Time for a new pillow

Fancy trying a Buckwheat Pillow?

Filled with 100% natural buckwheat hulls heat treated and triple cleaned and graded before encasing in an organic cotton case. The Pillow is designed to support the head and neck whilst allowing air to circulate, keeping the head cool, which is beneficial to a relaxing nights sleep. The buckwheat hulls in the pillow move to conform with the hollow of your neck to place your head level with your spine promoting ideal posture. This can help with a variety of ailments including insomnia, headache, ratability, stiff neck and sluggishness.

WHY BUCKWHEAT HULL FILLING? The natural filling has many advantages over conventional fibber-fill, foam, or feather fillings. The most important quality for the relief of pain is that the material conforms to the exact contours of any part of your body providing a compliant passive 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. Other advantages of the buckwheat hull filling is 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 it the best value cervical pillow filling on the market. Long after other pillows have collapsed and worn out a buckwheat hull pillow will still be fully functional. Buckwheat hull pillows are also environmentally friendly Click here to find out more..

Tried sleeping on water?


The following information is provided by the BritishWaterbed Association

Waterbeds are the best sleep system we know to help our bodies relax and to provide maximum body support. They are comfortable, hygienic and durable. Discover a better way to sleep, night after night, year after year.

Waterbeds increase relaxation, meaning longer periods with less movement and fewer re-awakenings. Our bodies are, after all, over 80% water and we were surrounded by it for the first nine months of our lives. It's the gentlest and most supportive surface on which to sleep and relax, and can be heated to whatever temperature suits you best.
It can provide unusually helpful support for cavalescents, pregnant women or those with painful joint conditions. Spreading your weight evenly over its surface, it eliminates pressure points and the risk of bedsores.

For those suffering from serious asthma or just minor sinus problems due to dust-allergies, a waterbed can be the hygienic and easily mantainable solution.

All of us come up against back problems at one stage in our lives, whether it be a serious condition or a niggling complaint due to improper sleeping posture, a waterbed can afford relief and often a complete solution.

Due to even placement of body weight over a waterbed, they significantly reduces the risk of bedsores developing and puts less stress on the body during sleep and convalescence.
With soothing heat and even distribution of weight, waterbeds are incredibly kind on injured joints and those suffering from arthritis.

Due to all of the reasons listed above and many more, a waterbed is one of the most relaxing surfaces to sleep on, offering relief from many insomnia conditions that are caused by other more undetectable problems such as bad sleeping posture, coldness, uncomfortable mattresses, etc. A waterbed gives you the best chance to get a good nights sleep and wake refreshed and ready to go.

Of course waterbeds need special sheets and mattress covers. Should there be need, click here
