They are both describing the same process, but
roasting doesn’t sound so clinical; so
it makes a much better story line when you’re
attempting to turn a negative into a positive.

ARE BUCKWHEAT HULL PILLOWS USED FOR?
pillows are commonly prescribed for the relief
of neck pain, back pain, headaches, muscle tension,
snoring, TMJ syndrome, neck and back, sleeplessness,
and other conditions.
BUCKWHEAT HULL FILLING?
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 the stress on all areas
of support. Other filling materials which compress,
try to recover their original shape and this
puts stress on the muscles of the neck. Other
advantages of the buckwheat hull filling are
the "cool in the summer, warm in the winter"
insulating properties, the ability to adjust
the size to your individual needs by removing
or adding back filler so the pillow fits you
just right. The filling also lasts for many
years making the pillow the best value cervical
pillow on the market. Long after other pillows
have collapsed and worn out a buckwheat hull
pillow will still be fully functional. Original
Buckwheat Pillow® are also environmentally friendly - for each
pillow put to use it will save the manufacturing
of the synthetic filling for ten or more ordinary
LONG DO THE PILLOWS LAST?
DO THE HULLS WEAR OUT OR CRUMBLE?
Pillow® should last for about 10 - 15 years. The hulls
do not break down or wear out, but they do become
polished with use. As the natural texture of
the hulls become polished the pillows actually
work better than new because the hulls move
and conform to your contours easily. If you
ever do need additional hulls, they are available
for a nominal charge.
ARE BUCKWHEAT HULLS?
are the husks that protect the buckwheat kernel
from the various elements of nature. It is not
a wheat at all, but actually a fruit (fagopyrum
esculentum) related to rhubarb. The buckwheat
used in our pillows is organically grown in
the United States, using no fertilizers or pesticides.
We use an exclusive hull cleaning process that
uses triple cleaning method to remove any buckwheat
flour residue from the hulls.
HEARD ABOUT HEATING OR COOLING
BUCKWHEAT PILLOWS, IS THAT HELPFUL?
or freezing buckwheat pillows is certainly alright.
Cold therapy can sometimes be useful for the
reduction of swelling and can relieve pain.
pillows is possible but we do not recommend
it because it can reduce the moisture content
of the hulls and is potentially unsafe. We suggest
extreme caution if you ever plan on heating
any natural grain pillow.
ALLERGIC TO WHEAT AND GRAIN,
CAN I USE BUCKWHEAT HULL PILLOWS?
are not a grain like wheat, they are a fruit.
Hulls are Hypo-allergenic and very few people
are allergic to buckwheat hull pillows. In actual
usage it seems that about one in six thousand
people can not use the pillows because of their
allergies. This may be actually related to the
tiny amount buckwheat flour residue. According
to studies about 1 to 5% of the population may
be allergic to the proteins in buckwheat flour,
however our exclusive double-cleaning process
removes virtually all of the buckwheat flour
from the hulls. If you notice any allergic reaction
such as itchy throat, watery eyes, runny nose,
etc. discontinue use of the pillow. Please report
any reactions to us and return the pillow for
a refund. Buckwheat flour residue in uncleaned
hulls as used in some copies of our pillows
may have a higher risk of allergic reaction.
CHILDREN USE THE PILLOW?
infants under 4 months old must never use ANY
pillows or soft bedding materials such as comforters,
sheepskin bed warmers etc. due to increased
risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)
according to the CPSC (Consumer Products Safety
Commission). Although you can breathe straight
through buckwheat hull filled pillows, the Carbon
Dioxide concentration can increase causing risk
to infants. We also do not recommend young children
under about 11 years old use buckwheat hull
pillows, at least without careful adult instruction
on the proper use, making the hollow area for
the head and keeping the pillow close to the
I USE THESE PILLOWS ON A WATERBED?
pillows work great on waterbeds. They provide
a similar type of shaping to your body that
the waterbed does. The light airy hulls keep
your head from overheating from the heated waterbed.
THE PILLOWS EVER GET BUGS/MITES/FUNGUS?
The hulls are
what provide the natural protection to the buckwheat
kernel from natures invading organisms, and
since they are a fiber they are not nutritive.
It is unheard of for any of our pillows in regular
use to ever get any infestation. Any natural
pillows kept in storage for long periods of
time that are not in use may provide a habitat
for any number of organisms, therefore if you
are going to store a pillow for long periods
of time it is recommended to keep the pillow
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. This
is preferable to adding chemical agents to the
pillow. We believe that people should not be
exposed to chemicals when they are sleeping.
Most synthetic fiber, foam and feather pillows
have formaldehyde, UV inhibitors, anti-fungal
agents, stabilizers, plasticizer, etc. added.
There are no chemical additives used in the
growing of hulls for our pillows, and the only
cleaning agent used is air.
CAN I CLEAN THE PILLOWS?
cases can be machine washed and tumble dried.
Iron if desired. We do not recommend cleaning
the hulls. The inner liner will rarely need
cleaning, but when it does simply remove the
hulls from the zippered opening and wash the
liner in warm water and tumble dry. Replace
the hulls when the liner is completely dry.
DO I USE THE PILLOW?
The first few
nights you might take a little getting used
to the pillow because it feels different than
other pillows you may be used to. The pillow
will conform to your contours as you move around
during the night. The pillow is also good for
people who never use any pillows because most
pillows provide too much support lifting your
head too far off the bed, but the Original Buckwheat
Pillow® let your head rest close to the bed.
IS THE FABRIC MADE OF?
have a zippered inner liner made of cotton twill,
a soft and dense fabric of the highest quality.
DO THE ORIGINAL BUCKWHEAT PILLOWS®
HELP NECK PAIN, AND MUSCLE TENSION?
on an Original Buckwheat Pillow®,
all the muscles and tendons are relaxed and
in their preferred position of proper cervical
curve (normal cervical lordosis). The support
of buckwheat hulls support the entire head and
neck area uniformly. With fiberfill and foam
pillows (even those designed to be 'cervical'
pillows) there are always areas of the pillow
that are more compressed than other areas, which
forces your muscles to fight back against the
pressures. When you relax the shoulder and neck
muscles during sleep it lets the nerves relax
and heal from the daily irritation of head,
back and arm movements.
DO THE ORIGINAL BUCKWHEAT PILLOWS® HELP HEADACHES?
hull pillow, tends to lower blood pressure,
which is a major cause of stress related headaches.
DO THE ORIGINAL BUCKWHEAT PILLOWS® HELP SNORING?
Buckwheat Pillow® seems to work to reduce or eliminate snoring
in about half of users. The people who are not
helped may have more serious problems such as
sleep apnea and are strongly urged to see a
qualified health professional as soon as possible.
IS THE PILLOW HELPFUL FOR LOW BACK PAIN?
When your neck
is in normal cervical position, your spinal
cord is relaxed (shortened), thereby putting
less stress on the lower back nerve roots. This
is often a source of pain where there is any
type of disk problem. You can also achieve additional
relaxation of the spinal cord when you place
a pillow behind your knees. The pillow can also
help mid-back pain, but is much more sucessful
at with the upper and lower spine.
DO THE ORIGINAL BUCKWHEAT PILLOWS® HELP TMJ
(Temporal Mandibular Joint) PROBLEMS?
The more relaxed
the neck and shoulder muscles, the easier it
is for the smaller jaw and facial muscles to
DO THE ORIGINAL BUCKWHEAT PILLOWS® HELP SLEEPLESSNESS?
When you lie
on an Original Buckwheat Pillow® and let your muscles relax, you tend to fall
asleep faster. Many people say that they wake
up in the same position they fell asleep in
and apparently didn't moved all night. You may
even find that you wake up more refreshed and
alert. There is some speculation, however not
tested or confirmed, that resting your head
on natural buckwheat hull pillow will induce
more lucid dreaming while using the pillow.
