Ayurvedic Tongue Cleaner

Tongue cleaners are used to scrape the tonge (gently) and they can be made of anything from tortoise shell to sterling silver. The method involves inserting the tongue scraper at the back of the tongue and pulling forward. Rinse off residue between each scraping but be sure to repeat this several times. Rinse your mouth or use a mouthwash afterwards.
