Jasmine’s Easy New Year’s Resolution: Tongue Tingling!

Love me, love my Tongue Tingler 😜 If you’ve got my book East by West or you follow me in any capacity, you’ll know I never skip my tongue scraping first thing in the morning. If you’ve never heard of this ancient Ayurvedic practice, hear me out! It’s such a simple addition to your daily routine, and the benefits are more than worth getting used to it.

Tongue Tingling, or tongue cleaning, consists of removing the not-so-gorgeous build-up that accumulates on the tongue overnight as soon as you wake up, using a U-shaped copper tool. This habit can help prevent halitosis, infections, colds, etc. and also enhance the flavour of your food, leaving you more satisfied after every meal. Copper is best to use because it has antibacterial properties and, looked after, it will serve you well for years and years to come — which is good, as once you start, you won’t want to go without it!

I’ve been doing it for 10 years this February since learning about it as one my first Ayurvedic lifestyle tips and tricks from my meditation teacher Gary Gorrow in Sydney, Australia. Check out the links below to get your own Tongue Tingler, find out the dos and don’ts and how to use it for best results — happy Tongue Tingling!
