A pillow with buckwheat or a pillow with cherry pods
Pillow with buckwheat husks – it is recommended to use this pillow for a maximum of 3 years (because all natural materials lose their properties after that period and the user may have bad sleep and experience headaches, migraines and neck pain). The rustling of the scales during sleep will be a nuisance perhaps during the initial period of sleep until the user gets used to it. Choose pillows with chemically untreated buckwheat (that is, from a mountain area if possible). It is better to take a pillow with larger flakes than with smaller flakes. The buckwheat pillow should be exposed to strong sunlight at least once a month, and aired and exposed to the sun once a week. You usually get another pack of extra filling (about half a kilogram if the pillow is 2 kg) that can be added (or taken away) to the pillow (according to the owner’s needs). Buckwheat grain is rich in nutrients, mineral salts and vitamins. Composition: carbohydrates (72.9%), proteins (11.7%), vegetable oils (2.4%). Minerals: potassium (448 mg), phosphorus (282 mg), calcium (114 mg), also magnesium, sodium and iron in smaller quantities. Buckwheat also contains microelements (iodine, zinc, bromine), organic acids and rutin, a substance from the group of vitamin P (which is an excellent remedy for many diseases of the modern age, and above all: hypertension, rheumatism, glaucoma, diabetes and diseases that arise as a consequence of radioactive radiation. Buckwheat also has a positive effect in the treatment of blood flow diseases, enlarged veins, broken capillaries, poor memory. Buckwheat came from Asia to Europe in the 15th century during the Crusades. The Japanese call it “The plant of love”. Washing, ironing is prohibited. , dry cleaning, tumble drying and bleaching.
Pillow with cherry pits – cherry is especially beneficial against cardiovascular diseases. The healing pillow will relieve joint pain and be effective against nervousness and stress. Pillows can replace a hot water bottle and an ice pack (because the fibers that make up the core of the cherry retain heat and cold very well). A heated medical pillow made of cherry stones reduces muscle tension, stomach cramps, neck pain and stiffness, and frostbite. On the other hand, a cooled pillow helps in case of sprains, bruises, toothache, headache, migraine.
A pillow made of cherry beehives at home – wash the used beehives, spread them on trays and dry them in the air for a few days (but not in direct sunlight). Then put the baskets in a linen, cotton or silk bag. Shape the pillow as you wish, i.e. as it suits you best. A semicircular pillow is ideal for holding around the neck, and a rectangular pillow for other parts of the body. Fill the pillow case with 300-400 g of dry pits (that’s approximately six to eight kilograms of fresh cherries), sew it up, and you can use it immediately. It is also interesting that this type of pillow can be used for years without losing its properties. It is best to make a pillowcase with buttons or Velcro because this type of pillow with cherry stones should not be washed. It is important to note that the pillow is completely harmless for all ages and is always used on clean skin if applied directly. Never use the pillow after using ointments, gels, creams, etc.
