A pillow with a cotton filling is another kind. Such pillows are usually flatter than the other pillows, but they don't hold their shape and take the form of your head. Nowadays, cotton pillows are a choice of many people, as they confess their body rests better in its natural position with their help. If you prefer to sleep on this type of pillows it's better to change it instead of washing it. Cotton pillows become too flat with the weight of the body after some time. As a result, a pillow becomes water soaked when washed that makes a breeding ground for mold.
Pillows have been with us for a long time, but they started off as a luxury item in the bedrooms of the wealthy and powerful. At times they have been banned (as in Tudor England, when women were only permitted to use them in childbirth) and they have been filled with material as diverse as wood (I've personally seen wooden pillows, in Samoa) and straw. And today, while many of them are standard bag filled with foam, there are a wide range of different pillows and the filling varies from natural feathers to man-made space age materials approved by NASA.
Talking about bedding there are many throws and decorative pillows available, and these will brighten up any bedroom or lounge. Again, this is an international idea; they are almost universal in Afghan and Pakistani homes, for example. These are decorated with fabrics and designs we in the West may not prefer, but they are used in much the same was we use them here.
You will be amazed to know that earlier the pillows were only served to the wealthy people. Hay, fibers were used to rest the head. But nowadays the story is completely different. Bed pillows are common to see in every home. In addition to normal pillows you will also find anti snoring pillow, body pillows, reading pillows, nap bed pillows, buckwheat hul pillows foe bed & bedding furnishings as well as for your personal need. So there is a huge variety of bed pillows and it is not difficult to find the right one.
Apart from comfort, pillows offer a range of health benefits. Most pillows offer support for your spine and neck. Depending on the position in which you sleep, different pillows may be suitable. If you sleep on your back, you might be looking for a thin contour one to support your neck and spine. Apart from the universal benefit of the different pillows (supporting your neck and spine), there are certain pillows that specifically offer other types of health benefits. There are certain pillows that comprise of herbs such as Lupin. These benefit different areas of the body depending on where they are placed. Additionally, certain temperature sensitive pillows maybe used to offer temperature therapy. Another example of a therapeutic pillow is magnetic pillows. Magnetic fields are known to offer various health benefits such as improving the overall quality of your sleep, alleviating blockage and irritation in your sinuses and providing muscle relief by reducing strain.
Pillow experts caution that when choosing the right bed pillow, customers should be on the look out for pillows that contain fibers that can trigger allergies. Bed pillows that contain feathers or wool for example, may cause allergic reactions in some people who are already sensitive to these fibers. For this reason, it is very important to read the label that describes the types of fibers that a pillow contains before you buy it.
