Tongue scraping, or tongue cleansing, is an important Ayurvedic ritual that should be performed daily, preferably in the morning after we've woken up. Please see our dinacharya for information on Ayurvedic daily habits.  

It is said that the white coating on your tongue in the mornings, is undigested food particles that can cause bad bacteria to build, leading to bad breath. Undigested food, in Ayurveda, is called Ama, and a build of Ama is said to lead to all sorts of health conditions, in fact, they say almost every health condition is caused because of undigested food which is considered a toxic substance. 

By gently scraping the tongue every morning, it not only removes ama but stimulates the digestion by activating all acupressure points on the tongue.

Method:

Holding both handles, gently scrape the tongue from back to front about 10 times, running the scraper under the tap to remove any residue after each scrape.

Because this scraper is made from pure copper, you may find that it discolors, if you wish to bring it back to its former luster, simply wipe some baking soda and white vinegar over it with a damp cloth.
