Contrary to popular belief, buckwheat hulls do not come from a grain like wheat, but from a fruit that is related to rhubarb. The hull itself is the husk that protects the seed from the harsh elements of nature. If you do not want to be exposed to chemical, using buckwheat hulls in your pillows is the answer. It has been known to ease headaches , snoring, muscle tension and neck pain.
If you are making your own pillow or any other pieces and wonder how much Buckwheat you need, multiply the dimensions in inches together ( length x width x height ) and divide by 192.
Example: For a pillow that measures 12" Wide, 24" long and 8" high you would calculate as such: 12 x 24 x 8= 2304 Then take the total amount which in this case is 2304 and divide it by 192.
2304 / 192 = 12
You will need 12 pounds of Buckwheat
