Copper Tongue Cleaner


Tongue cleaning, also known as tongue scraping, is the daily Ayurvedic ritual of gently scraping unwanted toxins & residue off of the tongue. Traditionally this practice is done with copper for its powerful antiseptic effects. Tongue cleaning eliminates the bacteria which cause bad breath, draws ama, or toxins, out of the body & improves digestion by stimulating the taste buds. Experience the ultimate oral hygiene tool!

If irritation occurs, discontinue use.


This daily ritual is best done first thing in the morning, prior to eating or drinking. Hold the tongue cleaner on either side. Extend the tongue out of the mouth & inspect for a coating. Place the tongue cleaner towards the back of the tongue & gently scrape the ama or film forward & out of the mouth. Wash the ama off of the tongue cleaner & repeat until the tongue is clean. Follow with PAAVANI Oil Pulling Oil.


To clean the tarnish from your copper tongue cleaner, we recommend rubbing it with a lemon wedge covered in salt and wiping off with a clean, dry cloth. You may also clean your tongue cleaner using a boiled mixture of vinegar and salt (approximately 3 parts vinegar to 1 part salt). Let your tongue cleaner soak in the solution for 10-15 minutes, wipe with a dry cloth and rinse with water.
