Pratyusha – Ayurvedic Tongue Scraper



Used in Ayurveda to clean the tongue in the morning. The tongue scraper helps remove coating on the tongue (called Ama) which contributes to bad breath and accumulation of bacteria.

How to use

The tongue scraping or Pratyusha, is one of the key activities in Dincharya (everyday ritual). It is  recommended to be used first thing in the morning.

Take the curved edge as far back as comfortable on the tongue and scrape forward. Work the middle and each side of the tongue, using approximately 7 strokes. If you find this induces the gag reflex, try being more gentle and starting further forward on the tongue.
