Words by Anny Schneider

The orange and very aromatic root of Turmeric is recognized as a powerful anti-inflammatory, sold in all possible forms in our natural stores.

In addition, it helps the liver by facilitating the digestion of fats.

Its essential oil diluted in a lipotropic vegetable oil, like safflower or sunflower, in localized massage on the sites of congestion, produces similar effects.

In the kitchen, it can be added at the end of cooking to rich dishes, exotic or not.

Origin of this essential oil

This organic essential oil of turmeric from Sri lanka is distilled from the roots of the plant.
