Why buckwheat husk filling?

The natural filling has many advantages over conventional fiberfill, foam, or feather fillings. The most important quality for the relief of pain is that the material conforms to the exact contours of the head and neck providing support. This means that you have the same amount of support in all areas minimizing stress on the body. Other filling materials which compress, try to recover their original shape and this puts stress on the muscles of the neck.
Most of us spend 6 to 8 hours a night sleeping, that’s an average of 2,500 hours a year! To be able to sleep in an anatomically correct position is extremely beneficial to our whole body.

With Pure Earth’s buckwheat husk pillows, many people have found lasting relief from sleeplessness, neck and back pain, headaches, snoring, muscle tension, TMJ syndrome, asthma and other discomforts. All this combined with the thermodynamic nature of the pillow keeping your head at a comfortable temperature, means substantially less tossing and turning. Many people report waking up in the same position they went to sleep in, more alert and with more energy.

Long after other pillows have collapsed and worn out a buckwheat husk pillow will still be fully functional. When it finally does wear out just unzip the casing and use the husk in the garden as compost! Now that’s eco-friendly!
