Your morning routine just got even fresher. Not only does this Copper Tongue Scraper help cancel morning breath, tongue scraping (known in Ayurveda as Jihwa Prakshalana) is a simple, yet powerful practice bursting with health benefits:
Ayurvedic. Use this tongue scraper to drastically reduce bacteria that causes bad breath—it’s even more effective than brushing your tongue.
Who knew there were so many benefits in a simple piece or curved copper? This scraper can effectively:
- Remove coating on the tongue that leads to bad breath
- Eliminate undigested food particles from the tongue
- Enhance the sense of taste
- Promote overall oral and digestive health
- Gently stimulate internal organs
- Clear toxins and bacteria from the tongue
Gently scrape the tongue from the back to the front, rinsing each time, for several times or until clear. Proceed to rinse and brush teeth as usual. Pro tip: You can try oil pulling - the practice of swishing oil in your mouth - with coconut oil before tongue scraping for added Ayurvedic benefits.
Our copper tongue scrapers are made using 100% copper. This means it’s subject to oxidation. Copper gets a black or green residue because of oxidation - the removal of electrons from the substance. So if you notice a black residue on your tongue scraper, it’s a good sign! It means the copper is real.
This scraper is made of 100% copper instead of wasteful plastic. Because tongue scrapers are meant to be replaced every 3-4 months, using plastic means that for every person, 3-4 scrapers would be added to the dump where it can take up to 500 years to decompose. Copper can always be recycled and reused again and again.
Adding to your regular dental hygiene routine for extra cleaning and fresher breath.
