A regular and thorough oral hygiene routine is now a given in our society; however, the ancient Ayurvedic tongue scraping is not widely practiced.

Used to counter bad breath, improve digestive health and enhance flavour reception, it can be an instantly rewarding exercise when used daily.

It is recommended to clean the tongue with a silver, copper or stainless steel variety, with a smooth and curved blade.

Gently pull the scraper from the back of your tongue to the front, and rinse in between strokes if there is excess accumulation.
