Self-Care Sunday

This week I want to talk about Tongue Cleaning. This is a simple and fast means of removing bacteria coating from your tongue and waking up your taste buds. It is thought that this helps reduce cavities, and lessens bad breath. Tongue Cleaning has it roots in traditional Ayurveda.

Done regularly you will notice an enhanced taste ability. Tongue scrapers are made of metal or plastic and are u shaped with blunted edges. Mine is copper. I use mine daily after I brush my teeth. They are very inexpensive and can be found online or at health food stores.

To use your tongue scraper, stick out your tongue and scrape the metal across your tongue from back to front. It’s that easy.
