Scraping the tongue first thing each morning is proven to be the most efficient way to remove the dead bacteria that collects on top of the tongue each night. This not only freshens one’s breath, but also rids these toxins before they are reabsorbed back into the system. Our Stainless Steel Tongue Scraper is suitable for all body-types (i.e. Vata, Pitta and Kapha).
Tongue scraping is not recommended if there are any cuts or sores on the tongue. If there are raised papillae (taste buds), make sure to be gentle over these areas. Otherwise, tongue scraping is highly recommended for individuals of all shapes, sizes and ages.
*Please note that it is only recommended to scrape the tongue in the morning and never before bed.
Tongue scraping should be performed directly after getting out of bed each morning. Clean the scraper before each use. Take the clean scraper and place the curved back end at the back of the tongue. Slide the scraper down to the tip of the tongue and rinse off any residue. Repeat this process 7-10 times each morning, making sure to get all areas of the tongue.
