My main essential oil stockist not only added a new one to the range recently, but discounted it heavily – you don’t have to shout ‘try me!’ any louder, really 😉
Turmeric is something I’m very familiar with from cooking. It’s said to have anti-cancer properties, anti-alzheimer benefits, improves liver health, and is also an anti-inflammatory.
For me, the oil is for either the oil burner or occasionally a massage or bath, with a carrier oil. In the latter cases, the warming oil can be good for joint problems. It’s also said to help with depression and anxiety, and colds.
I wasn’t sure how similar this would smell to the more familiar spice, but it’s pretty much the same – not overwhelmingly stronger or more potent. I look forward to trying it in a few blends, eg with other spices such as black pepper or ginger; to counteract sweeter scents such as ylang ylang or vanilla; or as a counterpoint to zingy orange or grapefruit.
