why it works
The tongue is a host of various impurities, from food, fungi, dead cells, and bacteria that build up overnight, to undigested toxins and impurities that accumulate in the body—called ama in Ayurveda. It is the body's natural intention to expel these debris, but without the proper oral hygiene they can be reabsorbed, potentially causing imbalances, digestive problems, acne, and other health issues. Gently scraping the tongue helps to remove these toxins. Studies also show it can even improve sensation and taste.
To create the UMA Pure Palate Tongue Scraper, we harnessed the experience of our community artisans who have crafted these Ayurvedic Jihwa prakshalana (tongue purification) tools for centuries, and have a deep understanding of the structural integrity best suited to deeply cleanse the tongue, and with great ergonomic ease. Created from pure copper, which is celebrated in Ayurveda for its anti-microbial and detoxification properties, the UMA Tongue Scraper is the perfect addition to your oral hygiene ritual, and will delight new and veteran scrapers alike with its stunning design and ease of use.
how to use
Let your tongue loosely fall out of your mouth. Gently run the tongue scraper from the back of your tongue to the front. Rinse it off and repeat several times until the entire surface of the tongue has been accounted for. (Wash your scraper with warm water and soap before storing it in a dry place.)
"Same price as a stainless steel version, but it’s made from antimicrobial copper, which inhibits the growth of bacteria."
