My Personal Pick:
My personal pick isn’t any of the exact models above, but made the Comfy Comfy the #1 review above. So what is different about my personal favorite in the contest for best organic buckwheat pillow?
Well it is the size and what came with it that I used to really get the best value for my money.
I picked the queen size pillow because of the full 20 x 30 inches design and filled with 10 pounds of organic buckwheat hulls. In addition to that they give you an extra 2 pounds for adjustments.
Before I give you my full review on this pillow it is important to fill you in on my personal criteria I look for any type of pillow that I use.
I have a short list of critical features that any pillow I use is required to meet in order for me to get the best night’s sleep.
The pillow must be able to stay cool at night. I am a hot sleeper and I cannot get good rest on a pillow that I am always turning over to find that cool spot.
Okay if you are one of those hot sleepers raise your hand, I know I am not alone here on this point.
The pillow must be able to provide great support to my head and neck. However, I like my pillows on the thin side, just tall enough to align my spine and neck correctly.
I have been in a couple of car accidents over the years that I have left me with some neck issues. This is a super critical feature for me.
I prefer a pillow to be made of toxin free materials. Pillows made from organic materials bare the most weight when I am looking at the construction.
I look at the company itself and make sure they stand behind their products. So how can you tell if the company is trust worthy?
Look at the warranty, return policy and any risk free trial period. The return policy should be your top concern.
If they offer free return for at least the first 30 days then that is plenty of time to tell if the pillow works for you.
The Queen Comfy Comfy Review:
Keeping Me Cool:
So why did I put this as my favorite pick for the best organic buckwheat pillow? Let start with did this pillow keep me cool at night?
Yes, it did, and here is the science behind to support that claim. The great thing about using the buckwheat hulls is that the air circulates around those hulls.
Keeping good air movement takes away body heat leaving you with a cool feeling. Ok I know you are going to ask so go ahead. How many times did I have to turn my pillow over to find a cool spot.
Well, that first couple of nights I did it out of habit I think more than anything. After that first few nights, I found myself sleeping longer without waking up hot.
Now being a little OCD and older, I do have to get up and use the restroom a couple of times a night. Thus my return to bed I often still rotate the pillow to get a fresh spot.
However, I am no longer waking up because I am hot and flipping it over.
I am going to put a check-mark in the win column for keeping me cool.
Okay, you know from above I require just the right support for my head and neck. You will also remember from above that I prefer a much thinner pillow.
This Comfy Comfy Queen pillow comes packed with 10 pounds of organic buckwheat hulls. With an additional 2 pounds of extra if you require a more firm pillow.
I actually took nearly 3 pounds of buckwheat hulls out of this pillow to make it a thin version that I wanted. This was easy to do and makes this pillow totally adjustable to any firmness.
In addition to this incredible feature, I discovered a real nugget of gold. Okay, it wasn’t actual gold but it did provide me with additional value as you will see.
Tip For Extra Value:
I wished I could tell you that I had planned the following from the moment I ordered this pillow. But, that would be an untruth. I discovered this by accident and wanted to share it with you as an additional benefit.
When I got the pillow down to the correct firmness (very thin) I had 3 pounds I removed from the pillow and the 2 extra pounds they sent with it for more firmness if needed.
I seen this 5 pounds and thought wow that is such a waste what will I do with this extra? My first thought was to save it and use it when the pillow wears out.
Well I found in my research that these pillows last an incredible long time. Therefore, that thought died out and I just put this extra in a bag and saved.
After the first week I truly was loving this pillow, so much in fact one day I was sitting on the couch with my lumbar support pillow behind me.
I mentioned to my wife as we talked, I wished this lumbar pillow provided the same support as my buckwheat pillow.
My wife is incredibly talented and creative as she told me you have the extra buckwheat hulls why not use them.
I said to her, “that is a great idea, could you make me a cylinder type pillow like this one but with the buckwheat hulls”?
This is where her genius came out, she said “why don’t you just unzip that one and pull the foam out and fill with the buckwheat hulls”.
I grabbed my lumbar support pulled off the zippered cover and filled with my buckwheat hulls. Presto, I had a buckwheat hull lumbar support as well.
Extra Hulls Part 2:
I still had buckwheat hulls left even after creating the new lumbar support pillow. To make this long story a bit shorter for you, I bought cheap neck support travel pillow that had a zippered cover, pulled the foam out, and filled it with buckwheat hulls.
I now have a buckwheat travel pillow that I use in the car and planes when traveling.
Head & Neck Support:
I am making another check-mark as a clear winner in support. Not only did this amazing pillow support my head and neck.
It also supported my wallet; by allowing me to get 3 pillows out of this one purchase. Now this will not work for everyone. However, for people who requiring a softer feeling thin pillow you will remove some hulls.
If you choose to make extra pillows like myself, you will see the value of buying this queen-size pillow, which supplies an additional 2 pounds of organic hulls with purchase of pillow.
That is why I considered this an exceptional value in the list of best buckwheat pillows.
Comfy Comfy The Company:
A company that stands behind their products is the final thing I considered. But, there are some interesting things about this company.
First, this small company if family owned and operated employing around 10 people. I do enjoy supporting small businesses and love to see family business excel.
All of their products are handmade with high quality workmanship displayed in each pillow.
Comfy uses only organic buckwheat grown in the United States. The hulls are air cleaned only without the use of any fumigants. This is just another reason why this pillow ended up on the best buckwheat pillow review.
There are free returns offered so this company stands behind their products, which is one of my final criteria. This makes this purchase risk free.
The advice I always give is always check the current return policy before you place the order.
If you were keeping score along the way on my personal experience with the Comfy Queen size pillow with extra organic buckwheat hulls then you know I am highly satisfied.
This pillow provided excellent support for my head and neck and aligned my spine perfect. I did enjoy getting the pillow to just the right softness by removing the necessary amount of hulls.
Being able to adjust the firmness this easy is a big plus for this pillow. Just as reminder, if you prefer a more firm pillow then adding the hulls will be necessary. In addition, this pillow comes with an extra 2 pounds of hulls.
Lastly, this pillow sleeps so cool as I mentioned above. I am very pleased with the way in which this pillow allows air to circulate. It is a pleasure sleeping on this pillow.
It’s time to reap the benefits of this luxury pillow. Try this for yourself and see the benefits of the best buckwheat pillow, you won’t be disappointed.
