Turmeric Essential Oil – Curcuma longa – is a perennial tropical plant, native to India and Indonesia.
Turmeric Essential Oil is a well rounded oil with a yellow hue, distilled from the root by CO2 extraction.
The oil is very strong so little goes a long way.
Blend Turmeric oil with an equal amount of a light carrier oil and massage into the skin for a glowing effect with regular use in a carrier oil of your choice. The dark colour of the oil can penetrate your skin which may give it a darker hue if used in the same spot over time.
If you are feeling stressed, diffuse 2-3 drops in warm water and inhale deeply.
Turmeric oil has the strong aroma of the plant and sometimes is used as a substitute to improve health.
Turmeric essential oil can be used in soap which may benefit the skin from its plant properties.
Much has been written on the therapeutic use of Turmeric Essential Oil as it has been made popular in the traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine – demonstrating 3000 years of natural healthcare.
Our advice is to keep your Turmeric Essential Oil in a cool place below 30° and out of the reach of children. Do not ingest. Seek advice if pregnant.
