A Brief History of the Buckwheat Pillow


For two centuries buckwheat pillows have been the secret of the Orient. One hundred years ago the secret came to North America through Canada and has quickly spread throughout the continent. The success lies in the therapeutic nature of the organic buckwheat hulls. While supporting the neck and spine the hulls allow for fresh air to circulate throughout the pillow. Temperatures are balanced, keeping the head cool in the summer and warm in the winter.


Originally found in the Mediterranean countries, the perennial herb lavender has long been prized for its perfume and medicinal qualities. Used by the ancient Romans for its healing and antiseptic qualities. The effects of the lavender aroma are calming, soothing and relaxing. The middle tone aroma can be described as floral, sweet and woody. Throughout history this herb has been used to counteract anxiety, headaches, insomnia, stress and tension.


Chamomile has been used in herbal remedies for thousands of years. The Anglo-Saxons believed it to be a sacred plant due to its beneficial properties. The herb has also earned a place of high regard in some systems of traditional medicine. In Aromatherapy the essential oil is considered in general to be calming, rejuvenating, relaxing and an aid to creativity. The aroma of chamomile is complex and difficult to define in a few words.
