Scraping the tongue is an Ancient Ayurvedic recommendation for oral health and the overall health of the body, mind and spirit.
Made from pure copper, which is highly valued in the tradition of Ayurveda because of its special properties, our Myga copper tongue scraper is particularly stable with a weight of about 35g and has a comfortable length of about 12 cm.
MATERIAL: 100% copper
Copper has been used for centuries as a bacteria-resistant metal, with new studies confirming these ancient practices.
Copper is one of the best metals to be used for tongue scraping as it helps to maintain good mouth health. The mouth is full of both good and not-so-good bacteria. Copper not only seems to be toxic to the bad bacteria, but it also provides important enzymes that are needed for the healthy microbes in the mouth to survive.
Use & Care
The Myga copper tongue scraper is made of 100% copper. Copper can oxidise naturally in the air, especially when it comes into contact with humidity or water. Due to this natural oxidation, copper can turn dark or black, and after a longer period of time even green. Copper rust can appear - these are harmless, natural processes and shouldn’t cause alarm.
To clean the Myga copper tongue scraper, rinse the scraper under water after each use, removing any debris or saliva.
*Tip* - Use a little lemon to remove any remaining dark oxidation stains – this will help the copper tongue scraper stay nice and clean and shine in its beautiful, natural copper tones. Ensure that your tongue scraper stays clean and dry between sessions.
