

The height of you pillow, can be either low, medium, medium-high, or high.

If you love to sleep on your stomach, your go-to pillow, should be a low pillow.

If you sleep on your side or your back, your go-to pillow, should be a high to medium high pillow.

What’s more, the height you need for your pillow, also depends on the softness of your mattress.

While we’re not able to provide you with the information (only you know how soft your mattress is), we do provide you with all the information and the ingredients for the perfect pillow.

Eco-Friendly

 

It can be difficult to go green, but there are some simple things that we can do to curb our waste production.

And choosing organic bedding is one of them.

We hope you take eco-friendliness into account when choosing your bedding. Because, just like the fashion industry, the bedding industry is responsible for a lot of textile and material waste.

We’re passionate about providing extremely luxurious-feeling bedding to everyone. And we’re also passionate about making everyone’s bedding eco-friendly.

Because, it kinda matters. Don’t you think?

Synthetic fabrics and fibers are piling up in landfills, and polluting our oceans, killing sealife, wild life, and even contaminating our food, by cross-contaminations.

We hope to make even just a small difference, by encouraging you to choose organic bedding.

You’ve probably already heard of the concept of biodegradability.

A substance or object is biodegradable, if it is capable of being decomposed by bacteria or other living organisms, and thereby avoiding pollution.

Here are some bio-degradable materials, which don’t pollute the environment, even after you discard them.

  • Organic Buckwheat
  • Organic cotton (unbleached, not chemically processed)
  • Organic wool (unbleached, not chemically processed)
  • Organic Hemp and linen  (unbleached, not chemically processed)
  • Silk and Bamboo (depending on how they were processed)

Organic textiles with dyes and bleaches can be bio-degradable, but because they are chemically processed somehow, they can still technically pollute the soil in some cases.

So, organic buckwheat pillows have the amazing benefit of being completely environmentally friendly.

Another reason to consider organic buckwheat pillows!
