Turmeric Essential Oil
Cousin to Ginger, the Curcuma longa plants from which this spicy, pungent essential oil was derived were grown in India. The oil, like the herb (which has traditionally been used to support and balance the digestive, integumentary (skin), and immune systems) can be added to lotions, soaps, serums, body butters, EO blends, etc. -- the possibilities are endless.
Factoid: While the herb is widely used in cooking, its beneficial chemicals (especially curcumin) are poorly absorbed by our digestive systems. (Combining freshly ground black pepper with Turmeric helps our bodies absorb the curcumin somewhat.) The best way to get our bodies to soak up the curcumin and turmerones is through our skin!!! This makes the essential oil a great addition to a variety of topical products.
