Turmeric Essential Oil

Adam Michael has this to say “Turmeric essential oil, brings back memories of the bright yellow powder my mum used to add to rice. Growing up we never had anything other than ‘yellow’ coloured rice, in later years I discovered ‘white’ rice, imagine the shock! Humour aside what I didn’t know then was that this rich yellow powder called turmeric has phenomenal anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, is renowned as a natural wonder and has been (and still is) used for literally thousands of years.

The natural chemistry of Turmeric essential oil is very interesting, in excess of 80 different compounds exist and I think the reason why this oil and powder is such an effective healer maybe to do with the synergistic effects of these compounds. It contains vitamins such as C & E both of which have anti-oxidant properties and it also contains ‘curcumin’ this has valued anti-viral properties and the ability to speed up the healing process. Therapeutically it is also supposedly anti-cariogenic, anti-inflammatory and a mild adrenal stimulant. An essential purchase for the therapist.”
