Copper Tongue Scraper

  • The Bambaw copper tongue scraper ensures that you start your day feeling as fresh and clean as possible! Cleansing of the tongue originated thousands of years ago in the Indian medical system of Ayurveda. It is now gaining in popularity in Europe as it is a good way to take care of oral hygiene and prevent bad breath.

    Adding the use of a tongue scraper to your daily routine helps the body eliminate toxins that have accumulated in the mouth overnight.

    The benefits of the tongue scraper at a glance:

    1. Clears toxins & bacteria from the tongue
    2. Helps remove coating on the tongue that leads to bad breath
    3. Helps eliminate undigested food particles from the tongue
    4. Enhances the sense of taste
    5. Promotes overall oral & digestive health

    The Arista tongue scrapers are sustainably produced in India and are made from pure copper which is known for its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.

    How to use
    If you wish to sterilize your tongue scraper, simply submerge it in boiling water for 5 minutes, afterwards remove the tongue cleaner carefully and allow it to cool before using. Dry thoroughly to avoid oxidation.

    Start at the far back of your tongue and progressively scrape toward the front of your tongue to remove the white coating. Repeat as much as needed. Don't put too much pressure when scraping. Rinse the collected phlegm abundantly with water. Dry the copper tongue scraper with a towel—water will oxidize the copper and leave stains if you don’t dry it.

    The best time to use the tongue scrapper is immediately after waking up. As the body detoxicates during the night, a lot of toxins are evacuated through the tongue.

    Oxidation of copper
    Because copper is an alloy, it will change color when exposed to other elements. This is known as patina, a thin coating that forms naturally in a process known as oxidation.

    If the copper has been exposed to air, it will form a dark patina. If exposed to water, it will form a greenish-blue patina, known as verdigris. This discoloration is perfectly natural, and does not impact the efficacy of the product nor the coppers antibacterial properties.

    However, if you wish to keep your tongue scraper looking as good as new, a few simple steps may be taken to return it to its original color:

    1. Place 1 tablespoon of salt in 1 cup of white vinegar
    2. Make a paste by adding flour. Mix together well.
    3. Apply the paste to the tarnished areas
    4. Leave for 15 to 30 minutes
    5. Rinse with warm water and polish

    If you don't have salt and vinegar to hand, you may also want to use lemon juice with baking soda.

About the brand


In 2015, twin brothers Max and Augustin were shocked by the scope of plastic pollution. They asked themselves, how to live their lives and create as little waste as possible, while empowering others to do the same. Their conclusion was simple: Offering alternatives to wasteful single-use products to tackle pollution at its source.

Bambaw is determined to have a carbon neutral supply chain. To achieve this, they calculate the total environmental impact of their supply chain. Together with the Carbon Trust, they map down the journey of every product from production till the arrival at the customer. The shipping method, the travelled kilometres and weight are monitored to give an accurate picture of the emissions. Bambaw has chosen to offset their impact on the climate by supporting an environmental project in Malawi.

Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world where most of the population uses biomass (wood, charcoal, manure or crop residues) for their cooking. Unfortunately, burning these resources has a noticeable impact on the environment and releases greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Bambaw supports a climate project that introduces highly efficient ceramic cookstoves to the people. The ceramic stoves help the population reduce the consumption of biomass to half of the current consumption.
