Tongue Cleanse | Part 2

Updated: Aug 8


* SPOKEN WORD *


You must deeply consider a DAILY tongue cleanse if you're...

-8 years or older

Benefits include...

-Removal of toxins and bacteria from the mouth that cause bad breath

-A fresh sensation within the mouth

-Ensures tastebuds are active and healthy

-Meals and snacks become more tasty

-Stimulates the internal organs

-Supporting digestion


Essential supplies...

-You're going to need a tongue scrapper bundle, here is a link to mine

*If you dedicate yourself to a daily practice, It's recommended that you order a fresh bundle every six months to appropriately maintain oral health


Your process...

-Evaluate your tongue EVERY MORNING before brushing your teeth

*Your stainless-steel scraper is best to manage any cracks or redness

*Your copper scraper is best when you notice whitish/yellowish buildup; swelling; wavy or rippled indentations and/or teeth marks on the sides of your tongue; or a dull pale coloration.

-Clean the tongue scraper you need in the moment, with hot soapy water

*A link to my soap

-Open your mouth as wide as comfortable and extend your tongue to your maximum ability

-Hold your tongue scraper with both hands and face the loop side toward the back of your tongue

-Gently scrape your tongue from back to front, until you have stroked the entire surface 7 to 14 times

*Don't press too hard, remember this cleanse is gentle

*Rinse your scraper with warm water between each stroke to remove any buildup

-When you finish, rinse your month with warm water and wash your scraper with hot soapy water

*When you notice your copper scraper starting to tarnish, wash with lemon juice, lime juice, or ketchup, followed by hot soapy water


Fun facts...

-Your tongue provides a unique connection between your body and your mind as it's both a sensory organ for tasting and an organ of action, to produce sound for speech

-Experiencing your gag reflex is expected during this cleanse and it has added benefits in activating your salivary glands and digestive enzymes

Peace, Love, & Everlasting Protection!
