Halfmoon - Pillow Talk

Do you sleep on your side and wake up with neck and shoulder pain?

Your pillow may be the culprit.

Most pillows were not designed to properly support your head and neck when sleeping on your side. As a result, your shoulder is crushed, your spine is misaligned, and your posture is compressed.

Pillow

Enter the Buckwheat Sleeping Pillow.

This traditional Japanese pillow fills the space between your ear and the bed with just the right amount of support, keeping your shoulder open and your spine aligned.

 

The result: Side sleepers like you sleep more comfortably.

Why Buckwheat Hulls?

  • Buckwheat hulls can be shifted to add support where you want it
  • Buckwheat hulls allow air circulation, keeping your head cool to decrease night sweats
  • Buckwheat hulls are naturally hypo-allergenic (unlike feathers or wool)
  • Buckwheat is grown without pesticides, making it a sustainable choice

Treat yourself to a good night’s rest with the Buckwheat Sleeping Pillow.

As our beaches and parks get shut down, the preciousness of nature seems even more important. If anything will keep us sane and healthy right now it is the forests, the trees and the wide-open seas. My hope is that we always take the time to observe the beauty of nature. Even if we are locked inside, we can still look up at the clouds and the stars; and see the immense beauty that we are a part of. We can feel the gift of the green leafy trees in every breath we take.
