While trying to sleep, are you bothered by your head feeling too warm to the extent that it keeps you awake at night? Isn't it annoying when you wake up in the morning and your head is sweating? That’s because materials used in traditional pillows will retain the heat. Buckwheat hull filled pillows can solve that problem by naturally dissipating the warm air from around your head. Originated centuries ago, buckwheat hull pillows have been popular in China, Japan and other Asian countries. Only in recent times with the popularity of natural products has buckwheat pillows been introduced to North America.
The filling material inside of the Sammi Therapeutic Pillow is natural buckwheat hulls. Each individual hull has a 3D structure that allows the hulls to stack well and provide ample support for the sleeper’s neck. Moreover, because each hull is hollow, the material is lightweight and stimulates good air circulation. This is the “breathable” function of the buckwheat hulls working together to ventilate the air circulating around the sleeper’s head and neck to keep them cool throughout the night.
Traditional pillows filled with down pillow, memory foam, shredded urethane foam, and polyester fiberfill pillow are all materials with insulating properties. They retain heat generated by the head and neck, rather than dissipating it. Plus, they don’t give the neck enough support to maintain the natural curvature of the cervical spine.
Buckwheat hulls do more in pillows than providing a comfortable night’s sleep. According to reports, buckwheat hulls for the human body have a conspicuous effect. They can slowly move and play the role of massage to relieve neck fatigue. They also can stimulate blood circulation in the head, together with preventing cervical spondylosis and back pain.
And now the Sammi Therapeutic Pillow’s internal structure of walls and compartments maintain the height and shape of the buckwheat hulls. This structure creates a breathable environment to dissipate excessive body heat from the sleeper’s head, neck and shoulders.
