Often people ask, how to use a tongue scraper and find the whole contraption quite strange looking but really its as simple as it looks! The tongue scraper originates from India, specifically Ayurveda, the practise of ancient Indian medicine recommends tongue cleaning as an essential part of daily hygiene.
Tongue cleaning is meant to remove some of the millions of bacteria (up to 500 different types, decaying food debris, fungi (such as Candida), and dead cells, from the surface of the rear of the tongue.
Tongue cleaning is generally viewed as the solution for most cases of halitosis, or bad breath. Scientific studies have shown that in approximately 80-95% of cases, bad breath originates in the oral cavity, mainly from material on the rear of the tongue.
Tooth brushing and mouthwashes are not as effective as removing oral debris on the tongue, at best they mask bad breath. Tongue cleaning is by far the most effective way of combating bad breath.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hi Praise, Carrot oil, which is a carrier oil does have a slight ability to protect skin from the sun. However, it does not clear sunburn from your face or any of the oils you have mentioned. Coconut oil, Aloe Vera or Calendula oil might help. You can also apply essential oils that help sooth sun burn with either jojoba oil or sweet almond oil. The best essential oils for this would be lavender or peppermint. Hope this helps.

- Shatavari benefits for WomenHi D, indeed there is conflicting information on whether Shatavari can be taken during pregnancy or not. Some studies showed that Shatavari can affect milk supply during lactation, and that Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) has possible teratogenicity so it should be avoided in pregnancy. Other studies showed that Shatavari is an ingredient in most herbal teas which are recommended to be taken during pregnancy and breastfeeding. I would recommend that you consult your GP or a qualified herbalist who deals with pregnant women before taking anything, in case you are already taking some supplements/ drugs or herbs to help with your pregnancy.
