Benefits of Buckweat Hull Cushions

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.

Advantages of Organic Buckwheat Hulls Pillows

There are many advantages of organic buckwheat hulls pillows, which include:
• 100% natural and organic
• Has a ‘cooling effect’
• Can last up to 5 years.
• Made in Europe.
• Doesn’t collapse under the weight of your head

Breathability of Organic Buckwheat Hull Pillows

Organic buckwheat hull pillows are resistant to pressure. This resistance allows air gaps to remain in the buckwheat hull pillow, which provides breathability and coolness to your pet's body. The buckwheat hull pillows do not trap heat. 

Buckwheat Hull Pillows Support

The buckwheat hull pillow gives support across the entire body. The natural hull filling will mold to fit the body shape. The buckwheat hulls gently mold around the body shape and current body sleeping position, then the buckwheat hulls lock into place, to provide the perfect support in any position.

Temperature Control

Our organic buckwheat hull pillows are 100% natural. The hulls do not conduct heat, but maintain a cool, comfortable temperature while you sleep. The hulls in the pillows allow air to circulate, which promotes added comfort. The hulls come in a three dimensional shape, so the hulls can’t stick together. Pillows can be cooled in the refrigerator and freezer to add an extra cooling effect and comfort for sleeping.

Is There a Smell With the Organic Buckwheat Hull Cushion Filling?

There is no smell with our organic buckwheat hull cushion. We thoroughly clean our buckwheat, so there is no smell. If you do open up the pillow, then the only scent that you may smell is a very faint earthy smell.

What is the Lifespan?

The lifespan of an organic buckwheat hull cushion can last around 5 years. The lifespan depends on how you use and care for your pillow, 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. Please refill your cushion as needed. 

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 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 to be placed in the sun once or twice a year. The warmth of the sun will refresh your hulls.
