DIY: Make your own buckwheat hull pillows by ApartmentTherapy.com Buckwheat Hull pillows can support both neck and back while having better air circulation than conventional fillers. This means cooler comfort in warm weather.
DIY Buckwheat Relaxation Pillows.A piece of fabric big enough to make the size pillow you want- I used organic cotton muslin Organic Buckwheat Hulls to fill the pillow (about 5 pounds fills a normal size pillow without being too thick) Optional 1/2 cup lavender flowers Optional 1/2 cup yarrow flowers optional 1/2 cup chamomile flowers
I recently switched to a buckwheat pillow as per my acupuncturist's advice, and I have to say I was very surprised how much better I sleep. A car accident left me with chronic neck pain and insomnia, and I was beginning to think I would never be comfortable again. Crazy how such a small change can make such a large improvement :))
