Banyan Botanicals Stainless Steel Tongue Cleaner
We’ve all heard about the importance of healthy teeth and gums, but what about the health of the tongue? After all, the tongue is the first major organ in the body to come into contact with food. Undigested food particles that linger upon the tongue—often manifesting as a white, thick coat—can prevent the tongue from fully tasting flavors. This coating can also cause unwanted toxicity within the body, bad breath, and poor oral hygiene.
According to Ayurveda, cleaning the tongue every morning is an important part of the daily oral hygiene routine, along with regular brushing and flossing of the teeth. Gently scraping the tongue with a tongue cleaner can effectively reduce the bacteria in the mouth that cause bad breath.

Ideally, a tongue cleaner is used every day, upon rising, and on an empty stomach. Hold the two ends of the tongue cleaner in both hands. Extend the tongue and place the tongue cleaner on the surface of the tongue, as far back as is comfortable.
Gently pull the tongue cleaner forward so that it removes the unwanted coating. Rinse the tongue cleaner and repeat as necessary, usually 3–5 times. Follow this step with oil pulling, and you are ready to start your day with a beautiful fresh mouth.
A note on cleaning your tongue cleaner: Stainless steel is naturally antimicrobial. Rinsing your tongue cleaner in hot water will suffice to keep it clean. For added measure, you can always wipe it down with an alcohol swab on occasion, but this is not necessary on a daily basis.
