Why & How To Use A Tongue Scraper

reading time: 3 min



If you are a frequent reader of my blog, you may know that I try to incorporate Ayurvedic practices into my daily routine. That includes oil pulling, drinking boiled water, adding turmeric to my morning oatmeal – and using a tongue scraper after brushing my teeth. Sounds scary? Don't worry, it's actually totally pain free and easy to do! 

Tongue scraping is an ancient Ayurvedic method to improve oral health and hygiene. Did you know that almost half of our oral bacteria live on and in the deep crevices of our tongue?!

Once you get over the gag-urging feeling of sticking a U-shaped metal piece in your mouth and seeing the gross gunk that was coating your tongue, you will be left with a squeaky clean feeling tongue and a fresh taste in your mouth :)
